Usage in calculations

  • With the Order List question, you can add multiple options and give them a numerical value. When you use the question reference in a formula, the value of the sum of every item selected is returned.
  • To check if a specific item is selected in a multiple selection, you can use the reference QX{IA}. This returns the value of the option if it's selected. Otherwise, it returns 0.
  • To return the label of the selected option(s) in a formula, use QX{label}.


This element especially comes in handy when you want to create an online order form.
