    HTML running off screen and covering some labels

    [edited]
    I've created the html file and have embedded it in my questionnaire item using the background field. Problem is that the text runs off the right side of the screen and now I can not see some of my button labels.

    See www.empirisoft.com/Support/showthread.php?p=700 (esp the section on added parameters).

    But short answer is: To avoid the html running off the right side of the screen, you can add a width parameter to the background field like this:
    Code:
     
    myhtml.htm (w.9)
    And the html background will hide some objects on the screen--usually just labels. You can avoid this by setting an explicit height for the html like this:
    Code:
     
    myhtml.htm (w.9,h.2)
    The latter will set a window for the html that is 90% of the screen width and 20% of its height.

    See attached sample.

    For the first questionnaire item I sent you, labelled "ses instructions", for the parameter that you put on it (w.9), the wording is still running off the page. I've been on vacation so I haven't been able to check it until now.

    The other parameters work for the other files I sent you!

    Out of curiosity, try w500 or something like that instead of w.9 and see if that changes anything.

    I tried w500 and it pushed to left too much, so I played with it and w600 works perfectly! Also, I am using the 2006 version of media lab. Thanks for all of your help!
