Hidden Question Still Showing - JS Advice?

LBG TNCommunity Member Qubie ✭

I am trying to hide a question for all participants. This code is working, but it flashes the question for a fraction of a second (not ideal). Can anyone suggest code to make sure the question is fully hidden? I cannot use display logic because the question needs to actually occur - just out of the participants' view.

Qualtrics.SurveyEngine.addOnReady(function () {

  var $this = jQuery(this.questionContainer);

  $this.hide(); //this line will hide the question for participants

    If you're doing nothing else apart from hiding the question, use the TRUE-FALSE display logic, setting it to false.

    Alternatively, you could try this code:

    Qualtrics.SurveyEngine.addOnload(function () {

    If you're still not satisfied with the results, then add this to the top of your question HTML:

    <div style="margin-bottom:100vh"></div>

    This will push everything down by an amount equal to the hieght of the window. So, effectively nothing is visible.

    You can use CSS to avoid the flashing/scrolling down, however, these styles will also be effective in the survey editor. So, unless you know how to work with CSS, I would recommend using one of the 4 methods at your disposal.
