Changing the look of the interview
Applying a template
Templates can quickly change the look of your whole survey. You can apply templates to the layout of whole pages and the layout of individual questions.
1 In the Routing section, enter the following highlighted text at the top of your script to add the Blue Card template.
Routing(Web)
IOM.LayoutTemplate = "Card_Blue.htm"
2 Press F5 to run the script to see how the template modified the appearance of the interview in the browser pane.
The Blue Card template is included in the default DDL installation, in the [INSTALL_FOLDER]\IBM\SPSS\DataCollection\7\DDL\\Scripts\Interview\Templates folder. Since this is defined in UNICOM Intelligence Professional as the Global Templates Folder, UNICOM Intelligence Professional knows to look for the template there.
Applying a style
Styles offer detailed control of the appearance of every aspect of your survey.
1 Enter the following highlighted text at the top of the Routing section to make the survey title dark blue, 36 point size, and bold.
Routing(Web)
IOM.LayoutTemplate = "Card_Blue.htm"
SurveyTitle.Label.Style.Color = "darkblue"
SurveyTitle.Label.Style.Font.Size = 36
SurveyTitle.Label.Style.Font.Effects = FontEffects.feBold
2 Press F5 to run your script. Open the browser pane and see how the script looks.
