Using Headers and Footers in Remark Web Survey

You may add headers and footers to your web form that can include images, text labels and lines. You may define the header and footer once, and then apply them to the desired web pages. Headers and footers are useful for static information you want to display either at the top (header) or bottom (footer) of a web form.

Once a header or footer is created, you can choose which pages you want the header and/or footer to appear on within a web form. By default, headers and footers are turned on for all standard pages. Therefore, if you define a header and footer, they will automatically appear on each web form page. You can turn off the header and footer for any individual page by going into the page's properties and unchecking the box to display headers and footers.

The header and footer nodes are added to the tree view every time you create a new web form. To use them, add elements of your choice to the header and/or footer and then determine which pages will include the header and footer.

To format the header or footer:

The only item you can format on a header or footer is the number of columns
. By default, headers and footers have one column. If you would like to adjust this setting so that you can place elements in the header or footer going across the page (in columns), you can access the header or footer's properties and then change the column setting.

  1. Access the header or footer properties by either double clicking the header or footer node in the tree view, right clicking the header or footer node in the tree view and then selecting Properties or selecting the header or footer node in the tree view and the selecting Properties from the View tab in the Ribbon.
  2. Change the Columns setting to the desired number of columns.
  3. Click the OK button to save the changes. You may now start adding elements to the header or footer.

To add elements to a header or footer:

  1. Click the header or footer in the tree view to select it.
  2. From the Ribbon, select the Insert tab and then choose the element you wish to insert: Label, Image or Line. Remark Web Survey 5 also has an option of Multimedia.
  3. Enter or adjust the properties of the element, as described in the User's Guide then if desired, use the Format button to further format the element (e.g., color, positioning, etc.).
  4. Click the OK button to save your changes.

The added element will be added to the header or footer section of the tree view and will be visible in the HTML Preview.

To display headers and footers on web form pages:

Once you have setup a header or footer, you may choose the pages on which to display the header or footer. By default, headers and footers are turned on for all standard web form pages.

  1. Access a page's properties by either double clicking the page node, right clicking the page node and selecting Properties or clicking the page node and then selecting Properties from the View tab in the Ribbon.
    Note: You may place headers and footers on multiple web form pages at one time by either: 
       a.  Clicking each page while holding down the Ctrl key on the keyboard to select multiple pages.
       b.  Clicking the container node in the tree if you wish to select all pages of a certain type.
    For example, if you want to turn on headers/footers for all standard pages, double click the Standard Pages node in the tree view.
  2. Mark the checkbox for Display the web form header on the page to turn on page headers. Mark the checkbox for Display the web form footer on the page to turn on page footers.
  3. Click the OK button to save your changes.

The selected pages will have headers and/or footers displayed on them in the HTML Preview.
