I have been experimenting with the Simple Calculated question type and have come to the conclusion that the collapsing of some of the form areas are making the interface harder to understand. An example of this is when you click the Generate button to create wildcards the form does an entire refresh. You then scroll back to where the button was and nothing seems to have changed. If you look carefully you will notice there is a new heading that says Wild card(s) values. Click on the triangle next to the heading to expand it and you see the new wildcards.
I suggest that process would be slightly improved by ensuring that section was expanded so it displayed the new wildcards. I have updated the question edit form under
If you are generating a large number of wildcard values it will make the form more crowded, but if you are doing that you probably know what you are doing and will know how to collapse form sections. The usability of the form could probably be improved by adding some Ajax magic, but that is probably complex. Another idea is to add a settings.php file for the question type and make the expandable sections settable by the administrator.
What do the questionistas think of this?
