I would like to see a widget created similar to the distress appearance that allows the creator of the survey question to configure the following options:

  • The type of data collected (integer or double)
  • The increment between selectable options (1, 0.25, 0.1, etc)
  • Specify the smallest value that can be selected
  • Specify the largest value that can be selected
  • Choose the colour gradient if desired

I have the same need.

The Distress widget is brilliant as extremely visual ; being able to customize it would make it more powerful and widespread. The colors used by default have implicit meaning (green: good ; red: bad / grren : low ; red: strong, etc), which is not always a good match with the numbers associated to them (by default: red: large value).

I would like to use a version of Distress that is low value = red = bad/low and high value = good = green. The use case is to register tree helath state or damage asseessment.

The likert widget matches the need, but is much less visual and therefore less powerful.
