ZSURVEY will need some folders created in your project to store files for surveys, responses and media. The following is a list of folder that you will need to create in your project:
- Surveys Folder:
This folder should be created if you are using XML files to store the surveys (i.e. you don't need this folder if you intend to store the surveys in a database). You need to add the survey XML files to this folder. Your web controls should point to this folder using a relative path or exact path so it can bind the survey to the web controls.
- Responses Folder:
This folder should be created only if you will use physical XML files to store the responses (i.e. you don't need this folder if you intend to store the responses in a database). This folder should store the user responses of the survey. The responses will be saved as XML files with unique GUID names.
- CSS Folder:
This folder will contain the CSS style sheets of ZSURVEY web controls. Copy the CSS styles sheets from "Theme" folder in the extracted package to this CSS folder. You will need to link the web controls to the appropriate CSS style sheet file by adding a link tag.
- Media Folder:
This folder is required for the editions providing media attaching feature. The folder will contain the uploaded media files of each survey which be displayed for each question when the user answer the survey. The Survey Builder Web Control will save the media files of each question to this folder. The Survey Viewer Web Control will fetch the different media files attached to the questions from this folder as well.
