This release adds support for odk parameters. Actually currently there is only one parameter supported and that is max-pixels which can be used to reduce the size of photographs taken in a form.
Open the form in the online editor and select “Parameters” as the property you want to change. Then find an image you want to reduce. Then set the max-pixels parameter to the size you want. For example:
The number is the maximum length in pixels of the long edge of the image.
- As well as SmapServer 17.08 you will need fieldTask version 5.06
- There is no support in xlsForm for parameters yet hence you will need to enter the parameter in the online editor as described above.
- You can consider parameters and appearance as doing very similar things . In the past appearance was used for many of the capabilities that odk will now be adding using parameters.
- Help is available in the reference guide. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5_SmpWlQYxvWlBoWkdiT3FrY1U/edit
