Labels for repeated groups

Hi, Ive just started out with Commcare and hoping someone can point me to
where I can find out how to label a repeated group. I want to ask a series
of questions about a patient’s previous pregnancies. I’ve created a
repeated group but I want to label it so that the mobile worker knows
whether these questions are about the 4th or 5th pregnancy. I found
something on position function using calculate condition of a hidden value
but was wondering if there was something a bit more detailed? thanks

Hi Nicola,

Please see the documentation here
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Using+Repeat+Groups+in+the+Form+Builder

··· - in particular you can use the position() function in a label inside the repeat group to say "Please add the data for the *nth* pregnancy"

Cheers,
Will

thanks. I read that article but Im not sure which box I put that in. Do I
put another label inside the repeated group or does it go somewhere else? I
really appreciate your help! thanks

Yes, adding a label with that in an output value

would
work fine.

thanks but I dont need a hidden value calculation. I ask the surgeon in the
previous question how many pregnancies he would like to capture details
for. That question ID is no_of_pregnancies_captured. I’ve tried putting
this in the label box

Please enter the details for the < no_of_pregnanices_captured
*=“position(…)+1”
/> pregnancy. *

But it doesnt work. Sorry!

An output value as linked above is different from a hidden value - it is
the syntax used to display some value in a label. As the documentation
mentions the syntax is so in your case you would want:

Please enter the details for the < output value=“position(…)+1” />
pregnancy.

Will

Im really sorry but I still cant make this work. Ive created an x - a
hidden value which is linked to the answer of the question “how many
pregnancies do you want to enter details for?” and then below it I have a
label
Please enter the details for the < show_pregnancy_number =“position(…)+1”/>
pregnancy.

The show pregnancy label is the link to the x hidden value.

When I go to the app preview it doesn’t work at all.

Sorry, thanks nicola
