Video Tutorials

This page will be your starting place for Video Tutorials.

We're just starting out, so we only have a couple of videos. We hope to have many more in the future.
These videos will raise awareness for new or specific functionality and we hope they can help you when learning to use this functionality.

We would love to hear your comments. You can leave one in YouTube if you click on "YouTube" in the bottom right corner when you are viewing the video.

How to...

If you want to have a closer look at the sample that is used in the video, you can find the sources that were used - and for some videos an extended example as well - in the Samples that are shipped with the system.

Runtime Shortcuts

Runtime shortcuts can be used by an interviewer or respondent while they are filling out the questionnaire. This video shows you how you can create these shortcuts in two easy steps.

Session Data

Session data is actually supposed to be a black box. You don't need to know what happens or why, just that it happens.
But given the number of questions we get about it, we have made this video to explain it a little bit.

It explains what session data is, how it works and what you can do with it.
Session data is always available in Blaise 5 if you have a primary key.
There are no sources for this video as you can use any data model to test this.

We expect a basic overall understanding of Blaise 5.

Layout Language

This video explains how to use the Layout Language in Blaise 5. It gives a brief preview of what the Layout Language syntax looks like and how you can add it.
Layout Language is available from Blaise 5.3.0.
We expect a basic knowledge of the Layout Designer.

Edit Masks

Our first video explains how to use edit masks in Blaise 5. Edit mask functionality has been available from Blaise 5.2.5.
We expect a basic knowledge of the Layout Designer, Resource Editor, Text Roles and Mapping.
It gives a step-by-step view of what edit masks can do and how you can use them.
