How can I add custom text to different numeric values in a numeric slider?

    I would like to add a numeric slider to my page and have custom text in a label below the slider that changes with each numeric choice.  The text will be between 1 and 2 senteces long.

    The slider would have a min=0, max=4. 


    0="I never feel fatigued"

    1="I rarely feel fatigued after a full night's sleep"

    2="I often feel fatigued during the day but am still able to keep up with most activities of daily living"

    3="I feel fatigued constantly but it does not prevent me from working.

    4="I am only able to stay awake for 3 hours at a time. I no longer work outside the home as a result of my severe fatigue"


    Since I will have 5 questions along the same lines it will not fit on the screen to have each of the five sliders along with their complete descriptions, so I want to have the description for the chosen number to show up under the slider to save space.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to accomplish what you need with the Numeric Slider widget. However, I found that it is possible with the Slider widget, using the Text tool to enter the custom text/message and by setting up show/hide conditions.

    Please take a look at this form:

    If you think that can fit your needs you can clone my form and check its settings so that you can know. Or simply inform us if you need further assistance. Here is how to clone a form: How to clone an existing form from a URL

    Thank you! This would be almost perfect for my needs - do you know if there is a way to change the look of the slider so that it has each one of the numbers (0,1,2,3,4) labeled on the slider?

    It appears there's no easy way to accomplish that. Hopefully one of our colleagues can devise a workaround.
