Summary17883: QueXML formatting cannot be changed

There is a hard-defined variable "style" in the quexmlpdf.php file.

If from the survey I go to menu Survey setting: Overview > Display/Export (button) > queXML PDF - path: "admin/export/sa/quexml/surveyid/xxxxxx".
Above style is loaded, I can modify it before exporting. The problem is that my configuration isn't saved anywhere. When I go back to exporting, it doesn't see my previous changes.

The second view inside the survey edition, go to the Survey menu: Responses. In the list, in one line, I click the "View response details as queXML PDF" icon. Tutja can't change style, it loads default from quexmlpdf.php.

I can confirm that the "Style" portion is currently not saved. I think originally this was due to XML content not playing nicely with the SaveSettings function.

I can also confirm that when using "View response details as queXML PDF", the export appears as default.

I'll work up a pull request soon that addresses these issues.

I've worked up a patch here:

Can you please give it a go and see if it works for you and then I will submit it to be included in the next LTS release.

I checked, the configuration is saved in the database and it works globally, but only on the administration panel side. I haven't tested XSS and SQL Injection.

Not working, in the participant results print page, after completing the survey, below is a fix that worked here. But I don't know if that's all.

Will it be corrected and implemented and when?

My apologies for this - it had fallen off my radar. Thank you for reminding me.

I've applied your patch and submitted a pull request here:

Code looks OK.
Master PR is pending. Maybe we can make the settings screen a screen of its own?

thanks @gabrieljenik .

I'm happy to work on a settings screen that is separate - maybe we could start a new bug/feature request for that and assign it to me? That could allow this PR to solve the current issue.

I guess best is to involve @c_schmitz into that decision :)
