Adding dynamic size table to Interactive Form

Former Member

Hello everyone,

I have a node with multiple elements that i would like to show in an interactive pdf form.

I'm using the Adobe LiveCycle Designer to do it, but i'm only managing to bind "solo" variables, not tables.

How can i associate dynamically a table with several lines to a pdf interactive form ? I tried a list box but i still only get the first element shown in the box. Am i doing anything wrong ?

Thank you in advance.

Basically the general way to add a table to INteractive form is by adding a subform elemet to a subform element and(i mean subform in a subform), now map the fields u want to be displayed as a table.

For the fisrt subform set the LayoutType-Flow Content,Flow DirectionTable.

Then select the allow page breaks within the content option.

And the binding should be Normal.

for the second subform:

LayoutType-Flow Content,Flow DirectionTable row.

Now also select the option allow page breaks.

Then for Binding tab: select the Repeat Subform for each data Item, then min count=1.

And now if ur table columns contain names like abc, def and xyz.

Then in the script editor code something like this

abc[*]; under show: initilaze, language: Formcalc and Run at: client

Hope this should work out for you.

let me know if u have any more queries.

Tank you for your fast answer, Lohitha. What do you mean by "map the fields u want do be displayed as a table" ? Is it just drag and drop to the first subform, or to the second one ?

Hi ,

Setting all the properties what I mention over there and leter u can drag and drop your elements in second subform.

Then it should work.

Please close this thread.

Thank you very much. Problem is solved. I'm getting an error when rewarding points (probably because of these changes in the look of SDN made today... i don't know). I'll reward you with points as soon as possible
