Add instances in static pdf form


Level 1


I have to add in a STATIC pdf form several instances of a subform depending on how many times there is a tag in the xml.

I have no problem doing it in dynamic but when I change in static I have this error

"Error: Unable to add instance of 'Row1': recursive or cyclic situation detected."


Any suggestions?

You can't add/remove form objects in a static PDF. That's why it is called Static. Static PDF forms layout never changes at runtime, but they can be interactive for the user. Please refer to this link for more info.
