I have a dynamic form that needs to vary the layout of a subform based on the number of data items in an xml file.



I have a subform set to automatically repeat for each item in the data file. It works fine for just outputing the dataitems but it always just grows vertically.



I need to have it grow vertically when there are between 1 and 17 data items, if there are more than 17 i need to have the repeating output shift to a new column and continue upto 17 more items. In ascii it would look something like this:



Headerleft HeaderRight

---------- -----------

data1 data18

data2 data19

... ...

data17



Any ideas as to how this should be scripted/setup?

HI Eric,

I think you can try this method:

In the master page ,set the contentArea more smaller .Then When the dynamical data form loop ,it will show in the second column area when the first column area has no enough area.
