Drop-down lists: how to avoid entering long item lists by hand


Not applicable
Hello all,

I am very new to LiveCycle Designer. I want to create a form containing several drop-down lists. Each of them have a relatively long (up to 30-40) list of pre-defined items that can be selected at filling time. Those lists, btw, can also change from time to time.

My question is: how can I avoid entering by hand those long list of items?

I have seen from the online help that LiveCycle Designer supports a "binding" mechanims that should allow me to load those item lists from an "example XML" file. I have done several tests, but never succeded. I just do not what XML fields should be used. For instance, I have named a drop-down lists as "List1", then tried to feed an XML file like the following:

This and other similar attemps just cause LiveCycle Designer to cough and show error messages.

Someone is willing to show me how to do the job?

TIA to all volunteers.
