Duplicate subform


Former Community Member
I'm able to easily create a button that produces a new copy of a subform in a dynamic form by using:


Now I would like to not only make a copy of the subform, but duplicate the data the user has entered into it.

I've tried _mysubform.clone(1); but that' doesn't work. I am guessing I need to copy the data, add a new instance and then load the copy data into the new subform. Anyone have suggestions on how to do this?

Hey Carl,

I know this is an old post but can you give me more info on how to use the mysubform.addInstance(1); to duplicate the subform?
