I have been trying out adobe live cycle designer and iText from couple of days. I have lot of text fields between static text, the values of which can vary in size. How do i make it to auto expand/shrink based on run time value passed from iText?
The 7_Flowed_Questions form is fairly rough and was intended to work through a forum post a few years back. The official sample is tried and tested.
Where you want objects to flow in both directions you can put the objects in a western text flowed subform first and then wrap this in a vertical flowed subform.
I am uploading a sample.
I started by setting by inserting a subform and kept this positioned. I put in some static text.
I then inserted another subform (coloured grey). I left this positioned for the time being. I find it easier to get the elements into the subforms first and then set the flowing options.
Lastly I inserted the last subform (yellow) inside the grey subform. I then inserted four textfields into the yellow subform. You should be able to follow this in the hierarchy.
I set up the textfield as you have done (mulitple lines; expand to fit...)
When everything was set up:
hmmm, clear as mud!!!
I hope this helps,
