when a field "hides" will othe elements shift up? same scenario as the original post with a slight twist. checkbox would show/hide a subform below it. when that subform is hidden, would any subforms below it move up to occupy the "blank" space?
to hide the fields. Changing the fields' presence to "invisible" just makes them read only, but does not hide them. Changing the fields' presence to "hidden" does nothing. To make them 'visible' again [even though they are always visible 😞 ], I use:
TextField1.presence = "visible";
I also have a label (a Text object) that I wish to hide and redisplay using the same technics. That was flagged as an error in forms designer, so I put a field and the label in a subform and tried to manipulate the presence of them by changing the subform's presence state. (ie: subformgroup.presence = "invisible";) This is a small step in the wrong direction, because the text field within the subform is no longer read only. The fields behave as desired in the form designer, but when uploaded to LiveCycle, their behavior is as described.
Thank you for your quick response! Having re-read my previous posting, I realized I did not mention that I am using LiveCycle 7.x (LiveCycle 7.2 with Forms Designer 7.0 and Workflow Designer 7.0). The Target version information is not located in the File/Form Properties in LC Form Designer 7.0. I cannot find where that is specified in the 7.0 version. Where would I find the Target version in 7.0?
Can you post your email address and I will get you to send me your form. It has been a while since I used 7.x so I will have to refresh my memory. I did have this working in 7.x so I know it can be done.
I will be away until next week so don't expect a reply until then.
