I am trying to convert the workings of an html form to a pdf form. In the html form, I have a scrolling text box (textarea) with a relatively small page footprint. Within that text box is a list of items/illnesses/maladies at which I want the person filling out the form to look. Within the next field, they will tell me if they have had any of this long list of maladies, conditions etc. I don't want to use checkboxes, because the maladies are rare, they can just type in what they have experienced, etc.
Now then... In my html form, I have text within the textarea, good enough... But I can't figure out what this object is called in LiveCycle, nor how to make the similar field.
I'm pretty green with LiveCycle. Can someone direct me to the name of the object, how I get the long list of text within it, if there is a sample of something like this? I'd sure appreciate the guidance. I've dug and looked and looked, and remain stumped.
Thanks in advance,
PS. The list that people must look at has close to 100 items. I can hardly imagine entering all of these one by one. Is there a way to call a text file to populate this "scrolling text box?" If so, is there a simple step by step for this?
