Button to copy all fields


Level 3


I would like to create a button on a form...when the user clicks this button, all of the field values are copied and pasted into a big text field on the form.

Doesn't have to be pretty, I just want all the data from many fields dumped into one field.

Many thanks,

If an xml format is fine with all field and values then on the button click can assign the xml to a field(field name is: completeData).

var formDataStr = xfa.datasets.data.saveXML("pretty");

  completeData.rawValue = formDataStr;

If need ONLY fieldname and/or values can go by script function and get the values of each n every field on the form.

call "traverse" function on click of the button and pass "oParentNode" as the rootname of the form.

function traverse(oParentNode)


          var allChildElements;

          var intNumElements;

          var currentElement;

          var i;

          var j;

          // Get all occurances of the parent element

          intNumOccurances = oParentNode.all.length;

          for (i=0; i < intNumOccurances; i++)


                    oCurrentParent = oParentNode.all.item(i);

                     // Get all the child nodes of the parent element

                    allChildElements = oCurrentParent.nodes;

                    // Total number of elements in the object

                    intNumElements = allChildElements.length;

                    // Loop through all the child elements

                    for (j=0; j < intNumElements; j++)


                              currentElement = allChildElements.item(j);

                              // If the element is another subform we'll recursively call the function again

                              if (allChildElements.item(j).className == "subform")



                                        // If the objects are fields or exclusive groups then we'll encode them

                              } else {

                                        if (currentElement.className == "field" || currentElement.className == "exclGroup")


                                                  //Here have the access for both field and value

                                  //your code comes here

                                                  fields += currentElement.name + "\t";

                                                  values += currentElement.rawValue + "\t";





}          // end traverse function

Hope this will help.
