Hi everybody,

I have a LiveCycle Designer question…

Is it possible to have a button onclick event to change the Pagination “Place” property of a subform?  I would like to change the Master Page that a subform is placed on using a script on an onclick event. I’m not sure if this is possible… wondering if you knew a way…

Thanks a lot.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks a lot for your help!

I think I fixed the issue…


The form has the script set to the click event of buttons:
Page3["#breakBefore"].targetType = "pageArea"; 
Page3["#breakBefore"].target = "MasterPage4";   
xfa.layout.relayout();


Thanks

Hi Jing,

I don't think it is easy, here is a sample that allows you to choose the page size and orientation (which are different master pages), Adobe LiveCycle Designer Cookbooks by BR001: Season Planner (or Year Planner) PDF Template

It effectively defines the form against each master page and recalculates the widths and heights when the page selected is made, but I don't know of another way.
