How do we copy 500 items from Excel and paste into Listbox at one time in LiveCycle Designer ES.

Even if it were possible to place 500 items in a listbox, why have a user wade thru 500 choices? Perhaps some sort of "drill-down" approach would be more user friendly?

Hi,

My requirement is - need to copy items from Excel document and paste into the listbox.That 500 number is just a number,it may be 10 or 20.If you know how to solve this problem using LiveCycle Designer ES, please share in this forum with an example if possible.

Thanks

Nope .....there were a couple of tricks where you could do it from script but there is no tool.

One option to do this is:

Add a formula into your excel sheet into an empty column.. and then copy all the rows to Initialize event of the ListBox. Change the A85 and B85 according to your data. A85 in the below formula represents Display text for List Item and B85 represents Value for that list item.

     =CONCATENATE("this.addItem('",A85,"','",B85,"');")

After you add the formula, you get a text similar to this.

     this.addItem('Ireland','IE');

Just copy all the 500 rows and then place in the Initialize event of your list box.

Hope this helps.. If you still have issues let me know..

Thanks
