Copying and Pasting a Row from the Form Onto Another Row

Avatar

Level 1

I have pdf form created using livecycle. I'm trying to find a way to programmatically allow a user to copy and paste entire rows onto other rows. Right now, it just allows then to copy single elements/fields.

Is it possible for a user to copy an entire row and paste it onto another row (so that all the data from the copied row displays on the "pasted row")?

Other information: Rows contain text fields and drop downs.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I have not seen this subject being discussed.

Designer can create fragments which can be reused in other forms.

Check this tutorial.

Hi radzmar,

My issue can't be resolved through fragments because it is a runtime issue.

i.e. I need a copy and paste function similar to the one in an excel document.

e.g. a persion can copy row #1 from a table and paste it into row #2.

Thanks anyways though!

Hi,

at runtime you can duplicate the data records with a small script.

I made a sample with a simple table.

In each row there is a button that will save the data of the entire row as XML and it to the data DOM.

Then it will create a new row at the end of the table which contains the same data.
