Deleting table row deletes data in header

I have an expandable table in my form with add row and delete row buttons. If a row is deleted from the table using the button, it also deletes the text entered on the Document Number field on the header. What could be causing this?

Thanks.

Hi Cristina,

The easiest thing might be to set the binding on the Document Number field.  By default fields on the master page have the binding set to none.  If you could set the binding on this field the value will be retained.

Hi Cristina,

I do not have access to your file because of my firewalls, so I can't help you directly in your code. I should also mentioned that I'm not a pro, but I do have a code that works to add or remove one row by clicking in one button AND only that new row, nothing else.

Maybe you will find it useful comparing my code and yours.

To ADD a row:

  1. Select the Bottom or Radio Button that will trigger the copy of this object to be multiplied.
  2. Inside the Scripts: Click event, you will place the code:

                 var newInst = _NAMEOFYOUROBJECT.addInstance(1);    

to DELETE the newly created row:

     3. Select the bottom, then Inside the Scripts: Click event   place:

          If ( _NAMEOFYOUROBJECT.count == 0 )

          {

                 xfa.hostmessage (“Nothing to delete.”, “”, 1);

          }

          else {

                _NAMEOFYOURBOJECT.removeInstance(1);

          }

//////// _NAMEOFYOUROBJECT  (yes, with the " _ " ) in your case will be the name of your row that you are multiplying in your table.

Hi,

This sounds rather strange, should be a simple enough thing.  Maybe there's something strange with the binding of the Document Number field.

Maybe if we can see the form.  Can you upload it somewhere, like Google Docs, DropBox, etc and post a link here.
