Expanding textfields within tables

Avatar

Level 2

Hi all, thank you for your help in advance! I am creating a form in LC Designer which holds several tables within which are textfields. Is there any way to get a row content to overflow to the next page if the row straddles more than one page, possibly even two or more?

Regards

Hi,

Yes, if you select the repeating row and go to the Object > Row palette and tick "Allow page breaks within content". Each container up to the page also needs to allow page breaks.

The textfields need to be set to expand in the Layout palette (tick box under the height value).

The page needs to be set to Flowed in the Object > Subform palette and the form needs to be saved as a Dynamic XML Form in the save as dialog.

Here is an example of building up dynamic tables. While these tables do not have expanding textfields, they do have screen shots showing the pagination settings.

Hope that helps,
