How do I add an "add new page" button?

Hello,

I have searched the forum about this, and the only answer I saw was where someone took a form and modified it for that person, but did not include the code they used or how to use it, where to insert it, etc.

I have the attached dynamic form I created, and all I want is a button on the bottom where a user can click, and then be presented with a new clean version of the form, as a second page, and every time they click, another blank page is added to the document.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I need to start using this form asap, and this is the only thing holding me up.

Thanks!

Hi,

Here is a sample. First of all name "page1" and have a look at the pagination options in Object / Pagination panel.

Button with script:

page1.instanceManager.addInstance(); 

should work.

Lastly, in the properties the form was set to print preview as opposed to interactive preview.

Good luck,

Niall

Hi,

You were nearly there. The script was okay, however the file was saved as a Static Form, whereas for this sort of dynamic behaviour you must save the form as a Dynamic XML Form in the save as dialog.

Also you need to specify that page1 can be repeated. Select the page in the hierarchy and in the Object > Binding palette tick Repeat  subform:

Here is your form back to you: https://acrobat.com/#d=xeO3y9S5QCw4YhWnel-L3w

I didn't have your font, so you may just want to make the changes in your version.

Hope that helps,

Niall

Hi again..

Is it possible to get a field och text to change color (or context) depending on another field?

For example, if a text is entered in one field another field would change to red with the text "YES" in....and if a different field has text entered it would change to green and "NO"

Hi Jonas,

Yes, this is possible. The script to change the colour of the textfield value is:

TextField1.font.fill.color.value = "R,G,B";

You can also change the colour of the caption:

TextField1.caption.font.fill.color.value = "R,G,B";

You would just need to wrap this in an if statement looking at the values of the other fields.

For example the following in the calculate event of the yes/no textfield:

if (textfield1.rawValue != null)

{

     this.font.fill.color.value = "120,255,120";

     this.rawValue = "Yes";

}

else if (textfield2.rawValue != null)

{

     this.font.fill.color.value = "255,120,120";

     this.rawValue = "No";

}

else

{

     this.font.fill.color.value = "0,0,0";

     this.rawValue = "";

}

Hope that helps,

Niall
