how do I use a wild card with a repeating row?

Nathan_Ford

Hello, I have a form with a table that contains a repeating row.

The table is populated from an xml import.

I would like to hide one of the columns based on a dropdown, but the [*] Wildcard does not work

Please help me with the var i " + i + " code to acheive this

if ($.boundItem(xfa.event.newText) == "stephenw@babybunting.com.au") {

  this.resolveNode("Body.Table.HeaderRow.QLD").presence = "hidden";

  this.resolveNode("Body.Table.Row[*].QLD").presence = "hidden";

  this.resolveNode("Body.Table.FooterRow.TotalQLD").presence = "hidden";

  Subform1.Body.Table.columnWidths="15mm 30mm 55mm 15mm 15mm 15mm 15mm 15mm 15mm";

}

Thanks

Nathan

Hi there,

you could use FormCalc instead to use the [*], I think this could work...

if not, here is the loop you need

Hope this will help

You can also use the asterisk wildcard in JavaScript when you the resolveNodes method.


var oRows = xfa.resolveNodes("Body.Table.Row[*]");


for (var i = 0; i < oRows.length; i += 1) {


    oRows.item(i).QLD.presence = "hidden";


}

resolveNode vs. resolveNodes

Thankyou both for the reply, that's exactly what I was looking for.

How do I put the for statement inside the if statement

trying this

var oRows = xfa.resolveNodes("Body.Table.Row[*]"); 

if ($.boundItem(xfa.event.newText) == "stephenw@babybunting.com.au") {

for (var i = 0; i < oRows.length; i += 1) { 

    oRows.item(i).QLD.presence = "hidden";

}
