How to reference table rows added using addInstance?


Level 2

OK, this one's probably quite simple, but I'm at wit's end . . . .

I have a table with body rows that can be added using addInstance.  what I can't figure out is how to reference the newly added rows and teh fields within them.  If the row reference for the inital row before addInstance is:

Table.Row1.CellName before the addInstance, after the addInstance wouldn't it be Table1.Row1[0].CellName and the newly added row be Table1.Row[1].CellName?  I try that and the debugger tells me that Table1.Row1[1].CellName has no properties.

I basically need to determine whether the user has filled out anything in the added rows and I'm having a devil of time figuring out how to reference the added rows and their cells.  Thanks in advance!

Your logic is correct but to reference that som expression you woudl have to use this notation:

xfa.resolveNode("Table1.Row[1].CellName").method or property

The reason for this is the use of the square brackets. Javascript interprets this an an array. When you use the resolveNode method you can pass a string and hence the square brackets get interpretted correctly.
