I have my form I need to share with one of you experts... it's a very simple one... to tell me why the form isn't work the way I want it to.  Please tell me how to share the form and I will do so.

The Add detail button does not add additional rows.  The code seems correct but does not work.  Sorry for the seemingly endless rambling, but I'm in a hurry for work .  Please help where you can,  I am very willing to provide my form to whomever is willing to help me out.

Thank you in advance

Mike

My button has the following code attached to it...

xfa.form.form1.mainSF.salesSF.Table1._Details.addInstance(1);

Header 1Header 2Header 3
Header1Header2Header3
Detail1Detail2Detail3
Total1Total2Total3

Hi Mike,

The first mistake you did was saved the form as static, so it was not expanding. Also your code was not correct as hierarchy.

See attached.

Arvind, thanks for the update and the corrections.  After seeing your corrections, I should have known better .  Regardless, I wasn't able to find it on my own with everything I have going on, so I owe you my deep thanks .

I look forward to working you again .

Arvind, thank you very much for the offer of help.  I have been messing around with the designer for quite a few years with good success… but not GREAT success.  I am trying to learn JavaScript programming so that I can implement THAT into my designs but I have only scratched the surface so far.  As you have seen from my email, I have what appears to be a very basic problem (one that I should be able to figure out by myself, but can’t).  If you are WILLING, I actually have 2 issues, the original one with the detail row not populating and another.

I am trying my hand at the JavaScript.  I’m practicing with using variables and writing code.  What I want to do is have a user input their specific data in the table and then ADD another instance.  Then I ask them to input their name in the userName textfield (I typed in a script variable for this field).  Then I want to return them a text box that displays (document.write) to them their total sales for the period ending this quarter, their projected sales for next quarter, and then finally a sentence that states that this report was generated on a specific date and time.

Please KNOW that this is for my learning enjoyment only and if you are unable to assist I will understand  

The link to the file is at http://adobe.ly/1SmpYHt or http://tinyurl.com/pbgn8qc

Can you help me understand how to do this?  Please remember I haven’t written code before and am looking forward to picking up this skill.

Thank you for your reply.  Those settings were correct already.  I believe my script is correct, but I cannot understand what else might be preventing the table from expanding.  Any other ideas or willingness to peek at my form to see if you see a problem?

Thanks.

Mike

Hi there,

make sure that your row Detail has the option to add additional instances

Select the row Detail, go in Object Palette > Binding

Check the option to Repeat Row for Each Data Item

This should do the trick

Hope this help!
