Level 6



textfield.rawValue = xfa.event.newText;




textfield.rawValue = texfield.rawValue+"\n"+xfa.event.newText;


I think something like this may work.

Hi Legro

I don't know if I understand you correctly, but you can do something like this:

----------------- java script begin ---------------------------------

//Reset text field

TextField.rawValue = "";

//loop through items in listbox

for(i = 0; i < ListBox.length; i++)


          //if item selected



                    //check if Text field value if null

                    if (TextField.isNull)


                              TextField.rawValue = ListBox.getDisplayItem(i);




                              TextField.rawValue = TextField.rawValue + " " + ListBox.getDisplayItem(i);





----------------- java script end ---------------------------------

I have attached an sample PDF so that you can see how it works!!
