Hi,

I am trying to use the Overflow leader as described in following guide:

LiveCycle ES2 * Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES2

My problem is that the header to be repeated is dynamic. I mean, my scenario should be something like this:

Page1:

          Header1

Content1

Page2:

          Header2

Content2 (overflow)

Page3:

          Header2

Content2 (cont)

I am not able to populate the Headers. I tried with referenced object, using javascript, but it fails.

Any help with this issue?

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,

Agustín.

Agustin,

I have had success using a 'regular' subform as the Overflow Leader.

In the initialize event, I set the subform as hidden.

This subform is defined at the same level in the hierarchy as the flowing main subform.

In the Layout:Ready event, I test the xfa.layout.page(this) property, and if > 1 - set presence as visible.

Reference the subform as the Overflow Leader in the Pagination Properties of your flowing subform.

I use global bindings on the fields within the overflow leader so that the data is in sync with the XML payload being merged with the template.

Initialize:

this.presence = "hidden";

Layout:Ready:

if ( xfa.layout.page(this) > 1 )

    this.presence = "visible";

else

    this.presence = "hidden";

Hope this helps

Mark

Any help with this issue?

Is there any way to get the same dinamyc header when content overflows?

Thanks in advance,

Agustín.
