Populate drop-downs from table??

Avatar

Level 2

I read the discussion on this function and created a sample form to test the code before implementing it in my main form but I can't get it to work.

This is what I put in the "preOpen" of the Drop Down list:

form1.DropTest.DropDownList3::preOpen - (JavaScript, client)

// First clear the items from the list 

this.rawValue = null;  

this.clearItems();  

     

// Build new items 

var nRows = xfa.resolveNodes("form1.DropTest.Table1.Row1[*].Name"); 

     

for (var i=0; i<nRows.length; i++) { 

     this.additem(nRows.item(i).rawValue);  

    }

This is the hierachy of the form

I am using a table with a repeating row (Row1).This is what the form look like expecting the names to show in the drop down list but it doesnt

Hi there,

the preOpen event is triggered on the preOpen of the PDF file and not preOpen of the dropDownList.


I think what you want to use in this case would be the enter event of the dropdownlist

Hope this help!

It works now. There was a typo error in my code which I would attribute to a glitch with  LC. I am now using the code in a button to update as I wish.
