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

I am sending you a copy of the file if you want to look at it.
