Remotely add and remove Instances from different pages

Avatar

Level 2

Similar to my other post, I have a form that has multiple pages, one being a calculator (OA_CALC) that shows every variable for calculation; the second (OA_PG1), customer facing showing only pertinent information. So both tables should add/remove and show the data being contolled from OA_CALC. I am able to addInstance and source the date to both pages, but for some reason removeInstance only works on the page where the button exists. So rows on OA_PG1 never delete, please advise.

On OA_CALC i have an ADD ROW button with the following code:

form1.OA_CALC.Table1.HeaderRow.#subform[0].AddRow::click - (JavaScript, client)

OA_CALC.Table1.RowItems.instanceManager.addInstance(1);

OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems.instanceManager.addInstance(1);

and a DELETE ROW with the following code:

form1.OA_CALC.Table1.RowItems.#subform[0].DelRow::click - (JavaScript, client)

var vIndex = this.parent.parent.index;

OA_CALC.Table1.RowItems.instanceManager.removeInstance(vIndex);

OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems.instanceManager.removeInstance(vIndex);

One thing that I tried was creating buttons on OA_PG1 with the code specific to that table, that seemed to work. So I know the syntax works, but cannot figure out how to control it from a different page. Please help.

Thanks

Hi,

I have an example here that demonstrates this behaviour: http://assure.ly/eTOXaH.

Hope that helps,

urgh, apparently I am still very close. I have used your sample, but it seems that the execEvent("click") is not working correctly or my syntax is wrong somewhere. Where am I going wrong?

Button Code on first table:

form1.OA_CALC.Table1.RowItems.deleteBtn::click - (JavaScript, client)

var vCurrentRow = this.parent.index;

OA_CALC.Table1._RowItems.removeInstance(vCurrentRow);

xfa.resolveNode("OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems[" + vCurrentRow + "]").deleteBtn.execEvent("click");

Invisible Button Code on second table:

form1.OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems.deleteBtn::click - (JavaScript, client)

OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1._RowItems.removeInstance(this.parent.index);

Edit: Here is the Console report from the Acrobat JavaScript Debugger:

xfa.resolveNode("OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems[" + vCurrentRow + "]") is null

7:XFA:form1[0]:OA_CALC[0]:Table1[0]:RowItems[1]:deleteBtn[0]:clickException in line 7 of function top_level, script XFA:form1[0]:OA_CALC[0]:Table1[0]:RowItems[1]:deleteBtn[0]:click

TypeError: xfa.resolveNode("OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems[" + vCurrentRow + "]") is null

7:XFA:form1[0]:OA_CALC[0]:Table1[0]:RowItems[1]:deleteBtn[0]:click

Hi,

I'm gone now, but check the JavaScript Console for errors. Press Control+J when previewing the form in LC Designer or opened in Acrobat.

figured it out.

The code failed because I had put delete local row buttton BEFORE calling the delete remote row button. I believe this stopped the code from fully exectuing since it's instance was removed mid-code. This now matches Niall's provided example.

Bad Code:

form1.OA_CALC.Table1.RowItems.deleteBtn::click - (JavaScript, client)

var vCurrentRow = this.parent.index;

OA_CALC.Table1._RowItems.removeInstance(vCurrentRow);

xfa.resolveNode("OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems[" + vCurrentRow + "]").deleteBtn.execEvent("click");

Good Code:

form1.OA_CALC.Table1.RowItems.deleteBtn::click - (JavaScript, client)

var vCurrentRow = this.parent.index;

xfa.resolveNode("OA_PG1.ProjectSavingsGROUP.Table1.RowItems[" + vCurrentRow + "]").deleteBtn.execEvent("click");

OA_CALC.Table1._RowItems.removeInstance(vCurrentRow);

Woohoo!
