Save textfield information added to section of form that can be hidden

Avatar

Level 9

I have a table wrapped in a subform that can be hidden by unchecking a check box. Each of the table cells have a textfield added with no caption and have the Rich Text option turned on. I want the end user to be able to add text into these table textfields, hide the table, and save the form without losing the text they added to the table textfields. Currently hiding the table clears everything that was added. This is the script that the actions I added created.

Hi,

I would delete that Result and create a new Result in the Action Builder. At the bottom of the list is an option to Show/Hide objects:

That would be better/safer than editting the auto-generated script.

Hope that helps,

hi Don,

The action your originally selected was for add/remove instance. This was deleting the original row, not hiding it.

Good luck,

Niall
