Setting a minimum height for a dyanmic subform

Avatar

I am creating a form that is reading in a set of instructions from XML. I would like to limit the instructions to 2 per page. Is there a way I can set a minimum height for the subform, so it will at least be 1/2 the page?

Hi,

Sounds like you want to set the maximum height of the field.

Have a look at .maxH property in the help file. It would look something like this in the docReady event of each field:

this.maxH = "5.125in";

Good luck,

Setting a maximum doesn't sound right. Maybe I should restate what I want because now I can see how it was confusing.  I want there to be a maximum of 2 instructions per page. The page could have only 1 instruction if it goes beyond half the page. (In fact, an instruction can take up to as many pages it needs.) But let's say for instance I have 3 really short instructions. All of them are short enough to fit on one page, but I want to restrict instructions to half page so only 2 will show up. Does that make more sense?

Hi,

If that's the case, then you could size each field in the Design view so that each field takes up have a page. Then in the Layout tab select "expand to fit height" (should also have allowed multiple lines in the Object / Field tab).

Then when you import the XML, short instructions will appear two per page, while longer ones will flow onto following pages. If the fields are set to half a page then you should not get more than 2 on a page.

Hope that is of help,
