Using Button to Reveal Hidden Subform


Level 4

I want my form users to click on a button to reveal a hidden subform, however, the if/else script that normally use on other forms to reveal hidden objects and subforms is not working here.  Do buttons not support that kind of script? I just don't see what the problem could be otherwise.

I'd be more than happy to send the form to anyone who wants to take a look at it.

Thanks in advance,

Make sure that you have saved your file as "Dynamic PDF".

If still not working, send me your form for a review at

Thanks for your reply!

The form is dynamic. I had this question posted on the LiveCycle ES and ES2 forum also and that one generated some interesting possible solutions.  In the end, though, I just changed the buttons to checkboxes so I could get on with things. Got a deadline to meet...

Thanks again!
