Re: Simple? Allow page breaks, but don't break a captioned text field to begin with. - Adobe LiveCycle 06-03-2015
Hi Mouselander - that is correct.In physical terms, each text field (with caption) starts off about say 6 lines deep max. So when the form is empty there can be as many as 5 of these up on an A4 page. The problem arises when say the first of these 5 fields starts to get populated beyond a few lines - it shunts all the other fields further down as you would expect leaving the fifth perched between two pages - a bit ugly. This would be fine - I could just uncheck the 'allow to break between pages'...

Re: Livecycle Designer - print pages from expanding sections - Adobe LiveCycle 06-03-2015
Okay, so after some research I can see that the reason why it's not working is because the functions are working asynchronously ... so irrespective of the order, they all work pretty much at the same time. Problem is, I'm not sure about how to go about splitting them into two sections (hide the info panels FOLLOWED BY printing the section). I think I may need a set time out or a callback function. Can anyone help?

Re: Livecycle Designer - print pages from expanding sections - Adobe LiveCycle 05-03-2015
Ahh, no, it doesn't quite work.Throughout a section I have info boxes - these are text boxes wrapped in a subform called info1a, info1b etc. which are set to be hidden pre print - and post print they are set to visible. This works in itself.However the code above still counts the page numbers within the section prior to the info boxes being hidden - in other words, the info boxes cause the pages to be printed to extend beyond the section as if the info boxes were still there, even though they ar...

Simple? Allow page breaks, but don't break a captioned text field to begin with. - Adobe LiveCycle 04-03-2015
Hi there,I think this is a simple one (hopefully).I have a flowed form (dynamic). In one section I have multiple text fields, one after another flowing from top to bottom. There are about 15 of these. The text files all have captions - some of them running into several lines. Each text filed is expandable - they start off as 4 lines deep approx, but could well be pages long depending on what the user enters.My question is, how do I set up each text field (or the subform wrapper) so that the page...

Re: going back to a page/section previously viewed - Adobe LiveCycle 04-03-2015
ahhh, okay, didn't think that was possible. Like I said, I'm relatively new to this and have been getting by with the good help of others and the in-built editor which is limited to say the least. Is this something you could give me a steer on?Thanks for all your help - greatly appreciated!

Re: going back to a page/section previously viewed - Adobe LiveCycle 04-03-2015
Thanks for the reply mouselander.I think I get where you're coming from. The issue I have is that I don't want a print button to appear within the body of the form (as it can, and does, expand dramatically when the user enters text into the fields). My initial solution was to put a print icon in the footer of each master page (each master page is a section of the form, and there are about 8 of these sections). In doing this I can reference a go back to section button in the 'printing section' bu...

Re: going back to a page/section previously viewed - Adobe LiveCycle 03-03-2015
I've changed my thinking on this (and so I have a new problem!). My worry was that in terms of usability I just didn't like the idea of a user jumping from one page to another in the form without being able to return - though do let me know if this is even possible!Instead I've decided to ask about a dialogue box which will give options. This is a new problem, so please read here:creating a print dialogue box with options

creating a print dialogue box with options - Adobe LiveCycle 03-03-2015
Hi there,I'm struggling with an issue of usability.I have a complex form which increases in size when the user enters more text - many pages where there are info boxes of text that are hidden when printing - this has a knock on effect that page numbers on screen don't match page numbers when printing.I got help from Radzmar (thank you!) who gave me the code for a print button that prints a section rather than a page number span; so when the user clicks the button:var vObj = xfa.resolveNode("form...

going back to a page/section previously viewed - Adobe LiveCycle 03-03-2015
Hi there,I have a large form spanning over many pages which is flowable - so it can grow in size depending on the data inputted. Because of this I have managed to create buttons which can print sections rather than page numbers, which works well. because of the size of the form, I have placed all these print buttons on one page at the end of the form - think of it as a table of contents with buttons instead of page numbers if that makes sense. I'll call this the 'printing section'The problem wit...
