In my case, the user is not writting anything in these textfields. All the datas comes from a database and everything is filled at the initialization. In this case, there is fields that are hidden at the opening of the pdf.This is why i'd like to know if masterpage can flow just as body pages.Max

Have you tried in the initialize event of your TableHeader.NameValueName :$.rawValue = MainHeader.NameValueName.rawValueWhen you are in your script, you can hold CTRL and click on the field (MainHeader.NameValueName), this way you will have the exact correct path.Otherwise, i am not sure if this could help your problem, but have you tried using masterpages?Hope this will help!Max

Thanks for all the help!But what if you do this code in the initialize event of Field2 of your masterpage?if ($.rawValue <> "Anything") then$.presence = "hidden".endif.This way, the layout should change at the generation, not using a button.Does it work in your test?By the way, in which event are you putting your code for your checkbox?Max

I have some fields on the masterpage(which is doing my header) that i hide when they are empty. And when i hide those fields, i want to other to move so there is no blank space. In my body page this works well, but in the masterpage it doesn't seem to do anything.I have also tried to create subform but this doesn't seem to do anything at all.Thanks!Max

Hello everyone,I am wondering if it is possible to use subform with flowed content in masterpages. If it is possible, how do you make them to work?Things i noticed :- To have a flowing page, normally you have to set the page content to flowing, but in masterpage you cannot set this property.- According to this flow document of the events, i tend to believe that masterpage layout appear after the layout process, which would maybe prevent the form from flowing?Any input that could help me?Thanks a...

The whole hierarchy must be set to allow page breaks within content. If the page's allow page breaks within content setting is unchecked, you won't be able to set it to objects in it.

Sorry i forgave those important details :- Page is set to positioned.- Table is in a subform set to flowed. I tried to put this flowed subform into a positioned subform but without success.- Legend is in an other flowed subform. I tried to put this flowed subform into a positioned subform but without success.I though that wrapping each flowed subform into a positionned one would limit up to where it flows but it does not seem to work like this.I am open to any suggestion, so if you want me to ad...

Hi gents,My question is pretty simple yet it gives me a lot of troubles. I have a page, containing a header and a footer in the master page. In the middle of this page, i have a table that overflows on the next pages because it is too big to fit on one page, and below this i have a subform containing a legend for the fields in the table. My problem is that y table always overflows on my legend. Here is a simplistic drawing to explain my problem :My problem here is that the red square(the table) ...

Well in my case i have both. I have sentences and short numbers. So i suppose my best solution would be to do the textfields inside the subform. But how can i make it to break page when it is too large?

Hi Sandro Fischer and meem23, here is exactly what you guys need to do to make it work properly :1 - The page needs to be "Flowed".2 - Put your table into a "Flowed" subform3 - Check the Allow page break within content for both.4 - Your table must allow page break within content too.5 - Group your 2 Header as a section.6 - In the section's options, select "Include Header Row in Initial page" and "Include Header Row in Subsequent Pages".7 - Go into the Binding tab of the section, and select "Repe...

You are using the wrong button. Use the simple "Button" instead of the "Submit Button". This might be your problem.I think that you can upload your pdf and if i open it in livecycle i should see your coding.Max
