Hi,I need to preselect an item in a drop down list, but I cannot see how to achieve this using the current or existing methods. I know that if I set the rawValue then it works, but later when I try to retrieve the data from the selected dropdown list item, I get an "Empty" which doesn't help. What it needs is the value,label pair to work correctly. When I manually select an item from the drop down list it works perfectly. But not when I try programtically set it.

It presently takes over 20 seconds to load the form, during which time either nothing or a blank form is displayed. I have been tasked with improving the loading time and I have discovered that the WSDL part of the start up is very quick.I have found the culprit: xfa.host.remerge(); It takes over 12 seconds to completely remerge the data with the form....

Hi,I have a dynamic form that I have built using Designer as part of LC ES3. It has a lot of complex dynamic forms and complex exclusion groups, which get triggered when the form is starting up. This causes the form to take some time to load. In order to disable the exclusion group calculation field from being triggered during start up (as it isn't needed at that time as form validation is done when the user clicks a button) I have created a form variable called formStartingUp and on the root no...
