Hi Niall,I did have a look at it and I can't seem to get it right. Do you understand my requirement for having two unequally long columns and that I need them to be paginated to the next page?It should look like this if both columns will paginate: Currently this is done in Jetform, so I guess it must be possible somehow in Livecycle ES also, I just can't get it to do what I need. I hope you have some pointers on were to look SincerelyKim Christensen

Hi all,I have a quick question regarding columns in Livecycle Designer, I have an scenario where I have two columns that will get filled with data (rows of repeating elements from XML).The two columns are independent and they are NOT equally high. The left column is shorter than the right one.So the issue is that I need these two columns to flow to a new page. If the left column (which is shorter) is filled up first it should overflow to the next page and show an empty right column. Vice versa i...

Hi all,I have a scenario where I have one script object (MyTexts1) containing a lot of text for the form (each of the texts are stored in variables (fx. MyTexts1.infoText1). The variables are named after the fields (meaning that I have a field called "infoText1"). So for each field I call a function that takes the name of the field. This function (located in my script object called "functions") should somehow then find the value of the variable in "MyTexts.infoText1".Now my question is:How can I...

Hi again,Found the answer myself 🙂To do this, you must setup your Weblogic server to redirect stdout to the server log. This is done in the adminserver console under Server - Logging - Advanced - "Redirect stdout to server log".Hope this helps somebody out thereHave a good one all of you SincerelyKim ChristensenDafolo A/SDenmark

Hi again Nith,This was my initial thought as well, but the customer want the individual processes to log to individual files that rolls every day. Hence I am not sure I can use the AdobeLogger?The code you show here should be placed in a executeScript service right? And then it will log to the managed server log (I am on WebLogic 11g) i guess.Is my initial question/scenario impossible to achieve or is it just difficult?\Kim
