Ahhh - the root subform - and flowable - / versus positioned behavior - I changed it so that it was flowed and also to allowed breaks to occur and it shows the data as expected now. Thanks Paul ....

I keep having this very strange pagination probelm . now ....Only the first page shows any data on initial pdf load ... - and the rest of the pages appear blank. Then when the data file is loaded ...it does not advance forward but for each iteration of the section .. it simply overwrites itslef ... and looks a mess. I try and go to the pagination tab - and everything is greyed out - ... very odd

I am trying to set up a flowable PDF using a schema - I am able to get the fields to display but only for one instance of the data. I am having a real problem getting multiple instances of the subform to show - up.The Schema is fine - i am the one who simply can't quite seem to get how to do it . If I have a data connection to a schema - how do i get the subforms to repeat when there are multiple instances of the XML element in the associated data file ???

I must really be missing what is going on here . I can't even get it to change color when I set the validate event check for the value of 1....The field is a numeric field and I enter one - and the validate event has the simple if statement and ... no color change ....Is there a cahnce that something is overriding the script logic altogether - is there a security setting or a preference condition that might explain this ????

Typo in the previous post - should read as : if(this.rawValue == "1") {this.border.fillColor.value = "255,0,0"};I have this in the *initialize event ... and in the*change event and there is no color change in the field - as if nothing was happening.

perhaps - I 'm missing something ..I have the following.<\script> if(this.rawValue =="1"){ this.fillColor.value == "255,0,0";}) <\/script>When the field is set to 1 by the user or by any other means - won't the directive ensure that the script is executed ????

This is the way it shows up in (this.rawValue =="1"{ this.border.fill.color.value == "255,0,0";})<br />It doesn't do anything as originally displayed or as displayed here.

I am using Live Cycle Designer 8 - I have created a flowable XFA form that pre-populates by reading an XML data file. XML Data is loading and fields are visible- Now I would like to format some of the display data ........It turns out that if I modify display pattern for a text field - the validation method is also automatically invoked - and - well - I don't want to enforce any sort of validation - just format the display of the data....but whenever I use a display pattern - it automatically fa...

Ok - I have gotten past this problem ....I can load the data.. !! (YAY) it had something to do with the fact that I had saved the original form as a static pdf form and it the data is put together assuming that it is a flowable dynamic form ....so now that i have saved it as a flowable form - it loads ok - but - do you have any tips on how to control paging when you have additional subforms, etc. or is this just OJT stuff that everyone goes through ? ...

If you know the name of the file - you can add a load button ...and in its "click" method ... insert the line ...xfa.host.importData("c:/PDFFILENAME.pdf");this will allow the XML content to be loaded by the form ...but each of the XML fields that you want ot load into the form must be bound to form so that the laod can function properly.

I noticed that the default scripting language was set to formcalc - and by chabging this to javascript - I no longer get this error - I have moved on to my next error - which is: the data doesn't at all load as expected - This particular form is only slightly more complicated d than my last loadable form but, truly , the only difference between them, really, is using I am using a schema for this particular form and my previous form didn't and that one works fine and functions perfectly - (this o...

I have been able to create a fillable XFA form using XML data and employing the xfa.host.importData(""); script. This has worked well.I now find that I must do a similar thing - only using a schema to bind the data to the PDF form fields ... Can you help me to find out what the differences are between these two approaches and alos can you help me to find some good documentation on how to perform this ? thanks

I have some expereince with xfa forms - using xml data as a dataconnection . I load data using the xfa.host.importData(""); script and all is well . I now need to use a schema as a dataconnection - do I still need to load the data using the xfa.host script - or is there another way to achieve the databinding ???I tried it using the xfa.host script - and got this error : script failed (language is formatcalc;context is xfa[0].form[0]Provider[0].#subforma[0]Button1[0])script = xfa.host.importData(...
