LiveCycle Designer dynamic table with user selectable number of rows

Can you help me find this tutorial?

I recently saw a tutorial on the web that explains how to make a table in LiveCycle Designer that allows the user to tell the form how many rows to include in the table. I'm pretty sure it used some javascript to set the Initial Count field based on the user input.

I finally found the answer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AxxcJ...

You have to set up a numeric field (numfieldname) for the user to enter the number of desired rows, and a button to click. Here's the javascript needed for the button click:

var v_rows = this.parent.numfieldname.rawValue;

FormName.PageName.TableName.RowName.instanceManager.setInstances(v_rows);



// Replace FormName, PageName, TableName, RowName, etc. with the names for your form


You also have to make sure that
1) the fields under "Repeat Row for Each Data Item" on the Binding tab for the repeating row have been activated.
2) On File > Form Properties, Default tab, you select Dynamic XML Form on the PDF Render Format dropdown list.
3) On File > Form Properties, Preview tab, you have selected Dynamic XML Form on the Preview Adobe XML Form As dropdown list.

Hi Elisabeth,

You dont say how recently you saw that video, but this site underwent a redesign a while ago and there were several great on-demand seminars on developing LiveCycle Designer PDF forms that are no longer here :( It is too bad because they covered great material. I don't see anything in the Learning Center here now that covers that topic.

Hope this helps,

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I saw the tutorial, and I'm pretty sure it was a video tutorial. I just wish I could find it now. There are lots of tutorials about using buttons to add or remove rows, but this was different, because he talked about how you can use the "Repeat Row for Each Data Item" fields on the Binding tab, and then he demonstrated adding some javascript code to a numeric form field to control the row count for the table.

By the way, today, if I use Internet Explorer, I can still open a couple of AUC Tech Talk meetings, but they won't open up in Firefox.
