I need to create a table in LiveCycle which has a hierachical structure, so we have multiple Category items each containing a number of Groups each containing a number of Items.
I have tried a few different approaches, each of which with it's own pitfalls:
If anyone can think of a solution to any of the above approaches or a new approach I haven't thought of I'd be very grateful.
Option 1 should work. If you select the table row in the hierarchy (lets say Row1). Then in the Object > Row palette you should be able to tick "Allow page breaks within content".
I have done this type of solution before.
The normal approach would to not include subforms within the cells and this may be part of the problem. The only time I have included a subform inside the cell is if I am trying to include a series of radio buttons or another repeating instance within the cell.
Check that all of the subforms are set to allow breaks in content. Also check that the table itself allows breaks.
I tried the subform approach as a way to get a repeating instance within a cell.
The table itself is set to allow breaks in content. Unfortunately for the subforms themselves the option is greyed out - as with all of the other cells.
I wish I can one day get out of Livecycle.This environment with all these unexplained problems is one of the poorests in resources.I'm having the exact kind of problem and no one to tell it to.Sometimes some of the problems I experience feel like magie to me,they don't make any sense at all.Please do not advise anybody to learn this crap!
Sorry about my frustration.
Well, the point is, you need to spend time learning it...as with any tool.
The book Creating Dynamic Forms with Adobe LiveCycle Designer by J.P. Terry is an excellent resource to start with. It's what got me going.
Also working through the tutorials that come with Designer helps. There are some good tutorials out on the net as well.
