Not populating values in the dropdown list

Feb 17, 2013 12:21 AM

Hi ,


I have a question regarding the populating the values in the dropdown list.


Here are the steps that I followed :


Step 1: Created a form with a drop down list in the designer ( Testers) which I imported the .xsd file by doing the new data connection.

Step 2: In the Data View or binding tab, I binded with the Tester Name.

Step 3: I created the tester.xml and attached in the Form Properties -> Preview. The values are showing in the dropdown list in the preview PDF , but not in the workspace.

Step 4: Went to LiveCycle Workbench and created a process (NewProcess) and clicked the user profile -> populate data process

Step 5: The process created another process ( PreparedProcess) and added new Abstract Activity.

Step 6: Defined activity as Query the multiple Rows as XML

Step 7: Added the sql in the sql statement section ( i.e select * from TestUsers) and tested the results that are coming fine.

Step 8 : Clicked the XML Information button and entered the root element ( Testers) and Repeating element as Tester , parsed the query , changed it to small caps which is similar to xml file that I used in the forms designer. I tested it and generated proper xml.

Step 9 : Assigned the output to the XmlPreparedData variable.

Step 10: I went to the "NewProcess" and added new variable TesterResult as xml and added the .xsd template that I used earlier to create the form.

Step 11: I added the SetValue and assigned the xpath map like this

Location : /processData/formdata/xdp/datasets/data/searchData/Testers

Expression  : /processData/Testers/searchData/Testers    .


Step 12: I deployed the application and went to the LiveCycle Workspace and started the process and loaded the form , but not seeing values the dropdown list.


I dont' know which step I missed ..what I am guessing so far, I am doing something wrong in the xpath mapping section.


Please help me ...


thanks in advance.
