I am using <cfdocument format="PDF">,
within my <cfdocumentsection> I call another .cfm file which contains
<cftextarea label="example" disabled="disabled" name="somename" wrap="virtual" message="Your qualifications are restricted to 500 characters" value="#getdata.stuff#" required="no" rows="3" cols="80" maxlength="500" validate="maxlength" validateAt="onBlur" />
If this textarea contains more then about 50 characters the text dosen't appeare on the pdf.
If the textarea contains just a few words it works fine.
Would you have any idea what this problem could be?
Why put a <cftextarea>, which is a <cfform> UI element, into a PDF? Just output it to be inside a <div> or <p> or other HTML container tag. Style the HTML to look like a form field if you need to.
Because all of the form pages that are used in this application are just displayed in this PDF as 1 option for the Administrator at the end of the process. Any other ideas that don’t require me re-writing pages and pages of code?
