    Using buttons to add and/or remove fields

      Hello all!

       

      I really need some help here. I'm making a form in LiveCycle ES Design 8.2. I can't seem to get my buttons to work like I want them to. I need to be able to hit the plus sign and have the form add another field for more issues and concerns. The minus sign already works to remove a field. I just can't seem to get it to add the next field/bullet point. As well. I can't seem to get the field to grow as the text increases. In that regard, I was hoping for some sort of wrap text feature. Currently, the text just keeps on going.... or if I hit enter towards the end of the field, it creates a scroll bar on the right rather than just expanding the field to accommodate for the text. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

          Please can you show me your code for the + button, how do you add an instance? And also can you provide a picture of your hierarchy.

           

          To get a field expandable you must set 3 different properties to make it work fine:

          1. Object Palette -> 'Check' Allow Multiple Lines

          2. Object Palette -> Field Format -> 'Choose' Rich Text

          3. Layout Palette -> Size & Position - > Height -> 'Check' Expand to fit
