Would it be possible for you to attach your form so we can see what is going on in terms of binding, settings and so on?
I noticed on value 99310 and value 99252 you have the same value specified (0.67). Therefore after you select 99252 from the list, it jumps back to 99310. They need to have unique values. Anyway, have a look at the form and tell me if its behaving the way you need it to. I just changed the binding on the lists from 'Normal' to 'None'.
Thanks Dallas. That worked. nice....
Ok, So here is another one, same form.
How can I submit the form as a PDF file, when I hit the submit button, rather than an xml file? But using the submit button, rather the email button - I know rather trivial but thought I would ask.
Thanks again - that's 2 for 2.
So I have one more interesting question. How can I bind data entered intot a form to MySQL database. I seem not able to build a connection.
So here are the steps I follow:
Binding / New Connection / Name: testdata ; Description: OLEDB database / Connection String: build: SQL Native Client / Data Source: location of the SQL database (.mwb) ; Log on to server: localhost
But when I test the connection I get an initialization error and login time out.
So my question is: How do you connect the PDF fields to a MySQL database ? and what am I doing wrong ? Is it a feasable process to bind also check boxes and other fields to a database ? How would you bind data dynamically - say if I choose a certain field from a dropdown menu, certain other fields will populate via the database ?
Thanks again for all help and insight.
Hey Shai. I'm afraid I have zero experience with connecting to DBs. I only work with XML schemas and XML. It might be a good idea to create a new post and just copy what you asked above in there. Perhaps somebody that has experience with DB connections will solve that problem for you.
Thank you Dallas for the help !
