I have a fairly large complex form that has several subforms that I want to have zero instances the first time it is opened. Most of those subforms that I set the initial instances = 0 on the Object pallet do exactly that--they behave! However, I have one subform in particular that no matter what I do, it always starts with an instance. I really don't want to work-around this, as I have done in the past when this happens. I want to solve it.
I have tried
I have encountered this sort of thing before and used the "presence" property as a work-around. I will be exporting the XML data out of this form and I don't want a bunch of empty elements to deal with.
Any suggestions (besides "have you considered being a gardener?") are most welcome. I hope someone knows of a solution--I have spent way too much time on this.
