    Hi,

    Does anybody know how to create dynamic forms (variable form fields)  in SKILL for allegro?

    Thanks,

    Hi Saad,

    You can change form field visibility and use axlFormAutoResize to re-size your form.
    However, Allegro forms are not dynamic. One way to get around this problem is to build your forms on the fly and open and close them in order to re-size form fields.

    Cheers, Dave

    Hi Dave,

    The problem I see in 'on the fly' forms is its callback function because for every changing form field the callback function would change which is the main hurdle. Our SKILL scrips are revision controlled and cannot be modified on the fly.
    Multiple form files could be one solution only if all the possible situations (variable form fields) are known. But in my case conditions are unknown.

    I thank and appreciate for your suggestion.
    Regards Saad.
