can dynamically populate a caption with values from a data source.
For example, you can populate a caption with a product name in
French. The schema you connect to could have the following defined
for a caption:
The data file you point to could have the following defined for
<caption product="Desk Lamp"></caption>
When you merge the data file with the form design, the caption Desk Lamp is displayed
Another example could be to provide the product name in another
language. The data file you point to could have the following defined
<caption product="Lampe de Bureau"></caption>
When you merge the data file with the form design, the caption Lampe de Bureau is
displayed for product.
Note: To use non-ASCII text (such as accents) in your
data file, ensure the file is suitably encoded and the encoding
is correctly identified in the XML processing instruction. For example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Before you perform this task, you must ensure the following settings
are in effect:
In the Object Library palette, click the Standard category
and drag an object onto the form design.
For example, insert
a Text Field object.
(Optional) In the Object palette, click the Field tab and
type a caption for the object in the Caption box.
Click the Caption active label.
Select the data connection.
Note: If you
are not already connected to a data source, Default Data Binding
is the only selection in the Data Connection list.
Click the triangle beside the Binding box and select a binding.
example, caption > @product.
Note: When you bind a caption to a data source, the
caption is always shown in the form, even if you have set Caption
Position in the Layout tab to None.
View the form in the Preview PDF tab.
