Updated Form Debugger

Last year I posted a sample form that was useful for debugging the internals of dynamic forms: Debug merge and layout.  In the mean time, I’ve discovered a couple bugs.  Time for a maintenance release.  The main changes are:

  • Does a better job finding the coordinates of objects — anything inside a subformSet, fields inside exclusion groups.
  • Reports the breakBefore and breakAfter properties correctly
  • General code cleanup and a bit of optimization

As I’ve mentioned before — this tool is useful not only as a way to debug your merge/layout, but also a good way to visualize what’s going on inside the the XFA processor.

Here’s the updated debugger form.
