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.
