Displaying or Printing text with variable length


Recommended Posts

I have a text field that has data as short as a few characters and can be as long as a few hundred words. How do I display such text field on screen or print it out so that the field can adjust itself accordingly ?

You'll need two layouts. One for general viewing and data entry, the other for printing or previewing. In the printing layout, make your field as long as the longest possible text content it might contain, then add an inch. Select the field in layout mode, go to the format menu, then pick Sliding/Printing; the "Sliding up based on" option.

This will work for a printing layout or in preview mode.

For viewing in browse mode, you'll have to set the field to a shorter length and include a vertical scroll bar.
