    Hi Ranjan,

    I have seen customers use JavaScript to create tabs at the top of the form that let you jump to the corresponding (body) page of the form.

    As for moving a body page: Try the Designer documentation (F1 in Designer), it's actually quite good 😉

    Here's the relevant section:

    <b>How to reorder the sequence of body pages</b>

    If you need to change the order of the body pages in a form design, you can do so using the Hierarchy palette.

    <u>Tip</u>: If the Hierarchy palette is not visible, select Window > Hierarchy.

    To reorder the sequence of body pages:

    In the Hierarchy palette, select the subform that corresponds to the body page that you want to move.

    Drag the subform to a new position beneath the "form1" node.

    Repeat steps 1 and 2 until all of the body pages are in the order that you want.

    Cheers,

      Hi Juergen,

      Thanks a lot for the nice answer. This is really works.

      However my question is if only static text and static images are present in the page then, how can we get handle for them. And my requirement is to jump to the page and at the particular area of the page.

      I solved it logically. Still thinking for better alternatives.

      I put very very smalll text fields(which is almost invisible) in the particular areas of specified page.

      When the user clicks the link , i send fucus to those text fields.

      Here is code.

      xfa.host.setFocus("DataSource.#subform[1].txtbv");

      Although it's working , i am thinking of better alternatives.

      Please help.

      Regards,

      Ranjan
