Expandable TextField


Hi everybody,

Here is my problem :

I can see my text field (with multiple lines) expandable but only in the PDF preview tab of Adobe LiveCycle Designer. But when I'm deploying and running my application (from SAP NWDS) on the SAP J2EE engine server, the text field does not expand at all (I have instead the plus sign, like on static forms). I don't know what is the problem (maybe it's a configuration problem ?).

Iu2019m using LiveCycle Designer 7.1.4 and on my computer I have Adobe Reader 8.1.2. On the portal server, Adobe Reader 8.0 is set up.

I think that my form is saved as a dynamic form :

Through Adobe LiveCycle Designer, here is my settings :

1) For the XDP Preview format, I have "Acrobat 7.0.5 Dynamic PDF"

2) For Document Handling, I have "Acrobat 7.0.5 Dynamic PDF Form File"

3) When I do File>Save as, for MyInteractiveForm.xdp, the default type is : Adobe XML Form File

And through SAP NWDS (version 7.0.15), properties of the interactive form are :

displayType = ActiveX

mode = updateDataInPDF

I've already tried to save the generated PDF on my computer and then to open it but when I'm filling the text field in with some words, it does not expand. I can only see that in the preview tab of the LiveCycle Designer...

Have you any idea ?

I hope you can answer me.

Thanks !
