Numeric Counter on the forms


i have to display a Counter on the Form which should be incremented based on the Number Of PERNRs of a Person ID.

Both PERNR and Person ID are present on the Forms. But was wondering how to display or calculate the counter.

Is there any scripting available or should i use some events on the form.

please suggest.

    do you mean you have to count the people on the form, but you donĀ“t know the count in the ABAP/ WD initial coding? so you dynamically add nw persons (remove too) on the form without the DB communication, right?

    you can always use the scripting: get the number of the row instances and next check if the field are filled/ changed/ etc.

    very similar post was send few days ago.

    ou may utilize this: (author Mr. Norbert Prager)

    var TestNodesLen = xfa.resolveNodes("xfa.record.YOURTABLE.DATA[*]").length; //for accessing via hierarchy

    xfa.resolveNode("xfa.record.TESTTYPE.DATA["+ i +"].YOURFIELD").rawValue;

    and I guess you will need some loop to work with all the rows.

    You´d better read through this "book":
