In the Notes Client I have a single multi-value text field where one user might enter 3 values and another user might enter 10 values or more, ...I am requiring that each separate value be on its own line in the field. I need the field values to be numbered (see below). NOTE: I have wrapped both sets of samples below in quotes only to help distinguish the separate values in this forum
Here are three sample values the user has typed in this field:
"26456-I visited the house on Thursday"
"No response on 12/31/08"
...and here is how I want it to display:
"1. 19845-for USLH"
"2. 26456-I visited the house on Thursday"
"3. No response on 12/31/08"
For the sake of not creating XX number of fields and a myriad of hide/when's, can this be done in a single multi-value field that numbers each new value (defined by a new-line)? When I go to the field properties I see a numbered list option, but unfortunately this doesn't apply to the field values, it only applies to the paragraph in which the field is inserted. In other forms I have successfully displayed each value in its own numbered line when the form is in read mode, but the properties on this form is set to "Automatically Enable Edit Mode", so I need a solution to display numbered list while the form is being edited.
I have more fields which would require different multi-value list indicators that I could apply this to if we can figure out how to do this.
