Hi all,

I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this, so I apologize in advance for any inconvenience to the mods...

I have PDF file that has form fields in it which are being populated by activePDF's Toolkit product (which is, so far, very good, I might add). My question is, I have address information stored in the DB as:


If I put a field on the form for each, and there turns out to be no street_2 or 3 info, I get the resultant blank lines. Is there a way to either remove the fields programatically? I have also tried setting the address info to one multi-line field, but I get a single line with scroll bars. Is there a way to have it auto-adjust its height based on the data it contains?

Thanks a million for any help!
