Topic: Re: Applying on certain form fields via template

if I understand your question right, you want to selectively put fields on
the pages of your document. You can do this with the Template function and
then use the spawnPageFromTemplate() method to get the fields on the
desired pages. In order to have full control over all the fields, you would
create an individual template for every field.

However, if your field location varies from page to page, or you want to
have the form useable with Reader, this method does not work. In these
case, you would better place the fields on every page, and use the display
property for accessin the field.

Hope, thisc an help.
