Hello,

Here is how you can do what you want.

Go to the Advanced properties of the "Submit button" that you create next to the Textfield. Scroll down and in Actionscript section set Type to Custom and Action to Click.
In the code area that appears below put the following code:
function ff_buttonname_action(element, action)
{
    ff_getElementByName('textareaname').value = ff_getElementByName('textareaname').value + ff_getElementByName('textfieldname').value + "\n" ; 
    ff_getElementByName('textfieldname').value = "";
} // ff_buttonname_action
NOTE: In the code below replace 'textfieldname', 'textareaname' and 'buttonname' with the corresponding names of elements in your form.

Let me know whether you have managed to set this for your form and whether it is working as you wanted.

Regards,

Mihaela
