Change the caption of a TextField with JavaScript


Not applicable

I'm working on an multi language form with the Livecycle Designer 8.2.

My form includes a couple of Text fields with captions in English. I've implemented a button to change the language of the captions into French through a "click" JavaScript Event.

But I'm still not able to perform the caption language change with my code:

Myform.multilang.bt_english::click - (JavaScript, client)


xfa.resolveNode("tf_site.caption.value.#text").value = "French Caption";


Has there anybody an hint for me?

Is you form a dynamic or static PDF? Ensure that it is dynamic.

A bit late, but might help someone.

In Javascript use

myObject.caption.value.text.value = "New Caption Name";
