I have a PDF form built in Designer 8.1 that has a collection of required fields within it. Some of the fields are set as required via FormCalc while others are simply required as a configuration.



However, when I submit my form within Workspace, it is no longer being checked for required fields being empty and allows me to submit the form in any state. If I try to put some custom FormCalc within the Submit button of my form, then I can no longer use that button as "Submit" - which is necessary for the form to work properly within Workspace.



Any ideas?



Thanks

What you can do is put your script on the click event of a regular button. When you are satisfied with the state of the form, you can invoke the click event of the submit button programmatically.

Something like

if (no more validation) then

     mySubmitButton.event("click")

else

     Don't submit.

Jasmin,

For workspace, I add the process fields which includes the submit button.  That submit button is then rendered as a "Complete" button in workspace.  I assume that I can add my script to that submit button, correct?

Thanks!

Go Habs!

I'm assuming you talk about the visible 'Submit' button. This button is in fact a regular button that invokes a hidden submit button.

If it's the case, then yes you can add you script in there.
