javascript doesn't work with Adobe Reader 9


Not applicable
I have a submit button. Its function is to close the form. The click event has this code:

var myDoc =;


Using Adobe Reader 8, it works fine. If we use Adobe Reader 9, the form doesn't close.

I'm using Adobe LiceCycle Designer 8.05.2073.

Are you running inside of a browser or standalone? Can you hit Ctrl-J and see if there are any messages on the java console?

Our forms are inside a browser. I get this from the java console:

NotSupportedError: Not supported in this Acrobat configuration.

You cannot close the doc inside of a browser as all that is left is an empty shell (unlike the Acrobat application where you still have an application to do something with).
