I'm going to vent a little here but perhaps it will rid this forum of some lazy behaviour.
If you are about to post a question, please
1) Look in the Designer HELP to see if the answer is there
2) Do a search of this forum (use "forum search" link at the top of the page) to see if your question has already been asked.
It seems some of you get frustrated when your question isn't answered. Chances are it's because either your question is difficult to understand or it's already been answered in another post (and nobody really wants to do your work for you to direct you to the answer).
I'll be the first to support anyone who says the LC Designer documentation is lacking, but this forum combined with the resources posted in Mike's e-mail above are terrific resources and have helped me out on several occasions.
I should also add that I cross my fingers that the folks at Adobe who monitor this forum take note of the sort of questions that are being asked so that they can make the appropriate clarity or content adjustment to their documentation set.
Well, guess what SGreen, I'm building a form right now, that would
create a diagram out of some value fields.
I've opened 6 - 7 documents for help just for being able to draw
(dinamically) a single straight line:
AcroJS.pdf (Acrobat Java Scripting Reference)
There's no single straight answer to questions that bother every developer - like (just an example):
"Is Designer supporting Annot methods - like addAnnot?"
They say it does (for static) but their program says/does the opposite.
Why to make a revolution from a thing that was already working?
Probably the guys who concocted XML wanted to create the next thing which will save the world, right now instead it's a calamity that's affecting any thinkable domain of science/industry.
I have tried using Adobe LiveCycle Designer. I keep getting the following Error Message: "xml parsing error: unknown coding (error code 18) Line 1, Column 31 of file"
I have searched your support data base and could not find the Error message.
I like your Program and want to Purchase it, BUT, I have tried for 2 weeks or better to correct My Files, BUT, I continue to get the same error message.
I hope that you can help me. I only have 25 days to make my final decision as to whether to purchase the Program.
I want to use the Program for my Students who enroll in my On-Lin Bible Institute, which open on January 2, 2007
Is there a more advanced guide for scripting in Livecycle??
But i was thinking if there is a basic scripting guide maybe there is an advanced scripting guide too.
Anyone of you now that??
Personally, as someone new to 'scripting' I couldn't find an answer in plain English to my problem. I'm learning php/mysql and find that easier to find specific answers and examples than 'Designer'. And certainly found tons of help on forums.
I did a search here and in 'help' and on the internet (for ages) for an answer that would make sense to me before posting here. Although I'm quite sure the problem I had is ultra-basic to someone who 'knows'.
That's very surprising you found the google group useful. I see a lot of posts and no responses.
I wish I could find a good resource to find answers. It seems common on this forum to read about how someone just spent 10 hours trying to figure out a problem. I'm sure that's not that uncommon, I know I have done the same when it comes to this software because there seems to be insufficient resources to get help.
