I am new to this, but I had to do this on a current form, a number of times. I will try to be clear.



Add a Button

Control type is regular



Show click*



Language: javascript

xfa.host.gotoURL

and in parentheses where your doc is:

for example("http://infoscope.ccc.edu/display/displayFile.asp?docid=2232/labs.pdf");

How do I create a web link??



I want to be able to take some text or an image and have it link to a website. Seems simple, but am unable to do this and searching online I haven't found any solutions. I have tried copy and paste from word, create in Acrobat Professional and then open with Designer. None seem to work. Please Help. Thanks.

The ONLY useful resource on LiveCycle/PDF forms I've yet managed to find is:




Stefan Cameron on Forms



But I'm finding it increasingly bizarre that Adobe don't openly publish this kind of information - why isn't there an MSDN-style resource that we can all use quickly and easily?



I don't want to sound ungrateful, but the Adobe user-to-user forums just aren't detailed enough to be really useful. When you're developing a solution you need answers right away, not hours, days or even months later. Plus, the same questions keep coming up again and again, with different people answering them at different times.



Seriously, the lack of available info is extremely frustrating.

Sorry, didn't see all the hidden messages from others also bemoaning the poor documentation.

Ah well, at least I'm not alone it seems. Come on Adobe, pull your finger out.



In the meantime, I've just discovered this today:




Acrobat User Community



Some of the stuff in here is pretty basic, but some of it looks quite promising.

To find more information about Scripting in LC D see:



Scripting languages and resources (LiveCycle Designer 8.x)

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=333249



Or the search results for "live cycle javascript":

http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/search/index.cfm?loc=en_us&term=livecycle+javascript



As for the previous poster, some users need some really basic information and although one may find it below their level, it does help some. Some other posters consider me an advanced user, but even I learn some new insight reading and rereading the basic documentation and examples.



I always try to add an item of value to this post and not my personal comments or feelings about LiveCycle Designer.

I am looking for a more indepth. coverage Of live cycle designer. I still dont understand realy how to make multiple page documents with flowing layouts. For example a phone bill etc.



Are there any tutorials for something like this or examples anyone can share? Nothing complicated. Just a standard pdf with header and flowing documents.

is there any way i can create a hyperlink to a field locally i.e in the same page/form/subform?



Creating an external hyperlink is well-explained and teached but there is nothing even in the HELP SECTION if one wants the form-filler to click on a TEXT and it would link him/her to an ImageField/Text or anything!



Please guide me, I am totally new with LiveCycle and need to complete these kind of tasks everyday.
