Hi,

Thank you for answering. I downloaded the file you have sent: it works correctly. However, i created a new form and followed the same steps and the same names of botton and textfield. It didnt works. Another thing, the file you have sent run only in acrobat, is there is an idea that may work on Foxit reader.

I really appreciate your cooperation.

What is the hierarchy in the LC Designer. It should be exact.

Unfortunately, the script doesn't work with Foxit Reader.

I checked your form and the root node in heirarchy is "form1" and if i changed it to "Form1" with capital "F", then it works.
