Hey everyone, I just recently started working with LiveCycle Designer and wanted to implement an auto-complete drop-down to make the selection easier. I found this and thought I'd try it out: Adobe LiveCycle Designer Cookbooks by BR001: Updated: Drop-Down List Control with auto-complete (Sea...
If I use it as it is, without modifying or overwriting it, it works perfectly fine.
But if I change anything, or simply overwrite it by saving it (even if I didn't change anything) the form doesn't work properly anymore when I open the dynamic PDF form.
BUT, if I modify it/save it and go in the 'Preview PDF' tab of LiveCycle, the form works perfectly fine and I'm able to use the searchable drop-down list.
To summarize, it seems like the dynamic form doesn't work properly when saved and opened with a reader (I'm using Adobe Reader), but it works fine in the PDF Preview from LiveCycle Designer.
Looking forward to your answers!

Thanks, I figured I needed to import it with acrobat for it to work, but I thought I had to do it every time.

I'll update when I get the time to test it.

I found my problem, completely forgot the XML data isn't automatically linked to the form... I have to import it to the form every time I wish to fill it.

Is there any way I could make the document automatically import the XML data so we don't have to do it every time we open it?

Thanks!
