Hi,

as I am creating forms with Adobe Livecycle Designer this forum is of great help! However, I was looking for a book or guide about Livecycle Designer. There are several ones, but can anyone recommend a specific book?

Thanks,


Erik

Hi Erik,

I would strongly recommend Creating Dynamic Forms with LC Designer by JP Terry - excellent!!

Also a book that doesn't deal with scripting at all but is very good is Forms that Work by Caroline Jarrett and Gerry Gaffney.

The Adobe PDF Forms Bible is okay, but mainly focuses on AcroForms.

Windjack Solutions have a subscription based service for solutions and scripts at http://www.pdfscripting.com. It has a lot of AcroForm script that can be amended to suit LC Designer and a growing library of LC Designer solutions.

Here are some online resources that you might find helpful:

http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_lc_scriptingBasics

http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_lc_scriptingReference

http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_lc_formCalc

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/livecycle/articles/Adobe_XML_Form_Object_Model_Refer ence.pdf

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/lc_migrating_acrobat_xmlform.pdf

And a very handy resource (and while it is for version 6 it is still very good because of the way it is laid out):http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/tips/CalcScripts.pdf

There are some solutions on the Adobe Cookbooks: http://cookbooks.adobe.com/livecycle_designer_es

Lastly, check out the Developer's Network on http://www.adobe.com/devnet/livecycle/

Good luck,

Niall
