Hello Everyone ,

I have create a pdf file using adobe livecycle .

I add a below code .

var today = new Date();

this.rawValue = parseInt(today.getMonth()+1)+"/"+today.getDate()+"/"+today.getFullYear();

When i run a pdf file in adobe livecycle ,current date is filled in textfield using above code .

But , when i save this file and open in adobe reader or adobe acrobat pro , then above code is not working (not giving error).

Please check review problem and give a solution .

Thanks in advance ,

This seems to work just fine for me. What version of LC, Reader, and Acrobat are you using?

LC ES3, Preview

Reader XI, Acrobat X
