How do i collect 3 x text lines into one line


Level 1


i have made a Adobe pdf form and try to convert it into a LiveCycle form.

This is apparently a problem, cause it simply doeset work.....

What i´m trying to do is having 3 different input fields and one filed that collect the 3 input text in one line:

text1 (input field 01)

text2 (input field 02)

text3 (input field 03)

text1text2text3 (Read field containing: field01+field02+filed03)


Normaly in Adobe PDF i just give the three fields name,- and the forth i give the script:

var a = this.getField("tekst_01").value;
var b = this.getField("tekst_02").value;
var c = this.getField("tekst_03").value;
event.value = (a)+(b)+(c);

But i cant seem to make it work in LiveCycle!!!!!


I´m totaly new to LiveCycle, so please have that in mind if you got an solution 😉

The code woudl be a little different but the prinicpal is the same. On the field where you

want the result to show up you wodul put this code on the calculate event:

this.rawValue = Field01.rawValue + field2.rawValue + field3.rawValue

In XFA Forms the "this" refers to the teh current object NOT to the document (like in Acroforms).

Hope that helps
