How to debug in Adobe LiveCycle?


Level 2

Hello, I am currently doing javascript tests and I need to debug, I tried several approaches to no avail:


console.println ("debug");  -> when i click on F5 nothing is displayed anywhere, what is it supposed to do?


xfa.host.messageBox ("This is a message", "This is a title", 3, 1); -> when i click on F5, i hear a Windows sound but the popup does not appear


I am using Adobe LiveCycle ES4 and Acrobat Reader DC.


Please help.

With Reader you'll have to force the JavaScript console to open with console.show().

This might not work in the PDF preview, since this tab uses the browser plugin of reader. You better open your PDF separately.
