I'm pretty sure this question has been asked several times, but i'm quite new at adobe live cycle and i'm already having an issue. I feel as if it's a really simple issue...?
to be able to access the checkbox2, checkbox3 and so on, you need to make sure you have the right reference_syntax
By looking quickly at your form without the part Row in the hierarchy, I'd say you are missing the parent's object in the resolveNode() method
Cell is for checkbox1
then Cell must be for checkbox2, to be able to access to checkbox2 you must access to it's parent first
Make sure each objects before checkbox2 in the resolveNode above is the right objects to access to that checkbox exactly
Ive tried that already. I figured out a different way to implement the unchecks though, via right click @ checkbox and using the actions list. now im just wondering if there is a faster way to implement these lines of codes manually without using the actions list.
I believe the SOM Expression you're using are just wrong because you use this.resolveNode which will start a search for nodes only in the subtree of the XML source beginning with the current node (Checkbox1).
As there are no nodes below TopmostSubform.Page1.Table.Row.Cell.Paragraph.Checkbox1 resolveable and so nothing happens.
You screenshot doesn't show the hierarchy of this part of the form, so I cannot say, which will be the correct SOM expression for you to use.
You might always have used it this way because the objects were in the place holder (subform, row) but you have to make sure to use the right SOM Expression as radzmar said a.k.a. reference_syntax
See the picture below how it works :
To access the textfield on the button's event I need to access the textfield's parents to be able to get to its rawValue, otherwise the object is not accessible from the xml node tree of the button.
So because Subform1 is the parent of Button1, all the accessible objects would be within Subform1 AND all objects at the same level as any parent of Button1.
Otherwise any other object not considered within the XML tree is not accessible
I hope this help
