New to Lifecycle - need direction on if... then... else

First off; i hope this is the correct place to ask this question, so if not, please let me know where to post.

I am using LC designer 8, and having an issue with the if... then... else. statement

i am writting a script using FormCal --> calculate the code below is what i need to do.  The issue that i am running into is that the code only performs one (1) of the actions under the then/else statement, is there a seceret to having more than one statement under the then / else -

This code is behind a barCode field if that makes a difference, seems if i comment out the presence statements the values are set correctly, but not the presence.

if

  (Text2.rawValue == 0)

then

   $.presence = "invisible"

   $.rawValue

= Text2.rawValue

else

   $.presence = "visible"

   $.rawValue

= Text2.rawValue

endif

thanks for your help.

Save your form as a dynamic form and it will work.

Attaching file w/ only the two fileds affected; since the last post, i have played around with the print only options of the presence; but the issue with this is that the logic doesnt seem to work all the time; sometime the value will show and other time is does not.

Seems to work fine for me. Which version of Acrobat are you testing with?

I am using the "preview" tab and the viewer {version 8] to text. from what i see the setting of the values work with no issue, but the presence does not. - i can see this when i comment out the , BC.relevant = "+print" line of code.

When i first bring it up, the value is SS_text null - thus the barcode should not be visable on the screen, when i populate the SS_text, the barcode should be shown; but it does not appear for me, is it working for you that way ?    should i be doing somthing like the code below instead of the way i was,  i still cant get the barcode to show with it either.

if

(SS_Text

<> null)

  then

    BC.presence

= "visible"

    BC

= SS_Text

else 

//is null

   BC.presence 

= "hidden"

   0

endif
