page n of m doesnt not wok in reader 8 while it does in reader 9

Hi,

I have a smart form developed using the life cycle designer ES. I added the page number increment field "page n of m" on the form. The pdf when opened in an adobe reader version 8 crashes when I try to print a mdi while it prints fine when I use the adobe reader version 9.

Can someone please confirm if there is a work around for this or it is a bug in the reader 8.

Thanks

Keep the Page n of m field on the form and change the presence to hidden. Place an another text field on the screen and change the type property in value tab to protected. Place the below code in the Layout Ready event of the TextField.

this.rawValue = "PAGE " + CurrentPage.rawValue + " OF " + PageCount.rawValue;

This is a work around.

Thanks

Thanks Srini..!

This solution seems to work in some scenarios and not all.

When I try to add entities/signatoies as per form design this problem is still there. "Adobe reader 8 encountered a problem and needs to close " is the error message when i click on the print form.
