Hi Ali,

There is a book "Creating dynamic forms with Adobe LiveCycle Designer" by J.P. Terry and there are some books on Acrobat that have a chapter on Designer forms but there is not a lot out there and J.P. Terry's book is a good few versions behind.

I have learnt most from John Brinkmans blog,

Nialls blog

Radzmar blog

Stefan's blog


I'm sure there are others, and the JavaScript engine is the FireFox one,

Maybe other people can add to the list
