Hi Bala ji,

Have you got your form done or still looking for help? Paul said right you need to Adobe LiveCycle Designer to integrate your JavaScript within the Interactive PDF form.

Hi,

You can set up the workspace in LC Designer to suit how you will work on your forms.

Here are some pointers (in particular note 5):

LC Designer Workspace.png

  1. The Hierarchy view is fairly important, as you can select objects on the form and perform actions. For example you can wrap selected objects in a subform or click and drag objects.
  2. The Objects Library is obvious.
  3. The page layout, where you will work on positioning objects. You can also view the Master Page, the XML Source (you rarely need to go in there) and the Preview.
  4. You can select objects on the page (or in the Hierarchy) and then complete tasks. For example add script into the object's events.
  5. The Script Editor is very important when you want to start adding interactivity. If the editor is only one line high, then I would drag the bottom edge down, so that you can see a few lines at a time. This is where you will select the event that you want to script against (Show dropdown), set the scripting language and where the script will run (client mainly or server). You add script to an object using the Script Editor.
  6. It is worthwhile setting up other palettes, so that they are close to hand. For example, the Object, Layout, Border and Accessibility palettes and the Font and Paragraph palettes.

Hope that helps,

Niall

Hi,

"Events with script" will show all of the events in an object that have script. If an object does not have script then this will show a blank editor. To start adding script you would select the event that you want the script to fire.

For example, if you select a Button on your form, you may want to type in script into it's click event. Just select the click event from the Show dropdown:

You can look at script in any of the events by selecting from the "Show" dropdown.

Please note that all of these screenshots are of a form opened in LiveCycle Designer.

Hi,

If you have a look at this post and a number beneath it, you will see how Paul calls a function from the button.

The main script is in the function.

When you complete your work in LiveCycle Designer and save it now open it in

- Adobe Acrobat (not in Reader)

- Go to "File" menu

- Click on "Save As"

- Now select 4th option "Reader Extended PDF"

- And now select last option "Enable Additional Features"

still need help feel free to post your questions here...

First of all you need make your Interactive PDF reader extened to save and work in Adobe Reader. You're not getting my point so first of all implement my above said points and then you can save your PDF in Adobe Reader.

That is correct, the ability to Reader enabled a form is not in Reader. It is only available in Acrobat or LiveCycle Resder Extensions ES2.5. See here for further info: http://assure.ly/etkFNU.
