Hi,

I'm kind of new to Adobe Livecycle and programming in general.

I have a problem with my form. I have set of choices and depending on users choice, different drop down shows. The form works normally but when I save it and reopen it, the choices are back to default. I guess this is due to initialization event where I put default value (which I want to see only for the first time before the user has made a choice). Can someone explain to me what kind of command and in which event to put it in order that my form initializes with values from last save?

Many thanks,

I've had the same issue in the past.

If my memory's right, I resolved it by setting the form's properties as illustrated below, automatically preserving scripting to form when savedLiveCycle_Properties.JPG

The dropdown may not have set any data binding, so there's nothing be saved for it.

Many thanks MHWinter​, but I already have this option on and it still doesn't save. My problem is the following: for example -  there is a radiobutton with b and c options. if the user chooses option b), dropdown menu will be shown with the options b1, b2, b3. if he chooses c, the b dropdown will be hidden and c dropdown with options c1, c2, c3 will be visible). What it happens when I save and reopen is that only the radiobutton choice is remembered but the dropdown shown is the one that i created to be default saying "choose one of the options" - which is in the initialization event.
