Trying to display date on field shows Pointer:####

Hi,

I'm struggling with displaying the date in a field on a table. I get this value Pointer:### instead of the actual date. (where #### is a series of numbers, e.g. Pointer:214470240)

Trying something like this

var date1 = new Date();

xfa.resolveNode("Row1[0].textfield").rawValue= date1;

Additionally, if I use date1.value or date1.formattedValue, then I get "Empty".

Can someone please explain? I'm using Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES2 ver. 9.0.1.0.2...

Thanks

Vincent

Hi Vincent,

Typically in JavaScript when you assign an object to a string the toString() method on that object will be called, even if you don’t
specify it.  However, this doesn’t seem to be the case when you are using the XFA object properties.

Try calling the toString() method explicitly.

     xfa.resolveNode("Row1[0].textfield").rawValue=date1.toString();

or maybe,

     xfa.resolveNode("Row1[0].textfield").rawValue=date1.toLocaleDateString ();

If you want more control over the format you can use util.printd(), http://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/acrobat_dc_sdk/2015/HTMLHelp/#t=Acro12_MasterBook%2FJS_API_AcroJ...
