Re: Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8 - Add days to Current Date in another text field

You will need to add instructions for the user and write a validation script that checks if the 'day of the week' selected is a correct date or not.You can extract the 'day of the week' from the number value for the date by using the format string for the day of the week in the "Num2Date()' funciton format option.// returns the day of the week 1 - 7 day of the week, Sunday = 1Num2Date(fDateValue, "E")// returns the abreviated day of week - 3 character valueNum2Date(fDateValue, "EEE")// returns f...

When writing scripts, many languages require strict capitalization of key words as well as correct spelling. In LiveCycle Designer one uses 'Date'.

Has your IT function posted the links to the patch or updated Acrobat/Reader with the latest updates that fix the latest problem for version s 7-9?Adobe has acknowledged the problem and fixed it. As noted in the initial reports, this vulnerability is rare in the real world. And Acrobat/Reader JavaScript has very few exits outside of Acrobat/Reader, unlike the OS JavaScript. One should also look at all the functions within Acrobat JavaScript that have been restricted due to possible privacy and s...

You can not do this. The best you can do is to run a script within the will print action and mark the form in some manner that the form is incomplete.

You will have apply Extended Reader Form Rights. You can use Acrobat 8 or better for forms being distributed to 500 or fewer users or a LiveCycle ES server.

NO it is not the same. AcroForms was the form structure developed by Acrobat and is more text based while LiveCycle Designer was developed by JetFroms using the new XML format, which could be placed within a PDF wrapper and displayed by Acrobat/Reader and the XML form has a limited Acrobat JavaScript interface.You have to use Acrobat's AcroForm Toolbar to add and modify form fields if you are going to replace the underlying pages.

This does assume your users do want to use their computer this way. You are aware that there is a big security problem with any sensative. data being kept on a system with a WiFi and music sharing software, especially when this software is configured to also share data files or documents. Many of the sites warning of this are being censored because there is just so much personal data for so many persons being disclosed. Up to 27,000 returns at one time.

Do you do taxes for free?Do you pay for tax software or do the programers give it to you for free?Well if you answered yes to any of the above, Adobe is making its living by creating software that can create forms, but it is not for free and the more features you want the more it will cost you.I assume you do not use Turbo Tax as your software, so you do pay more than $29.95 so you can have the advanced features to handle the more complex returns.

Because formatted date strings are language dependent, you should specify the optional formatted date string pattern.With a field named "MyDate" and a formatted value of "MMM DD, YYYY", the script to add 14 days in FormCalc is:if(HasValue(MyDate)) thenNum2Date( (Date2Num(MyDate.formattedValue, "MMM DD, YYYY") + 14), "MMM DD, YYYY")elsenullendifYou may also want to add a validation format to ensure that the inputted date is acceptable.

Tarek,Maybe you should report this bug because you have the problem and will know the details.The date field not only uses the calendar, and a formatted date string, but it will also process a UTC date. So if you really want to strictly control this, you will need to write your own validation script.

Yes, but you need to set a lot of the optional formatting options for the field using the strings I posted above. The format fields are CASE dependent!The order of the date elements is important.

That is true, you can only insert or merge the non-XML pdf files. So properly designed forms using the Forms Tool of Acrobat can be inserted or merged but not LiveCycle Designer created forms.

Re: Math calculation problem! - Where is the help? ? ?

For many calculations, you need to check that you have the necessary fileds before calculating. For date and time calculations, the exact format of the data string is needed to correctly convert the date. For example Jan 3, 2009 can be written like "01/03/2009" ("MM/DD/YYYY" or 03/01/2009 ("DD/MM/YYYY") and using the wrong formatting string will get you the values for Mar 1, 2009.

Yes, but you will need to use a folder level JS to access the identity object and then for the authorized identities you could unlock the fields. You will still need to keep the form locked or a user with LCD could disable your controls.

You can make your forms in Acrobat. LiveCycle Desinger is an XML form within a PDF wrapper and many features of Acrobat are lost. This is also why there are differences with LiveCycle Designer's JavaScript and Acrobat JavaScript.
