When using rawValue , it will need you to verify first that the rawValue is not null. So, technically you need to verify with a if statement first that the rawValue isnt null, if it is null, then you can consider the validation to return false. Otherwise, if the rawValue is different than null, that is when you can handle the data and verify its length.

Hi there, if you are using xfa.event.newText, it should be within the "enter" event. Any other event will need to use this.rawValue instead. I hope this will help

I am not familiar with InDesign, but I'm pretty sure that creating PDF forms using InDesign does not create XFA based forms. It is probably creating PDF using AcroForm standardized as ISO 32000.

Hi there, I'm not really savvy in the QR Code subject, therefor I've looked up information related to LCD and QR Codes... Technically, if you want to handle the height and width of the QR Code using LCD, somehow you'll have to handle an algorithm based on data provided to the QR code to change a specific property. Since a QR Code and PDF417 is two different entities... I am not sure if it is a good idea to readjust the size of the code bars. Your best shot at this would be modifying the followin...

Hi there, I can't directly give you the solution at hand without the object references. Without the hierarchy, all I can give you is the syntax on how to make this work.So technically, you need a calculate event for each fields which you need to input a calculated value or 0$, both will have the same syntax, but different outcome. For the Amount Due Traveler it should look something like the following:Amount Due Traveler :: calculate - FormCalc if (Expenses gt Advances) then ;Calculate Amount Du...

Hi there, you must have something else that would interfere with this line of code...Although, xfa.host.resetData(), doesn't have an 's' at the end of "host".I'm trying the same thing on a blank static PDF form within IE and it works fine. I tried "Client" or "Client and Server". Look around if you can find any other code. Also... maybe you could test something out, verify what is the viewer type when opening the PDF with the browser.Use the following line to display what is the application hand...

Hi there, It is simpler than you think actually.As long as the field does not lock all fields and the button is still usable, you can use the resetData method with the signature field's somExpression as follow:xfa.host.resetData(Row2.SignatureField1.somExpression);

Hi there,By the look of it it seems like you are somehow calling calculate... I am not sure if it needs more investigation with the Hierarchy, but it looks like you have an extra line of code which would be the event itselfLook within the event and make sure that you do not have a line event duplicate like the following:I hope this will help, otherwise please provide with an image with the full content of the event, plus and image of the hierarchy.

I'm sorry, I thought it wasn't that hard to do such a thing. Either my solution or radzmar is supposed to work, but if you can't seem to fit a solution for your issue... I don't think I could be of any help here.Good luck

It is possible to have tables next to each other within a "Flowed" content, right under the Content drop down, there's the "Flow Direction" option and if you select "Western Text" option, it will allow items to place automatically next to each other instead of "Top to Bottom".

Don't forget to set your subform as "Flowed" content... the options to repeat subform/table for each data item will always be unavailable when the parent content holder is "Positioned" content

Technically you can have this option available within master pages if you wrap the content inside a subform.

Not sure if you'd encounter some issue for trying this, but your best bet would be having the header table part of your Master Page just outside of the Content Area so it appears on every page...

If it works without the relayout method, it's better this way...On my first response to you, I did not consider the fact that the data you input within the tables is imported...The issue where cells can't have their height reduced is usually triggered when the user can change the values within the cell, (only when you try to keep the highest height of the fields within a row)however if the data imported in the tables is static and cannot be changed, don't mind this issue.

Well first, let's see if your code is working well... try using the relayout method at the end of your code.if not, then maybe you will need another approach

Hi there,I don't think setting the height for each field in a loop is the best method...You might want to create a field which will contain the highest value and then set each of them individually within the layout:ready or initialize event...But beware, this is not recommended, because as soon as you control the height of the fields based on multiple fields, an issue will be created. When you assign a height to a field and then the field with the highest height is reduced, all the fields will s...

Hi there,I am not sure if there's a better way to do such a thing, but maybe the best way to achieve such a thing would be creating multiple instances of the initial page to keep them separated from one page to another...E.g.: The table could have a maximum of 9 rows, and when a 10th row is populated, the page or the subform holding the 2 tables would have an extra instance for additional rows... and so on...This is kind of a long stretch, but efficient for displaying the way you need it to be.I...

Hi there,There could be other reasons for this not to work... but I think I know why it behaves like this...technically if you want to have a num format along with a null format you'd have to assign both formats...if your format initially look like this:num{$ z,zzz,zz9.99} and you'd like to add the null format on any event you'd have to add the format along with the num format to ensure not losing any of those...To have a numeric format along with a null format, you'd have to get it to look like...

Thanks radzmar, I will test this out next week. But on first thoughts, it might not work because textfields can litterally be anywhere in the form...I basically don't know what's the height needed for any textfield to reach the next page. But I'll test things out, I might be missing something like knowing if the texfield is only on 1 page or if it breaks to another page. If I am able to know if it breaks to another page, then I could verify the height to see if it's necessary to break or not.Goo...

You can insert a message box in any event to test whenever the events are triggered.This way you'll get about when these events will be triggered.

Hi there,It is hard to give direct pointers without the hierarchy at hand.I can see you are calling the 'parent' of "SuperficieConstruccion" which in theory would be "SubFrmConstruccion"...either way it should be working if the table in question is a children of this 'parent'However this method will only remove the data and it won't reset the instances back to original..If you want to remove all rows you could simply insert an instance on the first index and set instances to 1 like the following...

Hi there,when using a button to add a row you are probably using the following method:by using this method, it will return the instance added within the table. So you can hold the new instance in a variable, like the following:with the new variable, you have the right path to be able to set focus on the field you want with the following:I hope this will help you.
