Re: Compatibility to different Reader versions when distributing Forms - Adobe LiveCycle 02-04-2009
Had a similar issue to this one just yesterday, for some reason as soon as the form was opened Reader consumed about half a gigabyte of memory, which would completely lock up some older machines. We tried the new Designer 8.2 SP2, and when the form was open, re-saved in a new name and re-opened Reader it only consumed about 50Mb. Really don't know how or why our form design had ended up with this problem, but for us the newly released Designer 8.2 Service Pack 2 fixed it. Your problem may not be...

Re: where is the javadoc for patExecContext ? - Adobe LiveCycle 03-02-2009
Looks like the Knowledge base was temporarily down, because it seems to be back now.

Re: LCDS 2.5.1: Problems storing Date() in database - Adobe LiveCycle 07-08-2008
This is a bit similar to a problem I had about a year ago... I believe my error may differ slightly because I was using the SQL Server 2005 edition of the driver:http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/messageview.cfm?forumid=60&catid=583&threadid=1289201&messageid=4664480The workaround I ended up using was not something I was happy with, but this was for a small internal project so it was good enough for me. As I said at the time the solution is "a bit dodgy", and I offered the diffs for t...

Re: New to LiveCycle need some help. How to.... - Adobe LiveCycle 16-07-2008
My bad, the server product forced me to download the file and open standalone when I tested, hence my incorrect assumption. Apologies.Well it's useful to know for future reference that there are no differences between email submissions from a document extended in Acrobat and one from the full Reader Extensions ES, although most of the projects I'm working currently on cannot use email submit for various reasons (no data security, excludes web mail users, etc.).

Re: Admittedly confused - Adobe LiveCycle 15-07-2008
I'm sure that LiveCycle Designer can create forms to meet all of those requirements. Unfortunately I personally don't have the time to write a specific guide for all of those tasks but perhaps someone on the forum might.Instead I'd recommend taking a look at "Creating Dynamic Forms with Adobe LiveCycle Designer", it's a good book which should take you to a fairly advanced level creating and scripting data bound forms. It's not too long either, which is a bonus.http://www.adobepress.com/bookstore...

Re: New to LiveCycle need some help. How to.... - Adobe LiveCycle 15-07-2008
This is a deliberate "feature" most likely to prevent certain usage scenarios under the limited licence granted to use Reader Extensions through Acrobat Pro.I can confirm that if you license the full Reader Extensions ES product it will not happen, and the file will be sent with the original name.

Re: New to LiveCycle need some help. How to.... - Adobe LiveCycle 14-07-2008
This will create a button which works correctly in Acrobat, but you will find that nothing happens when users on Adobe Reader click it. After you make the button you will need to open the file in Acrobat 8 Pro, then select "Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader" from the Tools menu then save the new file. In the new file that is produced, the button will be able to send the PDF/XDP via email from Adobe Reader (with data).Be careful using this, (from the top of my head) the licensing terms for Acro...

Re: drop down list - Adobe LiveCycle 14-07-2008
You can do it on XML Source view, but it's a bit complex. Disclaimer: I would only suggest doing this method if you have a vast number of items to paste in (and even then it may be worth considering if there is any way to eliminate the need to do this in your design, as large drop down lists can be quite troublesome).If you do decide to try this, practice on a empty form first until you are sure of the procedure.Add one or two entries in List Items with easy to recognise text (e.g. "Item Text 1"...

Re: While loop with Or statement - Adobe LiveCycle 12-06-2008
No, the only thing is that the script must be set to Javascript and not Formcalc from the drop down at the top corner of the script editor, but I would think you've already done this or the || wouldn't work either.If you navigate to the exact Line/Column indicated by the error message, is it actually the & character there, or something else?

Re: Drop Down List Item Values - Adobe LiveCycle 12-06-2008
It doesn't work, it just gives the label. While I was testing that I stumbled across a one liner which does work, and I wish I'd found earlier!In the change event:> DropDownList1.boundItem(xfa.event.newText);
