Re: Collecting data in an Excel spreadsheet - Adobe LiveCycle 20-09-2012
Hello again,I just made a test pdf form, added a date field, filled the form, and exported to XML. I had no trouble importing the date values into excel. The only issue that I can think of is if the date fields in the form contain a value that isn't recognized as a date... but even then, after a warning notification, Excel should still import the invalid date as text.If you can describe the exactly what you do and what happens, I might be able to help you work out what is happening.- Scott

Re: Create many entries "automatically" for List Box - Adobe LiveCycle 22-08-2012
Sorry about that...The only other way I know of is to edit the xml directly. Add a list box or drop down list to your form. Select the field, then click the XML Source tab (next to master pages tab. If it's not there, right click to the right of the preview tab in the gray area and check off XML Source).Where it says you can manually add in items in the following format: Option 1 Option 2you can paste all of your list items into column A in an excel sheet, then put the following formula into B1...

Re: LC Script Editor - connot view the scripts - Adobe LiveCycle 22-08-2012
Are you sure that you put the event on the click event? On the drop down list "Show" where you select "Click", there should be an option call "Events with Scripts". Try there, as it should show all scripts on the button, regardless of the event they are tied to...- Scott

Re: Create many entries "automatically" for List Box - Adobe LiveCycle 22-08-2012
If you want to copy/paste a list of values for a drop down or list box, the best way to do it is:1) copy the list (one item per line)2) select the drop down/list box3) Under Object Tab > Field Tab (next to the + - buttons that you use to manually add items) click the clipboard icon.That should do it for you. Let me know if you have any trouble,- Scott

Re: How do I use a radio button to enable a image - Adobe LiveCycle 21-08-2012
Hello again,Sorry about that. I followed my own directions, and there was only one hiccup.. The form variable doesn't always like to accept the default value the first time. Double check to make sure that the variable is set to "hidden". Go File > Form Properties > Variables, click on your variable, and make sure the pane to the right has "hidden" in it. Again, it's case sensitive.The other spot where I can see a potential for an issue is where you mention that you're using two check boxes inste...

Re: How do I use a radio button to enable a image - Adobe LiveCycle 20-08-2012
when I was first getting started, the thing that I always forgot to do was to save it as a dynamic xml pdf, instead of a static pdf. You can choose which one you're saving it as in the drop downin the "save as" wizard. If you did save it as a dynamic pdf form, andit still isn't working... let me know and i can provide further instuctuons.ps... this was sent via my tablet, and the space key doesn't seem to want to behave... sorryScott

Re: Collecting data in an Excel spreadsheet - Adobe LiveCycle 16-08-2012
Alright,First step is to make sure your form is set up to properly export xml data. Things to check:- All fields that will have data exported are given a specific name. You can do this by renaming everything in the hierarchy panel, or by setting the name on the binding tab.- Subforms correspond to an element group in the exported xml file. For example, having a text field called "Name" with a value of "Scott" inside a subform called "People" would result in the following XML: Scott- You can cont...

Re: Collecting data in an Excel spreadsheet - Adobe LiveCycle 15-08-2012
I do this all the time. If you created the form properly, being mindful of subform binding and control names, you should be able to export the data in a form to an XML format. Then you create an excel file and set the xml source to the exported data file. You can even merge the data from multiple filled out versions of the same form into one xml file. If you tell me which version of acrobat/excel you're using I could provide more specific instructions.- Scott

Re: How do I use a radio button to enable a image - Adobe LiveCycle 15-08-2012
Hey there,The first methos that comes to mind for me is to use a formvariable to keep track of the background visibility, then have the image in a readOnly image field on the master page. After that, use a little javascript to wire it all up.How To:Add a form variable to the form:- File, Form Properties- Click "Variables" tab- Click + button- Enter a variable name (i.e. BackgroundVisibility)- Set value to "hidden" (without the quotes)Add background to Master Page:- Click "Master Page" tab above ...

How do I use javascript or formcalc to reference child controls (not by name) - Adobe LiveCycle 15-08-2012
Hi everyone,I've created a ton of reports in the past, and I'm now looking at creating some reusable objects so that other people can use advanced form functionality without having to learn to use scripts.A lot of the coding was acheived using this, .parent, etc. so that they can rename controls and subforms without having to worry about breaking scripts. One issue that I am having is that Some of my code looks at children controls, and references them by name (for example, I have some code that...
