Thank you again! 🙂But we still have problems...Runs ok with a new blank form with one field.With one of the client's forms, brings up the error message:"Error: oldValue.replace is not a function".Marcos

No, I haven't changed your script!I just tried to run it to correct one of the client's forms.It still works if I create a new blank form, create a field and run the script.Marcos

Hi Radzmar!Great!I think this will solve the issue.Now, something strange is happening - the script was working just fine until yesterday...Now, when I try to run it, I get this error message:"Error: Invalid property get operation; line doesn't have property 'value'"Any idea of why this is happening?Thank you very much once again!Marcos

Hi Radzmar!Thank you so much for your script! I've tested and it works great.Now, I still have some questions...1. If the character to be replaced is, say, a "ç", must I use the unicode equivalent in the regular expression?2. Curiously enough, special characters located inside the tags are translated correctly and should not be touched by the scrtpt. How do I test for these tags to leave them unchanged?Thank you again!Marcos

You can use a control variable to make this button a toggle.For instance, use a variable like circleVisible = 0 and make circleVisible = 1 when the button is clicked and the circle is visible.So you would have something like this, when button is clicked:if (cicleVisible == 0) { circleVisible = 1} else { circleVisible = 0}Got it? 🙂

Hello Radzmar!Thank you very much!The characters are in static texts, captions, etc. Curiously enough, they translate correctly in tooltips.Yes, of course I can share a sample. Where do I send it to, please? I did not see any attachment option in this forum.Thank you!!Marcos

Hello Radzmar!Thank you very much for your reply!Actually I need this done at design time. Yes, I know I will have to develop it myself, I'm just a bit lost as to where to start.Reason for all this: client upgraded 2,400 forms from old times JetForms and a great number of Portuguese special characters did not translate correctly, the result is a mess.We have even contacted Adobe Support but they did not find a solution for this problem.So I was left with the task of correcting this...

Hello!Reading around I found out it is possible to create macros in LC Designer and placing them under the Tools menu (http://blogs.adobe.com/formfeed/2010/01/designer_es2_macros.html). However, what I need is something hopefuly simpler: I need a script to find and replace certain characters in the form text, such as replacing % with ç, globaly.Where do I find simple examples of how to do this? Thank you for any ideas! Marcos

Hi again, Niall!Thank you again for your great examples!The dynamic width drop-down will cover some of the client's expectations.However, they would like it to work even when the drop-down is within a table cell with a width smaller than the width they want the drop-down to show when the mouse enters the field.I'm afraid you will say this is not possible... Or at least not without a lot of coding, using subforms or the like.Any ideas? Thank you very much!Marcos

Hi there!I built a simple web service to generate a sequence number to be cosumed by PDF forms.It works perfecly when I run PDFs on my machine, using localhost, etc.Whem deployed on the client's servers it does not work. The only difference is the client is running LiveCycle on Linux over their inhouse corporate network.When the web service is added to forms in LC Designer, the ws structure is built correctly and if called from a web browser the XML response is ok too.I've checked LiveCycle log ...

Hi Niall,Thank you very much for your help! I will definitely give it a try.I couldn´t agree more with you about the user experience but, well, this client is really hesitant to abandon the old technology feel.I have already implemented lots and lots of scripts and workarounds to make their PDF behave as their old JetForm forms.Thank you!Marcos

Hello!A client is migrating their 2,400 forms from old JetForms to PDF (LiveCycle Designer) and would like to keep the same functionalities he's used to in the old platform. However, some of the old tool features do not seem to be present in LiveCycle.Suppose a drop-down menu in a table cell, containing items which lengths are bigger than the table column. In JetForm, when you open the drop-down it spans over the columns to show all its contents, not cutting the drop-down list contents.I tried t...

Hello!This problem is driving me crazy!... I've placed a float numeric field and used the following pattern: num{zzz,zzz,zzz,zz9.99}This field should display and accept floating point numbers with 2 decimal places and in European format.The default locale for this form is Portuguese (Brazil).So... if I type something like 99999 the field displays correctly 99.999,00.Now, if I type 99999.00, again the field displays correctly 99.999,00.However, if I type 99999,00 (with a comma instead of a period...

Hi Nith!Thank you for replying!I thought the answer would be something like this.But how do I associate this input variable (an integer?) to the starting point or the first activity of the process?Right now I've got two activities, the first increments the value in the data table, the other one reads the updated value.Must I create a third activity in the begining, where I can associate the input variable?Thank you very much!!Marcos

Hi,With the help of this forum I have now a simple process in Workbench that acts as a Webservice to generate a sequential number.When invoked by a PDF form it reads a value from a database, increments the value and then reads the db again to send the incremented value back to the form.It's working great, but now I need something else: I have around 60 forms and each will have its own sequence.The way I see it all I have to do is:- include a new column in the db table to store the forms IDs (I h...

This box should be opened by pressing a button on the form.As I understand there's no way of placing a scroll bar on a PDF message box. So... what's left?I thought of creating a subform and making it invisible, turning its visibility on when the button was pressed. Now, what would be the best choice for a text field in this form? I tried a plain text object but the...
