Hi Paul,I did exactly as you explained.However, there was no folder called Test or any folder containing the getSequenceNumber process.UPDATE: After closing and reopenind Workbench, the Test folder and the process are there!Thank you!Now I still need to find out how to connect to the database.

Hi Paul,Thank you once again! I will proceed this way.Now, where do I create the db Table? From Workbench? Do I have access to LiveCycle MySQL to create using the SQL statements?This is not clear to me. Thank you.Marcos

Hi Hodmi,Thanks for replying.Well, here's what I need to do... maybe you can help.I need to create a process to control a sequence number to be applied to a PDF form every time a button is pressed on the form (or whenever the form is opened to be filled in).So, in order to store the last number used I need a database, right? Are you saying I must have another database outside LiveCycle to store this number?Thank you!Marcos

Hi Paul!Thank you very much for the sample files!Well, yes, I believe they have a complete server, that is, they have Reader Extensions and Foundations should be there. They're using Oracle instead of MySQL, anyway, but I guess it makes no difference at all.Now, to start with, I imported your LCA in the Application Management interface... but nothing is showing on the application list after I import it. Maybe I skipped some operation, some configuration?Thank you for your help!Marcos

Hi Paul,Thank you very much for replying,Definitely, yes. This is exactly the scenario I have.The client has Reader Extensions and all forms work over a network.Today they are using an old platform called JefForms (actually Adobe bought JetForms a long time ago), so today their forms read the sequential number from a TXT file, increment the value there and places this number on the form.Now they've moved on to PDFs and LiveCycle Reader Extensions - it's all there in place. So, yes, the idea is r...

Hello! I have this form on which I need to place a sequence number for control reasons.How can I create this field? As PDFs can't write or read txt files, let alone over networks, I suppose I must call a webservice to read the sequence number somewhere, increment it and retrieve this number to be filled in a field in the form, correct? Possible? Thank you for any ideas! Marcos

Hi Niall,Thank you very much for the info. But actually I was looking for a script to place in one place and define all fields with automatic tab.I agree 100% with you that it would be much better to use tab order, but the client does not accept this and wants a magic solution.I suspected it was not possible, but... you know, I need to be sure before telling the client it cannot be done.Thanks anyway.

Hello!Is there a way of defining automatic tab for ALL fields in a form?To define automatic tabs on the fields, individualy, I'm using this FormCalc field:var fullCount = var currentString = xfa.event.newTextif(Len(currentString) >= fullCount) then xfa.host.setFocus("next_field_name")endifNow, is there a way of defining automatic tabs for all fields based on the order defined in the Tab Order panel?Thank you for any ideas!Marcos

Hello!A client wants to use PDF forms (around 2000 forms) in their company, most of them using JavaScript or FormCalc scripts, but today their employees (thousands) are not allowed to activate JavaScript in their computers. Obviously this will have to be changed.They say their security people are afraid this could open security breaches...Please, is there a way this can be solved using LC Digital Signatures? Or any other solution?Thank you very much for any ideas!Marcos

Hi there!I know, I know, no one should be printing forms and killing trees but, you know, the client is always right...So, this client is creating forms in LC Designer and part of these forms (around 300) will be printed.They are very picky when it comes to milimetric precision, so they need the printed versin to be exactly the size they define in LC Designer.Now, when printed, the forms do not keep the right size, even when setting the proportion as 100%.Is there a way to fix this?Thank you ver...

Hello!This is a critical one for our client...The client is importing IFD forms (JetForms) in LC Designer to convert them into PDF. After importing, a lot of changes must be done in order to adapt the forms to the newer technology. In some cases this involves a whole lot of work.However, there is one problem we believe we shouldn't be facing: special characters are not being converted correctly (the original IFD forms are in Brazilian Portuguese).For instance, when importing a form containing th...

Oh my! Well, thank you both for your replies but,... we had already found these options and changed their values.... but nothing changed!Where's the catch? Just changing those values should be changing the gap between guides, grid lines, etc?We're still a bit lost here. Could there be some differences between LC Designer versions?Thank you!Marcos

Hello!I have a big quantity of forms being imported from JetForm format (IFD) to be converted into PDF.One of the difficulties we're facing is we cannot (so far) change the interval value between the grid lines, so it's difficult to edit object with milimetric precision.Another difficulty: in JetForm Designer we have on screen indication of the distance between, say, two lines, in milimeters (or whatever unit we're working with). We did not find this option in LC Designer.And a third difficulty:...
