Hi,I used LSD many moons ago to create some dynamic forms that can be saved. It is a great form but took countless hours to get there.My simple question is this - Is this still the only real tool to create dynamic PDF forms that can be saved?Are there any other ways, adobe or not, to make these types of forms? I am not in an enterprise environment and do not need the back end options or features. I need dynamic forms specific to my business needs that can be saved.I just don't think I want to be...

So - I guess I do not understand how to manipulate the "XML source" I assumed this was javascript on the box. I will keep looking. If anone has more info for a layman please pass it along.

Thanks to you Jono those are great resources. I really like the PDF forms Bible that is now pretty old. I wish they would update it. To be honest I think it helps a newbie (like me) much more than the J.P. Terry book. J.P.'s book is fine, I just wish it was more complete - like an updated version of the Bible book. I purchased Terrys book and went throught pretty fast. Certainly learned some things about ES4 I did not konw. I recomended it, but wish there were more options out there.http://www.a...

Thanks Magus That is very helpful indeed.Do you ahve a screen shot or sample you would share of how your first part gets implemented? This soulds like a great idea. By grey out do you mean a grey background?.13337 is the space between fields? I did not konw that could be set. I will have a look a the grid setup.I am going to try to put a sample of your radio button idea together - Thanks!

Hi,I have made a number of forms fo the past few years. I feel like they look dated and are somewhat stale... I have found a few resources out there on Javascript best practices and more mechanical focused articles, but nothing really specific design as it relates to usability and "feel". I realized some of this is subjective and varies depending on the form's purpose, but I am just looking for some new ideas.Does anyone have a resource or listing of froms they think are outstanidng from a desig...

Wow that was great - took me a little while to figure out the ascii table worked. I added some wild cards. This var random = Math.floor(Math.random() * 150); I don't really get to be honest, but it works. Any explination would be enlighting.Ok - attempt to complicate this one step further. Is there a way to prevent charcters from repeating?Magus - thanks so much for your help.

Hi,I would like a "gererate password" button that fills a filed with an alphanumeric passwrod of 8 characters or so. Wildcard characters would be good as well. Can anyone help me with a script that can create random passwords? Also - I understand it may not be truly random as a response duplicated could be created every 1,233,432 times or whatever and thats OK It would be random enought. Thanks much.

Hi all,I was originally introduced to LiveCycle in Acrobat Pro 9 I believe. I was thinking of upgrading, but am not show if I should or how to do it. It seems the livecycle product is separate from now from pro. I am mainly interested in building "live" dynamic forms for our business process and client intake. I am not interested, at this time, with all the back end software and server element.Questions1. Should I upgrade to a new version of Livecycle? - if so which one do I need? 2. Is it worth...

Yes that script object is what I am trying to define. How do I accomplish this? If I am starting with a blank from how do I define them? I do not see a function all for variable? Meaning change event, exit, etc.... how do I actually put these in the script. Do they have to be attached to an object or just attached to a sub form?I cannot get that variable/script to occur in my hierarchy..... In essence - how/where do I define script variables. I have seemingly tried everything.Thanks so much agai...

Niall - thank you so much for responding."Form variables are added via File > Form Properties > Variables tab. Once you have added the variables there, they will appear in the hierarchy under (Variables)." This is the frustrating part for me - I see the variables there when I do this, but they have a "dot" logo in front of them which I assume means form variables... but the ones in many of the examples have a "form" logo which I assume means a script variable. Do I need to add a form variable be...
