Greetings,I need to extract comments from PDF during a process workflow. Will exporting metadata alone work? If not, could someone please point me in the right direction?I'm not enitrely sure where the comments reside (written, sticky notes, stamps, etc.).Thanks in advance,Alex

Could you please post the PDF and the XML extract from the Extract Data step? I ran into an issue like this earlier today. Just making sure it isn't the same issue. And if it is, I may be able to help you!

I agree with Steve's response, but if you don't have static positions of the # symbol, I'd do a lot.substring(lot.instanceOf("#"), lot.length);Just a little re-assurance for data integrity

do a translate on deserialized xml to switch null with '', then re-serialize your xml and the '' will be in there. Or when you're building your query, depending on the DBMS, you can do a SELECT CASE IS NULL THEN '' ELSE FROM ;As to why it puts the null string literal in the xml, I can only speculate (and that may be wrong).

Also, make sure you have the rows set to repeat because you may think your scripts aren't working when it's really a form field setting that isn't correct.

You'd have to loop over all of them. If you try doing a NF[*].fillColor, that will only set the first one I believe, so you'll have to do:var totalNF = NF[*].length;for(var i=0; i

For the large number of fields that need this applied to them, assuming you have the checkboxes in a logical order like:C1 C2 C3 C4 C5day day day day dayday day day day dayday day day day dayday day day day daySo if they select C3 (checkbox 3), we get it's instanceIndex (2), then we can loop over the rows:for(var i=0; i}that would then do a column (that's psuedocode of course...I'm at work and can't write up a real example for you...but if I could I would!)Hope that helps a little bit

First, I think you'd have to have a positioned form so you can have the image overlap text or what-have-you. Then you could try adding an image field close to the text field and set it's presence to hidden. Then once they mouse over (event of some sort), you could change the imageField.presence to visible.

Easiest way would be to have a calculate script on the Complete Total box that adds up all the other fields and if the checkbox is checked, then you can add the tax. So check out the calculate script and also having some Javascript/FormCalc knowledge would help.

Have you looked into using ANT to deploy your DSC to your livecycle server? That way you can uninstall and re-install with the new version of the DSC whenever you build/compile the component.

here's how I am understanding your issue:Now I kind of doubt that would work, but you'd need to specify the tables individidually (so not nested):I omitted types and namespaces, but hopefully that gives you an idea.

I'd be interested to see how this gets resolved. I was fooling around with JAWS a little bit back and found that JAWS has trouble with multiple subforms (i.e. complex tables and subforms within subforms with tables, etc.)

I didn't think ComplexType nodes have a name attribute. Normally you do:To make things easier, why not just make 2 tables? then have table A grow normally and then for each tableA.row, create however many KPIs you need in tableB.row.

Sorry for the late response, but are you building this number dynamically? Is it being bound to something, or being created in a livecycle process?Edit: Also, will the reference number be the same? If so, when you check if it needs to flow, just set the footer's rawValue for reference number to the current pages footer rawValue

That's basically what you are looking for. For the text fields, you'll want to specify a character length in the properties of the text field, and then in the exit script, let's say you have 2 fields called:TextInput1, TextInput2 (2 is the overflow)Then create a data connection with the schema specified and bind the TextInput1 and 2 to their respective fields then they will be in the schema. You can also bind the Rows of the table to the Row element, and the individual columns to their elements ...

I will defer to Adobe on this matter since I'm not sure how their licensing works regarding upgrading.

Are all of the fields you need to lock in individual subforms? If so, you could just do subform.access = "readOnly"; and that would lock everything in subform.If you want to send me your simple form, I'll look at it and help you get a solution (alex.kloft@gmail.com)

in a script object (I'll name Helper):function calculateDateDifference(dateOne, dateTwo){ var dOne = new Date(dateOne); var dTwo = new Date(dateTwo); var oneDay = 1000*60*60*24; //milliseconds in a day return Math.ceil((dTwo - dOne) / oneDay);}then you would just do:var percentage = (Helper.calculateDateDifference("July 1, 2010", "September 1, 2010") / 365) * 100;That should work...hope it helps

Yep, you get it.I really only put Date related stuff in script objects ("elsewhere" objects), but it's also a place you can put validation scripts to check fields for just numbers, just alpha characters, etc. They are pretty helpful for reducing the amount of repeated code.Referencing other form fields:to get the value of a field, you would call: fieldName.rawValue. rawValue gets you the value that is displayed in the text field. Using drop-down lists are a bit more confusing because you want to...

Ahhh sorry, I failed to explain fully. HelperFunctions is just a script object (right click the form's root node and say "insert script object". HelperFunctions is just what I named it. You could name it Jerry if you want) This is basically like a javascript file (.js) where you can write a whole bunch of functions using just javascript for reference anywhere on the form. So if you have multiple fields that need a date formatted from 09/01/2010 to September 1, 2010, you can do that using a javas...

I tend to like using Javascript over FormCalc, but I would think the syntax would be the same:var currentVal = Current.rawValue;Current.rawValue = currentVal + 1;

My lesson learned:In order to use new Date(), I had to put it in a script object. This allowed me to call it without issue (the Date() constructors were why your form was failing).Best Practice:I put a display pattern on your StateMinimumWage field...use it on all of your dollar fields, so you have the trailing 0s...decimal fields remove trailing 0s for some reason it seems.I have sent you the form from my work e-mail.Hope that helps you!Alex
