Re: Table displayed not correct after page break lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
This may be too obvious a solution, but the standard approach to get a header row to repeat on tables that expand beyond the initial page is to:Select the header row from the table hierarchy. On the Object tab, select the Pagination subtab.Under "if dataset must be paginated," ensure that "Include Header Row on Initial Page" is checked.Ensure "Include Header Row in Subsequent Pages" is checked.That should work. If you need to include multiple rows in the repeat heading, LiveCycle can be a bit od...

Numeric Field Generating Unrelated Error lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
Something very odd is happening in a complex form I have been working on.On page 1 of the form, I have a numeric field. The field is meant to display a percentage and the field has a validation pattern assigned to you to display the field correctly.After exiting the field however, an error message is generated from an unrelated computation that may produce a divide by zero error: arithmetic over / underflow and the documentation refers to an unrelated computation on page 16 of the form.The perce...

Re: Reset a specific field lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
When only resetting a single field or a limited number of fields on a form, I have always used the reset button, then altered the code to select on the field(s) I wanted removed. Note that I have always used the full address of the field and " " around the field name. xfa.host.resetData("form1.#subform[0].TextField3");Example can be found here: Dropbox - Sample2.pdf In this example, the click button only clears the entry in Textfield3, not all four fields.Good luck.

Issue with Form Distribution lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
The form has a submit button that is coded to return to my inbox. However, several users have reported the mail is going to another inbox. I have checked the coded on the submit button and have been through all the XML source code and that email address for the unintended recipient is no where to be found. Yet it has to be associated with my form somehow. Any other ideas on where this email source may originate?

Re: Method to detect when a Numeric Field Value Has Been Changed by User lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
OK, I have worked out a procedure that will enable me to capture a previous value in another text field. This will enable a comparison; if the two values are not equal, then i will know the user has changed a value.The field in question is NumericField1. I essentially have 2 dummy fields (CurrentField and PreviousField1) on which I can perform the comparison. if I enter a value in NumericField1, then later change that value, PreviousField1 will capture the previous entry. Thus, if CurrentField1 ...

Re: My form is working great until it gets to page 3, and then formatting is all messed up. What could be wrong? lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
I downloaded your form. The problem isn't that the format runs away on the top of page three, it is because you are adding the 8th instance of the minutes subform; the height of this form simply takes the 8th instance to the top of page 3. Look in your add buttons for both the attendees and minutes table. You have an if (but no else) statement in the add buttons that seems to indicate you want to limit additional instances to 8. if that is true, it is easier to set the min/max property on the bi...

Without specific information about what is "messing" up, your problem is difficult to diagnose. Your page three may have different layout or object settings. Page 3 could be on a different master page. Can you possibly post the form, along with the specific format issues you are having with Page 3?

Re: LiveCycle - Signature field in Text box lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
When you set your text field to expand, you will likely need to set the parent object, the page, to flow as well in case you text field is permitted to expand to another page. If you just put a signature field under the text box, then set the parent object to flow, you signature field will appear immediately below the expandable text field.To keep a set distance between your expandable text field and a signature field, just insert a Rectangle below the expandable text field.

Re: Flow Form help with expanding rows - page break lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
Actually, the Pagination Tab was not in order. The pagination tab for your pages (Main, unnamed page2, and unnamed page3, were set to paginate to the "Top of the Next Page" thereby creating the page breaks. I fixed this. I also noted that when opening the file, the form was generating a FormCalc error. In Table E; your milage rate calculation uses a value of Cell3 which is not defined. Looks like that table needs a little more work.Otherwise the form should flow as requested. The corrected form ...

If After is "Go to Next Page," that is your problem.

Re: Clearing out of "Null" a subform lateniteNC - Adobe LiveCycle
Depending on the complexity of your form, different approaches may be needed, but the simple way to clear a form is to use the reset statement.In JavaScript, use:xfa.host.resetData("object name");will clear any data in that object. The object can be an entire form, page, or individual object on the form.You can use that a button (click event) or on other events, depending on what you want to do with your form.
