I already looked at all the thread. Not sure why my code is not working. I tried all scenarios recommended by the references and the posts in this forum. As soon as I wrap the function with the trustedFunction, the function is no longer working.

Hello,I created a form in ES2 (version 9). I saved it to be compatible with the older version. As the form is sent to users and is filled out. As I receive the form back and open it in adobe pro 8, the drop-down list values that users selected disappear. The drop-down lists are populated by a javascript function with 2 dimentional array. Thus, as user selects a value for dropdown1, the dropdown2 list is populated based on the value on dropdown1.Somehow, the values selected for these dropdowns ar...

There are a lot of examples for reset button in this forum. Can you use resetData() which clears all the fields in the form?

Hello,I have a subform which has an 'Add' button. When user clicks on the add button, a new subform is added. I, however, don't want to show this 'Add' button in the subsequent forms. I want to show it in the 1st form only. Also, the user can only add max 3 forms. Thus, as the form number reaches 3, I want to disable/hide the 'Add' button.Is there a way to do that? Could someone show me how?Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you, Niall. the code works like a charm now. Actually, when I call the script, I have to pass in _myForm. Yeah, not sure why I don't need to use instanceManager as stated in adobe sample code.

While this form may appear to be working, some elements may not function correctly or may not appear at all."Is there a way to make the form be compatible with older adobe versions?Thanks.

Hi, Thank you. It looks like this only validate when I click on the field without entering/selecting then move on. Is there a way I can validate the field in a way that if I have field 1/dropdown1, then field 2/dropdown 2. If I click on field 2, there is a message popup saying that 'field 1/dropdown 1 can't be empty. Please make your selection before move on'.Thanks.

I found the answer. The parent form must be set to flow. Then, I can set subform to either flow or positioned before setting Pagination After.

Hello,I am new to adobe livecycle. I am trying to create a form. This form has checkbox a, b, and c. If user checks a, section A will load, if user checks b, section B will load, and so on.

Which means if I hide section A but show section B, section B will float up to occupy section A. If I show section A, section B will float down so that section A c...
