LiveCycle has been replaced by Adobe Experience Manger which can convert both the PDF and XML (LiveCycle) forms into the newer format. One of the largest creators of LiveCycle forms, http://www.irs.gov, was still creating forms in March 2018. I expect that Experience Form Manager is using HTML5 and directed at enterprise users since it is sold on a contact basis only.

Are "Acceopt" and "Reject" variable names or string values?If string values, you need to place quotation marks around the words.

If using the digitally sign feature of Acrobat/Reader, there is a special digital certificate that is attached to the PDF that includes a lot of information as when the PDF form was signed and information to tell if the form has been changed and the ability to "roll back" the form to a state prior to the signature being applied.Fill and sign is a different product for applying a signature to the PDF.Use of the digital certificate can be used to validate legal or business forms internationally an...

Do you have any skill in programming JavaScript or other language? Excel formulas is not coding. To program Excel you need to use VBA.Will your form be used by Reader?Acrobat does not support dynamic forms. LiveCycle is much better at performing dynamic form tasks like adding rows to a table and adjusting for the added content.

LiveCycle Designer uses the same JavaScript engine that Acrobat and Reader does when the LiveCycle form is in the PDF format. So as noted in the Acrobat JavaScript form, the JavaScript engine and capabilities. As explained in the Acrobat JavaScript forum, the JavaScript used in Acrobat or Reader is "sandboxed" or very will isolated from your computer's JavaScript program. This has been done to protect users of Acrobat or Reader form the possibility of running malicious code.It might be possible ...

The code for the function "standardDeviation" is placed in a document level JavaScript object. This is a user written function.The documentation under Help in LiveCycle has documentation on how to do this and convert the JavaScript for the field to FormCalc or JavaScript.

There are way to work around some of these issues with more advance programing.One can place the values to process into an array, use a filter to remove unwanted items from the array and use a call back function to sum the array.

You need to use the commands for conditional code execution. You can use the JavaScript "if" statement or the FormCalc "if" statement. Note that the syntax for the "if" statement have a different syntax.The "Scripting Reference" under LiveCycle's Help menu bar item has more information about the FormCalc statements.Since this is custom scripting you need establish the link to the field objects and then use the "value" property to get the user input for the field.

Will you allow your users to save a partially completed form and come back at a later time?You add alerts or display of warning fields on the form if the use tries to print the form before it is complete or you do not allow submission.There are far too many armatures that are out in the wild creating poorly designed forms.

Carefully think about the user and the experience this is going to be for the user. You will lock your user into the form form field with no other action being allowed no matter what. Not a very good idea. You might consider a warning message and highlighting the field or changing the text color to highlight the error.If there are a limited number of countries, you might consider a drop down box with the acceptable choices.

Click on the field that will be using the leading zeros.Make sure this field is set to Numeric Field (Object Palette - Field tab - Type:)On the same Field tab is a button that reads "Patterns..." click on the arrowClick "Display" and in the "Pattern:" field type "num{99999}" (this will give you a five digit input (45=00045) adjust the number of 9's according to your need.Do not include the quotation marks for the text to enter.

You need to use the 'if' statement to see if a date has been entered for both dates and then perform the calculation or clear the field.var oneDay = 24*60*60*1000;if(rentalbegin.rawValue != "" & rentalend.rawValue != "") { var firstDate = new Date(rentalbegin.rawValue); var secondDate = new Date(rentalend.rawValue); Math.abs((firstDate.getTime() - secondDate.getTime())/(oneDay));} else {"";}You might find FormCalc an easier language to perform this calculation as the 'Date2Num' function returns ...

Are you creating your form in Acrobat or LiveCycle Designer. A little hare to tell with all of your posts. For Acrobat forms:You can get a lot of different information from the date object by changing the format string for the 'util.printd' method. See the reference George Johnson links to for the format string values that can change the displayed value.// get new Date objectvar d = new Date();// format to h:MM ttvar sDate = util.printd("h:MM tt", d);// insert date into form fieldthis.getField("...

You are using Acrobat Form Tool code, so unless you are making your form with Acrobat, I would use the syntax and languages of LiveCycle Designer.Look in the scripting reference for the 'Sum' function and examples of how to write equations in LiveCycle Designer. The 'Scripting Reference' is under LiveCycle Designer's "Help" menu option.

LiveCycle Designer and Acrobat AcroForms use two very different approaches to form design. LiveCycle Designer is the successor to JetForms that was acquired by Adobe to allow for the use of XML forms. And there is limited commonality between the 2 products for form design. Further, users need version 5.01 of Acrobat or Reader to use forms created by LiveCycle Designer.Forms created in LiveCycle Designer need to be edited in LiveCycle Designer and forms created in Acrobat should be edited in Acro...

You have to manually add fields or use "automatic form field recognition".If you use Open Office Org Writer, you can create the form in Wirter and add various fields, and then "Export as PDF" and the form fields and optional values will be present in a PDF form.

Adobe has discouraged having both Reader and Acrobat installed on the same system because of this problem. Each product want to be the default appliction for opening a PDF document. You might be able to modify the preferences in each application and set the option for IE intergration and primary PDF appliction. You also might have to edit the Registry entries for these applications, but an update may reset them.

As noted you can use the pre-print and pre-save feature to alert a user about an incomplete form. You can also have a hidden form field become visible indicating the form is incomplete or use a watermak.You can not prevent the print or save action, but can mark the form before printing or saving.

It is clearly for Acrobat's AcroForms and not LiveCycle Designer forms. It is a document level user defined JavaScript funciton. You call the function with the start time and end time fields. The function then uses the field names to get the field values and convert those strings to the value of the JavaScript'x date time object. For each date time object a second user function is called to round the values to the nearest 15 minutes, quarter hour.You do not have the code for the second user defi...
