Hi Bruce, thank you for your comments. Obviously, it was just a problem of the hierarchy structure. As you suggested, I moved all the elements off the Masterpage and finally everything is saving as intended now. I had realized that the page was kind of slow. Unchecking the “embed” option as you suggested will help to speed it up a little. Later on, I’ll find out how to place those repeated toggle buttons on a table structure. Once again, thank you for your time. I appreciate your patience very m...

Hi Bruce, thank you for your speedy reply. I tested the form you posted, your toggle button states save perfectly, mine won't. I am trying to find a way to post a sample of my form for review, but there seems to be no way to upload it. My form is not online, so I cannot send a link. Any suggestions?

Hi, thank you for your reply. No, I did not knowingly configure anything that runs when I reopen the document. Where would I have to look for it, just in case? You gave me the same attachment already in the previous thread custom checkbox or button Everything is configured accordingly and the toggle buttons work as intended. However, after saving the file with extended Reader rights, the buttons will not retain their state when I save and reopen my work. Which means, I need to manually set every...

Hi again. I have been trying out different settings in the meantime, none of which seem to work for that purpose. So I wanted to get back to you and ask, if you could give me details about how to add a "hidden field", as you suggested. I suppose, it needs to be on the same subform as each row of toggle buttons. Is this correct? Can it be done for the complete row at a time, or would I need a hidden field for every single button? Which would be the correct syntax targeting the button states "up" ...

Yes, I checked this before, it has been on "Automatically" all the time. Is it possible that some adjustments need to be made when I reopen the file in Acrobat, before I save it with extended Reader rights? I also tried to apply the data binding to the toggle buttons and / or their subform container, but it won't work.

Hi Bruce, sorry, but I need to get back to you with one more question: I fixed the data binding for all the fields, so they seem to save correctly now. However, I still could not find out how to save the current visible up- or down-states of the toggle buttons, too. Could you give me an idea how to configure that? Thanks in advance.

Hi Bruce, thank you for the speedy solution. Since I had never modified the binding, I was not aware that it was set to "no binding" from the beginning. I just tested it on one of the fields, and it works perfectly now! Once again I appreciate your assistance. Good job! Have a nice day!

Hi again and sorry for bothering you once more. There is no data binding configured in the LC document properties. I shared the file on several different pcs for testing, but the problem is the same on all of them. It should be compatible with Adobe Reader 9 or higher. I tested with Adobe Reader version X and XI, it says that data typed in can be saved, but it won't do it. So I am kinda stuck with it again. I would appreciate your continued feedback. Thanks.

Hi, I created a Dynamic-XML form using LiveCycle Designer ES2, reopened the file in Acrobat X Pro and saved it with extended Reader rights, as this is common practice. The resulting pdf file correctly displays the green bar, confirming that data typed into this form can be saved. However, after saving and reopening the document it is empty again, no matter which pc and which version of Adobe Reader I am using. I also tried out the “distribute” workaround with the same result. Modifying the secur...

Hi Bruce, thank you again for your feedback. I could apply a series of actions to both reset buttons, targeting the path for the “up” state of each toggle button separately and setting its action to “make visible”. Unfortunately, this must be done one by one, which means some work to do, but at least I can reset the complete row of toggle buttons at one click now. Same procedure as for the subform reset applies also to the global reset button.All elements seem to be working now. I really appreci...

Hi Bruce, thanks again for your time. The selective field reset for the subform works perfectly now! However, I am still unable to reset the toggle buttons to the “up” state. I tried to add the up.presence code at the end of the click event of both the subform- and the global-reset buttons, but it won’t reset any of the toggle buttons. Is it possible that I need to add a separate reference to each “up” state which I want to reset to "visible"?

Bingo! Thank you so much, it is working now. There is just one little detail left: The reset button should be effective on these toggle buttons, too. Which means, when I click on reset, they all should switch back to the “up” state. Optionally, is there a way to apply the reset to the toggle buttons and all other elements selectively, only for this specific subform, without affecting the rest of the page?I have found the following syntax:var f1 = this.parent.somExpression + ".Seminar" + ","; var...

Hi again and thank you for your patience. I guess I am getting back on track now. The “flowable layout form” did not give me an option to insert a background graphic, but I could place the required image on a subform. I have now created the three objects (image-up, image-down, button), wrapped them in a separate subform and inserted a script object in it, based on the sample script you gave me initially. Testing the script returns no errors, but it won’t toggle the image button. I suppose, I wil...

Hi again and thank you for your time. I meanwhiles figured out that the "insert subform" option is not available when a form was created from a pdf file as a background graphic. It displays in the hierarchy as "topmostSubform" with no Master Page at all. However, when I create a new empty form without a background, the "insert subform" option is available, but this does not meet my requirements, since the background design is essential. So it seems that the toggle image button will not work for ...

Thank you for your suggestion, Bruce. Since I am a newbie to LC, I need to bother you once more. I was trying to create that subform, however, the option is greyed out on the insert menu and also on the objects library. Do you have an idea what might be causing that? Thank you for your patience.

Trying to generate a simple printable form, I have encountered the following problem: I need a square button with two alphabetic characters, which can either be made visible / invisible or highlighted on mouse click. Is it possible to modify a checkbox by using a certain script, so that the checkmark or cross changes into two alphabetic characters? Another option would be to create an image button which shows the two characters and make it visible / invisible on mouse click, so that the backgrou...
