The Adobe company is such a joke. I have the same problem as above with ES4. Good riddance!

Magus069 thanks for your reply. But I don't understand what you mean by adding the "ur removeInstance" to the end of the code. Could you expound or point me to a url that explains this idea?

I have created a LiveCycle document that has a repeatable subform as url linked below. The form will not let me call a Script Object after removing an instance at index[0]. Regardless of the number of instances remaining. I use a script object to show and hide buttons. Adding an instance is not a problem. What to do?Script on Delete Subform Button (Error):xfa.form.recalculate(1);this.resolveNode('fifteenSubform._CorrectiveActionWrapper').removeInstance(this.parent.index);if (xfa.host.version < �...

I have created an Adobe Livecycle ES4 form with expandable textfields. Almost all works fine, except for 1 problem. When the user has a textfield filled with pages of content (words) that run a number of pages (e.g. 4 pages) the form will snap-back to page 1. When the user clicks into the textfield (e.g. page 3) to edit a word or sentence on page 3, the document will send them back to the original page that the textfield started on (e.g. page 1). This snap-back could be any number of pages previ...

I created a Livecycle form months ago that has worked perfectly until the last few days. When I made some subtle non-script changes the Ghost Text I created months ago stopped working correctly upon enabling the form for Adobe Reader. When I preview the form in Livecycle preview mode the Ghost Text appears in grey and italics as scripted and correctly. However upon saving as a Reader enabled file, the Ghost text initializes as black text instead of the grey Ghost text look. Puzzling. Any ideas o...

the variable 'part" needs a value. Add the script:part = this.rawValueSOnineThreenine.fxnineThreenine(part);to the exit event of dropDownlist2. Otherwise the variable "part" gives you a console error message of [object XFAObject]

I attached a sample pdf to show the problem I am having. I created a text field that is supposed to have bullet points. However bullet points are not selectable in the "paragraph" toolbar of Livecycle. Screen shot attached. Althought it looks like the button is selectable, nothing happens when I click on the button. The numerical bullet button acts in the same manner. What am I missing here? All I want is the user to enter their text into a text field such as: Afghanistan Australia Bangladesh Ca...

I would start by renaming your fields to remove the # sign in the name of the form fields. form1.#subform[0].#variables[0].asaScript would become somthing like form1.presubform.tempVariables.asaScirptI am not certain but in the past I have encountered problems in LiveCycle with functions that contain capitalizations in the function name. You might try changing the name to all lower case. I'm not completely certain this is illegal however in function naming. Typically the console error "Not a fun...

Bruce thank you for helping me get around that javascript "barricade". Thank you for the reminders on calling functions from Script Objects. Yes I use the console often.The reason I used .value instead of .rawValue was due to certain variables being Global Variables. I beleive you call them differently than a textfield. Thanks again for your help. Much appreciated. I updated my form for others to use as an example.https://workspaces.acrobat.com/?d=UvVdbT2TbKRr4xexeaVijw

I want to write a javascript to search a textfield for a given value say "104B-XX-XXX" the "X"s represent any numbers between 0-9. If the textfield contains this value (e.g. 104B-38-293) I would like to set a global variable value to equal this 104B-38-293. I thought a RegExp would be the correct method to use for this situation, however I am having trouble understanding how to apply the RegExp to the entire textfield and obtain the value (104B-38-293).Would someone please explain how I search t...

The below script allows me to place a date from mm-dd-yyyy format e.g. 05-17-2004 into Month Day, Year format, e.g. May 17, 2004. I used a Script Object function to convert the date. However how do I run the function inside the textfield.rawValue = without the script giving me an "undefined". //Letter References Contentform1.Textfield.rawValue = "(a) Your previous Letter, RA-XX dated " + SOdateConverter.fxdateconverter(form1.Submissiondate.rawValue,LONGDATE) + LONGDATE.value + "\n\n" + "(b) GPA ...

xfa.event.cancelAction = 1Looking for a way to link this cancelAction with the first signature dialogue box that pops up. If the user selects "cancel" I don't want the postSign event to fire. In the javascript reference below is "event" to be replaced by "postSign"? meaning xfa.postSign.cancelAction = 1;http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/designerHelp/index.htm?content=001046.html

Would inserting an "if else" statement prevent the preSign or postSign code from firing if the user selects "Cancel" on the dialogue box. Technically I beleive the "preSign" event has already fired when the user reaches this dialogue box. Something likeform1.Page1.Document.SigSubform.SignatureField1::preSign - (JavaScript, client)if (xfa.event.cancelAction == true){ xfa.event.cancelAction == true}else{//preSign or postSign javascirptsuch as presence, trust function saves etc}

The signature field on my pdf form continues to fire even when the person signing selects "Cancel" on the dialogue box first to appear. All code in the preSign/postSign events fire properly if the user wants to sign the document. However if the user doesn't want to sign I need to prevent the postSign event from firing. Any ideas?Using:Livecycle ES 3Adobe 11 or XII have researched and found the following discussions but have yet to find an answer. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/designe...

Bruce,I tried your ideas, but didn't get them to work. I finally realized I wasn't being specific enough for what the textfield1 should equal. I also changed the function variable name since it was the same as the global variable "EMAILADDRESS". Thank you for your help. The document works correctly now.Greghttps://workspaces.acrobat.com/?d=O6IRlhfajI8VtMkb*ROtxQ

This form uses a script object to hold a function that runs the email verification code. I haven't yet figured out why the the value of EMAILADDRESS is undefined. I want the textfield1 to equal empty (not the word, but a blank space) if the email address doesn't match "@testdomain.com". Any ideas? Thanks.https://workspaces.acrobat.com/?d=wZR1nYuqo*IRbQEypEsbowGreg

I use my Livecycle form to collect information from the user and then process the data into an Excel spreadsheet. There are approxiamately 200 fields on this form and only about 10 fields really need to be processed for data. If I turn off data binding for the remaining 190 fields will this cause any side effects (e.g. script not running properly)? I will leave data binding to "Global" for fields that need information from another field, but I see no reason to have Excel filled with 200 cells of...

I don't clearly understand what you are asking however I will try to help. You can change a textfield value using scripts such as posted below. Can you post your form on workspaces for us to look at and understand the exact question? Hope this helps or gets you pointed in the right direction.Here are some ideas. Choose an event based on when you would like this script to fire. To open the script editor press: CTRL +SHIFT + F5this.rawValue = form1.subformname.table1.textfield1.rawValue;orthis.raw...

Move your javascript files, trust functions or whatever you need to:C:\Users\JoeUser\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\Privileged\11.0\JavaScriptsMost likely you will have to create a new folder after "Privleged" titled "11.0"Then create a folder after "11.0" titled "JavaScripts"Move your .js files into the newly created JavaScripts folder
