Going back to this question. This works fine but there is one section on my form that if I name them all the same, then I cannot select indivual check boxes because they will now all check. If the user answers N/a this works great as they all check off.If the user selects Yes. and fills out a couple fields. he needs to be able to n/a some of the other fields.I guess global is not the answer for this particular problem?

Its all working great now. I have applied it to the other sections as well and all is good so far. The only query I have is, is there something causing the borders to disappear when you deselect the checkbox? If i check it and then uncheck it, the fields have some or no border sides...I know in the panels they have the "sunken" default box.Any thoughts.Your efforts so far have been so helpful

Hi Paul.Im sending you back the form through your gmail address.I also tried making the grey out switch on section 5.2, first part labeled Hardware. I put the script under the checkbox and entered the lines for the two text fields. But sadly its not working for me. I guess its a "me" error, but not sure where I went wrong.

I open as a regular pdf and then check the NA box. The fields grey out but dont lock down. I should not be able to type and change text in those fields correct? As I can right now.Sorry

Hi Paul.Thanks for sending the form with the fields only greyed. That is just what I needed. I did notice there is a tag for access = read-only however you can still enter info into the fields. Was this meant to happen? It would be good to have them read-only if possible. From a compliance persepective these fields still have to be visible but it saves confusion this way.I really appreciate your effort with me on this.Stephanie.

Hi Paul.Thank you again for sending the form. I hope you dont mind if I just ask if you could tell me how to narrow it down to just the fields rather than the whole section being grey. If its a messy process for a newbie like me then do feel free to say so.all answers are appreciated,

Thank you Paul. I have given the form for you to take a look at. You will see there are many sections. If you look at section 7.2, there is an N/a box that the user could select. All the subsections all the way down to 7.2.4 could be greyed out and the comments n/a box could be automatically checked. Another example is section named Attachement 1. If the user selected No, then all the n/a boxes could be auto checked.Many, many thanks.Stephanie.

Thanks for the reply. What do I have to do to create the trigger? Is there something simple I can do from the palettes or do I have to script this?Im not familiar with scripting. Is it a mammoth task?

Hello, again.I have a form which the user can enter info in text fields or check a checkbox to N/A the whole section. I would like to grey out the relevant text fields if the user chooses to N/A the section. I would also like to have other N/A check boxes automatically crossed if the user checks the main n/a box. There are many of these on the form so hoping it would be fairly simple and straigtforward?Your help, as always, is very much appreciated.Stephanie

I recently got a great reply for solving my question on how to disengage fields when a checkbox is selected - thank you very much! As this form I have can have many fields, some mixed field types that can be disengaged under one checkbox. Do I have to call each of these out when I write the script? How could I do this simply? This form has many sections like this!Your help is much appreciated.

Firstly, thanks very much for taking the time to reply and sending the example. It really helped a great deal. Im not a scripting pro so I finally managed to get a little headway. Im not sure how to make the text field to be white initially. When opening the form, all my text fields are first grey. When I click it stays grey but loses two sides of its border, click again it goes white, click again it goes grey and uneditable. Im not sure what I did but I have matched the code and replaced the fi...

Hi,Having import issues, not sure if this is just something you just have to put up with.I converted a word doc into PDF as I dont have XP or Word 2003. The PDF does not read the word checkboxes as a checkbox, so therefore LiveCycle doesnt. As there are a LOT of checkboxes, is there anyway to avoid having to create each individual new checkbox via LiveCycle? Also why did headers not import over? The headers are blank in LC....I did a search for some info but found nothing.All help appreciated,St...

It appears as though its a problem with Reader, but Im yet to hear if this is consistent.Also, would there be a problem with digital signatures? We have contractors that roll on and off frequently, and therefore thier signatures are revoked...can this create problems for our forms?

I dont know if this is going to be a bit of a broad question, but we have some LiveCycle v8.0 developed forms which are distributed out to various people for completetion and sign-off. We have encountered an issue with one form that some people can and cant save. There seems to be no reasoning as some have the same version of Adobe Pro v8.0 on a variety of systems, be it Windows 2K or Vista. They are not able to save whether they have signed it or not. Those users also have managed to save other...
