I have a list of over 900 items, so I am trying to use a variable for the field value I need. I have given the SubstationName field the variable name sub. What is happening is the if statement works, and if the field is empty I get the alert. But it is also submitting. I need it to not submit unless the SubstationName field has a value.And a second part, can the same variable be used in the save path name? I would like to go down another level of folder for each substation chosen so that each PD...

Is was an Adobe Acrobat Window that said "Value of checkbox: 0". But I figured it out by looking at all my jscripts. I had some script from something I was trying to do that I never deleted, so that was causing the error.Thanks

I am getting an error window with this message when I open my LC form in Acrobat. It's a dynamic form with a lot of checkboxes and javascript happening, but I am not sure where this is coming from. Has anyone seen this before? Any thoughts on what could be causing it? Thinking the obvious is something in one of my scripts, just which one and why?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Gary

I have a follow-up to this. I have the table row reset working, but my issue is that if I say "no" when the reset dialog box comes up, it still resets the rows. How do I add to this to keep this from happening?

I am trying to get this to allow me to choose either a 5 digit number, or a 10 digit number. It works fine as is for the 5 digit number, but I can't figure out how to get the second expression for the 10 digit number. I've tried the | for an "or" expression. I know it is just the way I am setting it up, just can't seem to find anything online that shows me exactly the same thing as an example, and I've tried every combination I can think of.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanksvar r = new...

Kyle,There are three values in the drop-down that are comma delimited in the binding tab. The text chosen (Null### is never a choice, just a value) will split those values to populate three different fields. The auto populated field in question can have a value of Null###. But there are also values in that field that will not be Null### as a value. So when a value of Null### does populate the field, it would need to change to N/A. If it is a value that is not Null###, it will need to populate as...

That didn't do anything. Plus, since the field is empty until populated from the drop-down, wouldn't it need to go into the Change event? And the null values are all Null (the word not the expression) with 3 numbers (Null###). So it needs to test/search for the word "Null" and replace with N/A if it exists. If not I need the value to populate as-is, not be empty/null.

I am not 100% sure if this is possible. I have a field which auto populates from a choice made in a drop down menu. There are multiple values of "Nullxxx" (Null001, Null002, Null003, etc.), plus other values. I am looking to have this field value change to "N/A" rather than the value of Nullxxx, anytime it sees "Null". If it doesn't see Null, then I want the value to stay as it is imported.So I would assume something like, If the field value contains "Null", then change to N/A, Else do nothing. ...

I am using Action Builder to build a script for a number range for Latitude and Longitude from 0-59. If less than zero or more than 59 I want it to show a message box. The problem is that if you enter zero, it shows the message box instead of letting you enter zero. Below is the code it is generating, which looks correct to me. Any ideas as to why it won't let me enter a zero? Or maybe I should just use that code in Javascript and not through the Action Builder?Thanks in advance, Gary //+ GENERA...

I want to have the user enter their name as Last Name, First Name, with the comma. I need to be able to validate that there is a comma, figuring if there is not, they did not enter the name correctly and will give them a message saying such.I have found a few things, but they don't seem to be working. Plus not sure where it would go, exit, change, validate, etc.?I'm thinking something along the line of an e-mail validation, where it would check if there is text before and after the comma.Thanks,...

OK, that's what I was missing! That I needed the multiple columns to be copied and pasted from the clipboard. Thank you very much, hopefully it is now etched into my brain!

I already know how to populate a list, thanks though. This is about populating the VALUES as shown and stated above. If you have your text on the clipboard and you click the Specify Item Values box, it pastes tham all in, but it makes the values start at 1 and go to however many there are. I need it to paste as shown with the Text matching the Text in the drop down list, and the values I need in the Value column. Which are the comma delimited values for me to use to split them into different fie...

I did this before and I can't for the life of me remember how I did it. I need to be able to replace the text in the Value and Text areas (as shown below) with updated text. I don't think I did it using Data binding. Seems like I was able to use either an .xml or .csv file and copy and paste it and I got the result I needed.I am splitting the Value among multiple fields. I know this was not entered manually as there are about 5000 entries. Any help would be greatly appreciated!Thanks, Gary

I need to use this same code, and it is working like I need. The problem I am having is that now when I use the Submit button, I am getting a "Date validation failed" error message. I don't have any validation on this field, so any thoughts as to where it is coming from? I do have this code to validate other fields, which all work with no errors:if (form1.Tailboard.Supervisor.rawValue == null) xfa.host.messageBox("Choose a supervisor from the list.", "", 0); if (form1.Tailboard.Supervisor.rawVal...

Thanks Bruce, that is what I was looking for! I appreciate your time and patience.And in reference to your note, I noticed that it not only returns the first instance of the drop-down choice, but also the first instance in the bound values as well. From your statement, I am guessing there is no way around this? For the bound values I mean. Won't typically be an issue, but interested in knowing if I did need it if there was a way to fix that?Thanks again.

Hi Bruce, and thanks for your time.No, my drop-down list consists of single choices, not choices that are comma separated. I want the item values of these to be comma separated. Then I want the comma separated item values (3), so populate three different text fields. Just like the sample you gave me, except I need to use the binding tab item values to populate the text fields. I am still pretty new to javascript, so forgive my lack of knowledge.Drop-down would look like this:ABCWith item values ...

Hi Bruce, thanks but not quite. Sorry, guess I wasn't clear enough. I need to have a list of single choices in the drop-down, and pull three different values from the comma separated values in the binding tab, not from the text in the drop-down.

I am looking to do something very similar.I have a drop-down and need to split the Item Values, which have 3 choices separated by commas, to populate 3 different text fields. This is where I am having problems. Can't figure out how to access the values. I think it is close to what is here just modified somewhat. Any help will be greatly appreciated!Thank You, Gary

I have a Save button on my LCD form which is not working. I have the js code app.execMenuItem("Save"); on the click function. Should this be working? If I change it to Save As it works fine. Also the Save menu choice does work.

Nope, that's not it. Needs to be Hidden as opposed to Invisible, and doesn't with that either. The issue is why does the drop-down value have to be chosen twice instead of once to work?

I am trying to show/hide a table when a choice is made from a drop-down menu. It doesn't work until I make the same choice twice, then I get the expected result. The script is under Change and I have used it before successfully, albeit it has typically been using a check box. Is there an easy fix hopefully for this problem? Code below:if(this.rawValue == 2){form1.Page1.OrderSection.OrderItems.Blower.presence= "visible";}else{form1.Page1.OrderSection.OrderItems.Blower.presence= "hidden";}Thanks

Not sure why this is confusing, so I will try and really be specific.Yes, I know I can add a title in LC. That is not the problem. If you create a PDF file from another program, say FrameMaker, and you go into the properties of that PDF, you are able to go to the Description tab and enter a title. Then, if you go to the Initial View tab, under the Windows Options section, there is a Show drop-down menu with the choices of File Name and Document Title. If you choose Document Title, when you open ...

That does not give me what I need. I already have done that, and as I said, when you look at the PDF file, under Properties/Initial View/Windows Options, everything is grayed out, and it does not allow you to choose show by Document Title. That's what I need. So either I am missing where you set this in LC, or it can't be done. I need the Document Title to show up at the top of the window, not the file name.

I have noticed that the settings under Form Propeties in Livecycle do not have a Windows Option/Show Title as in Acrobat. I need the forms I am creating to show the title of the form, not the name of the file. I can't find that anywhere as a choice, and it won't let you change it in the PDF once it is in Acrobat. So is this possible and I am just missing it where it is?Thanks
