Unfortunately I can't set the fields to white because they are within a flowed subform. I need them to be hidden so that they do not take up space and affect form layout. Otherwise, that would likely work.

I discovered a dirty workaround that seems to solve the problem. I added several numeric fields that are hidden and in the postSign and the Change event of each signature field, I evaluate whether a signature was applied or removed and change the value of the numeric field to either a 0 or a 1. Then, instead of checking the signature fields for a signature, I check against the value of the hidden numeric field. This is a poor workaround, and if anyone is able to help me figure out how to actuall...

The fields are supposed to be hidden when the form is opened, but can be "added" (made visible) by the user to allow for additional signatures. I use hidden fields rather than a simple Add Instance because of data binding issues.I tried modifying the script to make the fields visible, fire the validation, and then hidden again, but for some reason it would either not work or it would make them visible after the first change and then hidden only if the field was changed again. Also, the code has ...

I am trying to use the signatureValidate() function to check if any signature fields are signed. I am doing this because I need to have the signature fields lock the form manually so that a specific department can make changes after signatures have been applied (via a password field). I got the signature fields to lock the form and I can unlock everything with a password dialog. However, I am trying to add some code to the Change event so that if a user clears their signature and no other signat...

So I have a form with signature fields that, when signed, lock all fields in the form. I want to add a button in my form that will allow specific users to unlock form fields that have been locked by the signatures so that changes can be made after the signatures have been applied, without removing the signatures.I tried creating a button that would prompt users for a password, and if they entered the correct password it would unlock the fields. This works when a field is locked in any other inst...

I have built a table with a repeatable table section so that users can add additional sections to the table as needed. In one of the rows, I want to have a button that will hide a specific row in the previous instance of the table section. Is there a way to specifically identify the previous section? I have no idea how I would write that in Javascript.Thanks for any help that you can offer.

Hi all,I have encountered an issue with one of my expandable text fields. When the end of the text field has just one or two lines that break across the page, the resulting text on page 2 appears outside the boundaries of the text field. In addition, when I enter (click in) the portion of the field on page two, the field text will appear at the top of the first page over all of my other fields. Has anyone encountered this issue before, and is there a fix? I am using LiveCycle Designer ES2 to cre...

I am trying to bind the data between two fields that are both repeatable. Basically, I have a table with a repeatable row, and in this row the user will enter a part name and a part number and various other information. They will also specify wither the part is "New" or "Change." For each part that is marked as "Change," I add an instance to a repeatable table on another page of the form (this table is only present for parts marked as "Change," so if I have five rows in the first table and only ...

Thank you Magus. This helped a lot. For those who are interested, the code I had in the click event of the Remove Row button in table 1 was:for (i = 0; i < Table_1._Row1.count; i++) { if (this.parent.parent.index === i) { this.resolveNode('form1.Subform1.Simple_disposition_table.Table_2._Row1').removeInstance(i); }} this.resolveNode('form1.Subform1.Large_sig_disposition_table.Table_1._Row1').removeInstance(this.parent.parent.index);

Hi all,I have two tables that each have repeatable rows. The two tables should display almost the same information in each instance of the row (I managed to code in a way to bind the values in specific instances of the rows). However, I have added a button within the repeatable row that allows the user to remove the current instance of the row, so that if they look back and realize they don't need a row, they can take it directly out of the table. However, I cannot seem to have the button remove...

Hi all,I have a form with two tables. The table on the first page has a repeatable row with a dropdown that indicates whether a part is "New" or "Change". In a subform on the second page, I have a number of tables equal to the max # of instances of the row in table 1, all set to Hidden. When the user opens the form, all they see is the first table on the first page. When the dropdown in the first table is set to "Change," I want to evaluate what the parent row instance is and then show the corre...

Hi all,I need to be able to bind multiple sets of text-fields together so that each set always has the same value. The idea is that I have a table where a user enters values such as a product name, and then on another page, where they enter information about the product, there is a header with the product name that is bound to the first text-field so the user does not have to enter information twice. The problem is that both instances of the text-field are repeatable. I have them each set in a t...

Hi all,I have a repeatable subform that has a zero instance count (starts at zero and can be removed completely) and I have two buttons, one to add instances and one to remove instances. I would like to only show the Remove Instance button when the count is greater than zero (this way the user only sees an Add button when there nothing there, and by adding the 1st instance of the field they will get the remove button which will hide again when the instance count is down to zero).Is there a way t...

Thank you for your help. I have had to learn Javascript myself, so I am not as proficient as I could be. I knew that it should be possible to use count - 1 to specify the last row instance, but I didn't think (or know how) to use a variable to define this. Thank you for your help.

Hi all,I have a problem with my textfields in Livecycle. My goal is to have a text field of a certain size that can grow to accommodate more text or shrink to fit text that does not take up the full space that the text field offers. I set my text field height to Expand to Fit and wrote a javascript statement to minimize the size of the text field to fit any text entered. The code is as follows and is in the exit event event of the field:if ((this.resolveNode("$").rawValue != null && this.resolve...

Try placing the script in the enter and exit events. I used the enter event to show the border always so that when users enter the field they can see the boundaries. For this, I just used: this.resolveNode("$").border.presence = "visible";Then in the exit event I placed the following codes to evaluate whether the field was null and show or hide the border (the exit event works for this because the code only affects the object when it is changed and exited). Setting the height to null reduces the...

I will try this and let you know if it works.I went through the form and found that one of my tables was causing the issue. I changed the data-binding for the table from Use Name to No Data Binding and the subform no longer repeats itself when saved as a reader enabled form. I am incredibly glad that this worked (this form literally has more than 10,000 lines of Javascript) but I don't understand what the issue was. I have several other tables within the subform that are exact duplicates and all...

However, when I use Adobe Acrobat to save the form as Reader Extended PDF>Enable Additional Features it screws up the form so that when it is opened in Reader there are two instances of my subform instead of just one. To make it worse, every time the form is saved and re-opened it adds a new instance of the repeatable subform.Does anyone...

Hi All,I have a problem with my digital signature fields. Whenever the user digitally signs the form, there is a message that says that the form is "Signed and all signatures are valid, but with unsigned changes after the last signature". When I open the signature panel (in Adobe Reader or in the Preview PDF tab of Livecycle) the form indicates that a bunch of fields located on the Master Page were deleted and then added (see below). Does anyone know what is causing this or how to fix it?

Hi Magus069,Your code helped me to specify that columns are added to every instance of Row1, but I still haven't been able to figure out how to dynamically resize the columns to fit the page so that the width of each column is equal to the total number of columns divided by 7.5 (the width of my form). Any ideas on how to do this?
