We tell all of our customers that official Adobe products are required to view and use the forms correctly. We cannot guarantee that the forms will work as expected otherwise. We have had a LOT of issues with customers opening (or trying to open) the forms outside of Adobe, and they never work quite right. Mind you, we use dynamic forms almost exclusively.

Yeah, unfortunately, I only know of selecting each item in the drop down and deleting it individually as well. Which is... incredibly annoying. If you ever find out how to delete more than one at a time, let me know.

You have to be very exact with referencing the fields, or the formulas will not work. If you renamed the fields from their default values, then you need reference them as you named them.Here is an example of my hierarchy, named as you explained:In this case, the scripting on the Total field will look like this:this.rawValue = (Row1.A1.rawValue * 1) + (Row2.B1.rawValue * 1) + (Row3.C1.rawValue * 1) + (Row4.D1.rawValue * 1);So that when I switch over to preview, it behaves properly:

No. The caption of the field can be whatever you want; the same or different. It does not matter.

Okay, I actually had to create a table and try this out.The Total field needs to be a numeric or decimal field, and when you click the patterns button, click both checkboxes to allow empty and allow zero.Then, I had to multiply each of the values by 1, to force the field to look at them as a number, rather than a string. So, my code looked like this (again, using Javascript):this.rawValue = (Row1.Cell2.rawValue * 1) + (Row2.Cell2.rawValue * 1) + (Row3.Cell2.rawValue * 1) + (Row4.Cell2.rawValue *...

Sounds like perhaps the fields have the same name in the hierarchy. And perhaps the data binding is set to global. The fields should all have unique names unless you want the data to repeat, and the binding should be set to "use field name."

There isn't really an "easy" way of doing this. First, you will want to select your drop down box, go to the bindings window, and select "Specify Item Values" Make each of the values the value that you want to be added.Next, in your total field at the bottom of the column, you will want to add a script on the calculate event. Make sure that Javascript has been selected and not formcalc.Now, you will want to add something like: this.rawValue = Row1.Cell2.rawValue + Row2.Cell2.rawValue + Row3.Cell...

Changing it from "Go to Page" to "Go to Content Area" didn't make a difference. No change.

Yes, I am using the Pageination tab. Originally, I had the overflow set by the page itself. Since I have been having quirky behavior, I then set the overflow individually per subform. Referencing the picture I posted above,Subform P1A Overflow is set "Go to Page M3"Subform P1B Overflow is set "Go to Page M3"Subform P1C Place is set to "Top of Content Area C1B" and Overflow is set to "None"

I would recommend using checkboxes instead of radio buttons for things like this. They act a little less quirky, and it's easy to set them to uncheck the other boxes as needed.Try this script on the change event (javascript):if (this.rawValue == "1") { //if the checkbox is checked AssemblyNu-1.mandatory = "error"; //make field mandatory OtherCheckbox.rawValue = "0"; //uncheck other checkbox} else { //if the checkbox is not checked AssemblyNu-1.mandatory = ""; //field is not mandatory}

I am having difficulty with the way a form wraps content. I have a redesigned form that the customer is satisfied with. However, the customer does not want the approval signature section at the bottom of page 1 to wrap onto subsequent pages when the content above that wraps. The approval section needs to stay static, while the rest of the page wraps to the next. My first thought is to have that section on the first master page... except that you can't have signature fields on a master page. So m...

Very sorry, as my French is not good. I am using Google Translate to try to understand/answer your questions. Are you saying that you cannot open the form at all in Adobe Reader 9+ or that you simply cannot save it? You will have to go into the form properties in Livecycle to verify that it is being saved for the correct version. In addition, you cannot save the forms in Reader without having the form Reader Extended first.----------------Très désolé, car mon français n'est pas bon. J'utilise Go...

The code above does not seem to work. I have tried to use it on a form, and while it does return a number, it is not the correct number. When I enter 1/1/13, it should return 001 or at least 1--Currently it is returning 92, which is not correct at all.

Agree with Jono. You have to purchase a separate PDF app that is capable of opening PDF Forms--the built-in program does not work.

The built-in adobe reader on the iPad? I haven't used the iPad in a while, but at the time that I did, I had to install a different PDF app to be able to open the fillable PDFs made in Livecycle. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the app; sorry.

Hm. You could program a single button and as long as the commands are in order, it should execute correctly. Try making it visible, then printing. Funny, because I actually tested this on a form that I brought up before posting, and it was working just fine. If you'd like, I can message you my email address and you can try sending the form to me to look at.

Click on the Page itself. Set the default presence to hidden.While that page is still selected, under the prePrint event, add: Page2.presence = "visible";Then, under the postPrint event, add:Page2.presence = "hidden";

Maybe check your version. The app you are using to open the pdf on the iPad may not support the version it was saven in/as.

This... didn't work for me. Creating a button that usesImageField1.rotate = "90"; rotates the FIELD, but not the image contained inside. So it rotates fine, but it doesn't resize the content. I can see this making somewhat of a mess in flowable content forms, too.Adding xfa.layout.relayout();messes it up. I'm not sure what it's doing, or how, but it pushed my picture way off-page somehow. You can see just the edge of the picture going off the page:

Make certain your main "page" subform Flow is set to positioned to start with.Now wrap your content in subforms. You may have several subforms from doing this. For instance, let's say I have a header section where I'm asking for a persons name, address and phone number and I have all of these fields lined up side by side. Then I have a large comments field underneath which I want to expand. Under that, I have more smaller fields and then another expanding field. Based on that type of form, I'm g...

Supposing that your list is a drop down list, you could put a script like the following on the exit event of List A. (very approximate, since I don't know any of your field names)switch (this.rawValue){case "A1": ListB.rawValue = "B1"; break;case "A2": ListB.rawValue = "B2"; break;}Obviously, you'll want to replace "ListB" with the name of your field, and possibly the references to it (ie. TableName.RowName.FieldName) and fill in more case statements all the way to A10 if that's what you need. I...

Have you tried putting parenthesis around your second condition? (this.parent.parent.instanceManager.count -1) Or even assign it to a variable and test it that way. It looks like your if statement is always returning true, so the test is not correct. I would start with the parenthesis.

I need a script to let me know if any other documents/pictures/etc. are attached to the form. I have a user who wants a message to appear "This form has items attached!" if anyone attaches documents to it. This way if they happen to not have the attachment window open, there is a visual telling them to check it. I tried to do it simply, but it doesn't seem to be working at all. I created a blank text input field, and put the following on the calculate event:var myDoc = event.target;var d = myDoc...

Ah, but wait. ImageField1.rotate = "90"; rotates the FIELD itself, not the contents of the field. Right? So it wouldn't resize. In addition, it could be MESSY when you're dealing with flowed forms. So we should see about a way of taking the CONTENTS of the imagefield and rotating those. Any ideas? I tried a simple ImageField1.rawValue.rotate = "90"; and it didn't work at all.

Ah, pguerett, this is probably exactly the TYPE of thing the user is looking for. I just tested it out. However, I see two problems with it. 1) The button only works once. So if you click it to rotate and then decide you liked it the other way, if you click the button again it does nothing.2) It doesn't resize the image. If I insert a "Landscape oriented" picture it resizes it to be proportional to the size of the portrait oriented field. Click the button to rotate it 90 degrees. It rotates the ...

Also, if you have this code on a drop down box, you will want to change it to be on the EXIT event instead of the change event. For drop down boxes it only works on the exit event; the value isn't "changed" until you exit the field.

Maybe tryif (RanddrpdwnList1.rawValue == 25) { this.rawValue = fieldName.rawValue.toUpperCase();}I don't know the field name for the data you are trying to convert, so you'll have to fill that in yourself.

I would definitely check the height of your subforms and verify that they are within the content area of your Page 1 Master content area. If it's even the tiniest bit larger, it will create another "blank" page in between.The other thing I would verify is HOW you have your master pages set. For instance, you can place your first page on the first master page by selecting the page, Object Palette, Pagination tab, Place, Top of Page, then select your master page. Then to get that page to flow onto...

Figured it out. Two simple problems.First, I wasn't using the && for and in my if statement. Second, I forgot to put .rawValue on something. So the corrected code looks like this:if (trainingCB.rawValue == "1" && (this.rawValue == "" || this.rawValue == null)) { xfa.host.messageBox("Training agenda required");}
