Hi,I know this may not be a proper question in this forum, but it is a PDF form related issue. I need some help in solving my problem in the following scenario:I have a web app processing PDF files. I have PDF fillable forms generated by Lifecycle. User downloads it from my web app, fills out it and sends it back via my web app (upload). I need to parse the form to XML file, then my existing web service will process XML files and save it to database. Previous we used an Email Submit Button and u...

Hi Ratnesh,Thanks so much for the help. Yes, the preSave does get the event here. Then I have another question related to it: how to STOP saving process after I find the form is invalid?In my "Save Form" button click event, I do something like following: if (isValidForm()) {//set the timestamp...app.execMenuItem("SaveAs");}else{// run code to show the invlid form field...}This works as expected: no invalid file will be saved.While in the preSave event, I removed the app.execMenuItem("SaveAs"); s...

Hi,I created a form, in LifeCycle Designer, with a "Save Form" button which has validation rules in it. However, if I click the File menu and select a save method (Save, Save as, Save As Other), I can save the file and bypass the validation rules, which is not what I want.Is there a way that I can catch the "save" event in the code behind when it is fired so that I can enforce my validation rules on the form, as I do in the "Save Form" button?ThanksSam

Hi,I have created some fillable PDF files using Adobe LiveCycle Designer and used Adobe Acrobat Pro XI to save it as Reader Extended PDF > Enable More Tools (includes form fill-in and save)…The form includes image, text field, check box, radio button, table and other controls, as well as java scripts behind. The files are from 1 to 3 MB in size. I tried Reduced Size PDF and Optimized PDF, but I got a message: “This PDF document contains an Adobe XML form. Such files cannot be optimized.” My ques...

Radzmar,Thanks for the reply. Hmm, it seems very interesting. Here is my situation:I have a form with multiple pages (subforms). Each page contains a content table. A content table contains some rows. Each row contains a radiobutton group and a checkbox. Something like: ...formPage[0].contentTable.questionRow[0].formAnswer.SKIPCheckbox_01_01 (Checkbox name)formPage[0].contentTable.questionRow[1].formAnswer.SKIPCheckbox_01_02 (Checkbox name)...The checkbox name changes with the page and table row...

Hi,I created some PDF fillable forms with LifeCycle designer and saved them as Reader Extended PDF. I want to check their accessibility. By opening the "Accessibility Tool pane" from the Acrobat XI Pro, all the check options are disabled, except Steup Assistant. Can those fillable forms be checked by Accessibility Checker? If so, how? Or can they be checked with LifeCycle Designer?ThanksSam

Hi,I created a PDF form with some radiobuttons in group and checkboxes.

I just know how to hide the controls in th...

I think not. I found we have to use a button on top of the image to make it seem like an image is clicked.

Hi,I have a situation that there are multiple selections/answers for a question and only one selection is permitted (mutually exclusive selection) on the form. I used radiobuttons group to get the user input, which works fine. The issue is once the radiobutton in the group is selected, the group of radiobuttons can not be cleared. I need a mutually exclusive selection control with a function to clear the previous selections. I am new and I think this issue must have been discussed before but I c...

Hi Radzmar,Great! This is the regular expression I am looking for. So now I can have my three validation rules in one: e.g. alphanumeric, 8 characters, and the space checks, except null check.ThanksSam

Hi Bruce,Thanks for the reply. This is better than having a separate function to check the size of the string.Any suggestion to check the space for requirement 4?Appreciations also go to the recommended Regular Expression site. You are the man!ThanksSam
