Hi -I have PDF 1.4 that started out in LifeCycle and as was flattened (using itext). I would like to open the PDF at a particular page location. I know the javascript to do this is something like xfa.host.currentPage = 4 but don't know how to do it dynamically by passing in an argument from an HTML page for example. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks, Doug

Hi -We are flattening the forms with XML data automatically. Then sending them to the users through email. So I don't think this will work. A button showing what needs to be finished before completing sounds like an interesting idea and when we do editable forms in phase 2 I will bring this up with the client.Doug

All -I would like to modify all of fields on a form background color in one script tied to a single event. The script would loop through all of the objects on a multipage form and modify the value of the background color based upon whether or not the field has content. I learned that I could change the background color in the "calculate event" and in the initialize event the xfa.host.numPages is always zero. I would much rather right one script to do this then modify a 30 page pdf and every text...

Could you add more detail. Obviously, I can inject the Javascript code into the forms as XML before processing but that sort of seems complicated. These are not separate pages or sub forms but separate xdp documents.Thanks, Doug

Hi -My boss and I working looking though the XFA specification and he noticed the ability to use aggregate functions like .length. But when ever I enter (schema path).length into designer it easies it. Can someone provide some guidence? I use an XSD external type binding with designer and using an external library to flatten the files (for now). I'm using the latest version of design.thanks, Doug

You need to nest two forms one the outer form being flowed and the inner form being positioned.Doug

Hi -I've searched the list and the web looking for an answer and can't find one. I'm trying to get a repeated item set to work with LiveCycle designer 11.0.0.2 evaluation license. I can create repeating elements when they are not nested but when I have a nested set of forms the "Repeat Subform for each Data Item" is greyed out. Is there any way to have nested repeated data and have it work? I'm using an XSD and XML data binding. Any ideas would be most helpful.thanks, Doug

If you move the form fields to the top of the subform you can make the form smaller.

Do I need any other products from Adobe to get Live Cycle designer to display xdp pages as HTML. I have apache tomcat installed on my box and that appears to not be enough? Do I need the Livecycle server which comes at significant cost?Doug

I have tried "If you have textfields at the same position (x) you can set the position reserve in the layout palette to be all the same" and it does not appear to give the horizontal alignment I'm looking for at the divider between the caption label and the value field for each element vertically. Can you provide more details?Doug

Not exactly, textfields are made up of a value and caption and there is a line in the GUI seperating the two. I would like to have that line be aligned vertically so they look like thisthanks, Doug

Is there anyway to align textfields on the seperation between the caption and value so the fields would be vertically aligned on this position? I can't even find the position of the line in the object dialog.Thanks, doug

Just in case someone has as much trouble with this as me you first have to open the fragment library and then you can create fragments.Cat fan,doug
