Is there an event for a field so that they can click the "enter" key and have the form submitted?

(Hey, do I get points for answering my own question? 😉I guess the only way to see the data model in the xpath builder in workbench is to have the schema embedded, according to the workbench doco:From this link: http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/8.2/wb_help/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm?context=Workbench_ES&topic=000765"If you have the XML schema that describes the data that the form collects, you can embed the schema in the form to make the data structure appear in XPath Builder.

What are the pros and cons of embedding a schema to a form? Are there rules for when one should embed and when not? I plan on having all of our form schemas stored in a schema directory on the livecycle server.ThanksElaine

I just posted this thread below, but it would not allow me to add the attachments, so I will mail them to livecycle8. Hope that's ok. Here's the original postHi, I have a schema bound to a form that utilizes a dynamic subform (min=1, max= unlimited occurrences of the subform). I was wondering if someone might take a look at the form and schema to see if I have defined everything correctly and bound it correctly. The form has three layers of subforms, which are not needed for this particular exam...

Is it possible to hide all instances of a subform with a single line of javascript? I'm trying something like this: repeatingSubform[*].presence = "hidden";but that causes designer to crash...Or, must I loop through all instances of the subform and turn each one off individually?Thanks,Elaine

Wow! Thanks for the great explanation! So in other words, a dynamic subform behaves in the same way that a dynamic table does, I get it. So to reference a field in the first subform, or a field in the second subform, I would just index into the array, perhaps something like _Accounts_Subform[0].fieldName?Also, I've never referred to an object using the underscore (_Accounts_Subform vs. Accounts_Subform). What does the leading underscore mean? Usually I just create a variable that resolves to the...

I have checkbox fields where the user can select up to 10 accounts. For each account, I need to have a certain subform displayed. So if the user selects 5 accounts I need 5 occurrences of the same subform. Can this be done programmatically? Or do I have to have 10 subforms and just hide/show what I need? I prefer the former, if can be done.Please advise,Thanks,Elaine

Interesting, everyone on my team could duplicate the issue. We had 4 peoplethat could. Interesting observation about the field tag being in the xmlsource - Good research! However, I don't want to have to do that, I thinkthis (and other) issues with fragments are problematic enough that we mayjust abandon them and try again after ES2 is released.Thanks,Elaine

When we added a schema to a form that contains fragments, suddenly the fragment fields became visible and editable from the FORM. The fields in the fragment are normally not editable unless you edit the fragment. (Designer)This is a huge concern for us, especially as we have new developers coming and going on this project. It is my understanding that fragments should only be editable within the fragment xdp, not from within a form that the fragment is on.This is a problem that we can repeat / re...

Well, the question below was posted to this forum and to adobeforums a few weeks back, and there's been no response from the pro's...just wondering if anyone can either acknowledge it as a problem or tell me that I'm all messed up. I'll take either. This is still a problem that we can duplicate and leaves us highly uncomfortable. Please see original question below, thanks friends...

The fields in the fragment are normally not editable unless you edit the fragment. (Designer)2) Embedding a schema: While we were testing a process we had the schema embedded. Then we wanted to remove the schema entirely. So we opened the form and deleted the sche...

We're starting to poke around with processes, and we ran into a number of issues that I'm hoping I can get an understanding of. 1) We noticed we had to move (drag) fragments into the repository before we moved in a form that used those fragments - if we moved the form in first, and then the fragments (relative pathing preserved), the form could not resolve the fragments and when opening the form you could see the broken fragment references. If we brought the fragments in and then the form, the f...

Hi, We are using winCVS for our source code control for forms / fragments, etc. Is there a best practice for being able to push files from wincvs directly to the adobe server?Secondly, are the files (forms / fragments, etc) stored inside the system tables on the server or are they stored in a directory structure?Thanks,Elaine

I have a form with two main subforms: A search subform and a mainContent subform.When the form launches in workspace, search is visible and the mainContent is hidden. This is because we have to require the user to select a customer before displaying the mainContent of the form. Once a customer is selected, we hide the search subform and display the mainContent subform.The mainContent subform is what contains the submit button. Actually, I have the "true" FSSSUBMIT button hidden and another submi...

OK, good enough 😉 Here is a pdf example of a form that contains a table with three columns: a radio button, customer name, and date of birth,If you look at the initForm() method in the formScript object, you can see what I'm trying to do. I can successfully hide the customer name column or the date of birth column, but no combination of javascript will allow me to hide the radio column.Thank you!Elaine

Thanks Paul, we have looked at the samples. Either the forms contain a schema but no fragments, or the forms contain fragments but no schema. We'd really like to see a completed sample form that makes use of fragments and a schema, and shows how the fragment is linked to the schema. We're getting there, ... Thanks!

I can't upload an xdp. This forum software will accept the text of my post, but throws off an error and won't let me complete the upload. We really should have the ability to upload an xdp or an archive so we can provide concrete examples of what we're trying to do.In any case, I've emailed the test form to livecycle8. Thanks!

Well, I think now I am able to prove that there is a problem or bug when trying to hide a table column using javascript at run time. I have a dynamic xdp form with a simple table and have tried every combination of hiding the column. I'll try to attach it to this posting. See the formScript initForm() method to see all of the combinations I've tried. Just uncomment the ones you want to test and you can see that none of these options produce the desired effect of truly hiding a column. Thanks for...
