Hi Scott,I don't know what could be causing the problem, I have not had any problems referencing values from a programmatically loaded drop down list. Can you share your form? (host it somewhere, like google docs, and add a link to it in this thread)RegardsBruce

Hi Scott,I am also facing similar issue. Sometimes the createt PDF is corrupted and could not be opened.In my case, I have reached to a conclusion that whenever the size of generated PDF exceeds 4 MB , it gets corrupted. For the same data if I remove or replace some images so that the size is below 4 MB then it works fine.I have contacted Adobe support few days back, but still not able to resolve the issue.Can you please check if the issue you are facing is also related to size of PDF?-Swati

Hey again, glad you worked it out.Just for clarification, a literal string is anything between quotes. Literal strings are just plain text. Including the name of the variable in the string does not actually cause a reference to the value to exist. The compiler just sees text, and doesn't know which (if any) parts of the text you intended to reference a variable.So when you wrote:xfa.host.setFocus("xfa[0].form[0].form1[0].#subform[0].Subform2[0].Table1[0].Row1[rowNum].TextField1[0]");if was almos...

If you only have the one field, you can create a regular button that stores the password in a temporary variable, clears the field, emails it, then puts the password back into the field. Here's an example:var mypassword = PasswordField.rawValue;//store the password field value in a variablePasswordField.rawValue = "";//clear the field and the resultant xmlevent.target.submitForm({cURL:"mailto:me@me.com",cSubmitAs:"XML"});//mail the form with attached xmlPasswordField.rawValue = mypassword;//brin...

Hi Jorge,I'm not sure what you mean by work independently from each other when it comes to "binding", Do you want the details to auto-populate or are you looking for a button to optionally populate the form.Bruce

Hi radzmar,I checked the parent subform, which was fine, but I had accidentally left one of the grandparents as positioned. Fixed it and it's working great now. Thanks for the quick response... I've been getting a headache over this for the better part of a day.- Scott

Sorry about that...The only other way I know of is to edit the xml directly. Add a list box or drop down list to your form. Select the field, then click the XML Source tab (next to master pages tab. If it's not there, right click to the right of the preview tab in the gray area and check off XML Source).Where it says you can manually add in items in the following format: Option 1 Option 2you can paste all of your list items into column A in an excel sheet, then put the following formula into B1...

Hi there,I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (19.010.20069) and I don't see any setting in the properties window for data binding.I run into an issue where my schema is not binding to the Excel file and I can't import new form data.Whenever I open an Excel spreadsheet, I open the Source tab and add a new map from the XML file of a filled-in Adobe form; I am able to see the schema in the Source map panel and save.Then, I fill in new data into my Adobe form, save as xml and try to import that data int...

Hi Scott,The subform has a nodes collection you can loop though, as you suspected. If might show up more than you want but you can test the className to see if it is a field and then ui.oneOfChild.className to work out what type of field. So;for (var i = 0; i < Subform1.nodes.length; i++){ var n = Subform1.nodes.item(i); console.println(n.className + " " + n.name + " " + n.ui.oneOfChild.className);}Hope this helps.Bruce

Scott,Thanks again for your help. I checked that the variable value is hidden and I removed one of the check boxes and used the original change event you provided and I still can't get it to work. The background image still shows up no matter what. Do you think I should try using the radio button list? I don't really need to and it seems unnecessarily complicated to use that instead of one check box. Any ideas on how I should proceed from here?Thanks again,Saskia

Hi,In addition we have an example form here: http://assure.ly/gBUUXB, which highlight Howard's point about the automatic tabbing order being set by the relative x/y coordinates of objects (working from the top/left) and that once an object in a subform has focus, tabbing will work through the remaining objects in the subform before coming back out to the rest of the form.

If you're going to a website you can also use app.launchURL() (it doesn't support files though).Not sure if one's better than the other.

In the header is an empty text field that I have formatted to look as I want the title text to appear. Also in my master page is a "FormOptions" subform with text fields for each 'variable' such as title.In the Title text field in the fragment, in the initialize code I've used:this.rawValue = FormSettings.T...

Hi,Keep in mind, you only need Reader to use the forms (unless you're doing somthing beyond filling-in form fields). Encouraging Reader (vs Pro) lets the user have the full benefit of all form handling updates--and other compatibility issues like IE9. I've have seen what I believe may be a bug that went away when the client upgraded from Reader 9 to Reader 10. It had to do with repeating table cells all named "Cell" . For one user, their Reader 9 choked, reporting that it couldn't find Row[i]Cel...

I'm not aware of any way to directly copy multiple excels cells into multiple form fields, wihtout doing each cell individually. There is a bit of a waorkaround that you can use, though... you can create an excel workbook which binds itself to an xml data source whose schema matches that of your form. This can be a bit time consuming, especially when you bring repeatable subforms into play, but when done correctly, you can fill the data in the excel document, output it to an xml file then bind t...

Past-tens,Once again you made my day .Thank you.I've missed to put if (xfa.event.commitKey == 3) then on the button that was next in the tabbbing order.Once I put the code, it fixed the issue and it is working as expected. I actually had xfa.host.setFocus(Button3), but that wasn't enough.You explained it very well. Thank you so much!

I know no one has replied to this in a while but I was trying to teach myself how to control hidden tables in my PDF using drop down selections. I used the above code to mock-up a simple form and have it working but when you open the PDF I get a validation error message when you make your selection in the drop-down menu:The value you entered for Drop-down List is invalid.If you click OK it still unhides the table you selected in drop down. How do you edit the following to stop the error messages...

Wouldn't removing the buttons from the tab order affect accessibility with regards to screen readers and that sort of thing?I'm curious as I've recently been instructed to learn all about forms accessibility lately.

No worries, this forum has helped me out a number of times, and I like to show my appreciation by helping others when I can.As for the commitKey code not working, I've seen this happen when it's used with javascript instead of formcalc. It's not a huge issue, and converting your validation from javascript to formcalc may not be worth the trouble you would have doing so. For other fields, though, you could try putting the following code in formcalc instead of using javascript, just to see if usin...

That's probably a sound solution, but let me throw a wrench in there: I have a really large form that uses positioned cells. Is there any way to automate the conversion of groups of cells to a table, such that I don't have to build the whole thing from scratch (which would take hours and hours and hours)?I should mention that the form is derived from a microsoft word document, which did use tables, but I'd rather not go through the importation process again if I can help it.Thanks for the help

Scott,1) No date binding means a form object is not included in exported XML. Data binding has no effect upon saving data when saving a form, the form will contain the data.2) For me, rule #1 is use a schema and schema binding. It is worth the upfront investment in time. What you see in the schema is what you see in the output data, given a form object is bound to the schema. You can bind a single schema element to multiple form objects if you need to re-use data across sub-forms, also. Rule #2,...
