Thank you very much for the quick response to this question. I used your
example and tweaked it just a little to make it allow only alpha
characters and then to convert to upper case. The result that worked was

I am creating a form that requires City, State and Zip. I need to make
sure that users do not put City, State and Zip into the City field;
which someone so nicely pointed out to me as a problem with the form.
Anyway, what I am looking for is a way to force the user to only be able
to enter alpha characters into the City text field. I had glanced at the
"Validation Patterns" OOTB functionality but I could not find anything
listed that would complete the requirement.Thank you,
I have a client that is trying to use a form that I designed and
select a sub-form based upon a desired action then fill in data into the
text fields. The text fields then populate a data collection that is
translated into a 2D data matrix barcode. There is also code that
converts the text of most fields to UPPER case. Is there a way to allow
the form to still fu...
Thank you very much for your response! The form I have create is really
made up multiple sub-form with actions that make the sub-forms enabled
or disabled, visible or invisible depending upon what the user selects
to do. I have a two buttons currently on each sub-form, one is a Print
button the completed form and the other button takes the end user back
to the first page of the form. The button that takes the user back is
supposed to reset all the fields and go back to the first page. But even
I have created an Adobe Reader extended form. When the form has been
completed and printed I do not want the end user to be able to save the
changes and over write the original file. How can I supress the "Save"
changes dialogue box that pops up when the user closes the form?
I am trying to make sure that fields are populated with data prior to
moving to the next field, but it seems that simply making the field
required is not sufficient. What else must I do to enforce data entry
within required fileds?Thank you,
Thank you Paul and Steve for your quick responses. I was concerned that
the JRE might have been an issue causing some odd behaviors within the
form at a certain client. I guess that I will now have to pursue a
Yes, I am using LiveCycle Designer to create the form. Then utilizing
the Reader Extensions Server to allow the barcode to function properly
in the Reader application. We were put down this path by Adobe because
the forms will go out to more users than what the Adobe Acrobat Extended
applicaiton would be able to license. Otherwise, I would have just used
that application and not had to worry about the whole LiveCycle Server
Would it be possible to disable the barcode object or the data
collection for the sub-form until the "Print Button" is clicked? So, in
that case once the "Print Button" click event happens it then enables
the object or collection and it is populated with the correct data
before the sub-form is actually printed.
The form is sent to our customers who will fill in the information for
their clients, print off the form and then send it to us. This form is
eliminating the hand written forms currently utilized in our processing.
It is also designed to help eliminate the manual keying process on our
side and putting the owness onto our customers to fill in the necessary
data. I have not been able to get us into place where we can simply use
a dedicated web page that would automatically populate our databases. ...
Would this also cause the fields on the printed form to be in uppercase
or only the data in the barcode? I ask this because if there is an issue
with the barcode read then the document must be keyed from image and I
am also concerned about legibility of the printed form.
Yes, the data populated in the barcode data is being read after the
paper document has been scanned. The resulting data is then popluated
into a database and it was left to me to do the conversion to uppercase
at the beginning on the form.
I am building a form that populates the data entered into text fields,
drop-down lists, etc. into a 2D data matrix barcode. The form has a
"Wecome Page" where the user selects what sub-form they want to
complete. I have actions created that cause all the sub-forms to be
disabled and invisible until that sub-form is selected. Once it is
selected all other sub-forms are set to remain disabled and invisible.
After the selected sub-form is completed the user clicks on the "Print
Button" and the sub-...
Thank you for your response. I see how the code that you supplied would
work as exepcted on a single page form. I am sorry that I did not give
further details about the form I have created. The form has multiple
sub-forms within it and depending upon what is selected on the "Welcome
Page" a particular sub-form is displayed. Also, all of the data is
populated into a 2D barcode also in the sub-form. I currently have a
"Print Button" on each sub-form which prints the completed form with the
I have created a form with LiveCycle Designer ES2 9 and there are a lot
of text fields. I would like to know if there is a way to make a global
setting for the form that converts all text field data to uppercase? I
have found that by adding xfa.event.change =
xfa.event.change.toUpperCase(); to the "change" event will allow me to
convert one field at a time but as I mentioned before, I have a lot of
text fields and I would not want to add this repeatedly to every one of
them. So, is there a way t...
