Re: Need an In-Field Calculator Function Similar to Excel's "=" Sum Function For Data Entry - Adobe LiveCycle 22-09-2015
It seems that will only work with text fields. I have 98 numeric fields that I would need to change, and then I'm summing all of the expenses for each day at the bottom of each column. Each column total is derived with this formula: sum (Table_Exp.Row1[*].Amount1). If I change all of the numeric fields to text fields, I would then need to find out how to convert the values back to numeric to allow for the formulas to work.

Need an In-Field Calculator Function Similar to Excel's "=" Sum Function For Data Entry - Adobe LiveCycle 15-09-2015
I created a new expense form with a bunch of numeric fields for things such as transportation, lodging, meals, etc. This form replaced an Excel spreadsheet. Everything works fine, but now users miss the Excel sum (=) function to manually calculate a total for a field themselves.For example, a user has four different charges for transportation that he needs to total up, and then needs to enter that total in the transportation numeric field of the form. In the Excel version, the users had the abil...

Re: Set Field's Content Fill Color - Adobe LiveCycle 14-09-2015
Magus,The problem with this solution is that it will turn off field highlighting for ALL fields. It may help with the fields I want to color, but all of the other fields will be white, confusing the user.Also, turning off highlighting with my form will leave the user with this feature disabled. I wouldn't want to mess with someone's environment and risk ticking them off. I don't want to rely on them knowing how to re-enable highlighting.

Re: Set Field's Content Fill Color - Adobe LiveCycle 13-09-2015
Well....it does work...BUT, as you mentioned, there's no way to ensure that users will disable Highlight Fields.Unfortunately, I can't use the solution. It has to work without requiring the users to modify any settings. They must be able to open the document and have it work without having to do anything else.Oh well, I guess this one's going to have to go under the "Not Possible" column.

Magus069,This does not work either. Field color only changes when clicking on field.

Re: Set Field's Content Fill Color - Adobe LiveCycle 12-09-2015
XIIIX,That's the code I mentioned in my original post. But, you're getting close....I opened your modified form in Reader, and the field's value color changes now, but only after you click in the field. Once you leave the field, the value color reverts back to the default.The goal is to have the value's color changed when the form opens, and have it stay that color. The user should not have to click in the field to get the color to change. Here's a video of what is happening.https://www.dropbox....

BTW, I'm using LiveCycle Designer ES4. I made the change to the field's XML, then tried to preview, but no change in color.

Re: Set Field's Content Fill Color - Adobe LiveCycle 11-09-2015
Hi Magus069,Thanks for your input. Unfortunately, no luck with the suggestion.I created a new form with just one text field and applied your suggested code to the XML for the field. No color change.Here's the form that I created as a test: http://tinyurl.com/o32e76pHere's the field's XML: (The addition is in bold) Name
