Thanks radzmar! Works like a charm.To clarify for everyone else, radzmar's script, when added to the click event after an xfa.host.messageBox, opens a second dialog box when the user clicks 'OK'. The second dialog box asks if the user wants to close the document and allows for 'OK' or 'Cancel' to be selected.

closing a form after a Javascript xfa.hostmessage box

I have a form with a checkbox that, when checked, displays an error message using Javascript xfa.hostmessage on the click event. I would like the form to close after the user clicks "OK" on the Javascript Warning box.I have tried adding an app.execMenuItem(Close); script after the xfa.hostmessage box script, but it did not work. I also tried the app.execMenuItem(Close); script on the exit event of the checkbox, to no avail.Is this even possible? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Re: LC crash on save - cannot recover form

I never found out why this happened. I now save each form I am working on in LiveCycle in two different locations, one on the server and one local. It's a bit of a nuisance to Save then Save As, but I use shortcuts to make it a bit easier. And it's not nearly as frustrating as losing hours worth of work.It would be nice to know why such a disastrous crash can happen, but that seems like a developer-level issue to me. Way above my pay grade.

Thanks radzmar for the reply.What do I have to change in the script to make it work? I've changed the name of the RadioButtonGroup, but what is the "newText" referencing? Does that need to be changed as well?

I have a dynamic form with a drop-down box containing selections 1, 2, 3, and 4; later in the form I have a radio button group with two radio buttons labeled "pass" and "fail".I would like to have drop-down selections 1 and 2 automatically select "fail" and 3 and 4 automatically select "pass" in the radio button group, with the option of the user changing this with a warning message.Any help is greatly appreciated.ThxDrew

The only TMP file I eventually found was also 0 kb. Thanks for the filepath to the temp directory though.LAN Admin did manage to restore a partial backup, but I still lost about 2 hours worth of work. Now I am saving the form in 3 different locations every time I complete a section.

I had almost completed a 12-page form, created using LiveCycle Designer ES2, when LC crashed as I was trying to save the form. Upon navigating back to the document it shows as being 0 kb and an "Invalid PDF file".I had been saving after finishing each page of the form, and have put many hours in to this project. The document had been saved to a network server, and LAN Admin are trying to recover a partial backup for me; however there is no expectation to recover the last 3 pages I completed this...

LC 8 form filled in Acrobat 7: text fields blank when form is saved

I have created a form using LiveCycle 8.0, which is usually filled out by others using Acrobat Pro 7.0. When they save the form under a new name and then reopen it, all the text fields are empty but the selections in the drop-down lists are intact. Other forms I have created don't have this issue.I have set the form properties to automatically preserve scripting changes when saved, however I have noted that this selection is not available in LiveCycle version 7. Therefore is this an issue than c...

Thanks Paul and Nith for the help. I finally have the form working as intended and am learning more of the intricacies of LiveCycle Designer daily.

Hi Nith.The text field is in a subform set to Flow Content, with "Allow Page Breaks within Content" checked. This subform is wrapped in another subform (at the Page level) which is also set to Flow Content, however the "Allow Page Breaks within Content" checkbox is grayed out. When I have tried putting the text field directly in the subform at the Page level, the checkbox is always grayed out. The Page is set to Position Content, with "Allow Page Breaks within Content" checked.I know it's someth...

I have a form I created in LiveCycle Designer 7, which consists of 3 pages. Page 3 has 4 subforms, the third of which encompasses a text field that is designed for long narratives so that it will extend over multiple pages, and will allow the fourth subform to move to the end of the final page when the user tabs out of the text field. Currently when I paste text into the field on the PDF preview window, the text field expands to the very bottom of page 3 and the fourth subform disappears. I know...
