Hello Everyone I use Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES2 to create fillable forms for people in my group. Without fail, people with mobile devices are unable to see drop-down lists, date fields, etc. All they can view is the artwork used for the form. I've read that b/c LiveCycle saves its forms in an XFA format, it cannot be read on Ipads and tablets. I've tried (without success) to open the document in Adobe Professional and save it in another format. However, the problem persists where it cannot be ...

Using LiveCycle Designer ES2, I created a 5x5 table. I want to number each cell of the table 1-25 in a small box in the lower left corner of the cell. I dragged a numeric field into the table cell, however the field takes on the same size as the cell. I can't seem to resize the numeric field without resizing the entire cell of the table. How do I stop this behavior?ThanksDaryl

Yep! That works for me! Thanks!The entire form was done in FormCalc. It would take too long (and beyond what I know of Javascript) to change it at this point.Thanks again.

Although this is a sad testament to my programming skills, I have little shame since I only do this kind of thing perhaps once every two or three years. I’m using FormCalc (mainly b/c I’m still learning Javascript and this form had already been written in FormCalc). Here is the problem: I have three text fields (Textfield1, Textfield2, Textfield3). I created three variables (var1, var2, var3) and initialized them to 0. In order to determine how many of the fields contain data, I used if/then/els...

Thanks for you time and understanding. Although I have a very basic and generic understanding of writing code, it's not something I am familiar with. I'm using LiveCycle Designer 8.0 and my problem is this:I've written some code (FormCalc) that checks to see if a person has:1. Not checked one of the checkboxes to ACCEPT or DECLINE the terms and conditions of an agreement2. If the person is attempting to make an order, but the DECLINE box is checkedIf either of those conditions is true, an error ...

I have two radio button lists laid out in two columns to select garment sizes (small, medium, large). The "M" side is MEN and the "W" side is WOMEN. The Radio button lists are named MENS and WOMEN respectively. ITEM QTY. COST ITEM QTY. COST ||MS ||WS||MM ||WM||ML ||WL||NO SELECTION ||NO SELECTION ______ ______ TOTAL TOTALThe user selects the size using the radio button, moves into the QTY field to input the quantity and the COST is automatically calculated in a read-only numeric field (the QTY a...

LIke you said, the = and the == are two completely different animals and it's actually what I've been missing......for the past THREE DAYS! It worked perfectly! I CAN'T WAIT to get the two books I ordered this morning from Amazon on Javascript (so I can get away from FormCalc) and designing forms with LiveCycle. Guess I'm getting old and have forgotten all this stuff from college. Thanks, for the advice and sticking with me on this Paul. You have been a TREMENDOUS help!

Unfortunatley, my inexperience with this language and working with objects will become apparent b/c I am having problems with the syntax as you'll see below. >The RadioButtonList name is "RObject1">The three individual radio buttons are named R1, R2 and R3 with values of 30, 60, 90 respectively>A numeric field named NField1 is supposed to display which radio button is selected>Using FormCalc, the following script was used: if (RObject1=30) then NField1=30 else Field1=0 endif>I used "calculate" a...

Although this looks like Javascript, I'm sure the logic logic applies to FormCalc (the language I'm using in the form) and give this a try. I guess that means using ELSEIF statements to test the entire RadioButtonList?(......wonder how long it would take me to learn basic Javascript???.........)Thanks for your recommendation! I'll let you know how it works out!

Hello EveryoneAccounting for the possibility that I posted this in an incorrect forum previously, I am re-posting here with the hope that no forum rules are violated in doing so.I don't know a lot about writing code, just basic things. The last thing I touched was C++ while in college and that was over 10 years ago. However, let's say I have a subform "FormA" that has a radio button object "Obj1" with four radio buttons R1, R2, R3, and R4. Using Acrobat 8 and FORMCALC, is there a way to address ...

Yep. Maybe it's time to upgrade to Acrobat Pro 9. For only $230 US, it's probably worth it. Do you know of any good sources and references I can use to learn BASIC coding that can be used in this application? I'm not looking to become a pro at it, but I just want to be able to do some basic things.

I attached an RTF doc and replied via email. I thought I read somewhere on these discussions where you can't do an attachment through email, but instead had to do them through the discussion board. However, I don't see anything in the Reply window that allows me to do that so I hope this works.

Just for some background, I am designing a form to be emailed and filled out by the recepient using LiveCycle Designer 8,0. In this form, I want to create a list of all cities in my state (over 550). Apparently, there is no way to directly populate the drop-down other than typing each city individually. However, I have searched the forums and found that there is possibly a script that can be created to accomplish this. The problem is that I have practically NO knowledge about writing code. There...
