I am writing a form attachment object in designer using the normal javascript method:var formObj = event.target;formObj.importDataObject(fileHandle);Which is fine. But I want to allow only word or pdf files, so I usefileObj.MIMEType == "application/msword";to see if it is a word document for instance. The problem is that MIMType is returning null when I run it with Acrobat Pro 9. When running the form under Reader 9 & Reader 10 it returns the mime correctly.The form is reader extended through Li...

Thanks for the replies Steve.So in summary it appears that xml data bound to a form through a data connection can't be embedded into a pdf or xfo after all. I was hoping we didn't need to edit the xfo code manually, but be able to make use of the data connection. Using macro's I was able to change the tags of the iso provided xml data in to tags and paste them into the xfo code. Thanks again.

OK. So I have my form elements (including the country list) wrapped in a subform and to add them to the object library I drag the subform into the libarary (in designer). A dialog pops up asking me what to name it and for a description. I hit enter and its available in my custom object library.The part I cant figure out is how do I embed the country list xml data into the custom object?I can open the form with Acrobat Pro then from the menu go Forms -> Manage Form Data -> Import Data... and impo...

Yeah that would normally work, but hasnt for some reason. Editing the liblayout file was a last resort.So how did you embed the xml data into the object?

Hi SteveGood to know it's possible! And yeah, thats the country xml data file Im working with too.But I can't work out how to do it. I wasnt able to use your xfo object in Designer, even after manually adding the element to Designer's ObjLibLayout.xml file, so I can't see in action.Can you walk me through the process of embedding xml data into an object?

HiDoes anyone know if I can embed xml data into an xfo library object? Let me explain...I have a list-box which is to contain a list of countries of the world as defined in ISO 3166. This is a really long list and provided in an xml document. So I want to keep the xml document as the source of the data.I want to use the countries list in an address block and save it as a custom object i.e. an xfo, so I can reuse it in different forms.So my question is: can I embed the xml data into a library xfo...

Hi all,Im wondering if there is a way to save a fragment and keep the data connection it uses? I have a company details form that uses a business number lookup over a web service, but when I save it as a fragment and use it in another form it does not have the data connection and therefore doesnt work. Is there a way around this??Cheers!

Hi Niall,Thanks for having a look at my post. Yes LC has some good validation built-in but what I'm doing goes much further than the standard functionality provided. Another example of what Im doing:I am passing a reference to the object itself, not just its som expression. This way I can access all its properties programmatically. When an object is added to the mandatory field array I can add an asterisk ( * ) to the end of the field caption. When the user hits the submit button, any mandatory ...

Does anyone know how to define an event programmatically for a form object using JavaScript? My example is this:I am passing form fields to a validation function in a JavaScript object by calling scriptObj.addToValidation(this); from the field initialize event.The field object is added to a JavaScript array so I can check for null values of potentially hundreds of fields with one block of code. What I also want to do is define the click and enter events for each object programmatically from the ...
