I've built many dynamic tables that typically add a single instance of a row at a time. Does anyone have a method for duplicating two rows at a time?Thanks.

Has anyone had complaints from MacOS users about the popup calendar for date fields not working? The user clicks on the field and the calendar immediately disappears.I've verified that the user is using the latest version of the Reader DC for MacOS. Below is what it looks like on screen; you can see the button doesn't show properly.

I've never needed quotes before, and like I said the script obviously runs because the xfa.host.messageBox statement works.So it's something in the form that is preventing the script from setting the presence property of the subform. Perhaps something is scrambled in the XML, which I would be useless at debugging.Not a big deal... I've worked around it by removing the objects from the subform.Thanks.

Uncheck "Allow Page Breaks within Content" for the subform that your text field is in. This will cause the entire subform to be sent to the new page.

I can test it with messageBox, so I know the script executes, but the property doesn't get set.if (this.rawValue == 1) {xfa.host.messageBox("One");form1.Page.NextYear.NYSubform.presence = "visible";}if (this.rawValue == 0) {xfa.host.messageBox("Zero");form1.Page.NextYear.NYSubform.presence = "hidden";}

I tried it with two ifs and it still wouldn't set presence = "visible".Very strange.

So two ifs rather than an if with an else.Is else known to be unreliable?

I fixed it by referencing the objects directly rather than hiding/showing the subform that contained them:if (this.rawValue == 1) {Title.presence = "visible";Grade.presence = "visible";Year.presence = "visible";}else {Title.presence = "hidden";Grade.presence = "hidden";Year.presence = "hidden";}...But if anyone can explain why hiding/showing the subform didn't work I'd like to know.Thanks.

I've got a dead simple script that hides and shows a subform based on the value of a checkbox:if (this.rawValue == 1) {form1.Page.NextYearSubform.NYSubform.presence = "visible";}else {form1.Page.NextYearSubform.NYSubform.presence = "hidden";}This works fine if it is the first event upon opening the form. But if any other click event fires (the form has lots of checkboxes and radio buttons), this script ceases to work. Anyone seen this before?Thanks.

Nice; I'm going to bookmark this one.I'm guessing the Case statement would be helpful here too.

So my Level 2 troubleshooter called me back this morning, after two days of what struck me as very thorough research on his part.He explained that ES3 and 4 were not tested with Windows 10; they were both developed with the Windows 8 registry. Moreover, LCD is destined for sunset in favour of Adobe Experience Manager form development, so we can't expect much change in this regard.Problems with LCD previews can occur with Windows 10 when saving to network drives, especially network drives that ar...

Yeah, I got the feeling that this guy wasn't in a position to report bugs to fix but was rather looking for a config change that would solve my problem.What is the conventional wisdom around here about the future of LCD? The guy I dealt with implied it was being rolled into Adobe Experience Manager, but with the quick look that I gave it I couldn't see any of the depth that LCD has.

I’m now not surprised that I didn’t get much help here with this one. This is clearly a difficult and unusual case, although IMO there is nothing unusual about how I use Adobe software; the machine is less than two months old and I am not in any way a complex “power user”.I spent 15 minutes with Adobe’s level 1 support, and then over 1.5 hours with an experienced and competent level 2 analyst. He manually deleted all traces of Adobe products, over 100,000 files, and cleared all registry items. T...

Study the example from Assure Dynamics. They handle the delete function differently than the add function. They basically send a "click" event to the button in each table, just as if someone had clicked the button.Here's an example from the delete button on one of my forms:// '_' is shorthand for instanceManager, eg '_Row1'// this.parent.index tells instanceManager to remove// the row that the button is in.var vCurrentRow = this.parent.index;xfa.resolveNode("Three.ActivitySubform.DatesSubform.Da...

I have a flowed form that grows to accommodate text, so it is difficult to predict pagination.But I need to have one of my subforms always start a new page, regardless of how many pages precede it.Is there a way to script this?I'm thinking some sort script that if an odd number precedes it, then show a blank subform that pads the total page count to an even number.Thanks,Scott.

I have Reader DC installed, which of course everyone can get.Like I said, I have not read anything that indicates Acrobat is a requirement for PDF preview with LCD.I might take this up with Adobe Support.Scott.

Interesting.I've used ES2 for many years and never had the problem. It happened immediately upon installing ES4.Seems to me that LCD should not rely on Acrobat being installed; I have not seen that mentioned in any system requirements.So even though I have Acrobat 10 and 11 available, at this point I'm trying to get a plain vanilla LCD ES4 to behave properly by itself.Thanks,Scott.

I found a number of threads on this reaching back two or more years, but no definitive answer.I have a newly installed LCD ES4.I have made sure the Adobe Reader add-on is enabled in IE.Reader DC is installed. (I can also install Acrobat Pro XI if needed).Still, the PDF Preview (F5) command is greyed out under View.Any ideas?Thanks.
