I'm just wondering if it is possible to force a pdf file to open in a web browser. So that, if the file is saved to someone's computer, when you open it, it automatically opens in the web browserThanks,Nik

Hello,I have some fields set up with error messages. for example in a date field, if the user enters a date in the future and tabs out of the field, an error message appears indicating that the date cannot be in the future. The problem with this form is that it is not going to be a submittable form. They will just print it out and mail/fax/email it in. Therefore when the error message appears I would like the field to clear but I cant figure out how to do that. I am assuming I need to put someth...

Hello,I have a form where if the user checks box A, it will open a section with a repeating subform. if the user clicks add, it will add a new instance of the subform. if you then go back and uncheck box A, the repeating subforms should disappear, however they are staying visible.In the 'change' event of the check box I have the following code:if(this.rawValue == "1"){subfrmRepeatingForm.presence = "visible";subfrmRepeatingBtn.presence = "visible";} if (this.rawValue == "0"){subfrmRepeatingForm....

Hello,I am curious to know whether or not email addresses are case sensitive. I know for most accounts like hotmail or gmail they are not, however I'm wondering if there is an exception to this rule. I have a form with an email address field and it currently only allows for lower case letters, but I'm wondering if it should be changed to include both upper and lower.Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

If the user then changes their selection and chooses another radio button, it should remove the fields on each instance. the problem is that if it is only removing fields from ...

Thank you for your help.What I meant by 'standard messages' is error messages that I do not have control over. Such as, when I hit submit and the user forgets to fill in a mandatory field, a standard message appears telling the user that one of the required fields are not filled in. This is a standard message that I cannot change. Also, on the error messages I have created, the error message appears correctly but the heading of the error message is in English.You have however, answered my questi...

Thank you for your response radzmar. Below is what I have in the exit event currently. So I tried what you suggested by going to paterns but it is still not working for me.if (!(this.isNull)) { var str = this.rawValue; if (str.length != 6) { xfa.host.messageBox("Please enter a six character postal code in the format A9A9A9."); } else { var regExp = /^([R]\d[A-Z]\d[A-Z]\d)$/i; if (regExp.test(str)) { str = str.toUpperCase(); this.rawValue = str.substring(0,3) + " " + str.substring(3,6); } else { ...

Hello,I have a postal code field that is currently restricted to 7 characters including a space. The format is A0A0A0 and the program will automatically put the space in the middle when the user tabs over. I want the user to enter only 6 characters but If i put that restriction in, it hides one of the letters as it it counts the space as one of the 6 characters. If I change it to allow 7 characters, then the user can enter the whole 7 characters, but I only want them to enter 6 plus still allow ...

now here's another question about the postal code field. I want the user to enter only 6 characters. If i put that restriction in then because of the space, it counts the space as one of the 6 characters and cuts off one of the letters or numbers. If I change it to allow 7 characters, then the user can enter the whole 7 characters, but I only want them to enter 6. Does this make sense?
