Hello,I'm sorry, I meant to say "All data entry on a mobile device is done through HTML based guides". You are correct about Guides being Flash based, but for our Mobile framework, the server will support returning HTML which can be rendered on iOS in the browser.As I was mentioning above, rendering an XDP to either HTML or PDF for a mobile device results in a flattened document, which is strictly for viewing.FYI,Scott

Hello,On iOS, Guides are rendered as HTML using the browser on the iPhone/iPad. XDP documents are not rendered as form Guides. All data entry is done through Guides. It is possible to renderer an XDP in a final format as a flattened PDF (non editable, no scripts,etc) which can then be displayed using the devices PDF viewer. Flash/SWF is not used at all.FYI,Scott

Hello,To answer your questions:1. Cannot find a suitable client for LiveCycle ES2.. Does ADEP client backward compatible?Yes, the ADEP mobile clients are backwards compatible.2. Does the mobile device require Adobe AIR to succesfully install/use the mobile client?No. All of the mobile clients are native applications, except for the PlayBook where AIR is supported natively. On the PlayBook it's based on AIR.3. Mobile Guide render service renders the XDP to mobile devices. Will this require Adobe ...

Hi,Let me try to clear up some of the confusion. As Matt mentioned in an earlier post, In order to develop a "form" that will work on the mobile devices, you need to use LiveCycle Guilde Builder, which is a component of the LiveCycle Workbench development environment. Support for XFA/PDF dynamic forms, which is what you are creating with LiveCycle Designer can be viewed using desktop Acrobat Reader/Pro products. and is a feature that we are investigating for Adobe Reader on Android but is not cu...

Hi,Just as a heads up. We do plan to have support for a multi-step workflow in the Fall (2011). Meaning that we will provide the ability to edit a guide/form during the task-approval step of a workflow. In the existing Mobile clients it is only possible to fill-in a form during the initial form submission. Subsequent workflow steps are limited to 'one-click approval' actions where the user can select a pre-defined action for a specific workflow task. Tasks that are not authored with the 'one-cli...

Oh, OK. So add the value "Select" to the list, and then under the value tab select the Default: dropdown, and pick the item you want to show up by default. I think that's what you're looking for.

Ah, I see. My script was using Javascript syntax. One option is to change the scripts Language in the drop down in the script editor to Javascript, which will fix your syntax error.Or you can use the equivalent script below which is updated for FormCalcif ($.rawValue == "1") then TextField10.presence = "visible"else TextField10.presence = "hidden"endifThey are different languages with different syntax. In formcalc the equivalent of 'this' is '$'. Also you will notice the 'if' syntax requires the...

Are you saying that you've updated the script like this?if (this.rawValue == "1") myAddressField.presence = "visible";else myAddressField.presence = "hidden (exclude from layout)";The Designer UI show's the extra text for clarity, but in script you need to say "hidden" for the presence value. Valid options in script are "visible", "invisible" and "hidden". if that isn't the problem, perhaps you're field name isn't specified correctly (case matters), or perhaps you are missing a semi colon at the...

Hopefully this sample helps. Notice I have the dropdown list selected. Then I select the exit event in the script editor and add the following script. In Paul's example he specified the drop down fields name which is exactly right and in this case would be "DropDownList1" as seen in the hierarchy view below. However, I'm making use of a shortcut by using the "this" operator, which refers to the current field. If "White" is selected, then I will set the value of the field named TextField1 to "W12...

You can do this by adding a "change" script for the checkboxLet's say we drag on a text field and name it myAddressField. On the object palette, mark the presence property as hidden. Next drag on a check box field and add a change event script (if you can't see the script editor choose Window->Script Editor from the menus) and add the following scriptif (this.rawValue == "1") myAddressField.presence = "visible";else myAddressField.presence = "hidden";If you then do a PDF Preview, you can click o...

Hi,In Designer text fields have a property to limit the length of a field. If not specified, The XFA specification (http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/xml/xfa_spec_3_1.pdf) says their is no maximum.The maxChars propertyThis property specifies the maximum string length that this text value is permitted to occupy. The length is calculated by expressing the value as a string of [Unicode 3.2] code points packaged in the UTF-32 format, as defined by [UAX-19]. The absolute omission of this ...
