OK >> I solved it... SOLVED!!!!!The video indicates that you have HIGHLIGHT Fields setting active in Adobe Acrobat Pro/Reader - if you switch this off you will get the behaviour you expect. I'm not sure you will be in love with this solution (as it is difficult to ensure other users will switch off this setting) but -- staying on topic -- if you test my form again after switching HIGHLIGHT Fields off in Adobe Acrobat Pro/Reader it should perform exactly as you intend (assuming I've finally inter...

Re: Does download version of LiveCycle Designer ES4 include SP1?
Avatar

I can confirm that as of 2 months ago, the Adobe LCES Designer 11 installation requires the SP1 to be installed separately (I keep both .exe's together in the same folder and you only need you product key on hand for the LCD 11 install, not the subsequent SP1 install). Only then will the Version ID change to 11.0.1I'm not aware of any additional Service Packs released since the original. My cursory investigation of the background/purpose of SP1 indicates that it was primarily released to enable ...

use "Number Fields" from the object pallette (NOT text fields) - amend settings in Patterns > "allow zero" + set "currency{}" as data format.deleting field value will produce this display value "$0.00" and NOT " " [AKA 'empty field']

I've had this problem before (Large, Complex, Repeating Subforms) -- it's likely to be improved only with more efficient coding (and a series of other small tricks that can make a big difference). Your link is broken -- if you would still like to resolve this problem, I'd be happy to have a look at it for you..David

my guess is that the error relates to incorrent SOM path referencing.try this..script to be placed in target field ('Name') on the [initilize] eventthis.fillColor = "0,200,0"; // green

Re: Missing Preview Tab in LCD ES2

The preview tab is 'missing' where adobe LCDesigner is installed but Acrobat Pro (or Reader) is not installed. SOLUTION: You must install either Acrobat Pro (or Reader) -- then LiveCycle will show the preview tab. NOTE: Third-party [non-Adobe] PDF software will not 'play' PDF or XFA forms (this is another related reason the Preview Tab maybe missing)

Great news - progress is very much about incremental steps -- my understanding is little more than a function of the knowledge of others. Niall has been very generous in providing so many 'worked examples' for LC Designer practioners - visit his website, download some forms and your capabilities will expand massively !!www.assuredynamics.com

You probably need to run an 'if' statement (to cut out values below $25) AND THEN a 'for loop' to sum the remaining values >>If you can post a link your form, I'll have a crack at it for you..

I can't get my head around the correct approach to make the "accessKey" (SCRIPTING PROPERTY) work..I'm not even sure which form event / Obj event would host this 'scripting property'?Can anyone point me in the right direction?? (worked example OR just an example SOM path and advice on where to place code so it will work!)thank you Daviid
