Just a quick question on whether or not anyone here is using version 2.5? I have been looking everywhere and can find very little information on what the new features (If any) are. Was thinking about upgrading, but am not really sure if its worth the time, or whether I should just wait. thanks

This is what I haveI am trying to make a action take place only if the value of a radioButton is 3,4,5. And something else entirely if the value is 1,2. I am still kinda new to this, so don't be too hard on me. But here are a couple examples of what I have been trying to do. What am I doing wrong?if(radioButton.rawValue =...

Easy question for someone. Hard question for me. I have been trying to have a textField display the display value of a DropDown thats been populated with a script based on a radio button selection. I am having trouble having the text field display anything other then the value of the dropDown selection. I have tried the "value" instead of rawValue but am having no luck. Can anyone help me?

Okay I have read lots of very confusing information about emailing a pdf from a form. All I know is mine does not work. It says acrobat is unable to connect to my email program when the email button is clicked. I am sure I need to set that up somehow, but I have no idea how to do that. Is it possible to set up a email based program such as Yahoo or gmail? Or will it have to be outlook? Through out my search for information on this topic I came across the different methods of using email in a PDF...

Okay, I have a pdf I have created that has multiple fields that are set to hidden in the docReady command. Those fields are displayed only when certain events take place and are sometimes hidden again after another event takes place. The problem I am having (Or the question I am asking) is how would I keep the form from hiding those fields again when the completed form is opened later on as a reference in adobe reader. For example... My customer information field is set to hidden (To avoid clutt...

I am working in the hierarchy and re-naming fields names for reference when pointing to them in scripts. Everything has been working fine for days now. Now for some reason I cannot re-name an object. I am allowed to highlight the object, delete the existing text, and re-type the new name for the field. But for some reason when I click on something else the object goes back to its original name. I have also tried right clicking and change the name there as well as in the binding tab. But still no...

Okay nevermind.... I got it. I just changed the data format to integer in the binding tab of the Numeric Field and it worked. (Almost) it just rounds down to the lowest whole number. But Thats okay with me. Thanks

okay, I am not very good with this. That command is new to me. Where would I place that script if I already have a javascript script in the calculate event of that numeric field I am trying to get rounded up?I basically have the javascript code in the numeric fields calculate event set tothis.rawValue = subform1.numericField1.rawValue;I tried putting your script on the change event hoping I could use formCalc there but get a error when testing saying Ceil is not defined. Thanks

okay trying a different approach. How would I delete all instances in a repeatable subform that has independent delete buttons for each line. I think that you refer to all instances with the [*]. But that must not be right because I keep getting an error when trying to put in into a line of code. Can anyone tell me what the best way would be. I can get it to delete one instance by making the raw value 0. thanks

Yeah I did that 100 times thinking something is wrong. It does not recognize a problem, but yet the calculations still do not work. I am not getting any errors when I test the form. It just plain wont work I am going to keep plugging at it until I find a work around. Thanks though for your time... I am persistent, I will get it

I think I found a way to make it work without an else statement by putting the script into the numeric field where the calculations are to be done. I must be doing something wrong though because its not working even when it seems like it should.. grrr Here is my best shot at it. if(carpetSUB.width15.rawValue ==1) // width15 is the checkBox, carpetSUB is the subform the checkbox is located in {this.rawValue = cost15wide * qty15wide;}else{this.rawValue = "0.00";}Okay so why is it not working?

Okay I am getting pretty good at the "if" statement and the "else" statement as well. But what do I do if I need 2 conditions to be met before something is done on my form. I am going to do my best to explain what it is I am trying to do. I want radio2 to change its value to 2 when radio1 has a value of 2. But radio1 performs a different calculation in numericfield1 then radio2 does in numericfield2.basically what I am doing is designing an estimate guide for a flooring business. (Working on the...

Yeah I am curious as well if this can be done. But I would be more interested in a submit button that would not open the users email client. How would you use a submit button that would send an email to me from the server that hosts my webpage? Is that possible? Or is the topic way off the topic of this forum?

Okay thanks for that. But are there stipulations to that code working? Like being a dynamic form? I am not sure what I am doing wrong. The code does not work in what I am doing for some reason. And just to make sure it was not the code, I started a new form and did some basic fields (radioButtons and Numeric fields) The code worked fine there. I have looked it all over in the form I am trying to put this code into for hours now and nothing comes to me. The "0" does show up in the numeric field w...

I am wondering if anyone can give me some help. I am trying to make a calculation script that I can insert into a number field that will only calculate when a radio button is checked. I am trying to do an estimate sheet that when certain check boxes or radio buttons are selected (Such as moving furniture, pulling up old flooring) it will calculate an additional charge based on that selection. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a dynamic form with several content areas that are hidden until certain options are checked. Upon opening the form it is 1 page long, but can easily spread out to 3 pages or more after fields are filled. I want to be able to have content placed at the bottom of each page such as a customers name. I have tried the pagination overflow trailer (Which I figured out has to be a subform that trails) But the problem I am having is that instead of placing it at the bottom of the page it places th...

It was working great until now. Quick question, can the values assigned to the item be empty? I mean between "". And if not can those values have question marks? Maybe thats why I am having trouble with it. I have nine of those drop downs that are referencing 1 to 4 different check boxes. But for some reason, no matter what the selection is it auto defaults to the first selection in the group assigned to one check box

Okay I know a way around this but its rather long with what I know. I have been working on a better solution for a day now. So maybe (or probably) someone knows a better way. I am trying to populate a drop down box based on a user selection is in a list of check boxes. I know I could create several drop down lists and hide them until the user changes the binding value. But the drop down lists would consume lots of space on my design form in liveCycle. So is there another way or am I stuck doing ...

I think I figured it out, I just did a test of it. but maybe I did it by accident. form some reason when I created a second drop down list and named it the same as the first one. The second drop down displayed the value set in the binding tab of the first objects script..?!?!?! Was not the result I thought it would be. I guess that might be normal, but I thought for sure it would display the selection text and not the value.

Okay thats perfect! But I can see that it displays only the text which is the selection of the drop down list. The code for that is getDisplayItem Which I assume is the text that is displayed when you click on the drop down in acrobat. But how would I get it to display an item number of my choosing? Thanks again. Oh by the way, you really know your stuff Niall. Did you go to school for this or did you pick it up along the way?

I probably need to explain what it is I am trying to do first. It might not even be possible the way I am trying to do it. So if there is a better way, please do help. But I am trying to have items listed in a drop down list. Specifically items that are different lengths with different item numbers. I have been using the value of the items to do simple calculations for labor. But I also want it so that once an item is selected the item prints to a materials list later on in the form.
