Can the HTML Workspace Be Customized/Extended? JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
I've done an extensive amount of Flex development in the past and have done a lot of Flex Workspace customization even going as far as adding entirely new sections or removing existing sections. However, I'd like to customize the HTML Workspace by adding a new section. I've found a good amount of documentation on how to "customize" the HTML Workspace by editinng the CSS or updating JSON files to change/add/remove labels, etc but I have found nothing on how to do any real customizations such as a...

Re: Fragments and Data Binding JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
It looks like the Fragment doesn't like that there isn't a root node available in its schema. When I just opened the Fragment in Designer, it complained there's no root node. The problem is, I don't think I can have a root node such as an element as it won't let me reference elements from the parent schema - only simple and complex types.

Re: Fragments and Data Binding JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
So I have the data being captured now appropriately with one of the fragment's schemas being imported into the parent schema but when I go to update the formData asset in Workbench by editing the variable and clicking "Import Asset", it won't let me save the variable telling me that the XML schema is invalid. Here's the schema: Note that the schemaLocation value has been replaced with #XFAXSDReference" when I actually have it in the schema as the correct path to the schema (and it wo...

Fragments and Data Binding JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
AllI have a use case where there needs to be a parent form that will contain a number of children sections. Now I know I could just have one giant schema and have all of these child sections as subforms, etc. However, I'm trying to make use of fragments as they seem like they might be a decent fit here. However, I keep running into snags. Here are the issues I'm seeing:1) When I submit the form in Workspace, none of the data entered into either fragment is captured in the XML2) When I attempt to...

Re: Way to invoke pattern validation in script JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
As a follow-up on this conversation, I don't know of a way to see if a particular field passed a validation pattern after running execValidate(). As a best practice, I would highly recommend regular expressions for validations. I don't personally find the validation patterns built into the fields to be terribly useful considering how much more power you have at your disposal with Javascript. One of the first things I do for every client I'm at when developing a form is build out (or copy from a ...

Unfortunately I can't provide an LCA because it's a proprietary HR system in use here. I know the fix to my issue was to remove the circular dependencies but I have bothered to dive any further than that to see exactly what the issue was. I can provide, however, that we are using an LCES2.5 turnkey installtion with JBoss and MySql on a 32bit JVM (this particular issue was in our dev environment that runs on 32 bit). One thing to consider is that while our dev environment is using a 32bit JVM and...

Re: Unable to Deploy Applications: "process is not defined in the descriptor" JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Just wanted to follow up on the solution to my issue.It appears the issue centers around circular far dependencies. In general, it seems LiveCycle chokes when two applications each reference one another. Note that I'm not talkinng about true circular referencing here wherein one process within application A references a process in application B while that same process refers back to the original process in application A. In fact, although I haven't tested recently, I believe LiveCycle may actual...

Re: Unable to Create New Application Version: StringOutOfBoundsException JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Thanks for the response. I took a look through the guidelines and it doesn't appear to address anything of interest with respect to my problem.As to dependencies, yes, there are 6 total applications and there are far dependencies between many of them. The application in question does have a far dependency with one other application that holds a number of utility orchestrations leveraged in many places.

I checked out that utility and, unfortunately, it's generating a bunch of Java errors after configuring it to be used. Further, I'm not sure it's the direction I need to head. I'm trying to do what I feel is something very simple in that I want to take an LCA from one environment and import that LCA in another environment. Then I simply want to deploy the applications so they can be used. That is where it's failing and the error it's telling me is that [Some process name].process is not defined ...

Re: Showing XML Data Retrieved via Web Service within a Form JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
The XML is actually coming from a Query Multiple Rows as XML service call within an orchestration and therefore takes the following form: Some Value A Some Value B Some Value C Some Value D I played around with a bit and didn't see a good way to address it. I've since just written up some Javascript to parse it and stuff the table but if you find a good way to bind it up straight in, perhaps by loading the XML into the data DOM, let me know!Thanks!

Re: Problem converting word 2010 Document JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
I haven't found an actual "solution" to this issue just yet but I did find a workaround that at least gets us halfway there. It appears that PDF conversion of Word documents is now built-in with Word 2010. You can simply save out any Word document as a PDF and it'll do the conversion for you. What this does NOT do for us, however, is generate editable fields on the resulting PDF.I'll keep looking into it.

Re: Problem converting word 2010 Document JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
I have just run into this issue myself. At first I thought it might be that LiveCycle is not yet fully compatible with Office 2010 but after doing some googling it seems there are plenty of folks out there successfully converting Word 2010 documents to PDF.As a temporary workaround, you could try a copy of an earlier version of Word should one be available to you.If I'm able to find a solution to the issue, I'll let you know promptly.Josh Boylejboyle@cardinalsolutions.comCardinal Solutions Group

Re: Validation on Exit prevents window closing. JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Hmmm that's an interesting dilemma for sure!Here's a workaround you can try:1) Create a hidden field on your form (i.e. txtField)2) On the Exit event of each field needing to be validated, set txtField.rawValue to this.name (this.name will get you the node's name)3) On the Change event of txtField, have a simple script similar to as follows:xfa.resolveNode(this.rawValue).execValidate();The above should force the validate event to fire even when leaving the field without editing it at all.As an a...

Hey Legallogic!What kind of values will the drop-downs have? As for the output field, what kind of values would it have? In other words, are you wanting to add all the values of drop-down lists to the output field as a comma-separated list (i.e. value1,value2,value3)?

Re: Flatten a PDF files when you press the submitt button JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Hey rweastmanir!As a simple workaround, I might recommend having a hidden field on your form. In the preSubmit event (client side), I would set this field to some easily testable value like "1" or "DONE". Then, you could just add a script to the initialize event of the form's root node that tests the value of that field. If the value is "1" or "DONE" then set all the fields to "readOnly".Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions!Josh BoyleCardinal Solutions Groupjboyle@cardinalsol...

Hey Legallogic!I'm not 100% certain I understand what you are struggling with but I'd be happy to help. If you could provide an alternate explanation of your issue I'll take a look and help you solve it. What I *think* you're asking about is in reference to the test case of a switch statement. Typically a switch would be used to test the value of one particular variable, so:switch (varTest){ case "A": //Do something here break; case "B": //Do something else here break; default: //Do something co...

Re: Validation on Exit prevents window closing. JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Hey Kyle!The Validate and Calculate events are both responsive events meaning that they always fire in response to other events. When you exit a field, the Validate event for that field should fire. My recommendation would be to leverage the Validate event for your validation as opposed to the Exit event and to ensure that each Validate event is set to run client-side (select "client" from the "Run At" option within the script window.I apologize in advance if you are already familiar with the Va...

Re: Way to invoke pattern validation in script JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Hello drcaesar-21qe0k!Any form node (Text Field, Drop-down List, etc) has a method you can invoke called "execValidate". This method invokes both the pattern and the script validation for the given node - in that order. If you had a form with a text field entitled txtTest for which you would like to run the pattern validation on, you would simply type:txtTest.execValidate();Please let me know if you have any questions!Josh Boylejboyle@cardinalsolutions.comCardinal Solutions Group

Re: Transaction Management using JDBC service JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
Hello Amit!It is true that LiveCycle 8.2's JDBC service has on built-in exception handling. This has been remedied in 9.0 as there are now several exception types that can be handled.If I understand correctly, your trouble comes with the lack of transaction management around the existing JDBC service within LiveCycle. To this I can only recommend that any SQL statements needing to be run with transaction management be done so within an executeScript service. I have, on many, many occasions, util...

Suppressing Warning and Error Dialogs in 8.2 JoshDBoyle-DVzR - Adobe LiveCycle
AllI am looking into whether or not it is possible to suppress warning and error dialogs within a form created by LiveCycle Designer 8.2. I am aware this functionality is easily configurable within ES2 - which is the driver behind why I would like to get it working in some form within 8.2. Essentially, I would like no dialog boxes to appear unless explicitly done so via script.Any ideas?
