Hello againIt would probably be sensible to document this properly in the LiveCycle documentation.

I now have this working.You can use the following line of code in the validate event:event.rc = falseThanks for your help (I assumed you meant that the function should return true or false).Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the reply, however this doesn't work.I am returning true (or false) from the Validate event, and have set the Validation Script Message appropriately.After entering a value in the field, nothing happens.RegardsGeoff Olding

Hello thereIs it possible to use a Javascript function to validate a field, rather than use the “Validation Pattern” approach? I am OK to write the function, however I also want to be able to use it with the Form Level Validation Settings (having the function run again when the form submits etc.).I have seen references to the “Run custom validation script” option on a Validate tab, however I don’t see these.I am using LiveCycle Designer 9. Many thanksGeoff Olding

(I only want to do standard stuff like making sections visible and invisible etc.). I will also want to submit all the form data in one ...

HiI am trying to call a function from a timer using the following code:var mTimer;function testTimer(){ mTimer = app.setInterval( "runTimer()", 1000 );}function runTimer(){ app.clearInterval(mTimer); app.alert("timer run");}The function runTimer() simply doesn't run.The only way I can get the timer to work is with a line like this:mTimer = app.setInterval( "app.alert('test')", 1000 );However, calling a function doesn't work. The code is in a global module. It doesn't work with anything I try, su...

Hello thereWhat is the best\recommended way to submit data (as XML) from a pdf to a LiveCycle process? I am using LiveCycle version 9.If you use a standard HTTP post, it looks like you have to write some besoke software (outside of LiveCycle) on your server to accept the posted data, and to pass on this data to LiveCycle using the LiveCycle process’s web service end point.If you use a WSDL data connection, it looks like you have to copy the whole of the data to and from a bound field on the form...
