I just moved my team's DEV environment from Windows 7 to Windows 10. After you preview from Designer or Acrobat/Reader, I noticed that when you open the debugger (Ctrl-J), there is a progress bar for loading the script, and it will take about 20 seconds to complete. This was not the case under Windows 7. This is consistent across all the developers' PCs. Any idea of how to turn off the loading of the script when you open the Debugger?

I think I understand your approach, and it is certainly a valid one. I am just concerned that it requires more work. I will try first using a dummy read-only button that will cover a larger area than the inner subform of the popup itself, and place the dummy button at the top of the popup. I have tried something else, that is on exit of the popup subform, set-focus on an element inside the popup, it seems like it is working, but UX not so good..

Yes, this is one of the correct methods, however, it is hard to implement, since I need to keep a manual list of all overlapping elements, and save the "access" property status before showing the popup, and restore the saved value after hiding the popup. And, everytime I move the popup, I have to modify the list of overlapping elements, and, I have to create a list for each template. Do you have an idea of how to get a list of overlapping elements of a given subform in a parent subform? If there...

I am checking if there is a method to prevent clicking outside the subform (dialog ...

I spent a lot of time on this issue... I tried to install the VaultClipse plugin for Eclipse, but all my efforts went in vain. I then was told by Adobe support that this plugin is old and will not work. They recommended me to use AEM Dev Tools Plugin under Eclipse for syncing source code related to Maven Archetypes (for Java Classes and Bundles), and for all the other source code (Sites, Adaptive Forms, and Client Libs...etc...), we can use AEM Brackets Editor with the AEM Plugin to sync the nee...

After I followed the instructions from "https://github.com/adobe/aem-project-archetype", I installed the mysite JAR bundle, and nothing showed up on CRXDE. Also, when I clicked on the bundle name from system console, I see a couple of errors such as "com.day.cq.wcm.api,version=[1.29,2) -- Cannot be resolved" and "org.apache.sling.api.resource,version=[2.12,3) -- Cannot be resolved". I appreciate your help.

I have done the following:- Developed Adaptive Form with navigation tabs on the left- Used fragments and implemented a lazy loading- In my code, I can detect navigation changes using guideBridge events- The fragment will be loaded lazily, and the guideBridge event "elementLazyLoaded" is triggered when the user clicks on the relevant tab, and the data get loaded successfully only for that fragment. All is working like a charm. Problem: I noticed when the user switches the navigation from one frag...

Just download the JAR Connector/J file from the MySQL Download page, unzip the file and use the filename which has "-bin" in it. Also, make sure the AEM machine can connect to the MySQL Machine using "telnet" command. Or try to run a query from the AEM Machine to MySQL using any Query Tool installed on AEM Machine. Make sure to verify all configuration related to the driver and data source in the AEM web console. I used the latest 5.1.x version from here:https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector...

You said, "we"? Are you referring to Adobe? or some other company? And the point is to find an article or document that describes how to build a component for AEM Forms.

Yes, we already have the needed license. But I don't see a File Upload Component that allows you to see the image after upload. You can use a File Attachment Component. After you attach the image, it will show a paper clip. Then, you have to click on the paper click to see the image. I want an option to show the image as a thumbnail with original quality. This is because the use case we are working on needs to allow inserting many images and maintain the original high quality of the uploaded fil...

Thanks a lot. Is this the same as developing a component? I am looking for a solution that provides a component that you can drag-and-drop onto the form that provides the image file upload function.

You have options, but there will be limitations. We faced similar problems before, and the main problem was how to use the XFA/XDP designs in an alternative Designer. You can find an alternative, but you have to live with the following limitations: 1. Re-design from scratch all the designed forms based on the newly chosen designer tool2. Cannot use the designs for a Dynamic PDF and Data Entry.3. Use the designs to render the output in static PDF only. Dynamic results are limited only by the new ...

If you develop a process in LiveCycle Workbench that as a script object or step, does this mean that this step will be single-threaded? Or multi-threaded? Or it can be configured?What is the impact in case it is single-threaded? It will slow other processes if it will run on the server part of a long batch job for example? How this should affect my decision to use or not to use a script step and use a Java component instead? This is because I was told that using components means it is guaranteed...

We have developed logic to check if the XFA JavaScript is running on the server, it will load the original image with high-quality in order to flatten the PDF with the original image. We noticed that, on the flattened PDF, the image will stretch beyond the image field borders if the size is bigger than the dimensions set in Designer.The logic will execute a webservice on one of the document events such as Doc Ready, Form Ready, Layout Ready, server side only. We tried all such events. This web s...

Thanks Bruce! There are more than 1000 fields, it'll be very hard to do such mapping. I am looking for a solution to automate this or at least introduce a step to minimize the manual work.Steps I am thinking of:1. Write XSL to map the structure and leave field names as is. Looks like this is doable.2. Prepare a table in Excel Sheet to map the field names from 1st XML to the 2nd XML. It'll be simple two columns table.3. Apply find/replace using the table rows in 2 above as input. I can write a pr...

I think i can manage to write XSLT to perform the transformation. However, I am facing the following difficulties:1. The image fields are located in another element. I mean, you have to do another lookup to find the image Base64 data. For example, the image field in the XML above app_rep2/appraisal/form[@name="photo1"]/tag[@name="PHOTO1"] is pointing to "../../../attachments/attachment[@key='267463fa-0073-4c10-83d6-fd8141641b72']" which has the image data and possibly some other details.

We are so far stuck with Adobe LiveCycle ES4. For the purpose of this post, I am referring to Workbench and Designer.The source code control that is built-in to Workbench is very primitive, and has no compare/merge capabilities. There is an issue with getting an old version from the history if the file is large. the bottom line, it is very hard for multiple developers to work on a project simultaneously. If you forget to synchronize before you check-out, the changes of the developer who worked b...
