FYI, the videos on the new site (when I finally found them) are also out of order. This appears to be the same videos as on the old site (with several missing), although I couldn't get any of them to actually play to confirm that. As before, there is no sign of the code snippets that are supposed to be used with the course.

re: " Seems to ignore the VarChoice script"You might have misread what I typed. That should be 2 words, "var" and "choice". The "var" stands for "variable" and means that what follows next is the name of a new variable. The name of the variable is "choice".Could you copy and paste the script here, so I can see what you have entered?

Ah! Yes, that's probably it. You'll need to mark those fields as "hidden" in the prePrint event as well.

Are you saving it as an "Adobe Dynamic XML Form"? If you're saving it as a static PDF, it won't work.Try testing it out on a new form (just a few checkboxes in a flowed subform) and confirm that you can get it to work there, then see whether you can get it to work in your real form.

Re: Creating Icon Buttons - is it possible?

Apparently no. I did find this thread which has a workaround: Re: building a custom buttonApparently the idea is to place an image, then place a button on top of the image, then edit the button to have no caption, border, or background color, so that the image behind it shows through. A kludge, but it might be your only option.

You said you "Wrapped each box in a flowed subform". Just to make sure there's no confusion here, all of the checkboxes are together in ONE flowed subform, not each checkbox alone in their OWN subform, right? Just checking.Using .relevant = "-print" prevents the object from being printed, but does NOT cause it to stop using up space in the layout. .presence = "hidden" does the latter, so try using that. You'll then need to have .presence = "visible" in the corresponding script for the postPrint ...

This probably isn't the answer you're looking for, but the only solution that occurs to me is to mark the file as read-only in Windows. (Right-click, select Properties from the menu, select the Read-only checkbox, then click OK.) That would prevent Acrobat from overwriting it with the filled-in version. I'm not aware of anything within Acrobat itself to accomplish this, but maybe someone else has a better idea.

Yes, LiveCycle Designer does JavaScript, as well as FormCalc. Just make sure that the Language drop-down at the top of the script window says "JavaScript" rather than "FormCalc". If it doesn't, change it.You had left off the closing curly brace at the end, and you were trying to use the node name rather than the variable name in the if statement. The code would need to be more like this:var choice = this.resolveNode("RAConcur.Comments").rawValue;if (choice == 1) { this.presence = "visible";}If t...

First, you need to have the fields within a sub-form where the Content is set to "Flowed" rather than "Positioned". That way, when a field is "hidden", the other fields will move up to fill the space.Next, for each of the checkboxes, you should add some JavaScript code to the prePrint event that make the field hidden if it is checked, something like this:if (this.rawValue == 1) { this.presence = "hidden";}Lastly, for each of the fields you will need some JavaScript in the postPrint event to disp...

Are you saying that, when you open the form after having saved it with the checkbox checked, the hidden subform isn't visible until you uncheck and recheck the checkbox?If so, you can add some JavaScript code to the initialize event of the subform, which will be triggered when the form is first opened. It can then check whether the checkbox is checked and make the field visible if it is, something like this:if (Checkbox1.rawValue == 1) { this.presence = "visible";}

I have the same issue, but I hadn't thought of that scenario until I read your question, so thank you!You can add some JavaScript code to the initialize event of the comment field, which will be triggered when the form is first opened. It can then check whether the radio button is checked and make the field visible if it is, something like this:var choice = this.resolveNode("RadioButtons.Choices").rawValue;if (choice == 1) { this.presence = "visible";}

Increasing indent in lists sometimes does not work. Why not?

Here's the scenario. Suppose I want to have a list with some sub-lists, like this:PlanesJetsPropsTrainsPassengerFreightAutomobilesSee those sub-lists? Sometimes I cannot create them. I start with this:PlanesJetsPropsTrainsPassengerFreightAutomobilesI click on the "Jets" line, then click the Increase Indent button, and nothing happens. Why not? In most cases it will work, but sometimes it does not.I have found a few causes that consistently prevent it from working:If the line of text is long enou...

Bulk Upload PDF Forms to AEM Repository

We recently began using Adobe LiveCycle and Adobe Experience Manager. We're not using AEM for our web site, however. We're just wanting to use the Forms Portal portion of it to allow us to organize our forms, tag them, etc, then provide a searchable interface.We have several hundred pre-AEM/LiveCycle PDF forms. Rather than manually uploading one PDF file at a time, we would like to do a bulk upload into the repository.If I remember correctly, I saw someone do this using CRXDE Lite, navigating to...
