Thanks Arvind . I tried it the way you suggested, but it did not work. I looked at the code again and noticed that my variable 'partNo' and the Function call 'whSize' were switched backwards... So instead of... if (partNo[i] == whSize) which is what I needed... and changed toand if(whSize[i] == partNo) what I had originallyonce I changed to the top one, it worked like a charm. I didn't know that this would make a difference Your examples caused me to think outside the box and give consideration ...

I am not new to Livecycle Designer but I am trying my hand at learning JavaScript programming so that I can utilize it in my forms to make them more robust and powerful.

Could someone help me understand what I am doing wrong in getting the description and price fields not working (The description and price fields will not populate)? T...

Hello everyone. As I navigate through my book learning, I have stumbled across another curveball I use the book Adobe LC Designer by JP Terry and the sample files. The sample file that I'm struggling with at the current time is the "purchaseorder.xdp".My first issue is how was the 'partNoScript' variable object built? I know how to go in and add the variables via the form properties dialog, but don't have a clue how to build these object variables into the form in this manner.Beyond that, I beli...

Arvind, thank you very much for the offer of help. I have been messing around with the designer for quite a few years with good success… but not GREAT success. I am trying to learn JavaScript programming so that I can implement THAT into my designs but I have only scratched the surface so far. As you have seen from my email, I have what appears to be a very basic problem (one that I should be able to figure out by myself, but can’t). If you are WILLING, I actually have 2 issues, the original one...

Thank you for your reply. Those settings were correct already. I believe my script is correct, but I cannot understand what else might be preventing the table from expanding. Any other ideas or willingness to peek at my form to see if you see a problem?Thanks.Mike

I have a form that we have been using for quite some time. It works, but the annoying part is that when a reviewer opens it up, it returns a script failed error. It is a simple if, elseIf statement and as I stated previously, the statement works, but what I'm trying to avoid is the error from populating the screen when viewed by my review team. Any ideas on how to avoid this would be greatly appreciated. This occurs regardless of design software (ES3 or 4).Thank you very much.

A couple years ago I found an article to help with this problem...however, that article is now history.What I have is a text box with some text. On one of the lines, I need to have a Text Field or something else that will grow in the 'X coordinate' when the input is larger than the field. I also need the text sitting to the right of the Text Field to move to the right, assuming the input into the field is larger than the initial size.

When I select the preview in HTML5 tab in Designer, an error states that I must verify my settings under options/server options.

Actually I have two questions; one a code javascript question and the other a functionality question. First, I am adding fields to an imported PDF (5 fields). I have setup the XSD and XML files. I saved the form the only way it would let me (static PDF). I then reopen the file in Adobe Pro, attempt to import the data from the XML, but all I get is the FIRST record; nothing else. What I'm trying to do is create multiple PDF's from the XML data. Is there a way to create multiple records this way s...

I have a form that I imported into Livecycle Designer (one used by the US Government). I can add some of the objects to the form, while the others are blanked out. What I'm trying to do is design a form that I can import data into. When I bind an object to the form and then "attempt" to script it using "xfa.host.sourceSet.dataconnection.next(); The object manager does not recognize sourceSet. In other words as I type my command line, once I type the period after host, sourceSet is not available ...

Vijay, your solutions have worked GREAT. I now have another challenge... I added some script to the steak check box to make the quantity value = 0 if the check box is unchecked. It works.. as long as I do not add multiple instances.. For instance... I add the first steak and then UNselect the check box and the total cost goes BACK to 0. If I instead another instance of the steak (2 entries) and then UNselect the check box, it will only ZERO the first entry, leaving the second one in the calculat...

Vjay, I apologize for bothering you again. Could I appeal to you to look at the file again and tell me what I'm doing wrong with the math on the total cost? I want to calculate all the instances (up to 6) of steak dinners. I thought my FormCalc script looked fine but for some reason it is not working (does not add the multiple instances)Thank you very much and please know that if I am bothersome, you can tell me.Thank you very much in advance!!Best regards,Mike

Hello everyone. I have an issue trying to figure out how to design a particular script... I have a check box that will unhide a subform. Once the subform is present, there is a numeric field asking for a quantity, there is a drop down box that asks the user to select either 8oz or 12oz and then there is a final numeric field that will calculate the total. My problem is how to calculate my total based off the selected weight and quantity. When the form becomes visible, the user will enter a quant...

I have a Livecycle form that I designed with several subforms (all hidden from layout). All the subforms work correctly and appear when prompted by the form user. The problem is that when the form is saved, the previously "unhidden" subforms do not appear when reopened. Essentially, the form opens as designed but hides the subforms that were previously rendered and saved. Any ideas on what I might have done wrong? I have several other forms utilizing the same design technique, but am willing to ...

Mr. Moore, below is the link to the file. I wasn't too sure whether to share or provide a link... I did the link. If this doesn't work, then if you don't mind, provide me your email and I'll share it with you via the Workspace using your email... the email program I'm using does not do a decent job of conveying actual email... it is real good at displaying your nickname though.Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you.https://workspaces.acrobat.com/?d=WFqSDlaUie3Z8LeLrhZ4XgMike
