BUG: Sorting drop-down lists from the field tab when using "specify item values" - Adobe LiveCycle 29-04-2009
Hi all,I've finished creating my form now, but I came across this whilst writing up my documentation for maintenance tasks.This occurs when adding new values to a drop-down list that has the "Specify item values" checkbox in the binding tab checked.When I then try to sort my list using the built in sort buttons, it will sort the items, but the list of specified values in the binding tab does not sort reorder to stay with the original items in the list. This is hapenning when I sort from the Obje...

drop-down list formattedValue returning value, not text - Adobe LiveCycle 20-02-2009
Hi all, I'm having a problem with a drop-down list. I can get the information I want in Reader 9, but we only have Reader 7.0.5 distributed at the moment. I need to pull out its text value and its specified value, but everything I try just pulls out the specified value. In Reader 9 formattedValue gives me the text and rawValue will give me the specified value. Anyone able to help me please? Thanks, Tom

Re: Strange Wrong Number Output - Adobe LiveCycle 13-02-2009
OK, just had a play around.Make sure it is set the same in the edit tab.I have mine set in Display, Edit and Validation and it is working fine. But when it was in Display and Validation it was adding on the extra digit when I was inside the field (disappeared when I left.)I have no idea about the 3d2 thing though, sorry.Tom

Re: Strange Wrong Number Output - Adobe LiveCycle 13-02-2009
I would say that the pattern the field is using is wrong.If all numbers must be 14 digits, followed by a decimal point and then another 2 digits the pattern should be:num{99999999999999.99}If it can be a maximum of 14 usenum{zzzzzzzzzzzzz9.99}9 forces there to be a character, so you will get 00000000000000,00 but z allows a blank character so you can get 0.00.Check all of the validation pattern tabs to make sure they are all the same.Hope this helps,Tom

Re: Returning true / false when using scripts in the validate event - Adobe LiveCycle 10-02-2009
Steve,By wrapping the execute in an if statement you can tell if it managed to execute correctly or failed.if (this.parent.parent.execValidate()) {this.parent.parent.presence = "hidden";Question2.presence = "visible";xfa.host.setFocus("Header.FocusField");}Will only move on to the next question if the form addressed(this.parent.parent) has validated correctly.The problem I am having is that I wanted to use the validate event to check if a field contained a valid entry.http://livedocs.adobe.com/l...

Returning true / false when using scripts in the validate event - Adobe LiveCycle 09-02-2009
Hi all,I'm using a script in teh validate event to determine a false or true response and then when all the checking has been done I use:if (matchFound) {return true;}However this is coming up with the error message:Error: Illegal 'return' outside of a function body, Line:21Now obviously this means my return is in the wrong place, but where should it go? How can you pass on that a validate script, inside the event, has failed when using execValidate?Many thanks,Tom
