LiveCycle Designer ES4 formula to count number of months between dates--including a calc for days=>15 means you count the month
Avatar

I'm working on a formula in Excel, to make sure the logic is correct -- but eventually I would like to put it into a LiveCycle Designer form. We count the actual number of months between two dates to calculate retention points for employment layoffs. If you work 15 or more days in a month, the month is counted. So, assuming non-leap year, if the start date is February 10, then February should be counted. If the start date is February 20, then February should not be counted. Most standard functio...

Dynamic LiveCycle Designer form. Throughout the form there are tables where users can click a button to add another line or remove the current line. When the form is complete, I have a button set to "hide" various items throughout the form (help text, save buttons, etc.) to clean it up for the final version. I also have a button set to redisplay all those items, in case we need to go back and change anything. The first "hide" button also displays one more button, and this button disables all the...

Screen reader not reading custom screen text for buttons, text objects (accessibility)

I have a dynamic PDF I've designed in LiveCycle Designer ES. I'm struggling with accessibility issues with JAWS. JAWS doesn't seem to be reading custom text at all -- just tool tips. If I don't have a tool tip, it reads the object caption even if I have custom text selected for the screen reader preference and custom screen reader text entered. This is a problem for buttons (not radio buttons, just buttons). I have buttons on my form that:* Give instructions about how to complete the form* Allow...

Did you find a solution? I have this exact issue -- and we're waaaaay down the road on deploying this new form. This is going to be a big problem if I can't resolve it.

I have a dynamic form with a table that uses a button with an instance manager to add rows and another to delete rows. The footer row has a field that calculates the total of fields in the rows above, and changes as the user enters entries, add/removes rows, changes entries. I would love to turn the text of the calculated total to red if it is <> 100, and back to black when it =100. I've tried all sorts of code in all sorts of events. Sometimes I can get the calculated total to turn red -- but t...

Chrome used the Adobe PDF plugin "before" ... I know there have been changes, but why would a form display "please wait," then saved by a user display a proper thumbnail, and then saved by another user display "please wait" again in the span of a few minutes?I have Adobe Acrobat DC set as my default PDF viewer.

I'm familiar with the issue with Chrome/Adobe compatibility. We've been telling users to download our new XFA form because it won't display properly in Chrome. We're used to seeing "please wait" on the attachment thumbnail.Today I received an email from a user with the XFA form attached ... but the thumbnail displays properly! When I download the form and open it, it's still dynamic and everything looks like every other version anyone has saved.I changed some fields on the version that displayed...

This question has been asked on here a few times, but I don't see an answer. I have some fields on my form that I want to have more explanation in the accessibility tag for screen readers than I would in a tool tip. I also have some fields that don't need a tool tip, but do need custom text for the screen reader. When I set custom text for a field, that text is showing up as a tool tip. Is there a way to:1. Have different text for custom screen reader text than the tool tip text?2. Have text in ...

I had some mandatory fields on my form. I also have script on a button that checks for mandatory fields, highlights them if empty, and displays an error message telling the user to go complete the field(s). The user clicks the button again once the fields are complete, and the highlighting is removed. I have about a million versions of this form as we tweak various things, and suddenly the system highlighting for the mandatory fields was interfering in the middle of completing the form.

Scripting button to print LiveCycle form (XML) to PDF - getting "Access denied" error

I have a dynamic form that goes through a workflow. When the workflow is done and the form is complete, I need the final user to "finalize" it by printing it to PDF so that the dynamic properties are removed. We store these PDFs in a system that can't work with dynamic PDFs. When I place a print button, clicking the button does bring up a print dialog box. However, when I choose "Adobe PDF" as my printer, it says "Access denied." When I try to print that version by clicking File/Print/Adobe PDF ...

When radio button selected, populate text field with user-entered text from another field

I have a radio button list with five choices. When the second button (called update, value is 2) is checked, I want the text that the user enters in field one to populate text field two. I can't figure out the Javascript. Action Builder has a "set value of field to another field" option, but that isn't working when I add that condition to the click trigger of the radio button.

BR001 has the right answer - thanks Bruce. I remember seeing that blog post when I was designing this form and looking for something else. I got the borders to be hidden, but then it hid the left side border as well -- I wanted that one to remain visible. I messed around with it, but I can't get the code right to hide the top, bottom, right and display left, so I'm just going to leave it alone. No one cares except me that the border appears. I've tried adding a left side border to basically all ...

The very first form I created in LiveCycle Designer has a "check form" button with code to check mandatory fields. If the fields aren't completed, a message box appears and the field is highlighted in red. Once the field is completed and the user clicks the check form button again, the red highlighting disappears. I've just noticed that on the first mandatory field (which is actually a radio button list), after the user completes it and clicks the check form button again, it puts a border around...

I have a LiveCycle Designer dynamic PDF I've designed with two places for two different digital signatures. The form is reader enabled. Both signatures are in dynamic sections of the form, that may or may not be required depending on the answers to the questions above those subforms. I do have the signatures set to lock only "their" section, and not all the fields in the form. The user who would sign in the first subform is reporting he receives a "FieldMDP" error when he tries to apply his digi...

That didn't work -- no message box popped up when my script looked like this--went straight to print dialog box: form1::prePrint - (JavaScript, client)xfa.host.message box ("This is my message. ", "Do not print", 3);I don't want to completely disable printing -- at the very, very end, when everything is completed, they can print a hard copy for a file if they want. I just don't want them to print it and start doing the worklow "offline."

I don't have a "print" button programmed on my form. We want users to save it (I do have "save" buttons) and forward the interactive PDF to others who have sections to complete via email. I have users who, despite education, help links, a general pop up window they can click on for instructions, etc., are printing the form, completing it by hand, scanning it as a new static PDF, and forwarding it -- thus eradicating the interactive commands. Is there a way to program a message box to pop up when...
