Background info:I am using LiveCycle Designer ES2.I have 4 fields - three radio button groups with 3 items each; and one numeric field that calculates the sum of the 3 radio button group values.Each radio button group has the same 3 items:"Claimed" with a value of 10; This means the person is reimbursed this amount."Provided" with a value of 0; and This means the meal was provided at the event, and the person is not reimbursed."N/A" also with a value of 0. This means the meal is not eligible to ...

Thanks for the support. Not having a caption for a radio button group also makes it impossible to use the FLOWED content on a subform too! I've had to get really creative to find a work-around for this.

Well drats! We were hoping to be able to split the exported XML data into 4 separate packets and e-mail each packet separately. Back to the drawing board! Thanks Paul.

The submit button includes ALL the PDF's fields in the XML file it generates. Is it possible to pick and choose the fields that are used to create this XML file? If yes, how please?

Data field has been dropped off XML file

I have a drop-down list (Department) that has a number of arrays that populates another drop-down list (Division). The Department is also linked to a script object (variable). They work perfectly.However when I export the data to an XML file via a submit button, the Department field is not included. Just the Division field data. I have tried moving the fields around, in and out of subforms but nothing seems to work.Does anyone have an idea why this is happening and how I might correct it please?

Okay, I guess no-one knows what the problem is. Since I'm still have the issue, it looks like I'm going to have to change my tactics! So my next question is... If I want to highlight the active field for the user, then have it return to its original state on exit, what is the best and easiest way to do this? Noting this would have to work in all the objects, including radio buttons and check boxes.Thanks.

Avatar

Because LiveCycle will not accept "transparent" as a colour, I have been using this JS to highlight the active field on enter, and return to the original fill colour on exit (usually none). For example, the field turns pale yellow on entry, and back to pale grey on exit. The script is called hilite.var highlightedFillColor = "255,255,204"; var oldFillColor = ""; function TabIn( Field ){ oldFillColor = Field.fillColor; Field.fillColor = highlightedFillColor; } function TabOut( Field ) { Field.fil...

Thanks Paul. Your explanation does make sense. This is fantastic information in understanding HOW it works -- not just that it works (my level of understanding )!I attempted to apply your suggested script but I'm still not able to place it into the Script Editor in what I think is the appropriate object. I get the same warning message about fragments.I've attached the XDP since I'm not good at explaining myself. What I'm trying to do is have the focus automatically go to the first field -- Depar...

Is it possible to automatically focus on a specific field when a LiveCycle PDF is opened? If yes, what script or formcalc and event type should I use? And last, where do I put the event on the hierarchy?I tried to put the following script in the first subForm on the body page 1 level. Please note the object I want to focus on is part of a fragment.xfa.host.setFocus("DeptDiv.ddlCityDept");But I was blocked from doing so. I get this error message and the entire Script Editor window was greyed out....

Please consider adding the ability to insert a caption to a radio button group, as well as the ability to insert/or not insert a caption for a checkbox group. This function is available in Form Guide so I'm hoping it can be done for LD as well.Currently if you add a text object (caption) above a group of radio buttons or checkboxes it throws off the tabbing order. It is also a major design challenge to get the layout to mimic the other objects AND if you are using a Positioned Content in your Su...

I have a static text paragraph with two floating fields. When the filler clicks on the RESET button it clears all the other fields except the text from the floating fields.In addition to the default JS on the reset button object (xfa.host.resetData();), I tried this JS on the reset button but no impact: xfa.host.resetData("xfa.form.form1033.P1.floatCoName");

Thanks Paul, but I am familar with adding accessibility text to an object. I just wanted to know how the screen reader works on a text object (not a text field object).Does it ignore the text object? Or does it read the text in the object? Or do I have to copy the text into the "custom text" section under the accessibility tab?I'm hoping for the first option since I have hundreds of fields on this particular form and to copy the text into the custom field is doubling the work, and worthless if t...

I did try the option of having the border fill with the colour black on exit but the whole checkbox filled with black instead. Niall, these are great ideas, but regrettably they dont work in this particular application.It was a nice wish to continue highlighting the active field but this time it just isn't going to work. The form I'm building has a large number of tables with rows of text and columns of checkboxes (non-captioned). In Acrobat this was easy... with LiveCycle not so much!Thanks for...

Thanks Paul but unfortunately that doesn't work for this application. It's for a "non-captioned" checkbox inside a table. All I want to do is continue to have the active field highlight in pale-yellow. I've got all my other fields (text, numeric, radio buttons, etc) all working. I just can't get the background of the checkbox to turn yellow on enter, and transparent on exit (AND not mask out the lines of the table).Any ideas? Suggestions?

I have a very complex form where initially the user has 4 options to choose from. When the user selections an option the applicable HIDDEN subform is made visible.

This PDF is then sent to their management.What has happened is that when the m...
