I have a table with 18 rows. Each row has a text filed that is shaded a color based on the selection from a drop down field. I want to be able to click a button and return all of the shaded fields back to white (not shaded). This is the script under the change event of the drop down:Signal.border.fill.color.value = "255, 255, 255";//white My table rows are labeledRow[0]Row[1]Row[2]Row[3]etc. to 18 Is there a script to include all and return all border.fill.color.value = "255, 255, 255";//white ?

I don't want the engineer to be able to digitally sign the form unless they have attached a particular check sheet file. I have a list box that displays the file names of all files the user attaches. I need JavaScript that will look for the attachment file name "Supplier Check Sheet" in the list box and if found, then allows the engineer to sign the form. If not found, i will have an error message appear. If you can tell me how to search for the file name in the list box, I can probably do the r...

I am using JavaScript to open a drop-down list of names during the enter event.xfa.host.openList("this");When the user enters the first few letters of the person's first name and only one name remains in the list, I want that name to be selected and populate that drop-down field when the user tabs out. I know the user could arrow down to their choice and then tab out but they prefer it to work the way I described. Is there a way to script that when only one item remains displayed and the user ta...

Is there a way to script to change all of the text in a textField back to text color black ("0,0,0") if a user has changed the text color using the Form Field Text Properties Bar? It looks like that is done on a separate layer?I tried this and it does not work:Subform1.UpperSection.font.fill.color.value = "0,0,0";and I tried:Subform1.UpperSection.font.color = "0,0,0";

I have a form that is attached to an instruction page with a button that opens the attached form. The problem is users close the instruction page which in turn closes the form. Is there a script that will open the attached LiveCycle PDF form is a separate window?

I would have to recreate the entire form to pull data from the database to each of the fields necessary. I agree that is how the form should have been created but for now I need to make this work the way it is.So my question remains, using script, I am trying to select a particular number from the dropdown list and have the dropdown exit event run so the script in the dropdown object runs the same way it would run if a user select the number from the list themselves.I have tried script that puts...

Sorry, I am not being clear.I can use script to get the value from the database and put it into the dropdown but that does not seem to run the exit event script. Is there script that I can add that will run the exit event after I populate the dropdown?Maybe this isn't possible since I am not selecting from the dropdown list but rather just entering a formattedValue.

Without connecting your form to a database, the form has no way of knowing how many have been created in a particular day. Therefore, the only suggestion I can give you is to use today's date followed by the time formula in this post. The time formula is ten digits long and is a rounded off number but always unique.Good luck!

Is it possible to embed Google Maps Directions or MapQuest directions into a LiveCycle form?I created a Travel Expense report and thought it would be great if users could select their destinations directly in Google Maps/MapQuest in the form itself.
