Re: submit on enter Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
not really ,because they will be entering data. For example, they can enter a last name, then tab to the zip code field, enter data, and hit enter (at which point the search should execute based off the contents of the last name and zip code fields), or, more simply, they may just want to enter a last name and hit enter, and not further refine by zip code.That's just one of three different search methods we are offering.thanks,elaine

Re: submit on enter Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Actually, I cannot execute my code on the exit event of the field, because a user should be able to tab out of the field without executing the code, but should be able to "enter" within the field to execute. Both the tab and the enter execute the exit event. So the exit event won't work in this case.... I wonder if I can check on the exit event whether they hit the tab key or the enter key? thanks

Re: submit on enter Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Interesting, thanks. - the field is a single line text field. Tabbing out of the field takes me to the next field, but hitting the enter key makes the cursor go away and does not position to the next field. Although the exit event is still fired. Cool for now, thanks.

Re: submit on enter Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Paul, that's not what I'm talking about... The first part of our form is a search interface - so a user can enter a last name and hit the enter key - and if so, I want the search to be executed. Right now they havce to click a button to execute the search. I'd also like the enter key to simulate the same thing. Any suggestions?

Re: Pros/Cons of embedding schema to form Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Hi Parth, Yes, I discovered this. Interesting tid bit: I embedded the schema to the form, moved it to workbench, and when I created the xfaForm variable, and then clicked on the "schema settings" button in the xfaForm variable dialog, another dialog displayed that the schema was invalid (it wasn't, and this was verified in XMLSpy). I had to browse for the schema (in workbench), re-select it, and then it was brought in properly. Not sure why it didn't recognize the embedded schema. I ran through ...

Re: Use same script in different fields? Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Jono, not sure I understand. In our fragment, we have a "fragmentScript" script object that holds all of the common javascript, and we just add that fragment in the forms that need the common javascript.

Re: Use same script in different fields? Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Sure - we have a "commonScriptObjects.xdp" fragment that we keep all of our common javascript methods in. Then we add it to the form and hide it, then use the following reference to point to the script object://GET A HANDLE TO THE SCRIPT OBJECTvar commonScript = xfa.resolveNode("commonScriptObjectsFrag.fragmentScript");//CALL A JAVASCRIPT METHOD IN THE SCRIPT OBJECTcommonScript.setupSearch(); Here's another thing we do to validate our required fields. We pass in the actual field to validate and ...

Re: commenting multiple lines in formcalc/javascript Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
The comment block works, but I think this question stems from the use of RAD - People that are used to RAD (Eclipse) are accustomed to selecting multiple lines of code and then typing "CTRL-/" to comment multiple lines, each line having the "//".

Re: generatePDFOutput service produces unexpected results Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
In File-Form Properties, under the Performance tab, I have "Form requires server-side data binding and / or scripting" selected.I think we do need server side data binding (don't we? ) because we use a "search subsystem" fragment on the form that utilizes a web service to search data against a back end mainframe, then populate the form with data after the user selects a customer.Thanks,Elaine

Re: generatePDFOutput service produces unexpected results Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Yes, Paul, a user initiates the form in workspace, completes it, and when submitted, it goes to our "back office". At that point all fields are locked (thanks for that marvelous lock fields code), and the back office person simply reviews it and then marks it completed. At that point it is archived to the file system (later to be archived to FileNet, but not yet).When we pull up the file when it's been archived, that's when the form looks bad. It's archived to a pdf, and show/hide settings don't...

Re: Why does Livecycle Designer need to lock scripting on objects with children that are fragments?? Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Interestingly enough, the fragment code can reference script code outside itself (in the parent form that houses it), and the parent form can reference script inside of the fragment. We thought this was pretty cool, and useful in the case where we have a "search" fragment that sits on many forms... when the search fragment code completes, it has to hide itself, show its parent form with search fields populated. Since each parent form contents were wrapped in a subform called "mainContent", the s...

Re: Problem of form size Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
It is fixed in LS 8.2 SP2. The SP2 download can be found here: http://www.adobe.com/support/products/enterprise/200810kcs_livecyclees_8.htmlNot only is the problem resolved with SP2, but any affected file is fixed once you open it. Definitely a relief! Elaine

Re: Questions on workbench versioning Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Hi Howard,We are using xdp files. I think if you close workbench and reopen, then the form will re-establish a link to the newly replaced fragment. But that's a pain too.You want to run a test and prove me wrong? I'm overwhelmed this evening, because we're also suffering from the "huge LC file size" issue (http:// blogs.adobe.com/livecycle/2009/03/post.html). I've never struggled so much with a new product in my life, sigh. Thanks,Elaine

Hey Paul, we are getting hit by this "LC huge file size" issue left and right. Will installing the fix pack resolve currently affected files? Also, can you put the Style Sheet in this thread as an attachment? And provide instructions on what to do? I've not yet used style sheets with LC.Thanks,Elaine

Re: Questions on workbench versioning Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Mostly correct, Howard. Here's my dilemma. Because I am currently working locally on jboss, the sys tables are stored locally and I don't want extra forms / files sitting in there unnecessarily. Unfortunately I can't do anything about this giving the capabilities of the current tool. Additionally, I don't think it's the end-users responsibility to write an API to manage that aspect of the system tables - I strongly believe that that is the responsibility of the tool (or adobe) to provide us with...

Re: Questions on workbench versioning Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
Thanks Steve for your thorough responses. I will mark this question as answered, however I need to conclude with the following statement that I am really concerned about not having the ability through adminUI or wherever to keep these tables clean (I will try the purge utility to see how that works). We are in the process of migrating a ton of local forms to workbench, and because we're using an agile process, we will be hitting these forms over and over again - meaning we will be continually re...

Questions on workbench versioning Elaine_Schmitz - Adobe LiveCycle
I learned the hard way that one should not really be using designer in workbench to modify forms, due to the version incrementing with each save and possible database bloat that could result. Knowing that, the following questions come to mind:1. Can I limit the number of versions of a form that are stored? 2. Can I clean out older versions of a form?? 3. When I delete a form (or file) from the resources pane, let's say it's at version 15, are all previous versions of that file deleted too? Or do...
