Hi,I'm facing a similar situation. I already found out a solution based on the pre-print event. But is there any way to cancel the print-event?

How to find out if a pattern validation failed _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Hello,I have Designed a form with several pattern-validations on it. LC's default behavior on such validation is that a message will be shown, but the user is still allowed to leave the field. Even if the entered data is crap. So is it there any way to clear the field after a validation error or enforce the user to go back to the field?I know it it possible to mark the validation as an error, so submitting will refuse. But in my case I have a custom submitting procedure, so this won't work.Thank...

How to get data in footer? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
I have a problem with positioning data in a documents footer, which I couldnt get solved. The case: a form is bound to XML-data containing multiple records. For each instance a letter should be created containing data from records nodes. This works fine except for the footer: a text containing data from the record should appear. It varies per record, so it couldnt be located on the Master Page. And the text should be repeated on every page if a letter contains multiple pages.I tried to put a sec...

Re: XML schema binding _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
When you drag a field from a data-connection (XSD, XML or whatever) it might look like you have put an data-field on your form. You actually create a new form-field, which automatically inherits its type and properties from the related data type AT THAT MOMENT. So any changes to the schema afterwards, wouldn't have any effect on form-fields previously added. (I can think of lots of reasons, why you don't want to change field's properties automatically. If your schema's changes that often, that m...

Re: Tab sequence on conditional forms? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
I'm familiar with this new tab-feature and actually did use it to set the proper tab-order. But as a result I get this weird behavior on conditionally shown parts.The "geographic order" would be OK for me... if it would work like that, but it doesn't: the tab-indexes of subforms shown in the middle of the form are sequentially ordered AFTER parts that were visible at startup. So now when walking through the form by hitting tab, it skips the conditional parts until the end of the form is reached ...

Tab sequence on conditional forms? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
I have a form with several conditional parts stored in fragments. I found some odd behavior with the tab sequence: Using LC Designer v8.2 I set the appropriate tab sequence for both container document and fragements. But when running the form it seems like part's appearing conditionally (based on user interaction) are positioned after regular form-parts in tab sequence. Even though the conditional parts are in the middle of the form! :SDoes anyone has an idea how to solve this?

Re: Are there limitations on complexity of forms? What are they? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
The fragment version was my first idea also: checked them all and ensured their all in the correct version. Without any help.I guess this is more like a 'feature thing'. I tried to rebuilt the form from scratch and found already some issues:1. It seems Acrobat/Reader 7 don't like fragments on Master Pages. That starts LC Designer to complain about this "exceeding capability"2. This is a strange one: as soon as I add a (regular) button in a Master Page, this message appears also. Strange, because...

Are there limitations on complexity of forms? What are they? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Currently I'm busy assembling a couple (4) of static forms, available in 2 different languages, into one single interactive and dynamic form. This has to run on Acrobat / Reader version 7.Every form is first developed as a separate fragment. Now we finaly assemble them into the root-form, we get the following message in the log: "Invalid version: The current version of the XFA template model exceeds the capability of Acrobat / Reader 7.0.5"Does anyone know about limitations on the capability or ...

Are you testing on Acrobat or Reader? In case of Reader the form will also need to be Reader Extended (or Usage rights needs to be enabled from Acrobat)

Re: Insert data from a field into the subject of an email generated form a form _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Using the default "submit by e-mail"-button won't allow you to do that, but by using (java)script (at the 'click'-event of a regular button) you can make it more dynamic. Try this:var assembledEmailString = "mailto:" + addresseeText + "?&subject=" + subjectText + "&body=" + bodyText; event.target.submitForm({cURL:assembledEmailString ,cSubmitAs:"PDF",cCharset:"utf-8"});(where "addresseeText", "subjectText" and "bodyText" are variables you can fill with your own data.Hope this helps!

Re: How to create a .ini file using Adobe LC designer _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Unlike Paul said, you actually can automatically import data. Due to default security policies Acrobat/Reader won't allow you to gain access the local file system. To by pass this you need to sign your document and this signature should be trusted by your users.I have done such approach, but believe me: this signing stuff can cause some headaches!

Re: Saving to a predefined path _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Appearently there is some misunderstanding: The mentioned options are part of trusting the applied digital signature on the document. So when a user opens the form a message appears that the signatures wasn't validated yet. ("The validity of the document certification is UNKOWN. The author could not be verified.")In case of Reader/Acrobat version 8:When you have a look at "Signature properties", you find a tab "Signer". Here you will find a button called "Show Certificate...". Click this one and...

Re: After Saving the content, will Dynamic PDF show the modified content while Opening ? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Wow, this seems like a quizz 😉The answer is "C": The checkbox's value is stored as data, but the presence of the row is managed by script triggered by a user-actions. PDF's won't store the visual state of a form. Only data-driven lay-out changes will be restored after reopening a form.In such case I usually call the event of the control, which manage the presence of the dynamic part, form the initialize event of the form. So at the opening of the, regardless whether it is opened for first time ...

Re: Global Method _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
You can create a new Script Object at form-level. (Right click on the form and select "Insert Script Object")Next give the new object a proper name (e.g. GlobalFunctions)In the Script Object you can enter your scripts like you are used to do within control-event (unless you are using FormCalc as script-language, because script objects only allows JavaScript). However it is now a function instead of a event, so you need to make a function of it. E.g:function DoSomething(SomeParameter) { return "I...

Re: Saving to a predefined path _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
When you trust a signature, you need to select the permissions. Make sure options "Execute high privilege JavaScripts..." and "Perform privileged system operations..." are switched ON. By default these are switched of, but are required to allow access to the local filesystem for saving.

Re: I'm the only one who can submit PDF by e-mail! _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
You can change afterwards, but need to re-apply these Reader Enabling or Reader Extensions. But be aware of the license restrictions. The reason why you can't do such things as saving PDF, is that Adobe won't allow you to do that with the license-free software.For more information, take a look at this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_LiveCycle_Reader_ExtensionsKind regards,Edgar

Can I customize XDP-templates? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
When working with LC Designer you can save a common used lay-out (e.g. presenting corporate's identity) as a Designer Template (tds-file), which is very helpful when you need to create new forms in a common lay-out. When creating a new XDP-form from the Workbench I'm also able to select a template, but it is actually only a list of paper sizes (A4, Letter, etc.). Is it possible to extend or customize the templates presented in the Workbench? And if, how?Thank you in advance for your answer.Kind ...

Re: I'm the only one who can submit PDF by e-mail! _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Perhaps a stupid question, but: Is this form Reader Enabled by Acrobat or has it Reader Extensions applied on it? Otherwise 'submit as PDF' will only work for users having Acrobat. It won't work (you won't even get the e-mail window) when you only have Adobe Reader. (Because Reader (without extensions) won't allow to save forms)RegardsEdgar

Re: Saving to a predefined path _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
First of all you should be aware of the \-character in your path: because this is a reserved character within script (e.g. to force line-feeds), you need to use it double. So the last line of you script should be:myDoc.saveAs("C:\\" + t + ".pdf"); Next you need to know that saving a document to a specified (local) path conflicts with the security policies of Acrobat/Reader. To allow such action you need to sign your document (and the certificate should be trusted by your user(s)), otherwise the ...

Drag local files to repository: bug or Vista-issue? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
I'm not very familiar with the Workbench yet; I only used LC Designer so far. Now I'm trying to add (standalone) forms to the repository of a project in the Workbench.As I understand from WB's Help, it should be possible to drag files from local file system to a folder in the repository. But when trying this it doesn't work (cursor changes into a 'not allowed to drop' sign). Is this some kind of bug in Workbench or is this (again) one of the annoying security-issues of Windows Vista? (Although I...

Is Workbench v8.2 running properly on Vista? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
On Adobe's website I found a list of system requirements for LCSE Update 1. For LC Designer Vista is mentioned as a supported platform, but it isn't for the Workbench. It installed properly on a Vista-machine, but appeared to be rather unstable. Now I wonder if it is caused by Vista, or is there some issue with my complete sys. configuration?Does anyone else has experience with Workbench v8.2 on Vista?

Re: Dynamic Form - Saving the data in the dynamic Containers / fields _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Sounds like the same problem I've met earlier. Have a look at topic "Instantiated subforms disappear after save?"It appears that you loose (after save and reopen) created instances of subforms/containers as soon as there are unbound parent-containers somewhere in the hierarchy. Only solution there is to bind every unbound container to normal and make subforms unnamed when they should be in your (data)output.Kind Regards,Edgar

Re: Instantiated subforms disappear after save? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Hello Asiye,Thanks for your suggestions. I already has set those settings like you described, without any help. In the meanwhile I had some e-mailcontact with someone from Adobe. It appears this has something to do with the binding of subforms: I have several nested subforms. Some of them are only for lay-out purposes, so they had no binding set. As soon as those subforms are set to 'normal' binding, my problem is solved.... but now those 'lay-out subforms' appear as (sub)levels in my output/dat...

Instantiated subforms disappear after save? _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
Hello,In a certain project I use several PDF-forms containing subforms instantiated by users when they need to fill in multiple blocks of similar data. This instantiating is done by using scripts calling the instanceManager. This works fine so far! Now I just noticed a problem with solution: Whenever such a form is saved as PDF (manually in Reader, but also by e-mail submit), all instantiated subforms (and the data it contained) disappeared as soon as the PDF is closed and reopened. Only the fir...

Backwards compatibility issue: plain button acts like 'submit' in Reader 7?! _Edgar_van_Waar - Adobe LiveCycle
As part of a project we designed a form in LiveCycle Designer ES (8.1). It was tested on Reader v8 and works perfect. At some moment requirements has changed: it should run at least at Reader v7. So I thought "no problem, just change form's properties". But it appears to be not that easy: Some functionality doesn't act similar between Reader v8 and v7. Most of them are bypassed with workarounds, but still a big issue remains: some (plain) buttons with some (basic) JavaScript are used. These are ...
