I posted the following question in the Adobe LiveCycle forum, but it appears to be hidden or something. The link to the post goes to a 404 error if the person is not signed in to the board, apparently. So I'm reposting it here, and apologies, I know this isn't a LiveCycle forum, but I'm getting a bit desperate for help.
I have an old form that was created by someone else in 2015 in LiveCycle. I am working on it in Designer but have very little experience with it; I'm mostly learning by doing.
I have two text fields where I need to have a character count, one for characters used and another for characters remaining. Even though I'm working from the original file where this worked, in my new version I keep getting errors, even though I haven't changed anything.
The first field is called shorttitle which has a 40 character max, and the count shows the characters left. The next one is abstract, and that needs to be an expandable text box and the character count shows the characters used. Neither of those work.
For the shorttitle I show the following in the Script Editor:
The field hierarchy is:
projecttitle (text field)
shorttitle (text field)
shorttitlecharleft (numeric field-value Calculated-Read Only; Calculation Script)
The other field is an expanding text box called abstracttext This has a 200 character minimum.
The field hierarchy for this is:
abstracttext (text field with multiple lines and page breaks allowed, plus Expand to fit on Height checked)
abstracttext (numeric field-value Calculated-Read Only; Calculation Script)
The code for the abstracttext field is:
Please, is there anyone who can help?
Is your form an LCD one or not, then?
I was given a completed pdf form that was originally created in LiveCycle.
I was able to download a old trial version of LiveCycle ES4.
The trial ran out before I was able to complete the edits on the form.
I was able to intall a trial of AEM_forms designer ver. 6.4 and am trying to finish the form in that before that trial runs out.
Sorry if this is a mess, it's kind of a mess.
