How to keep a calculation field blank until the user enters a number?

I am building a sales sheet for a school that sells scrip as a fund-raiser. I have the document set so that when the user enters the number of scrip certificates he wants (say, two $25 gift certificates at Lowe's), the program will automatically calculate that this user owes $50 for that scrip category. However, there are more than 100 companies that one can choose from, and if the user doesn't enter a number, the calculated field shows $0. Is there a way that each field can stay blank until the user enters a number bigger than zero? By the way, I'm using this calculation to determine the value (borrowed from a user on this forum): event.value = 50 * this.getField("Lowes").value

There are two approaches. You can either add the following Validate script:
// Custom Validate script for calculated field
if (+event.value !== 0) event.value = "";
Or you can change your custom Calculate script and set the Format type of the field to "None":
// Custom Calculate script
(function () {
    var v = +getField("Lowes").value;
    event.value = (v !== 0) ? util.printf("$%.2f", v) : "";

  • How to mask a particular field depending on the user for a protected pdf?

    I have a requirement of showing a particular fiels data to only one user and to hide that critical data to others. For example, suppose I have two users viz, Primary user and Secondary user. I have a field named UID in my protected pdf form which has some critical data. I want only my Primary user enter and view the information entered in the UID field. When the Secondary user opens the document using his credentials, he should not be able to view the data in the UID field. It should be displayed in astrix as in a password field. Can anyone help me how to acheive this for a protected document?
    Thanks and Regards,
    Maria Johni

    It is possible. You should be having a field in your XSD schema for the username. Bind the username to a hidden field in your form.
    In the designer, in form initialize event,
    write the code: if hiddenfield.rawValue == "person A"
                                 subform1.presence = "hidden";
                           if hiddenfield.rawValue == "person B"
                                 subform2.presence = "hidden";
                                 subform1.presence = "visible"   }
    In your process, when your moving from one step to other step, update the uname accordingly and the form will respond according to the username.

  • How do I make form or table where certain numbers update according to a formula when the user enters one number?

    Hi, I am an amature website designer and have made a website
    using dreamweaver. I am very lost when it comes to doing tougher
    things in dreamweaver. I want to create a small form or a table
    where there will be 7 or so numbers that are generated based on
    simple formulas for each one once you enter one number. Can someone
    please help me with this task whether it is in dreamweaver or even
    making it out of flash or anyway that this would be the easiest to
    make possible. Thanks

    Here's a very simple form you could use to perform a
    calculation, it this case, squares the input value and writes it
    back to another input field... Hopefully you can use this as a
    pattern to apply your own algorithm. You'll need to do validation
    to assure the entered fields are appropriate for the calculation
    (required fields are entered).
    Hope this gets you started.

  • How to insert a dialog box which prompt the user enter the general information in the SDI application?

    Im using the SDI application to build a system and now i would like to insert a dialog box which allow the user to enter the general information about themselves and then it will be saved into a text file. How to insert the dialog box and show the dialog box at the beginning of the program.

    Hi Lee,
    The easyest way to achieve this is to declare an object of your dialog box derived class (e.g. CUserInfo, public CDialog) into the InitInstance method of the main application class.
    Depending on the behavior you want you can place the code before dispatching the commands from command line (in which case the main frame of the SDI application will not be shown), or after, in which case the UserInfo dialog box will be shown over the main application window as modal.
    The code snipped bellow can be more helpfull:
    BOOL CSDIApp::InitInstance()
    // Parse command line for standard shell commands, DDE, file open
    CCommandLineInfo cmdInfo;
    //prompt user for data
    CUserInfo dlg;
    if (dlg.DoModal() == IDOK)
    //do something here with the data
    return FALSE;//i.e. quit the application if the user presses the 'Cancel' button
    // Dispatch commands specified on the command line
    if (!ProcessShellCommand(cmdInfo))
    return FALSE;
    // The one and only window has been initialized, so show and update it.
    return TRUE;
    Hope this helps,

  • How to create a calculated field

    Hi. I'd like to know how to create a calculated field for a master- detail form. For example: having two db fields price and quantity, i created a the total item (price * quantity) as pl/sql function like this:
    :p13_item_total := :p13_price * :p13_quantity;
    However, the item is not calculated. It is not and instant calculation. I mean if i modify either price or quantity, how to recalculate item total immediately

    You must submit the page to do it with PL/SQL. If you do not want to submit the page, you must do it with JavaScript.

  • Can I cause checking a box to add 1 to a calculated form field?  I have a field that sums the numbers entered in several previous fields and need to be able to add "1" if a checkbox is selected as well.

    Can I cause checking a box to add 1 to a calculated form field?  I have a field that sums the numbers entered in several previous fields and need to be able to add "1" if a checkbox is selected as well.

    I think it has something to do with the way the value of the check box is exported, but I'm not sure.  With nothing being exported to Data5, Data6 displays the sum of Data1-4 rounded down to the nearest whole number and updates automatically as Data1-4 are updated.
    Right now, assuming Data1-4 are 0, where data 5 is the output of the second example and any box is checked,  "1" is displayed in data5 but nothing is added to data 6. Selecting any other check box or deselecting that check box will cause data6 to add 1 even if data5 displays "0".  By way of example:
    Selecting Check box 16 results in Data5 displays 1 and Data6 displays zero.
    Then, if any or all of Checkbox17-20 are selected, Data5 displays 1 and Data6 displays 1.
    Then, if any or all of Checkbox17-20 are deselected, Data5 Displays 1 and Data6 displays1.
    Then, if Checkbox16 is deselected, Data5 displays 0 and Data6 displays 1.

  • How can I pause a slide until the user clicks a button?

    I wish to pause a slide until the user clicks a button (which I've created out of a Smartshape). The thing is that I haven't added a click box object over the smartshape but have only set the smartshape properties to "Use as Button". If I were to add a clickbox object, I would get a "Pause project until user clicks" in the options section of the properties. However in using a smartshape as a button, I cannot find this option. I am using Captivate 6. Seems strange as I would have expected to see the same checkbox option even if I were to use a smartshape as a button but I dont. Can't someone help me and let me know if I'm missing something.
    Of course I could use a clickbox over my smartshape to achieve what I want, but I want to avoid thsi for two reason:
    I want to avoid adding another object when I dont need it.
    My smartshape is a right arrow (indicating "Begin"), and I dont want a squarish click box sitting on top of a triangle because that just shows the hand pointer even if the cursor isn't exactly over the arrow button because it enter the clickbox area.

    Select the Smart Shape button , go to Properties > Timing accordion > Pause After and set the number of seconds from the beginning of the slide for it to pause.

  • How to get the user entered data?

    Hi all,
    I have created an HTMLB DynPage component.
    In That i have created my input screen with textboxes using response.write method.
    i have added one onConfirm event on which the data whould validate.
    so onConfirm method im trying to get the data with request.getParameter method which returns null...
    how to to get the user entered data to do my validations...can anyone plz advice.

    inputfield or textbox component entered directly using response.write(...) are not htmlb , but html.
    to create portal input field (ie HTMLB), you should do something like
    this in the doProcessBeforeOutput member function
    InputField field1 = new InputField("Id1");
    field1.setSize(8); // 8 characters
    and in doProcessAfterInput member function
    InputField field1 =
    (InputField) this.getComponentByName("Id1");
    you can then manipulate the content of the field.
    Hope this help,
