Adobe LiveCycle ES3 * Script Editor
By default, the Script Editor appears at the top of the Designer workspace, but you can dock it anywhere. It has both a single-line view and a multiline view that you can switch between, depending on your needs. Single-line view is designed to maximize the amount of space dedicated to the Layout Editor and other palettes. Multiline view is designed to maximize the amount of space for writing script.
To place a function onto your script editing field, select a function from the list and press Enter. FormCalc FormCalc is a native Adobe calculation language typically used for shorter scripts, such as simple calculations.
However, if you change the scripting language setting for the current form on the Defaults tab in the Form Properties dialog box, the scripting language that is displayed in the Language list changes similarly for any new scripts on new events. Changing the scripting language option in the Form Properties dialog box does not fprmcalc the scripting language for existing scripts.
If an event already contains script and that script is deleted, the Script Editor continues to use that same scripting language for the duration of your Designer working session.
Client and server Calculations and scripts execute while the server application for example, Forms processes the form, except in cases where the HTML client application supports client-side scripting. For example, a script that accesses a database to prefill data on a form.
Show Lists all form design events that support user-defined scripting. Any events that do not apply to a particular object appear dimmed. Show Events for Child Objects Displays the event you have currently selected in the Show list for the current object and all of its child objects.

Check Script Syntax Checks all of the scripts in a form for correct syntax and reports any errors on the Warnings tab in the Report palette. Language Adobee the scripting language you want to use for the current calculation or script.
Two options are available: Run At Specifies where the calculation or script will execute. Three options are available: You can make your scripts global, by enabling event propagation in the Script Editor. The setting allows form events to propagate to ancestor containers. Event propagation can reduce the number of adoe in a form.
For example, you can create a global script to control the appearance of invalid fields, subforms, or exclusion groups.
A few examples of global events are: A change event that track keystrokes for a form session.
