JAVASCRIPT INSIDE FORMS

Like Acrobat, Designer enables the use of JavaScript in its forms. In fact, Designer uses two different scripting languages: Its own FormCalc is the main one, and JavaScript is a supporting language. However, unlike Acrobat, Designer's emphasis in the use of JavaScript is on the business side of form management because it's a part of LiveCycle, which is not a graphics suite but a business document management solution.

For example, if you use Designer to create invoice forms, you could use JavaScript to have the form query a database and retrieve current prices for items in the invoice and then calculate and display the totals.
