Hi There

As a Newbie, I have been struggling with using a bit of Javascript in form validation and dynamically adding fields. Easy! According to code I found on the Net and examples in books; forms etc!!! Except that the Javascript in this version of Adobe Designer does not seem to have many of the Properties those examples used. Classic example: no sign off the this.getField("fielname") command!!! Similarly, the adding of fields on the fly according to one author simply requires: xfa.form.tasks.page1.task.instanceManager.addInstance(true); .... well again "tasks" seems to be missing .... and so on!!

Can anyone help me on this? I have attached the project that I have been trying to validate and add fields in .... eternally grateful to any guru who bails me out here.
