Using Adobe LiveCycle Designer, form designers and developers can create well-designed,
interactive forms that are better for both the user of the form and ultimately the
compiler of the form data. In Creating Dynamic Forms using Adobe LiveCycle Designer,
J.P.Terry explains how to get the most out of this powerful
and versatile tool. Whether you're a designer with little programming experience
or a programmer without formal design training, this book is for anyone who needs
and appreciates the power of well-designed, interactive forms. The book was written
in tandem with the Adobe LiveCycle development team and it has been thoroughly reviewed
by several Adobe-certified engineers and form designers. This book is accessible
enough for a beginner but rich enough for advanced users. It covers all of the major
LiveCycle Designer features and includes valuable links to other documentation and

The following book errata lists the errors that were discovered after Creating Dynamic Forms
with Adobe LiveCycle Designer was published and their corrections that have been
approved by the author and editor.
Step 4 is correct if you are using Designer 7.x, 8.0 or 8.1. However, Adobe has updated this interface. If you are using Designer ES (8.2) or ES2 (9.0), Step 4 should read, "Select File > Form Properties and then select the Preview tab."
The final sentence should read: "In this case the body page subform (page2) is related to the master page (mp_2) by using the Place property on the Pagination tab of the Object palette."
The final sentence should read: "Simply select File > Form Properties > Defaults and reestablish the link in the Data File field." Select the directory icon to the right of the Data Fil? field and you can re-establish the link with the shirtColor.xml. If you are using Designer ES, follow these steps instead: File > Form Properties > Preview > Data File. Select the directory icon to the right of the text field and you can re-establish the link with the shirtColor.xml data file.
