Re: How to set own (number, specific) format? SOLVED

One of the ways to do that would be to use the following JavaScript:

Code: Select all

// convert current field value to a number
var n = 1 * event.value;
// format it
event.value = util.printx("999 99", util.printf("%05d", n));

Re: Not Getting Changes to Write to File

Sorry, I missed your post.

You can insert that line before this line in your original code:

Code: Select all

PXC_Rect rect = field.Widget[0].get_Rect();
Or, you can use the current version 8.0.330.0 where the issue is fixed and your code should work as expected without my line.

Re: Problem with zoom option "Fit Visible"

Actually, some changes have been made in the latest version (8.0.330.0) to try to change the behavior. Did you try this version?

But I must say, that other PDF apps, like Acrobat, do not preserve fit visible scroll position limitation, but trying to put highlighted item as most centered as possible.
