Format the date pattern in PDF forms using LiveCycle Designer

We have our own preferable ways to write the date format. Most of the great software honor this and allow users to configure the pattern of a date.

If you are creating a PDF form using Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES3, having a date format of your choice is a walk in the park. LC Designer offers many pre-defined formats for the purpose, and also lets you define your own custom formats using the building blocks, such as MM for month, YY for 2-digit year, and YYYY for 4-digit value of the year. Watch the video to see how do so.

Adobe LiveCycle Designer: Create drop-down list of PDF forms with data in Excel

You can create versatile PDF forms using Adobe LiveCycle Designer. If your forms contain drop-down lists, you can either type all the values, or bring a large chunk of values from MS Excel or plain text formats. Watch the video to see how.

This is especially helpful for large dataset, where it is practically impossible to type them. Although this video uses Designer 10 as part of Adobe LiveCycle ES3, this works in some other versions of Designer too.
