you create a numeric field, the Binding tab presents data binding
options that you can apply to the object. Options that are not specifically
related to creating a data connection apply both to data bound to
a data source and data saved to a file when the object is not bound
to a data source.
Sets the default data-binding method:
- Use name
- Enables data merging and saving options. Data values are
merged and stored implicitly according to Adobe data-merging rules.
- Use global data
- Associates a single data value with all objects that have
the same name (see To define a global field).
- New Data Connection
- Starts the New Data Connection wizard. To define a connection
using the wizard, see Create a data connection to an XML schema or Create a data connection to an OLE database.
- No data binding
- Disables data binding. Because the object will not capture
or display merged data, any information associated with the object
is not written as output when the form data is saved/submitted.
Sets the format of the data. See To specify a data pattern:
- A three-part representation of a number that contains a radix
character. The number is represented by the following parts: a sign,
a number, and a radix character. Some examples of floating point
numbers are 4.23423412, 1234.1234234, or 4.00. Note that in some
locales, the radix character is not a decimal point. For example,
in a German (Germany) locale, the radix character is a comma (as
- Any sequence of the digits 0 through 9 possibly preceded
by a minus sign. For example, the number may be a positive (such
as 1, 2, or 3), a zero, or a negative whole number (such as -1,
-2, or -3).
