Submitting crash information using Windows Error Reporting

Starting with Designer 8.2.1, you can submit crash information using Windows Error Reporting. When you submit crash information, it would be helpful if you could log a bug and provide the steps required to reproduce the bug as well as the crash bucket ID assigned by Windows Error Reporting. Logging a bug will go a long way in helping us find the cause of the problems.

  1. Go to www.adobe.com
  2. Click the Send feedback link at the bottom of the page.
  3. In the Adobe Products section, click Report a bug.
  4. In the Product name list, select Designer.
  5. Provide the steps to reproduce the crash.
  6. Provide the crash bucket ID.

To retrieve the Windows Error Reporting Crash Bucket ID

Windows XP

  1. Select Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer.
  2. In the left pane, select Application.
  3. In the Application list, you should see two log messages called “Application Error” at the time Designer crashed. One of the log messages identifies the crash as being from “FormDesigner.exe”. The other message identifies the crash bucket ID that Windows Error Reporting associated with the crash. The number called “Fault Bucket” is the number you need to include in the bug report.

xfa.host.setFocus()

Did you know that starting with version 8.1, the setFocus() method can accept either a SOM expression or a node object?

For example,

xfa.host.setFocus(this);

xfa.host.setFocus(this.somExpression);
