Building intelligent forms using Adobe LiveCycle Designer

Final Post: XFA Tank Wars

Dear Readers and Fellow Form Developers,

The time has come for me to focus my extra energy on other goals and projects at Adobe and at home.

I have thoroughly enjoyed helping the XFA community for these past 4.5 years. All of the content on this blog was a direct result of your questions and I learned a great deal about Adobe’s XFA technology and its LiveCycle Enterprise Suite along the way. Thank you!

I leave you now with a final “form to end all forms” (in my mind, anyway): A version of the classic Tank Wars game implemented entirely in XFA + JavaScript.

Why do this, you wonder? Well, it was a good challenge, you couldn’t embed Flash in an XFA form back then and I wanted to do something that would really put LiveCycle Designer’s Script Editor through its usability paces.

Comments are now closed on all posts and pages except for this one and the XFA Tank Wars page which will close on December 31, 2010. I will continue to host this blog for your reference and bookmarks however I cannot guarantee it will be available forever.

Good luck on all your present and future form development projects.

    The tank game is pretty wild!

    I just found this blog and I am in need of some help. If you have time to answer some basic questions I am kind of a newbie and have no one to turn to for help in livecycle. I am so sad to see that you will not be doing this for much longer. If you have a moment I would really appreciate just a few hopefully quick questions answered. Thanks!
