I have a pdf form that I am building in Livecycle. I have a password field and when the user enters the correct password the submit button will appear. This portion of the form is working, but the problem is that when the form first opens the button is visible. It only turns invisible when the user click the "Check Password" button for the first time.

If I try to set the button to "invisible" then the button is always invisible, even when the correct password is entered. The only code on the page is this:

 form1.#subform[0].Button1::click - (JavaScript, client)

if (TextField2.rawValue == "1") {
EmailSubmitButton2.presence = "visible";
}
else {
EmailSubmitButton2.presence = "invisible";
}

I've attached the form (password is 1 and button is at bottom) if anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it. This has been driving me crazy.

Thanks

Presence properties not working (hidden, invisible, visible)

So I just recently got introduced to LiveCycle ES version 8.2 and I've been messing with things and creating buttons to give myself a better understanding of the thing. I've run into an issue where the presence values aren't working correctly. I've got a working knowledge of Javascript and XML but I can't find where my problem is.
