    I have tried the above example, when I fill the parameter Fillable = ‘X’, I get exception as below:

    Exception       SYSTEM_ERROR

    Message ID:          FPRUNX                     Message number:           001


    ADS: com.adobe.ProcessingException: com.adobe.Processin(200101)

    Kindly advice.

    Dear Siva Ramakrishna,

    with code provided its not allowing to close the application if at all with wrong password. and if I click Esc on keyboard its giving java script debugger pop-up and then allowing to access the document. any solution you suggest?

      Hi Sateesh,

      The intention of the code is not to display form if wrong password has been entered.

      You have to enter the right password to display form, else we need to close it.

      We can click on Cancel and close the adobe form.
