Yes ...it will involve some mods to the sample I provided but it can be done. Are you familiar with scripting? If not you will find it very difficult.
I'm not familiar with scripting.... is it possible to create a very simple pdf and send me a sample of locking some fields, but not others?
That would be very useful in applying the concept to another form. It's clearly a hurdle I need to master.... Thanks.
Actually, I have incorporate some scripting into my form, for example, creating popup messages with user instructions, automating some of the functions in text fields, setting up calculations, etc., so i'd like to give the locking forms scripting a try. Thanks!
It is very simple .....you have to decide when you want to lock the fields (click of a button, filling of a field ...) This is called an event. On the event that you want to code against you add the code to lock the fields that you want. Each field would have one line of code like this:
The name of your field.access = "readOnly";
So if you wanted to lock 7 fields there woudl be 7 statements (one for each field)
Hope that helps
This could be an interesting challenge - creating a form that can be completed in three logical steps, with each of the steps involving locking the fields filled in for that session! I'll tackle this, with your thanks.
If you scroll up in this discussion you will see that it has already been posted (Feb 11). You should be able to downlaod it from that post.
No there is no Mac version of Designer ....Windows only. Designer is used to create/edit the form. So you only need Designer if you want to author any part of the form.
ok Thanks for that info, i am on hold with Adobe Customer Care now, does anyone know how easy it is to switch my platform license to Windows? just did the upgrade to Pro 9 because i was told it would work on the mac, never was told about the feature differences between the two platforms.
