Text Fields


Not applicable
I am haveing a problem with text boxs in Acrobat 7. I am use to Acrobat 4.0 where I use a script to put the contens of one text field into another text field like this:

text field 4 calculation script: var a = this.getField(1)

event.value = a.value

This puts what ever is in text field 1 into text field 4.

I am unable to do this in Acrobat 7.

Can anyone help me with this?

It looks like you're using AcroForms; have you tried using the Adobe Form Designer? Import your form into Designer and you'll have a much richer scripting model available to use for building your form.

In Designer, you'd use code like this:

fieldOne.rawValue = field2.rawValue;
