I had created a pdf in Acrobat Pro which has a 'drop down list' that, upon selection, auto populates multiple fields. I accomplished this by using addition the following under "Custom Keystroke Script":
This all worked wonderfully; however, I wanted to add a pop-up calendar on the date field so I decided to use LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2. Now my auto-population does not work. Is there any suggestions on how I can set it to have both working correctly? I need the auto popluation fields (based on a single drop down menu) but would prefer to keep the calendar too...
Let me know if you have any thought, or is this not possible,
When in LC Designer you can add a date field, which has an inbuilt popup calendar. When in Acrobat, this object is not available.
You probably have two choices:
You can access AcroForm objects by preceeding the script with "event.target."; e.g. event.target.this.getField(field1)...
(2) leave your form in Acrobat and following examples on the web for creating a popup calendar (http://www.acrobatusers.com/tutorials/2006/date_time_part2 - free and http://www.pdfscripting.com - paid subscription service).
