Hi I am currently trying to accomplish a few things using adobe live cycle and java script. I am in need of assitance and would be very greatful for any help. I have provided the scenario below.
A user enters a date into a pdf fillable form by entering information into 6 text fields. One text field for the 4 digits of the year e.g. 2015 and 2 for the month e.g. 09 (September). I would like to make another field textfield Y be mandatory if the date (the one with the 6 text boxes) -todays date <1865 days. Please note I am not able to change the form design unfortunately. In order to help I have provided a little more detail below.
Lets say a user has a date of Sep 15, 2015 then they enter 2 in one text field, 0 in another, 1 in another, 5 in another, 0 in another and 9 in the last field. The rule is if today's date-that date they entered is less than 5 years they must provide additional information.
I have concated the the 6 text fields to construct a date that is "YYYY-MM" and have tried to put in the rule but the dates are not being read properly. Any help would be much appreciated. Some of my code is below.
To re-recreat the date I created a text field and using form calc on calculate event. M2R =the second month digit
if (M2R.rawValue nenull)
To capture the date for today I simply use this code in another text box
= Num2Date(Date(), "MMM-YY")
To get the difference I take I simply create a new variable =Concatted date-today's date in milliseconds, then convert it into days into a variable called days. I try to capture this in a numerfic field.
To set mandatory field I say fieldname.mandatory=(days.rawvalue<1865)?"error:"disabled"
I have created a demo form however can not find how to upload it. All the code is below. The 6 fields which date 2 gets data from are (Y1R,Y2R etc). I think I am good with the mandatory fields. The problem seems to be reading the dates and taking the difference.
