Hi everyone,

Our LCD form does an Adobe Acrobat Reader version check before it opens, using the following JS:


if (parseFloat(app.viewerVersion) < 12)

  {

  xfa.host.messageBox("If you are seeing this message, your version of Adobe Acrobat Reader may be outdated.\n\nFor best user experience, please download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC at https://get.adobe.com/reader.", "Adobe Acrobat is outdated", 0, 0);

  }

However, many of our users are going to get annoyed by how often they see this prompt, if they can't or won't update their Reader to the latest version. Is there a way to add a check box to the message box that allows the user to suppress future notices of this kind? Such as "[ ] Do not tell me to update anymore"?

I feel like this might not be possible, since it seems like it would be a program-level change (rather than something that could be remembered for the form, itself), but I figured I'd try asking about it, just in case.

Thanks for taking the time to read my question!

Hi Radzmar and MinusZero,

 

I'm dying to try it, but I haven't quite gotten to it yet. I'll definitely post about my success/failure once I do, though!

 

I really appreciate your taking the time to talk me through it--this is extremely helpful.

UPDATE: This worked, thanks so much!
