What technology to add conditional logic to a PDF form?


Level 1


I'd like to add some simple conditional logic to a PDF form. eg: if the user clicks on a certain check box or chooses an item from a drop-down menu, then add some text to a field. Nothing too complicated. Also some basic math on some fields based on the user input.

The form will be printed out; not submitted to a database.

I'm currently using Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.

I've got some basic Javascript coding skills.

I'd like to know what Adobe technology would be appropriate for this use case? Is LiveCycle overkill? It seems that the workbench was included in some previous Acrobat distributions but is no longer the case?

Searching the web is leading to a number of deprecated Adobe technologies. I just need to be pointed in the right direction.

Thank you!
