Acrobat FormsCentral Javascript

If I want to add Javascript to the components in a form, my workaround is to export the online form from FormsCentral and save as a PDF, open in Acrobat Pro then use the Tools/Form option to add Javascript to the Submit buttom and textboxes. Is this the right approach? I'm asking because I don't know if there is a straight-forward feature in Acrobat or FormsCentral to do this and if there is something implemented that is easier than this approach, thanks! When I try to create a form through Acrobat Pro it tells me to open FormsCentral to create the form but I want to have the ability to use Javascript in Acrobat to create the form.

    Your workflow is fine. Just wondering what FormsCentral isn't doing for you - why do you need to add the JS?

    If you're working with a PDF exported from FormsCentral, you first have to open it in Acrobat and select: File > Save a Copy


    Then open this new file (it doesn't open automatically) and make your changes in Acrobat. Here's some more info:
