Hello Adobe Wizards!
Here's what I'm going for. I have a "submit" button at the bottom of a form with looots of editable fields. 2 very important fields are "Name" and "SID"- for the name and ID number of the client. I want the submit button to save the .pdf with the file name " 'Name', 'SID', TimeStamp" where TimeStamp is a automated timestamp created at the time the form is submitted.
It would also be helpful if I could have the "submit" button enter the same file name actually on the form, in a text field I have on the top of the first page. I have started that script but can only figure out how to include the SID field (see below). I'm swimming in code that I don't understand!! Someone- throw me a life jacket!
Here's my best crack at the script that includes the SID and TimeStamp in a text box at the top of my form.
// get the current date object var oNow = new Date(); // get the milliseconds from the Epoch date var fTime = oNow.getTime(); // trim to seconds var fSeconds = fTime / 1000; // truncate to seconds var fTimeStamp = Math.floor(fSeconds) // set the SID field to a variable var fSID = this.getField('SID'); // populate the 'TimeStamp' field's value this.getField('TimeStamp').value = fSID + fTimeStamp;
Thank you all!
