    Help with linking combo boxes so that some options are made unavailable

    fakesaliva

      Hello!

       

      I'm having trouble setting up an interactive PDF form with multiple combo boxes.

       

      I have designed an interactive PDF form in InDesign CS6 but am doing the final preparation and formatting in Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.

      First of all, I am not sure if I should be using combo boxes or list boxes, but the combo box seemd to look better after I export the PDF and also left the field blank, ready for selection from the drop-down menu.

       

      Basically I have a list of drop-down lists, but not all combinations are compatible. For example, after maing "Selection 1" in "Combo box 1", I need only "Selection 1", "2", and "3" [out of the total 5] to be available in "Combo box 2".

      I need to be able to apply this algorhythm to the next few combo boxes as well.

       

      Moreover, I would need some of the checkboxes disabled [the user won't be able to check them at all]when I make a certain selection in some of the combo boxes.

       

      Needless to say, I don't know any Java, coding or making calculations in LiveCycle Designer, so I don't even know where to begin.

       

      I have attached a screen grab of my form and what I want to achieve.

       

      Any help would be very much appreciated.

       

      Thank you!
