    NewB javaScript

    DCentLady

      I have a mac with snow leopard

      Using Acrobat X

      Trying to self teach myself JavaScript for Acrobat X

       

      Got the book "PDF Forms Using Acrobat and LiveCycle Designer

       

      Following instructions to write a script:

       

      Went to Document JavaScripts

      Typed the name for the script 'viewerVersion; clicked the add butoon.  The JavaScript Editor opened.

       

      Started with function viewerVersion

       

      deleted as per instructions

       

      typed:

      if (app.viewerVersion <7.5)

      {

           var msg = "You must use Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader version 7.5 or above to complete this form.";

           app.alert (msg) ;

      }

       

      I click okay, but I get this message at the bottom of the page as well as line 4 highlighted:  SyntaxError:  missing ; before statement 3: at line 4

       

      What have I done incorrectly. 

       

      Thanks in advance
