    Show/hide objects/fields in PDF application (form) ...

    gtasick

      Hello,

       

      I'm creating a PDF application (form).

       

      The layout is being done in InDesign then the fields/buttons/drop-down boxes are being added in Acrobat Pro.

       

      I have a situation in the application where the user will select an option from a drop-down menu ... let's say the options are "car" and "airplane". (These are just examples.)

       

      when the applicant selects "car" it should only show the following fields ...

       

      • Tires
      • Engine
      • Fuel Economy

       

      When the applicant selects "airplane" it should only show the following fields ...

       

      • Wingspan
      • Max. Altitude
      • Seating Capacity

       

      How do I do this? I only want the applicant to see/access the fields that are relevant to the selections they make earlier in the application.

       

      From what I've found online, "Java Script" is what I need to work with ... but I have no idea how that works.

       

      I have no ability to write code from scratch, but I have been successfull at modifiying existing code.

       

      Some examples or some code that I can copy/paste and modify would be great.

       

      Also, where do I go within Acrobat to access/modify the code?

       

      Thanks in advance!
