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