    how to stop PDF from saving


      i have a script to check the fields in a document to see if they are filled out or not.

      it returns the fields that are incomplete. the full code is:



      var emptyFields = [];

      for(var i = 0;i<this.numFields;i++)

      {var f = this.getField(this.getNthFieldName(i));



      if(emptyFields.length > 0)

      {app.alert("You Must Fill In The Following Required Fields:\n" + emptyFields.join("\n"));}

      else f.readonly = true;


      now, what i want it to do is, if there are any missing fields, it will stop the document from saving/save as/print.

      and if everything is filled out, it will save/save as/print as a read only document.

      right now, i have this code under "Document will save"


      currently, the alert pops up, but still saves the document anyway.

      on a side note, is it possible to make the red borders on the required fields dissappear?


      any and all help would be appreciated.
