I have a web form that displays an editable pdf document. When a user clicks a button the form will get validated. If one of the fields being validated has the focus its value will not get updated when I need to do the validation. For example, if I am validating the First Name field and I type text in it and then click on a button (from the web) to cause validation, the document says the field is invalid because there is no data. If I hit tab on the field to focus a new field the validation works fine. How can I cause the field to get updated? I have tried to create an empty form field and focus to that first but that does not work.
Are you saying that this button is not part of the PDF form?
Nope, I have a button on the website that the user clicks to send a validation request.
