I've got a field on my pdf form that will return a blank value (i.e., event.value = "") based on the calculation script I programmed. In certain instances I'd like to be able to manually enter data in this field, but the script always takes over and replaces my entry with a blank value. Is there a way to override this?
The script has to be smart enough to look at your fields/input and decide not to take over. The script is in charge.
You basically need to tell the script that if the source of the event is that field itself, then it should not perform the automatic calculation.
