    Dependant DropDown Lists in Acrobat Pro XI

    jbpalmer4200

      I have searched the forums and found many related discussions but they all seem to be for previous versions of Acrobat. I assume the JavaScript that I have found still work the same way but the method for entering them seems to have changed.

       

      I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro XI. I converted a Word Document to .pdf and I am now adding/editing my fields in Adobe Acrobat Pro. I have added the dropdown fields, named them, added the options for the Item list in the Options tab, and selected Commit selected value immediately. I do not know where to go from here. I am new to Adobe scripting but I am savvy enough to understand code when provided examples.

       

      Here is what I need to do:

       

      I have several dropdown fields created. Each dropdown needs to be dependant on the value selected in the previous dropdown.

       

      DropDown Menus:

       

      Content1 - Should provide a list of subjects: Attendance, Behavior, Math, Organization/Executive Functioning, Reading, Speech/Language, Written Expression

       

      AreaOfWeakness1 - Should provide a list based on the value selected in Content1. If Reading is selected, then Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Reading Fluency, Reading Comprehension, Reading Vocabulary are the options provided. If Math is selected, then Number Sense Math Reasoning and Problem Solving, Math Computational Fluency are the option provided.

       

      InterventionImplemented1 - Should provide a list based on the value selected in AreaOfWeakness1. If Phonemic Awareness is selected, then Phoneme Matching & Phoneme Isolating, Blending & Segmenting Games, Phoneme Blending & Phoneme Segmenting are the options provided.

       

      I have several more dropdown items in sequence but I can figure out the rest if someone can help me with the first three. I need the JavaScript and I also need to know exactly where to enter the script. Most posts I found reference adding script in the Document Level but I can't find that in my version.

       

      Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thom Parkers article https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/js_list_combo_livecycle was helpful for understanding how the process works but was written for an older version and I could not make the transition to Acrobat Pro XI.
