What I'd like to do is, when I select a name from Dropdown1, then Dropdown2, Dropdown3, Dropdown4, Dropdown5 would show that name but would trigger the export value (of that particular drop down) to go into the associated text field.
Using Acrobat X pro.
Why not fill all the other text fields from the first drop down?
Reduces the number of fields, user input, refuces chance of errors in your code.
There is an example in the tutorials in the PDF Library.
That's not what I'm looking to do. I want to keep it as it is, too much to change now. And, besides if I can't get the script I'm looking for, then the form is done. If I can get the help I need then that also will be great.
I have this script so far, it works to put the name of the first drop down into the other drop downs but doesn't trigger them to populate the text field with the export values of each drop down. That's the part I need help with. How would I get the drop downs to trigger without having to click on it? This is the script I use in Dropdown1:
this.getField("NameFirst").value = event.value; ///the person's SSN
this.getField("workClass1").value = event.value; ///the person's work classification
this.getField("payRate1").value = event.value; ///the person's rate of pay
and so on...
If you can help please do. I'd really like to get this done. It probably isn't too complicated but I just cannot find the solution.
