    item_id restrictions

    Sturm359 Level 1

      I'm revising some old code used by our company for dynamic stamps that pop up a dialog box for input before the stamp is placed. In the code, "item_id" is used to uniquely identify the various text fields. I noticed that each one is using a four-letter abbreviation, such as "etcn" for "Edit Text field - Customer Name". I have also noticed this in my searches online, in my Acrobat Scripting Guide PDF, as well as in my "All About PDF Stamps..." Kindle book.

       

      Is this 4-character limit for the "item_id" property just a common convention used by programmers, or is it absolutely required and specified somewhere in an Acrobat scripting doc that I have somehow missed? Also, what other restrictions are there to "item_id"?
