    javascript on page open item

      Hi (Acrobat CC)
      I've become stuck on an issue. Please excuse me, I'm a designer not programmer, and have struggled to find a solution.

       

      I have created a form which contains an 'on page open' javascript to fill a field with the following:

       

      var today = new Date();

      this.getField("Today").value = "GCF-01-" + util.printd("mmddyyyy", today);

      this.getField("Today").readonly = true;

       

      this performs the task I require, but I want this field 'locked' when populated, so that when the form is opened again the original date remains rather than being updated.

       

      Would someone be able to help please?
