    Using AJAX inside PDF to update fields

    Brenlei

      Hi,

       

      I have a text field in a pdf document. I want to capture the contents of this field during the onBlur event and pass it to an AJAX call to retrieve information from a database, and then populate other fields based on the returned data.  I have searched for days and can not find an example of this done anywhere (a few people asking but no responses).

       

      What I can do.

      • I can setAction for the onBlur event for the textfield and capture the value.
      • I can use this value in a switch to populate other fields and other funky stuff
      • I can write a web-service to return necessary data.

       

      What I need help with

      • Writing the JS code in the PDF that can communicate with the web-service.

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated.
