    disable text field until another field has text in it

    ericm99

      I have two text fields, and each has it's own button that when pressed enters the current date/time in it's text field. The first is a start time, the second a stop time. I want the stop time text field (or button) to return an error message if the start time has not been entered yet.

       

      The basic script I am using for each button is:

       

      var fld = this.getField("STOPTIME");

       

      fld.value = util.printd("yyyymmdd/HHMM",new Date());

       

      I have tried using an if/else with a "read only" modifier, like:

       

      if (this.rawValue == 1){

       

           STOPTIME.access = "readOnly"

       

      } else {

       

           STOPTIME.access = "";

       

      }

       

      ...but I either incorporated it wrong or it's the wrong script to use altogether, but I'm not sure, and I'm a scripting nube.

       

      Any suggestions?
