Clear the form menu action or the "this.resetForm();" script only resets the values of the fields.
There is no trap for the reset or clear action so even if you created a button to reset and clear the form fields with the read only property set, you would still have the issue of the user using the menu option. You can add a document level script to clear the read only property of fields when the form is opened.
I don't think Adobe Reader has the option to clear the form.
Are you using the drop down menu in Acrobat to clear the form? If so I think that will clear every thing.
You can use the OK button to create a field to Clear the Form.
Then go to properties and choose Actions, then Reset a Form.
Then uncheck the fields you don't want to be cleared.
This will work in Reader.
yes, you're right. I dont think I'll have any issue with the reader and if anything I'll just create a button to clear fields if needed.. Thanks for all the help!
