Populating data to another field from Adobe form

Hi.

I have an Adobe interactive form that when a user select (from a drop-down list) or type in data in a field, I want another field to populate only data relate to input user entered on first field.

I know this is possible if I don't use Adobe form template, but can I do this with Adobe interactive form (created from SFP).

Thanks for all your help in advance.

John

    Hi John,

    This is Surely possible,

    Do this:

    If u r using ActiveX or Native type of Dropdown, u may find some autogenerated codes on certain events.

    At the exit event, u'll find some code where in a place will be given where u can write the code after selection has been made, there u can place ur code as given below:

    // START OF CODE - TO RUN AFTER SELECTION HAS BEEN MADE

    var G = "Green";

    var R = "Red";

    if (this.rawValue == "Key that is returned to context after dropdown is selected")

    {

    BodyPage.TextField.rawValue = G;

    }

    else if(this.rawValue == "Some other key for which u wud liketo change value in the text field")

    {

    BodyPage.TextField.rawValue = R;

    }

    else

    {

    }

    // END OF CODE - TO RUN AFTER SELECTION HAS BEEN MADE

    Hope this helps..

    Thanks,

    Amita
