Offline Scenario - How to Automatically Manipulate Fields

Hello all,

Good day! I would just like to ask in Adobe Interactive Forms using ABAP if its possible to modify fields automatically?

So example scenario is let's say this a table with a modifiable field sorted by Operation and there is a field where you can place a value A, B,and C.

Ex structure in PDF

Sub-Operation

Catalog - Drop Down

Priority (A, B, C).

There is another table in the PDF form. Sorted by catalog and what it will is that it will populate the A, B, C fields based on the Catalog. Sorted by Catalog.

Ex Structure

Catalog

A

B

C

Also keep in mind that since you can input the Catalog in the first table, the 2nd table should be appended.

Not sure if this is possible via ABAP in the offline scenario, though if this is required using Java Script your help will still be welcome (just let me know how to code it in the events).

Thanks and Regards

    For a dynamic form like that, you will certainly have to code it in Formcalc or Javascript. you need to check the Adobe Help for examples.

    It provides lots of examples on how to code in Formcalc and Javascript. You may even want to join the Live Cycle Designers group over at google groups for specific coding questions.
