Hi,

Please would like your help, I'm using the following applied on a dropdownlist:
------------------------------------------------

var nButton = app.alert({
cMsg: "Do you agree to the terms and conditions specified by your user agreement with XYZ Corporation?\n\n If you click No, the document will close.",
cTitle: "Legal Notice",
nIcon: 2,
nType: 2
});

if (nButton === 3) {
this.closeDoc();
}
------------------------------------
I don't know how to customize it to appear when user select a specific value in the list. In addition, if user "agreed" how to unhide a text in the document to show its agreed.

Sorry if its too much but appreciate your great help

First things first.  Put the code in the custom validation script for the dropdown.

Surround your code with an "if" block that keys off of the selection that needs to display the message. 

if(event.value == "Selection")
{
    var nButton = app.alert({
        cMsg: "Do you agree to the terms and conditions specified by your user agreement         with XYZ Corporation?\n\n If you click No, the document will close.",
        cTitle: "Legal Notice",
        nIcon: 2,
        nType: 2
   });

    if

Where is the hidden text? Is it in a text field or text annotation?

Just unhide the field based on the button choice. 

Here's an article on the topic:

https://www.pdfscripting.com/public/Hiding-and-Showing-Form-Fields.cfm

 

this.getField("PopupText").display = (nButton == 4)?display.visible:display.hidden;
