Hello:

 

I am building a form with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Version 2022.001.20117.

I need to redestribute a fillable form through internet.

 

I need a date field that must contain (in catalan):

04 de maig de 2022

I have used date custom format like this : dd \de mmmm \de yyyy

"de" must be literal. I use "\" char trying to avoid "d" being conseidered as day.

It doesn't work

Anyone knows how to get it?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Frank

Use workaround with two fields, lets call them 'field1' and 'field2'.
In field1 you will select date and then hide it to show field2 with desired format, when you click on field2 to change date it will be hidden and focus set to field1.
1. In field1 use format 'dd mmmm yyyy',
as 'On Blur' action use this:

if(event.value){
event.target.display = display.hidden;
this.getField("field2").display = display.visible;}

as 'Validation' script use this:

var str = event.value;
var date = str.split(" ");
if(e

I think you need to double \ the string so it looks like this

dd \\de mmmm \\de yyyy

Hi,

 

Using the double backslash it works for me, the settings are

BarlaeDC_0-1652350343315.png

type in date such as

BarlaeDC_1-1652350374781.png

And the date is displayed as

BarlaeDC_2-1652350400030.png

If you type the date directly it works. But if you choose it from pickup calendar it does'nt work. I need users can select date from pickup calendar.

var date = str.split(" ");
if(event.value)
this.getField("field2").value = date[0]+" de "+date[1]+" de "+date[2];
else
this.getField("field2").value = "";

2. in field2 as 'On Focus' action use this:

event.target.display = display.hidden;
this.getField("field1").display = display.visible;
this.getField("field1").setFocus();

Now put fields on top of each other so they are in same place.

Here is sample how it should work:

Muy buena idea, pero funciona una vez. Si lo guardan y lo copian para alguien más o desean cambiar la fecha, ya no podrán volver a seleccionarla del calendario. Alguna solución para esto???

This is such an awesome solution! 
Is there a way to add instructional text, i.e., "Enter date here". Once the user enters the date, this instructional text will disappear. I believe this would need to be added to the field2 code???
Thank you in advance!
