Hello, I am rather new to creating Dynamic stamps. They have come in handy for our courtstaff and stamping documents. The recent challenge I have is creating a stamp that has app.response for date, which works great, but I also want to have a feature to do some kind of drop down or radio button selection to input a location into the stamp from 3 choices. I had a test blank pdf open and the stamp file open as well to make changes, save and test. turns out the script i used works great for what i need but only if i have the stamp file open behind whatever document i'm stamping. Please help, i need the script to work with the stamp alone, without having it open in the back ground.

 

this is the script i have:

 

if ((event.source.forReal)&&(event.source.stampName == "#NoComp"))
{
this.getField("Clerk").value = identity.name;
this.getField("Date").value = app.response("Enter Date:");
var cRtn = app.popUpMenu(["Select Court Branch","SAN LUIS OBISPO BRANCH","PASO ROBLES BRANCH","GROVER BRANCH"]);
if (cRtn) this.getField("Location").value = cRtn;
}

Here is the file you have to place in the Stamps folder.
Then you will find it in your stamps and you will be able to fill in it via a dialog box.
