Form Fields

I am fairly new to creating form fields and I am wondering if there are ways to do two things. The first thing I want to do is to attach a user name to a form field. For example, if someone fills out a calendar date for when a bill got sent out, Adobe will automatically attach their name to the filled field. Hopefully the name isn't visible without clicking on the field to check who filled in that part of the form.

The second thing I would like to accomplish is to disable a field if another field does not have the requisite key words. For example, if I have a date field for when money was moved from liability to revenue, that field is not active unless the invoice type contains the word "retainer". Thanks!!

	event.target.readonly = false;
} else {
