Hi, we are looking into creating an interactive PDF that allows users to find their product size based on physical measurements they just measured.
The simple version is where a user fills in the measured dimension in a textbox, and based on the number, a size comes out. We envision this to be a checkmark icon next to a certain size that is already displayed. So for example: A user inputs 50 (cm) as an input, and a checkmark appears next to a text displaying 'Size M', as an output.
The slightly more advanced version is where the output is based on two numerical inputs. So user inputs a first value, which narrows down the choices, and then a second value, which defines the output. So for example: there are 9 sizes: A user inputs 30 (cm) as a first input, which narrows the choices to 3 sizes, and then inputs 40 (cm) for as a second input, which defines the final size so a checkmark appears next to a text displaying 'Size S'.
Is Acrobat able to do these two? Can someone give we some pointer where to start? We have some general programming skills in-house.
The latter would require a more complex script, that will have to take into account the values of both text fields, and enable/disable as well as tick/untick the check-boxes accordingly. It's especially tricky if you want the user to also be able to change the default selection in the check-boxes to something else.
