hi everyone,

I need help on Acrobat, I made a script, it works, but when I save it doesn't work anymore.

 

 

my code : 

var checkBox1 = this.getField('companyLogoonsignage');

 

checkBox1.setAction('MouseUp', 'validate(checkBox1, "total2")');

 

function validate(field, formTextField) {

    if (field.isBoxChecked(0)) {

        this.getField(formTextField).value = '80';

    }

    else {

        this.getField(formTextField).value = '0';

    }

}

pose here

I have some sort of code compression and it doesn't work anymore so how do I keep my code as it is, if you have any improvements for the code, I take it.

 

sorry for my poor English

You should not include the setAction command in your script. This only needs to execute once (if at all), and it won't work in Reader. Also, the "validate" function should be defined either under the field where it's being called, or (better yet) as a doc-level script.

Set the field as read-only to block the user from changing its value.

You'll need to explain first what you're trying to achieve, exactly. What does the check-box has to do with the validation of the "total2" field? If you want the value of the text field to be dependent on that of the check-box use a Calculation script, instead. Then it will execute each time any field in the file (including the check-box) is edited.

So do the final totals no problem: properties > calculation > the value corresponds to/to the sum(+) > checked all the boxes I need

 

I know how to do addition and multiplication, but I don’t know how to block the possibility for a user to change a number field. Do you have any solutions for me?

You need to be more specific. The read-only property applies to each field separately.

What exactly did you do, and what was the result?

Lock and Read-Only are not the same thing. And don't do it for all fields, if you only want to block some...

Is the purpose of your code simply to populate a text field with "80" if a certain check-box is ticked, and with "0" if it's not ticked? Do you need to apply the exact same code for multiple text fields, just based on different check-boxes, or only for one?

Overall yes I just want when I check the box at the end of the line in my field it writes 80 and when it doesn't check nothing or 0. And there will be other boxes but not with the same numbers and not the same fields.

You don't need a function for that, or most of the rest of your code, either.

Just use the following as the custom Calculation script of the text field:

 

event.value = (this.getField("Checkbox1").isBoxChecked(0)) ? 80 : 0;

 

Adjust the name of the check-box field in the code as needed.

So, thank you, it almost works, there is a weird thing it acts like a subtraction on my final total which is a sum of all the fields at the end of the line, I find it doesn't make sense?

Check the fields calculation order. Make sure the total field is at the end of the list.

Where does you use the script?

Why doesn't you define the function at document level?
