I am trying to create a form With Acrobat pro where when I use the dropdown to select a courthouse, and it populates three text boxes in the form. I have gotten it to work partially.  But only for some of the selected options. I have checked everything and it all looks the same so I am not sure what the issue is.  I have tried going in and fixing the options that are not working but am having no success. of the 8 options I have in the drop down menu, only 4 work. 

The ones that do not work are, West Covina, Santa Monica,  Long Beach, and Compton. 

 

Here is the script I am running:

 

var dropdownValue = this.getField("Dropdown1").value;

switch (dropdownValue){
case "Stanley Mosk":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "111 North Hill Street"
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Los Angeles, 90012"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "Central District"
break;

 

case "West Covina":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "1427 W Covina Pkwy"
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "West Covina, 91790"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "East District"
break;


case "Pasadena":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "300 E Walnut St"
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Pasadena,91101"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "Northeast District"
break;

 

case "Compton":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "200 West Compton Blvd."
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Compton, 90220"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "South Central District"
break;

 

case "Inglewood":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "1 Regent Street"
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Inglewood, 90301"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "Southwest District"
break;

 

case "Santa Monica":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "1725 Main Street"
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Santa Monica, 90401"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "West District"
break;

 

case "Norwalk":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "12720 Norwalk Blvd"
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Norwalk, 90650"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "Southeast District"
break;

 

case "Longbeach":
this.getField("CourtST").value = "275 Magnolia Ave "
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = "Long Beach, 90802"
this.getField("CourtBR").value = "South District"
break;

case "-Select-":
this.getField("CourtST").value = ""
this.getField("CourtCZ").value = ""
this.getField("CourtBR").value = ""
break;

}

Make sure those choices are correctly spelled in the dropdown field.

Where do you use script?

If you use it in dropdown field replace,

this:

var dropdownValue = this.getField("Dropdown1").value;

switch (dropdownValue){

 

with this:

switch (event.value){
