Quick question:

 

Does anyone have documentation on how barcodes fields are supposed to work in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro? The SDK References don't mention them except under usage rights and I've been stumbling through the dark on making best use of them. 

 

did have a specific question, but it's escaping me right now 😢

They're undocumented, but basically act like any other field. You can set their value via the value property, make them visible or hidden using the display property, define their location using the rect property, etc.

I've been able to determine most of that. What I want to know is how to interact with their special features. Ex: Change symbology or barcode parameters.

 

But specifically (I remembered!), I wanted to know how to set the "Reference to published form:" value. I've been using it like a title underneath each barcode, but it is not unique if you Copy/Paste the barcode field to replicate it, even if you change the new field's name, value or tooltip. 

 

I should probably just use a separate field for sanity's sake, but I wanted to know the forbidden knowledge.\

Sorry, I don't have an answer for that straight away. I could look into it, but it's possible those properties are not accessible via JS at all.

I thought that might be the case. I do appreciate the effort, though it's nothing urgent.

 

I just wish for more complete documentation! 😅🥰🥰

 

Either way, thanks for the help! 🙂
