Hello, 

 

I am new to Acrobat/Javascript and have been using tutorials on here to come up with a barebones worksheet. I am using this code to show different text fields & layers based on drop down selection but the text fields for HHG & NTS are not showing up when testing. This is the code I am using;

 

var layers = this.getOCGs();
var v = event.value;
for (var i = 0; i < this.layers.length; i++) {
if (layers[i].name == "HHGNTSc1" && v == "Household Goods (HHG)") {
layers[i].state = true;
this.getField("Group1").display = display.visible;
this.getField("Group2").display = display.hidden;
} else if (layers[i].name == "HHGNTSc1" && v == "Storage (NTS)") {
layers[i].state = true;
this.getField("Group1").display = display.visible;
this.getField("Group2").display = display.hidden;
} else if (layers[i].name == "UBc1" && v == "Unaccompanied Baggage (UB)") {
layers[i].state = true;
this.getField("Group2").display = display.visible;
this.getField("Group1").display = display.hidden;
} else if (v == "Select Shipment Type") {
layers[i].state = false;
this.getField("Group1").display = display.hidden;
this.getField("Group2").display = display.hidden;
} else {
layers[i].state = false;
this.getField("Group1").display = display.hidden;
this.getField("Group2").display = display.hidden;
}
}

 

Thank you.

Where did you place the code?

Did you make sure that the value of the event is really want you're comparing it to in your code? If it's off even by a single character it won't work.

Your script shows the fields only when the layer with the name "HHGNTSc1" is the last layer.
