Hello, my question is how to check one string in one field for example:
if in fill_20 the string is "Sofia" or SOFIA or sOfia or all combinations with lowercase letters and uppercase letters and so..
If fill_20 is with content=Sofia and all combination with lowercase and  uppercase letters then in fill_30 write value 100 if the string is different than Sofia then in fill_30 write 80?

The first two conditions will verify if the text is EXACTLY "София" (irrelevant of upper/lower-case letters). The third will will check if it is anywhere within the string (also case-insensitive). So if you want to allow for other characters (like a space or other text) then use only the third if-statement.

In Adobe Acrobat DC you can use:

if ( testString.trim().toUpperCase() == "СОФИЯ")

Hi tanerz18448860​,

perhaps this is also a good way for all Acrobat versions

var testString = this.getField("fill_6").valueAsString;

if ( testString.match(/\s?софия\s?/i) != null ) {

    event.value = 100;

} else {

    event.value = 80;

}

If so, have fun

I need help and today.

Now need to check strings with country if  in field 1 the country is USA  then in field 2 write 50, in field 3 write 80.
If the country in field 1 is  Brazil then in field 2 write 40, in field 3 write 70.
If the country in field 1 is Spain then in field 2 write 35 in field 3 write 65.
And so and so.


How can I modify this to work with many checks and if's functions?

var testString = this.getField("fill_6").valueAsString;

if ( testString.match(/софия/i) != null )

{

event.value = 100;

}

else

{

event.value = 80;

}

I do it with this codes and it's work..
var testString = this.getField("Dropdown7").valueAsString;

if ( testString.match(/Япония/i) != null )

{

event.value = 5500;

}

if ( testString.match(/Австрия/i) != null )

{

event.value = 35;

}

if ( testString.match(/Австралия/i) != null )

{

event.value = 35;

}

if ( testString.match(/Азербайджан/i) != null )

{

event.value = 30;

}


I want to do it with masives:

I find this codes:

var c30 = ["Зимбабве", "Заир", "Етиопия"];

var c35 = ["Дания", "Гърция", Германия];

var x = "Зимбабве";

var rez=0;

if(c30.indexOf(x)>=0){

rez = 30;

}

if(c35.indexOf(x)>=0){

rez = 35;

}

But ho can I implement it in java script in pdf forms?

It should work, but this will only be for exact matches, ie it won't work if you add a space after the string.

If you want further help you really have to start providing more exact descriptions of the issues you're having. "It doesn't work" is meaningless to us.

Why are you using the "rez" variable if you're applying the value to event.value directly? Get rid of rez and do it directly.

Also, you need to carefully look at the curly brackets in your code and make sure that they are set up correctly.

Try this:

var c35 = ["Дания", "Гърция", "Германия"];

var x = "Зимбабве";

var rez = 0;

} else if (c35.indexOf(x)>=0) {

    rez = 35;

event.value = rez;

This is not a good solution. If the text in question is not in either of the arrays then the value of the field will just stay as it was before...
