I am trying to populate two text boxes on a form triggered by one selection from a dropdown list.
Each dropdown selection has two attributes that I want to display, with one of them able to be overwritten.
My knowledge is limited but I have managed to get it to work for one attribute running this script on the 'Colour' dropdown Mouse up trigger:-
And adding this custom calculation script to the 'Year' text box:-
(This variable is fixed and can’t be changed by the user).
I'd like to populate a second text box ‘Percentage’, with a colour attribute value (0.75%, 0.50%, 0.00% respectively), that could be overwritten by the user.
I thought I could just extend the array to cover a third variable but I can't make that work.
Can anyone guide me with how to do this?
You can put multiple values in the second variable, separated by a known delimiter (such as "~" or ";") and then use the split method to split that single string into an array of strings, and apply each part to a different field.
If you're interested, I've created a (paid-for) tool that allows you to set up such a field much more easily, without having to write any code. See: http://try67.blogspot.com/2015/07/acrobat-populate-fields-from-dropdown.html
You can also get it from my new web-site, where's there's currently a "soft launch" sale (The discount code is available on the front-page):https://www.try67.com/tool/acrobat-populate-fields-from-dropdown
