Hello everyone, I would like to automatically add the document name to the footer of an Adobe PDF form. I use the Adobe Acrobat Pro version from the Creative Cloud. Is there a solution here?
getField("Text1").value = documentFileName;
But the correct code depends on when you want the code to set the field value and where the code is placed. If you provide more information about your workflow, we could probably provide more help.
If you use the code above place it as a doc-level script, so that it will update each time you open the file.
Can someone explain this more? I don't understand where or what I'm supposed to do?
Delete all the default code that is created and replace it with the line of code above. Click OK and save the file, and it will execute each time you open it.
I want to show and hide a video on a page with a button What should I do?
In Adobe Acrobat DC
The problem (or feature, depending on how you look at it, I guess) with this Action is that it's a stamper, ie the name it adds is static. If you rename the file after running it it will still show the old file-name. That might be desired in some cases, but not in others. If you want it to be dynamic and always show the current file-name then it needs to be done using a field that is updated whenever the file is opened, as described above.
Thanks for the Note with the automatic update. I have an empty document and would like to display only the document name here, for example.
How to proceed then?
First I create a text field and give it a name, e.g. "DK_01".
Where do I enter the script so that it is updated when I open it?
PS. I would also set the field's defaultValue property in the code, so it doesn't clear when the form is reset.
Many thanks for the great support. It worked. Thanks a lot.
Now I just have to check the default settings you suggested.
Basically just duplicate that line of code, changing value for defaultValue.
