I currently have a dropdown menu with the following options: FHA, USDA, VA, Uninsured, FNMA, Conventional Insured. What I need is a script that based on the selection from the dropdown, it will take information from another field in the form (UPB) and multiply it by a specific number (the numbers are different based on the dropdown selections). Is there a way to create a script to achieve this?
I only know what I've learned from poking around in acrobat myself--any help would be greatly appreciated!
You can use something like this as the custom calculation script of the target field (change the name of the drop-down in line #1 and the values as needed, of course):
var s = this.getField("Dropdown1").valueAsString; var v = Number(this.getField("UPB").valueAsString); if (s=="FHA") event.value = 5 * v; else if (s=="USDA") event.value = 10 * v; // etc. else event.value = "";
This worked perfectly, try67! Thank you so much! ~
