I'm building a user-editable form and I've noticed that when values are added, some fields don't update until another field is altered. It doesn't matter what filed. It's as if they're calculating one step behind.
For instance, if I have a field 'output', which displays the sum of input1 and input2.
With nothing filled out, output displays '0'.
I enter 3 to input1, but output still displays '0'.
I enter 5 to input2, and output displays '3'.
I delete the value in input2, and output displays '8'.
It just keeps going round and round, one calculation behind.
I can't seem to figure out why it's doing this. Is there some limit on the number of fields on a form, before it starts to act funny?
Anyway, much appreciation for any direction.
Change the field calculation order.
Where can I find that option?
Is this like the Tab Order setting?
Found it. It is in the same area as Tab Order.
I've got over 400 fields on this damn form. Gonna take a while to swim through the order, they was Acrobat has it set up...
Thank you, kindly.
Yes, you can find it also at the More dropdown menu.
I assum items higher on the list calculate first, so any change will cascade down?
Thank you very much. That solved nearly all my issues.
