I have already created a Form, but the issue here is that the form has to be sent to many people for Approval. Each Approver has a specific clearance Section of the Form. the Query here is that they need to fill their sections with the required comments and email the form back to the sender. the sender has to then send the form to the next Approver. is there a way that if the approver fills certain fields they get Auto readonly while the other fields that are not filled remain fillable.
Note All the Approvers have only Adobe reader so cannot use Create and Distribute.
Whats the best way in acrbat because if I use buttons any one can click the button and it get readonly is there a better way
This is a feature of Adobe Sign.
Go into Prepare Form Mode and change the form to an Adobe Sign Form. This is an entry in the "More" popup menu in the panel on the right side of the Adrobat window in prepare form mode.
Cannot use Adobe sign because the approver changes per form.
Is there a way where creating buttons and that restrict the fillable fields to what the Approver has to Approve and those get read only as the Approvers keep changing per person.
Ok, so that is more complicated than you can do for free. Have you checked out the Adobe Sign Workflows
This answer is Yes, but you are asking for something that is complicated. You'll need a developer. Contact me though this forum or through www.windjack.com
i have created buttons, locked fields as per field names.
Created a Approval date and time stamp with the below code
is there a way to display the Word Approved when the Approved button is clicked and Decline when the decline button is clicked.
var fieldsToLock = ["Remark 1", "Remark 2", "Remark 3", "Remark 4","Remark 5", "Remark 6", "Detail 1", "Detail 2", "Detail 3", "Detail 4", "Detail 5", "Detail 6", "Days 2", "Days 3", "Days 4", "Days 5", "Days 6", "Amount 1", "Amount 5", "Amount 6", "Approver Name", "Approver Code", "Approver Stamp", "Approved", "Rejected", "Approver Stamp"];
for (var i in fieldsToLock) this.getField(fieldsToLock[i]).readonly = true;
var gD = new Date();
this.getField("Approver Stamp ").value = util.printd("dd/mmm/yyyy hh:MM tt",gD);
Yes, how do you want the text to be displayed?
An easy way is to create a form field or text annotation and put the Word "Approved" or "Declined" in it.
have put 2 buttons so if the Approved button is clicked it the field should show Approved.
if the decline button is clicked it should show decline. what code do i write for that
If you have two separate buttons you don't need any code, use the Show/Hide action on the MouseUp
But if you are interested in the code, here's an article and sample file:
are you the same person from this article
Tried the below codes from your article.
How do i add a script to insert a page or button with a popup to that ask for file location
Yes, I am the same person who wrote the article.
Do you want a file location? or for a file to be opened?
Browsing for a file is a privileged operation, but there are ways to do it.
