Hello!

I have used a document javascript to make an auto go to next field and it works perfectly right on desktop but does not do anything on Mobile using Reader (Android or iOS). Does something like that is completely impossible on Mobile?

I have this in my doc script:

function tab_next(next_field_name) {
    if (event.willCommit || AFMergeChange(event).length === event.target.charLimit) {
        getField(next_field_name).setFocus();
    }
}

 

and use this for keystroke script:

tab_next("name of next field");

 

Please tell me it’s possible to accomplish something similar on Mobile and how. Thanks!

Hi

 

For Acrobat mobile, JavaScript support includes performing built-in forms calculations, data validation, and data formatting using APIs that are a subset of those supported by the desktop product.

See details here: https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Mobile/js.html

So I’m screwed up! Right? No support for any document scripts at all?

No, Apple and Google put too much bad will.

You can force mobile user to use another app. It’s hard enough to get them use Reader. 🙂
