I am having issues figuring out how to change the currency symbol on a form based on the conversion choice the user makes.
I have created a dropdown list of a few countries. and I would like my currency symbols to change automatically once the user picks a country.
Preferably I would want it to be defaulted to US dallars, and then the user has the option to switch it thru the drop down selection.
You may need to employ Custom Format script with some conditional statements and using the util.printf() method.
Reference have somescript examples with that method that you may employ in your PDF:
It's possible, but will require using a custom-made script, as was mentioned.
Also, you need to take into account that it won't convert the values, just the symbol. For example, if you change $10 to €10 the value is not the same...
I have the actual conversion working. Its just the symbol that still says "$"
How do you know what the current exchange rate is?
But a PDF file is static, and exchange rates change every day (if not more frequently)...
correct. but for the time being i just need it for rough estimation. currently I need to change the currency symbol.
Follow the advice given above. You will need to write your own custom Format script to achieve it.
