Hi,

 

I'm using acrobat pro to create a form.

 

I need a button that when pressed will copy text from a hidden text box and allow me to paste it into another program.

 

Is this doable?

 

Thanks in advance.

Use a visible text field. Users can then copy and paste the text.

Thanks for the reply.

 

Ideally, it needs to be hidden and a simple button to click. There will be a lot of text to copy and it would be likely part of it will be missed.

 

I'm no use in JS, but I assume there would be some sort of functionality to allow this?

You can create a plugin (written in C/C++) for this.
