Hi

 

In Adobe Acrobat DC, I am trying to put custom keystroke script (
event.value = event.value.toString().toUpperCase() 😉 on one field

so that it can convert all entered lower case letter to upper case. It works until that form is on my machine but as soon as I share that form on email, the script fails and form does not change the lower case to upper case.

 

Can you please guide me on this , How to resolve this issue?

May be that the receiver of the mail doesn't use Acrobat Reader.

Many PDF viewers don't support scripting well, or at all. This includes almost all applications on mobile devices as well as non-Adobe software or browser plugins. If the file is opened in any of those apps it's very likely that your script won't work.
