Lock Drowdown after selection

Is it possible to make a drop down menu either locked or "view only" once a selection is made?  I'm creating a coversheet for my team to choose their contact signature but I don't want our customers to see we created a dropdown as that seems somewhat impersonal.  Or any other ideas with this same type of functionality that would allow me to only create one form versus a form for each employee?   Thank you!

It is possible but what if user change mind or pick wrong selection and want to change it?

Even if it's locked or read only it will still retain look of dropdown field it's better to hide it if it's possibility for you. For example:create text field also on same place as dropdown and hide it and use calculate to get dropdown value, when you choose dropdown value, hide dropdown and show text field with selected value.

Hi!  I do currently have the text fields hidden depending on what selection they choose.  How would I go about hiding the drowndown after they make their selection?  Thank you for you help!

You can hide it like this:

add empty selection with value (example 0) and use this code:

if(event.value != 0){
event.target.display = display.hidden;}

but then you would need another way to unhide it.

Yes, but it's not a good idea. What if you want to change your selection? A better option is to use a button to set the fields in the file as read-only (and hide itself), and then click it when you're done.

I'm not super concerned if they have to start over since the form only has 4 sections but I like the idea of the button!  I hadn't thought of that. When you say hide itself, do you mean hide the button or the text fields?  If you mean button, how do I hide it?   Lets say I wanted to use my original method, how would I go about doing that? 

Thank you!

Original method:

As the custom validation script of the drop-down enter the following script:

event.target.readonly = true;

 

Button method:

It will hide itself and make the fields in the file read-only. For example:

this.getField("Dropdown1").readonly = true;

this.getField("Text2").readonly = true;

this.getField("Radio3").readonly = true; // etc.

event.target.display = display.hidden;

The read only for the dropdown perfectly!  Thank you so much!  I had been going crazy to trying to figure this out.  I really appreciate this.  I'm going to give the button option a try as well!

Ok sorry need some more help.  I may have misunderstood and that is why you said doing it my way was a bad idea.  I assumed if you exited the document, upon reopening the document, it would then reopen the drop down menu but it remained as read only.  I tried the button method and it's doing the same thing on exit.  Am I doing it wrong or is that what it's meant to do?   Maybe I'm thinking too much into this..

There's no reason it would change back... You should save the finished file under a new name and then go back to the (editable) original file afterwards.

Hi there!  I'm having some issues with this same form.  I nixed the above items but seem to be having issues with what should be a simple conditional drop down box and text field.  It's working for almost all of my items but not for 3 of them and I can't figure out why.  I've redone the code multiple times and checked and rechecked for errors over the last 2 days.  Here is what I've written in the Custom Format Script and the bold/red items towards the bottom aren't showing/hiding the text fields.  I can't figure out how to upload a copy of the form but would be happy to do so if that would help.  Thank you!!!

Double-check the spelling of this item. Even a single space at the end of it, or one letter that's upper-case instead of lower-case, will cause it to not match the string in your code.

I don't have the share option, bummer!  Maybe that's not an option on Pro 2017.   I did check the dropdown items as well and couldn't find anything wrong with them.

Yeah, I found that error on a few others but isn't the reason for the error on these 3.  I've even deleted them and re-typed making sure no extra spaces or anything were entered.  I've even gone as far as copy/paste to make sure they are spelled the same.  It just seems so weird that everything else works and these 3 don't when essential I used the same code for everything and just changed the item names.  I'm stumped!

Pro 2017 doesn't work with Document Cloud, only free DC services. If you subscribe to a DC plan you'll be able to use this option. But if you have dropbox, or Google Drive, you can share the link here in the chat.

The extra space or typo is not necessarily on the script part, right-click on the "VUL Protector" field, select Properties from the context menu. In the "Text Field Properties" dialogue box go to the "General" tab.

 

Verify the field name too.

 

If there are actually any empty spaces after the field name text, you can place the mouse cursor at the end of the field name then hit the delete key a few times. You'll be able to notice if there was an empty space or not.

 

Worst case scenario, it is even a better practice to create the new field from scratch and delete the problematic field. However, from the way is looking, it could also be that if the field VUL Protector is a calulated field maybe readjusting the fields calculation order can fix this.

Hello!  I fixed my error above; had to redo the entire dropdown menu which stinks.  I'm pretty much done with my form but a co-worker pointed out something I didn't initially notice.  one of the dropdown boxes doesn't save the selection and reverts back to the Default selection only after you "save" the form.  The code I'm using for this box was based off a sample I found so I'm sure it's just my lack of knoweldge in coding.  The only area it seems to work is Format > Custom Format Script:

Seems like one of the dropdown is reverting because of a calulcated field.  Have you checked where the custome calculation scripts are running from in thos etext fields?

I'm not skilled enough in this to know where to look for that I guess.  In the Dropdown properties, I have the code in the Format Tab then in the Custom Format Script.  Would it be better suited in a different location? I've tried a few different other areas like moving it to Calculate then Custom Calculation Script but it doesn't function properly.
