Hello,

My Adobe Animate canvas animation is sitting on a html page named index.html.

The index.html page has a html form with name and ID "form1" and this form contains a hidden field form control with name and ID: hfYear

Is it possible to get the text value of the form control 'hfYear' in Adobe Animate and display it in Adobe Animate using the Actions panel scripts?

Hi. Yeah, it is. The code written in the Actions Panel is pure JavaScript and it will be output as-is. Which means there's no compilation/transpilation process. It's like when you write code in any JS or HTML file. So something like this should work: console.log("from Animate", window.parent.parent.document.getElementById("hfYear").value); Please let us know it this is what you want. Regards, JC

Why the "window.parent.parent"?
