I have a PDF document containing a variety of Form Fields. I
am using Acrobat 5.0 – yes I know it is old.
Can someone please tell me… is it possible to have a
Check Box Form Field, that when selected generate a line of text
elsewhere in the same document? I have tried to clone a Form Field
and then change its properties to TEXT instead of CHECK BOX but
that did not work.
I have read some of the HELP files and understand that using
a line of Java might do the trick, but I am Java challenged. Any
help or tips would be more than greatly appreciated.
Yes, you will need to create a text field to receive the text
and then add a "Mouse Up" action to the check box to update the
text field based on whether the check box field is checked or not;
or add a custom calculation script to the added text field.
