CHECK BOX FF

Hi Friends,

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.

Many thanks in advance for your help and time.

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.

You will get more responsed in one of the http://forum.adobe.com/cgi-bin/webx/.3bbeda8b/ Acrobat product Forums rather than the Connect product forum.
