Topic: Deleting multiple text fields using JavaScript
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 102464

Hello:

I am running Acrobat 6.0 Pro and I need help deleting multiple text fields based on the field value (or lack of a value).

Here are the details of my project:

I have a single page form with approximately 20 text fields. Based on the size of the project the user may spawn 10 form pages. After the 10 forms are filled in I need to consolidate certain fields into a single page report. I am currently doing this by naming my single page report fields the same as the fields that have been spawned from the original signal page form.

The problem is that more often then not I need to remove certain spawned pages which cause gaps in my single page report when I import the FDF data.

My current solution is to create a button that will delete the empty text fields which will let me realign the fields so that there are no gaps in my report. I am sure there is an easier way and I open to any ideas that may work better.


Thank You
Bill

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
