Topic: Populate Combo Box Javascript, 1 Attachments

Hi there

I need a combo box to selection to populate other combo boxes with a different value to the export value. This isnt a problem.

However, and this is the hard bit, I cant use a custom calculation script in the second combo box because the second combo box needs to be editable also.

Basically cbo 1 is selecting "semester 1" and cbo2 is populated with teaching start day, cbo3 is teaching start month, etc.

Finally, I need the script to refresh cbo 2, and 3 at the time of selection.

I have managed to get this to work fine in Acrobat 5.0 using a keystroke script in cbo 1, however the script does some weird things in PC version 6.0 and on a macintosh version 6.0.

I wonder if any have some thoughts. Here is the js script attached
