Hi there, new to this forum so please bear with me.
I'm in charge of converting about 1500 documents to PDF. Once that has been done we need to open the document up in Acrobat 6.0.2 Professional and add a form (I think) which enables us to control that whenever the document is opened via a webbrowser and is printed the printout must contain the text: Date of print: yyyy-mm-dd.
The text and date must be visible on both the printout and on the screen.
To be able to do this I have tried numerous ways of adding form fields, naming them, adding java to them and so on. It all works OK until the next day and the document displays the yesterday date.
An example of what I did:
In the document I click the text field tool.
Once done I go to the text field properties and selct the general tab and name the the name filed to "Today"
Depending on what java I found i will also select the proper date under the format tab.
Then I ad the java in the Calculate tab (custom calculation script)
I've tried these, to name a few:
var d = new Date();
var sDate = util.printd("yyyy-mm-dd", d);
event.target.value = sDate;
var f = this.getfield("Today");
f.value = util.printd("yyyy-mm-dd", new Date());
Now, It works, but the date is not updated once the date has chenged on the computer. Iv'e been on this for a week now and I can't get it to work.
So, to narrow this down:
I want text followed by date in the printed copy of the pdf.
It should state: Date of print: yyyy-mm-dd
Any help here is higly apreciated.
