View Full Version : Today's Date in Acrobat form
I have a date field in an Acrobat (v 5.0.1) form and I want it to be preloaded with the current date when the user opens the form. I have to work within Acrobat's code box and I used the following (provided in their documentation) but it didn't work:
The script name is Today
var f = this.getField("Today");
f.value = util.printd("mm/dd/yyyy", new Date());
The message I get is
TypeError: f has no properties . Can you help? Thanks.

If "f has no properties" then presumably it's not a Field object. How did you create it?
By "The script name is Today" ....did you mean the field's name?
And Today is the name of the script. Acrobat asks you to fill in a name and it calls that the name of the "script."

Would need to see the entire (generated) page.
That's not possible. Thanks anyway.

Thank you so much! It worked perfectly. I'm not sure why I came here instead of visiting Adobe's site -- maybe it's the personal touch we give and get! Thanks.
