adobe's weak implementation of js can handle that...

does this not work?

or did you want something else?

<html>
<script language="javascript">
function abc()
{
var a,b
b=isFinite(t1.value)
if(b==true)
{
a=parseInt(t1.value)

}
else
{
a=0
}
t1.value(a*2)
}
</script>

<body>
<input type="text" name="t1">
<input type="button" name="b1" value="Click" onClick=abc()>
</body>

Just change the statement of t1.value(a*2) to
t1.value=a*2

hjainu: Welcome to EE.
It is customary to post comments if there are other comments that may be accepted as an answer. Also in this question, you do not post a specific Acrobat solution so perhaps your answer is not THE answer to this question

Set the form field in Acrobat -- there's an option for calculation that will probably do what you want.

hjainu's answer is fine for javascript -- but Acrobat is totally different.

It's time to clean up this topic area and that means taking care of this question. Your options at this point are:

1. Award points to the Expert who provided an answer, or who helped you most. Do this by clicking on the "Accept Comment as Answer" button that lies above and to the right of the appropriate expert's name.

2. PAQ the question because the information might be useful to others, but was not useful to you. To use this option, you must state why the question is no longer useful to you, and the experts need to let me know if they feel that you're being unfair.

3. Delete the question because it is of no value to you or to anyone else.  To use this option, you must state why the question is no longer useful to you, and the experts need to let me know if they feel that you're being unfair.

If you elect for option 2 or 3, all you need to do is post right here as a comment, and I will take care of the rest.  We also request that you review any other open questions you might have and deal with them as necessary.

PLEASE DO NOT AWARD THE POINTS TO ME.

____________________________________________

Hi Experts:

In the event that the Asker does not respond, I would very much appreciate your opinions as to which Expert ought to receive points (if any) as a result of this question.  Likewise, you can also suggest that I PAQ or delete the question.

Experts, please do not add further "answer" information to this question.  I will be back in about one week to finalize this question.

Thank you everyone.

dspavlik,

The beauty of Experts-Exchange is that members and experts can work together to find solutions to problems.

The site is set up in such a way to encourage a dialogue between the parties.

Many of the experts here are professionals. To them, time is money. They give you some of their precious time in order to help you out.

And we're not asking much in return. Just a bit of feedback. If a question helps you solve your problem, grade it. If it doesn't, *let us know*.

I will ask you to do one small thing for me now. Read the Member Agreement. Here's the link:

Please post a comment here so I know that you've read and understood this agreement, and that you understand that we're asking you to give some feedback on your progress, and that you're willing to do this in the future.

They'll ignore it -- I'd bet money on it. They've got 18 open questions, have never answered anything, and probably don't have the full version of Acrobat to fix it in the only way that will work... ;-)
