I have the attached codes inside of the adobe pdf, and it work fine except when the button is clicked, the parent page will be redirected to url that the code is pointing to...
instead of that, I prefer to have just show a popup ("Done"), and clear all the data inside of the form. Have anyone known the coding javascript in Adobe Acrobat?

var typeofbond  = this.getField("typeofbond");
var bondamount  = this.getField("bondamount");
var exedate       = this.getField("exedate");
var term          = this.getField("term");
var priname       = this.getField("priname");
var phone       = this.getField("phone");
var pfax       = this.getField("pfax");
var pstreet       = this.getField("pstreet");
var pcity       = this.getField("pcity");
var pstate      = this.getField("pstate");
var pzip       = this.getField("pzip");
 
 
this.submitForm("https://xxx/eservices/testpdf.asp?typeofbond=" + typeofbond.value + "&bondamount=" + bondamount.value + "&priname=" + priname.value + "&pstreet=" + pstreet.value + "&pcity=" + pcity.value + "&pstate=" + pstate.value + "&pzip=" + pzip.value + "&phone=" + phone.value + "&pfax=" + pfax.value);

To reset the form, use this.resetForm(); to show an alert use, app.alert('Done');
