Greetings All;

Using Adobe Acrobat v8.12 (for WIN)/Javascript how can I copy the semi-colon separated values of TEXTBOX1 into TEXTBOX2? (while adding a sequential ID in front of each copied values (minus the semi-colon)?

Copied values can be separated by a single blank space.

See illustraion below.

I have a working javascript for copying single or multiple selected values of a listbox into a textbox, but can't seem to get it modified correctly. HELLLLPPPPPP!

Thank you for you time and consideration.

Listbox1 to Text1 Version

Custom calculate Keyboard Script in "text1" field:


var textFieldNewValue = ""
 
var f = this.getField("listbox1");
var a = f.currentValueIndices;
 
if (typeof a == "number") // A single selection
{
     textFieldNewValue = f.getItemAt(a, false);
}
else // Multiple selections
{
    console.println("Selection:");
    for (var i = 0; i < a.length; i ++)
    {
        if (i!=0)
        {
            textFieldNewValue += " ";
        }
         textFieldNewValue += f.getItemAt(a[i], false);
    }
}
 
event.target.value = textFieldNewValue;

Check this :


var s = this.getField("TEXTBOX1").value;
s = s.split(/;\s*\r*\n*/)

this.getField("TEXTBOX2").value = ""
for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++) {
  var p = ("000" + i);
  p = p.substr(p.length-4,4);
  if(i==0) {
     this.getField("TEXTBOX2").value += p + " " + s[i]; 
  }
  else {
     this.getField("TEXTBOX2").value += " " + p + " " + s[i]; 
  }
}
