I have a form that I'd like to calculate the results in and I'm hoping someone could help me.

I want to calculate the percentage of 2 fields.

In the top right hand side of this form is Score: _____ Good   ____  Bad     _____  %

Reading your question again, maybe you don't need the library interface, in which case the calc would be on the lines of

float universe=5;
float good =4;
float bad = 1;

float percentgood = 100/(universe/good);
float percentbad = 100/(universe/bad);

System.out.println(percentgood);
System.out.println(percentbad);

Open in new window


(but excuse me if you were not looking for code, (as it is quite straightforward)).

Would I enter this info under Text Field Properties, Calculate, Custom calculation script:?

And....my fields are really named:
Good, Bad and Calc with Calc being the field where I want the formula calculated.

I am not familiar with the PDFBox library, and so I cannot speak about how it interfaces with Java.

Hi

you don't need JS

go  to your PDF. Format Good and Bad as numbers, Calc as Percentage (Right click Properties on each field)

The in Calc field go to Calculation and use the Simplified field notation and put
Good/Bad/100

Open in new window

.

This will give you percentage of the two fields. You need the "/100" as stupidly Adobe PDF makes its own x100 calculation for the Percentage value

I have a sample attached.
