Adobe Dynamic Stamp - Need help with user input fields

I have copied several JavaScript codes but cannot get my stamp to work. I need 4 response boxes that the user will define after the stamp is selected and before the stamp is placed.  I am attaching the stamp and hoping someone can fix it for me and fill in the calculations needed.

The stamp name is at the top of the stamp, but should be deleted before the stamp is finalized.  Thanks for your help.

You are using the app.response() method, you can only get one piece of information. You are trying to get four different things from the user, this requires a dialog. Dialogs in Acrobat's JavaScript are quite a bit more complex than just calling a function. Take a look at the App.execDialog() method, it comes with sample code for a number of different dialogs. In your case, I assume that you are just requiring four different input fields that need to be copied to the fields in the stamp.

What you are asking for ("someone can fix it for me") is a bit too much. What I can do is teach you how to do this, but I won't do it for you.

Take a look at this tutorial: http://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/dynamic_stamp_secrets

Thom Parker (who wrote that tutorial) also wrote "the" book on dynamic stamps: http://www.pdfscripting.com/public/All-About-PDF-Stamps-in-Acrobat-and-Paperless-Workflows-The-Book.cfm

It sounds like my issue is more complicated than I originally thought it would be. I will order the book and see if I can get the information I need from that.
Thank you for the response.

Actually, everything you need is in the tutorial article, the book just provides a lot more information. The key for you now is to get a dialog constructed that allows for four different input fields. Take a look at the Acrobat JavaScript API documentation and see if you can get started. If you run into problems, let me know.

I appreciate the vote of confidence. I could not even find the console screen in order to run the script to find the stamp name.  The book should arrive on Friday, so I will try over the weekend.  Cross your fingers for me.

You can open the JavaScript console by using Ctrl-J (or Cmd-J on a Mac). Let me know if you have any other questions.
