Run action on value changed

2 posts in this topic



I've been toying with the Form Actions for a while, running Javascripts to edit the values in other form fields.
One feature I am missing is being able to run an action if the value of an element has changed. 


I'm primarily using this to automate PDF's containing D&D Character sheets and such, and I would like to do some calculations on numbers filled in to output that on another field. I can do that perfectly fine, but I'm missing the "Value Changed" trigger for initiating that action.

Screenshot, with an extra selection added in (crudely, via Paint, but it explains the point I believe)

Would it be possible to add this feature?

Hi Tim,


Thanks for your feedback. Actually, when you set the calculation for fields, when the value of one field changes, our program will re-calculate automatically, so I am afraid you do not need to have the option of "On Value Changed".  You can set the calculation for your fields first, and please refer to the instructions here: http://forum.pdf.wondershare.com/index.php?/topic/1129-create-form-fields-with-arithmetic-calculation/


Then you can change one of the field, the calculation result will change automatically. Please have a try to check whether it meets your needs. In case it fails to meet your needs, then please confirm more details about your need of "On Value Changed" to us, we will have further check.
