Form Fields

A Form Field is the element inside a PDF that stores data entered manually by the user or dynamically through JavaScript. In Revu eXtreme®, all fields are customizable, allowing changes to the appearance as well as extending their behavior through JavaScript field events. Most fields may have their contents validate and input formats enforced. In many ways, the form fields behave very much like HTML forms.

Fields are identified by their name. Two different types of form fields cannot have the same name. To follow PDF best practices, it's highly recommended that all names for auto-generated form fields of the same type are unique. This will ensure the form's functionality outside of Revu.

Note: Functions related to creating and editing forms are only available in Bluebeam Revu eXtreme.
