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. Multiple form fields of the same type can have the same name. When the fields are named identically, the two fields are synchronized such that changes made to one cascade to the other. Two different types of form fields cannot have the same name.

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