Hi,
I have a PDF fillable for with a Javascript that validates when a save button is pressed.  Works fine on Windows/PC but nothing happens when the PDF is open in the Adobe Reader app on iPad.  Should the script work on iPad?Is there some option in Acrobat I should be ticking off to get it to work?or do Javascripts not work on iPad (I had read somewhere that they should).  Any advice would be handy.

JS support on iOS devices is extremely limited, to non-existent.
The application with the most support for JS is Readdle PDF Expert, but even that one is quite limited in what it can do.

Most mobile devices are not computers and do not have all the capabilities of a computer. As note the iOS devices dor not have JavaScript and the android devices also do not have JavaScript. Some apps on both support some but not all JavaScript supported by Adobe Reader or Acrobat. If you are running a document level script there is a really good chance that your app does not support that capability.
