I have set up an app response that seems to work in Windows OS however, when ran on an Ipad, no results.
 
What I am trying to do is ask the user if they want to change a number within a predefined text box (SERVICE REPORT). If they want to put in a new number, I have an app response as follows:
 
{
//Increase Report Number by USER INPUT
var one = this.getField("REPORT NUMBER");
// the target field
var cResponse = app.response({ cQuestion: "Enter Number To Set Report To?", cTitle: "Set Report Number To"});
if (cResponse == null){
 // if Cancel is selected
 app.alert ("Cancel new report number?");
 cResponse = one.value;
 
}
one.value = cResponse

}
 
Why does this not work on an ipad??? Im Lost

iPads, android devices, and mobile devices and there associated apps do not implement all the PDF JavaScript objects, properties, and methods.

Vhttp://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Mobile/iosapi/classes/App.html - iOS app object only supports the alert method.

Acrobat Reader for iOS doesn't support this.
