Hi - am new to this forum - seems the appropriate place to ask my question

I generated an interactive PDF using Phantom. I have a short script to enter the current date when clicking in a field. The triggers can be any of Up, Down, etc but I have used MouseUp.

This works just fine in a Foxit reader. BUT, when opening the form in Adobe Acrobat XI, the action only triggers on the NEXT click after my initial click in the date field, no matter whether this next click is in another field or in open space.

My code is :
var f = this.getField("RecvdByDate");
f.value = util.printd("dd mmm yyyy", new Date());

Thanks in anticipation

It is working use Mouse Down. My testing was probably not careful enough. MouseUp does NOT work as expected but the others do. I wanted MouseUp but MouseDown will do equally well.

I usually use the Mouse Down action as this is the Windows default action for mouse selection. One cancels the action by moving the mouse out of the field.
