Creation of a custom dynamic stamp (With date) in Acrobat 9 (Windows 7)
I am trying to create a custom dynamic stamp in Acrobat 9, windows 7.
What I did so far is the following;
1-Created my custom form in PDF (A name, title and signature) which works fine when I add it in my stamps.
2-Opened dynamic.pdf, copied the dynamic field of the first form (Revised) and copied it in my custom form (the signature).
3-I see the date and time on my new customer stamp (The signature). When I right click on the dynamic form field from my custom stamp (The signature) and go to to calculate tab, in the last radio button, I have the following formula :
event.value = (new Date()).toString();
AFDate_FormatEx("h:MM tt, mmm dd, yyyy");
I save my new custom stamp (Signature).
I close it. Then I open acrobat and add the new "Dynamic" custom stamp I created (The signature)from manage stamps.
I then try to add my stamp to the PDF document I opened. I see the stamp with the name, title and signature, plus the date is there, but it's the date and time from when I copied it in my custom stamp in the first place. The time never changes.
If I go back in the stamp, go to forms and add or edit fields, the formula is still there... but the time won't change.
I have checked similar posts (Only one actually) and the link in the post is broken.
