Date validation in interactive adobe forms
By Phani Diwakar
In adobe form, for date field by
default we get F4 help for selecting the date and also we can enter the date
manually too. When we are doing interactive adobe forms, usually we get problem
with date fields such as we can enter any garbage value manually in date field
or we can enter any date format. We cannot restrict not to enter the date
manually. So we need to validate the date field with particularly in one
specific format. This document gives an idea about this.
When you execute the form, initially
date will be appeared as shown below.
We can define our own format other
than standard SAP provides. Suppose If you want to display the date in
YYYY.MM.DD format, then you have to follow the below procedure.
whether the date format YYYY.MM.DD is already exists. For that, check the
Display Pattern in Field tab of Object palettes as shown. This displays what are
the available formats.
want to display the date format as YYYY.MM.DD which is not already exists as
shown above. In this case we need to define this date format.
go to Edit Pattern in Field table of Object palette and write the date format
YYYY.MM.DD as shown below.
you check point A, you cannot find this date format. Select the YYYY.MM.DD
format as shown.
Activate and execute the form.
Still you can enter the date in
different formats or else we can give some garbage in date field as shown.
