[reportlab-users] Retrieving Form Values from a ReportLab PDF

I determined that the Preview App in OSX was the problem. To resolve the matter I put a warning on the form to use Acrobat Reader NOT Preview App. All appears to work now as expected. I did however have a few more questions regarding forms. It looks like form validation is possible with PDF’s. For example I have a date field and I want the user to input a date in a very specific format. Or an email field that I want users to fill out appropriately. I am wondering if ReportLab form fields have been configured to support JS validations or regex or anything like this. I am guessing the answer is no, but thought I might ask here.
