You mean in a PDF?

No. I don't think it's possible, though I know virtually nothing about the format, so I suppose it could be.

Combo boxes and links are HTML, not javascript or Java Script. Acrobat 7 Pro, and perhaps earlier, allows conversion of HTML to PDF but, there are many irregularities, most of which can be worked around with a lot of ingenuity. It is worth a shot. I know from experience that links, standard links, are no problem. Like:


<a href="http://www.somedomain.com/"><img src="some.jpg" border="0"></a>

Translates (using Pro's converter option) to PDF form quite well. If you are dedicated to creating PDF and really want to 'get under the hood', learn the post script language and compile .PDF directly from .ps files.
