I'm going about it the wrong way? I can't seem to get anything at all to fire as the result
of a text field changing.

code to create 2 fields (just in case that mattered), which resulted in http://aapro.net/PDF/SimpleForm.pdf.

and duplicated everything to handle both fields, resulting in http://aapro.net/PDF/FieldTriggers.java
. This, when run gives http://aapro.net/PDF/FieldTriggers.pdf, which, in PDFDebugger looks
something like this:
