Can I create PDF forms from LibreOffice that respond to conditions of form controls?

For example, if someone picks a certain country text in a listbox, then a certain group of text or form controls could conditionally appear depending on the listbox selection.

So, when I output the LibreOffice document to PDF format, the PDF is able to run this type of conditional form response.

As I recall. PDF format supports embedded JavaScript, as a macro language. Based on this post, I am correct.

I do not think this is possible to accomplish without JavaScript, which is a proprietary extension to the PDF format. The extension is specific to Adobe Acrobat. I refer you to my answer in the following post: Calculate total from fillable form
