Hi,

Is it possible to change the highlight color of the form through the form itself, not through the preference | form setting of the Adobe Reader.



Also, how to highlight only those fields that is mandatory and is not filled in?



Thanks.

Yes you can control the highlight color. It is an acroForm setting and not in XFA but you can access it through the XFA side. the command you want is:



app.runtimeHighlightColor = "RGB value"



If the field is mark as required then it will be highlighted in Red by default.

Hi,

Thank you Paul. Is there a document or web site that have reference to the acroForm commands, properties or setting?

Hi,

I tried setting app.runtimeHighlightColor=[RGB,0.22,0.22,0.22] , it changes the color of the field value area. How can I change color of the red box for those field that is set to required. Thanks.

There is a setting in the properties but it is not exposed in the Javascript (that I can see anyways). I got those commands in the Acrobat JavaScript reference.
