Events not triggering

Level 4
Level 4

What would cause an event not to trigger on a form? I have a couple text boxes that, in my full document, won't work, but when I remove all the other pages the events trigger fine. I have several text boxes that when clicked on, will cause circles to appear around the boxes.

I would guess that the events are firing, but that there is a conflict in the script, which is preventing the desired effect.

Have you opened the JavaScript Console (Control+J) when the form is opened in Acrobat? This may show up errors when you are interacting with the TextFields.

There is an example form here that explores when events fire:

Hope that helps,

I made them into groups and that seems to have done the trick.
