Highlight fields

Not applicable
Is it possible when a user opens the form all fields to be highlight without to have to click the highlight button?

I am using LCD 8.2



Thanks

Where do I put that information? I use LiveCycle Designer out of Acobat Professional.  Can I still use that line of code?  If so where do I put it?

This is how i will solve it..on each field: whether a text field, combo box etc you can view their events by clicking them and selecting from the drop down list; in this drop down list u will see a number of events: click, enter, exit, prePrint, preSave etc and in that list u will find form:ready. Select it and paste the code there make sure Javascript is selected as the Language.

I am still having issues.  I don't see the drop down that you are refering to.   Is there anyway you could do a screen shot and attach it?   I am thinking it may be limitations to the LiveCycle I have - since I am using what is part of Adobe Professional.

no it wouldnt be limitiatiations cuz i am also using the one from professional. Tell me if you are seeing the area where u are able to enter javascript code for the form. If you are seeing it that area, its in that section below the task bar..

Hi !

Okay so I tried it with app.runtimeHighlight = false;  ( I don't want the highlights to show up) but when I open the doc in reader (I have extened the features to readed) the highlight button in the top right still over rides the code I put in.  All I did was choose form:ready and enter the code.  Do I need an end statement?  I tried saving it as a dynamic PDF vs Static?  Remember I am really new so I must be missing something.

I sure can! I have added both the reader version and the regular version.

Thanks for the help!

You have your code on LayoutReady not Doc Ready. Layout Ready is too early.

So do I put it on the form level (the same place I have it now) but choose docReady from the drop down?   I got the last thing I did from this forum page

How to turn "On" the Highlight fields automatically?.

I will try this again

Thanks!
