List box multiselect resulting in pulsating cursor


Not applicable
I followed the coding suggestion found in the following Topic link to create a multiselect Listbox that saves all its selections to the submitted XML output file.

In the Listbox initialize event, I use this code: = "multiSelect";

this.rawValue = "-1";

In the invisible Textbox preSubmit event, I use this code:

this.rawValue = Listbox1.rawValue;

However, in Designer's PDF Preview, as well while testing in Acrobat 7, the moment I have selected two or more items in the Listbox with the Ctrl key AND THEN click into any other field in the form, the cursor rapidly pulsates between either the text cursor and the hourglass, or the hand cursor and the hourglass.

I can continue to fill out the form just fine and submit by email, and all the selected data is preserved in the XML output -- however, the pulsing cursor will totally unnerve the users.

Does anyone have any idea why it does this? This behavior doesn't happen in the example that I borrowed it from.
