Text Field Disappearance

Avatar

Hello, was wondering if there is a way for the default word(s) in a text field to disappear once the field is clicked on instead of the user having to backspace the whole word(s) out, thanks

You can add this code to the enter event of the field:



this .rawValue = ""



But then this will delete everything that they have in there each time they enter the field.

This worked for me in Acrobat, probably doesn't apply in Designer...but maybe there's an equivalent!



if (event.target.value == event.target.defaultValue)



{

event.target.value = ""

}



so.. as Paul said above, but only reset the field if its value is equal to its default value
