validate.nullTest not working on parent objects


Level 1

I'm working on a document that has some tables. I was validating it were filled by the user with the .validate.nullTest="error"/"disabled" property for the parent table object, so the document was only displaying the red border on all the table instead of all the fields.

Suddently, last week it stopped to work and the red border is not printed anymore but the validation is still working. Anyone has an answer?

After investigating a bit, I found it's an Adobe Reader issue (or it's a feature?)

With Adobe Reader 8.1.3 and 9.1.0, the default red border (when .validate.nullTest = "error") for table objects was not displayed. With Adobe Reader 8.1.2 and 9.0.0 it's displayed.

Again, it's a feature or an issue? Where can I report it to Adobe Reader team?
