Can I change the size of the message box?

Hello,

I have a dynamic form for users to fill out.  I have added several buttons to display message boxes containing specific instructions for filling out various parts of the form.  My problem is that some of the instructions are quite long and the messageBox is too small.

Is there a way to resize the messageBox?  If not, is there another way to create a pop-up window to display text on a dynamic PDF form?  It would be useful (although not necessary) to have better formatting options available too.

Thanks!

Yes there is another way - you can use the "ExecDialog" method from the Javascript API

The javascript API is here http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/js_api_reference.pdf

There is also a really useful util for creating dialogs at Windjack.com, which will give you a WYSIWYG tool for creating the dialogs here:  http://www.windjack.com/product/acrodialogs/

Thanks, Tim.

I have the dialog box working pretty well now. One problem that I still have though is that the static text box seems to be character limited. Do you know if that is the case? It only allows me to display about 500 characters on the screen no matter how big the dialog box is. Is there a way to expand it?

Thanks!
