Hiding borders around text fields?

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

     My pdf form has many text fields with borders. One of the fields has a dropdown click calender date extension, and its border wont hide when printed. The others all work with the preprint* formcalc event as follows:

ui.textEdit.border.edge.presence = "hidden";

any suggestions on how to remove the date fields border?

Thanks,

Daniel

Sorry, I thought you wanted to change it dynamically. Yes the Appearance dropdown in the Field Tab assigns the borderStyle/fillStyle around the field itself--the Border Pallet assigns the borderStyle/fillStyle around the whole object (field AND caption).

Hi,

In thethere are 2 types of borders that can be applied--One for the field with caption (in the Border Tab) and one for just the field itself (in the Object/Appearence setting). The second one is the <ui> and I believe the <ui> is a different syntax for dropdowns.

Examining the XML it looks like the correct <ui> script "might" be:

     this.ui.choiceList.border.edge.presence = "hidden";

The other border would require a different script which  "might" be:.

     this.border.edge.presence = "hidden";

These might not be correct--it's my best guess after looking at the XML for a dropdown list.

Good luck!

Thanks for the help, but I'm sorry i think i phrased my question wrong. The list isn't a dropdown, its still just a text field (labeled "evaluation date"), but with mm/dd/year calender that opens up (DateTimeField) when the date field is clicked. sorry for the confusion 😕

Hi,

I don't have time to test--however, I think the answer is:

this.ui.dateTimeEdit.border.presence = "hidden";

goodluck!
