Object = Text Field

Pattern Button, Display Tab

Display pattern with asterisk displays a space.  Need asterisk to actually display, NOT a Space.  Display Pattern = text{*999999999*}

Pulled all hair out 2 weeks... thanks

Goal:  user input in formfield will display *user input* upon exit in Bound Text Field formatted with barcode 39 font

Now user must key in *, @ 1st and last character.  Trying to make it so I don't have to rely on user to key in *

I can write javascript if necessary, just can't figure out what to write???
