Removing fill color of checkbox field upon deselection.

Avatar

Level 4

When a user selects a checkbox, the field turns yellow. Unfortunately, when the user deselects the checkbox, the color remains.  I know I need an if/else statement to remove the color upon deselection, but cannot get quite the right script. The checkbox named LEPID is my guinea pig and it still has the nonfuctioning script I have been working with. Can anyone tell me how to remove the fill color when the checkbox is deselected?  Thanks!

Hi again,

You had some mistakes in script:

1) in condition you shoud use == instead =

2) if (condition) but not if{condition}

this is working script:

if (this.rawValue == "1") {

this.fillColor

="244,254,114";

}

else {

this.fillColor

="255,25,128";

}

Also see attach.

Wonderful--THANKS! I've learned quite a bit of useful stuff from you in the last couple of days .  You are super helpful.

Do you know of a good and easy to understand source that explains the basics of java syntax, such as when to use {} as opposed to ()--basics that I seem to be missing?

Also, I've attached some docs related Adobe scripting and FormCalc language.

Thanks Paul.  I checked out the site--very fruitful. It cleared up a couple basic things for me such as when to use () or {}.  The pdf's will be a helpful resource also, I am sure.

Take care,
