That is an Acrobat/Reader setting. On the Edit /Preferences menu, choose Forms and you can adjust the "Required Fields Highlight Color" in the HighLight Color  Section.

Thanks a whole bunch! This did work for me but on my machine only. Is this one of those things that everyone that opens the form with have to change the highlighted color if they don't like the red? Is there a way to make it automatically pick up a different color?

Thanks Lucy

I have a question,  I am using liveCycle designer/javascript and what I am trying to accomplish is when the PDF open can only the required fields background be colored and the optional fields not?

Hi,

First you would need to add JavaScript to the docReady event of the root node (normally "form1").

app.runtimeHighlight = false;

This will turn off the standard highlighting.

Then the simplest way would be to set the background of the mandatory fields manually in LC Designer.

Hope that helps,

Niall
