Hi,

is it possible to define the border of an object with script? My need would be for example to define for an object the bottom border only. I have found some very old examples that do not work on my version of LiveCycle :

 

$.ui.oneOfChild.border.getElement("edge",2).presence = "visible"

 

The example above does not work on my TextField, on initialize event.

Thank for any help. 😉

Hi there,

 

it seems like any property edge within the "ui.oneOfChild.border" has only 1 instance that can be modified. In any case that instance would be 0 instead of 2.

If you want to modify that specific instance, such as 2, you would need to access directly the border property of the object like the following.

$.border.getElement("edge", 2).presence = "visible";

the difference between both is the following:

accessing the border/edge property of an UI is the borders that represent the field, such as the highlighted zone which the software displays for you. This border is one entity of an edge index based (0)

 

accessing the border/edge directly from an object is the borders that wraps the caption along with the highlighted zone. This border is separated in 4 different edges index based (0-3)

 

I hope this will help.
