Script changes caption to italic font

Avatar

Level 9

I am using the following script to add what looks like help text in gray italics in the value fields. The problem I am having is that the date objects captions are also changing to italics but only after I save the file and reopen it ( I am running Acrobet X). How can I prevent/fix this?

form1.#subform[0].Subform5.CurrentMeetingDate::initialize - (JavaScript, client)
this.execEvent("exit");
this.format.picture.value = "null{'" + this.assist.toolTip.value + "'}";

form1.#subform[0].Subform5.CurrentMeetingDate::enter - (JavaScript, client)
this.fontColor = "0,0,0";
this.font.posture = "normal";

form1.#subform[0].Subform5.CurrentMeetingDate::exit - (JavaScript, client)
if (this.isNull)
{
this.fontColor = "153,153,153";
this.caption.font.fill.color.value = "0,0,0";
this.font.posture = "italic";
}


form1.#subform[0].Subform5.CurrentMeetingDate::prePrint - (JavaScript, client)
this.format.picture.value = "";

form1.#subform[0].Subform5.CurrentMeetingDate::postPrint - (JavaScript, client)
this.format.picture.value = "null{'" + this.assist.toolTip.value + "'}";

Thanks

Taking another look at this problem. Shouldn't the correct answer above read,

this.caption.font.posture = "normal";

not have the .value

Hi,

The initialize script is firing the exit event.

In the same way as you specifically change the colour of the caption font, you could change the posture of the caption as well.

this.caption.font.posture.value = "normal";

Hope that helps,
