In a previous post, I managed to use a subform to replace AcroFrom Dialog Box:
Now, I am facing the same issue I reported earlier, that is, in the new case, the page is crowded, and child elements of the overlapping subform is confused with the large text fields behind the subform.
I am checking if there is a method to prevent clicking outside the subform (dialog box subform) if it is visible.
The only solution that I am thinking of is to use a much larger protected dummy button to be placed just behind the subform box that will cover all the other elements which are overlapping with the subform box.
Is there any other solution to prevent the focus-out (or the Exit) Event of the subform dialog box when it is visible?
When making your subform visible, you could execute a function to set all other fields to be read only until the user closes the subform "dialog"?
Yes, this is one of the correct methods, however, it is hard to implement, since I need to keep a manual list of all overlapping elements, and save the "access" property status before showing the popup, and restore the saved value after hiding the popup. And, everytime I move the popup, I have to modify the list of overlapping elements, and, I have to create a list for each template.
Do you have an idea of how to get a list of overlapping elements of a given subform in a parent subform? If there is any easy way, then such implementation might be possible.
