Wrap text to next field without words getting cut off

Avatar

Level 4

Hi,  I have 3 textfields that will tab to the next field when full

//will tab to TextField13 once field is at its limit
xfa.host.setFocus(TextField13);

 

The problem is when text is at the end of the field and the word is too long, the word will get cut off.  Is there a way to prevent this from happening - have the complete word go to the next field?  Also, is there a way to delete text using the backspace button after the text goes to the next line. Meaning if my text tabs to the next field, I want to backspace to the previous field?

Thanks for your response. When I type in Field1 it will overflow to the next field, however, the word that overflows gets deleted when I keep typing.  I typed "If I keep typing in this field".  "this" overflows and when I continue to type "field", "this" gets deleted and I'm left with "field".  See 2 screenshots below.
