This works for single line fields. How can I select all the text in a multiline field?

Yeah, but that's where you're splittin' hairs...because it's changing the form visually, and to me, that would be/should be an event.

Ok so now they figured they'd keep the required fields, but they want the highlighting turned off...and only come back on when the form is submitted. But how do I restrict the user from turning it back on themselves? Can I remove the Highlight Fields button? I tried setting the app.runtimeHighlight = false on the Layout:ready event so everytime the user clicked the button the highlighting would go back to false, but I guess clicking the Highlight Fields button doesn't trigger an event?

S. Bishop,I figured out why I couldn't get the code>this.ui.oneOfChild.border.fill.color.value = "200,200,200";to work before and it's because I have my field's Appearance set to None so I don't have any borders around the entry area. If I choose Custom and set the borders to none, then I can use your script to change the fillable area. I might need this to work around my problem. Thank you!Scott,Actually, I didn't think of that. I will propose this as an option and see what they think. Although...

Thank you S. Bishop for all your help, but I cannot get your method to work, nor am I exactly sure what I'm supposed to see...Now my employer wants me to not make these fields required anymore because "it isn't appealing to the eye and thus doesn't meet the professional image we want to convey to our agents". Meaning, the hours and hours I spent on coding to make the fields required and not required based on values, etc. is all for none because of this new way Adobe displays required fields.

My hopes as well, Scott.Thanks for your reply Tom. That certainly does get rid of the ugly red borders. Unfortunately, I still need the fill shading (light blue, or whichever system color they have set) of the fields.

Yes, the red borders show when the form is INITIALLY viewed. I've had many people come and complain to me that they do not like the red borders. I told them that I wrote some code to remove the red border once the field was filled out, but that wasn't good enough. We do not want the red borders to show when the form is initially loaded.Here's a snapshot image showing a required field when it's initially loaded:

I am also needing to change the ugly red borders. My employers are really disappointed at the way Reader 9 displays mandatory/required fields. They simply do not like the look and feel. In LiveCycle 8.2, the program uses two red borders, one around the entire field (caption & entry) and one around the entry area.Now we need certain fields on the form to be required, but we don't want these ugly borders. How can I change them? Or maybe Adobe needs to change the way they present a required field? ...

THANKS AJAY. IT'S A VERY COMPLICATED FORM WITH A TON OF SCRIPTING. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING. IT IS A BUG WITHIN ADOBE'S PROGRAM. UNTIL THEY FIX THEIR BUG, I CAN'T HAVE MY TAB ORDER WORKING CORRECTLY.

I stand corrected, there is an easy way to make your field protected. In the Object palette, click on the value tab and select protected. Then if you view your XML source code, you will see the changes like Jono mentioned:>Jono, trust me, no matter what method I try, I cannot get the correct tab order. It really is a bug in LiveCycle.I have used the setFocus command on many of my forms, this one included, in many areas, but this does not help with the tab order sequence.

Jono,Thank you for your quick responses. I cannot have the Tab Order set to automatic since I need a custom tab order. Although I did try your method, and that did not work very well for me either. I believe it may have something to do with all the scripting and how complicated my form is. Not to mention it's over 1.5 MB. (Oh yeah, and the bugs I found too! lol)There used to be a way in 8.0 to remove a field from the tab order sequence by doing a Shift + Ctrl + Alt + Click or Shift + Ctrl + Clic...

I work for an insurance company and you can imagine how many forms we deal with on a daily basis. I've been making all of our forms into fillable forms using LiveCycle. Most of the dynamic forms I create are pretty advanced with scripting. One in particular I'm having trouble with has 80-112 fields on a page and is 4 pages long. Creating this form has been a battle for a number of reasons, writing Adobe's version of JavaScript, the program crashing, and setting the tab order, being some. I first...
