Bruce, My apologies for the delayed response. I have tried it on two computers with the same result. Unless there is another script that may work without turning on/off the Highlight Existing Fields feature, it would appear that I will not be able to achieve the desired result for my form. ~AB

Re: Change Textfield (with default text) color when user... ab35711410 - Adobe LiveCycle
Yes sorry, it was meant to be a lower case "F." I tried the script in the docReady event as suggested and it did not turn off the Highlight Existing Fields option. Just to make sure none of my form parameters/settings were preventing the script from working correctly, I entered the script on your provided test from without success. I did have a glimmer of hope when I saved it as a static form and then back to a dynamic form. For some reason that turned off the highlighting during that odd moment...

Re: Change Textfield (with default text) color when user... ab35711410 - Adobe LiveCycle
Bruce, The script works when I turn off the highlight fields option on my form. Unfortunately, turning it off also turns it off for all of my forms in Adobe. Is there any way to customize this setting for the form itself to where it does not affect my overarching Adobe settings? I tried the following script in the Form Ready event without success. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. app.runtimeHighLight = False ~AB

Re: Change Textfield (with default text) color when user... ab35711410 - Adobe LiveCycle
Bruce, The script works perfectly as long as I click to highlight the fields first. For some reason, my form does not have the option to highlight the fields at the top of the form. Is there any way to enter a script in the Initialize event to automatically highlight the fields? I have searched and tried a few different scripts in various events to achieve this, but without success. I would upload my form, but I am building it on my company's isolated network. I greatly appreciate all of your he...

Bruce, please see my reply as an answer to my original question. For some reason the comment section does not allow for proper formatting and runs everything together. Thank you!

Hello, I am developing a form and would like to highlight a textfield to remind the user to enter required information.

I would like the textfield to highlight in yellow upon opening the form and then turn off the highlighting or turn the content background to white when the user modifies the default text. I have tried ev...

Re: Disappearing text from text box when information flows to next page ab35711410 - Adobe LiveCycle
‌In hindsight, I may not have been clear enough in my original posting. I'm using Livecycle Designer ES4. The text boxes on the master page are set using the action builder so that when "A" is selected from the drop down on page 1, the value of both text boxes on the master page are "A" also. When the flowed text fields on page 1 expand to accommodate additional lines causing page 1 to flow to page 2, the text boxes get reset to default. For example, if I have the default text set to "Z", then a...

CommunitiI have a drop down menu on page 1 of my form that is bound/feeds two text boxes on my master page. On text box is at the top of the page and the other is at the bottom. They all function as intended, but when the text fields on page 1 expand and the information flows to the next page, the text disappears from the boxes and has to be selected from the drop down again.
