Dear community, 

 

I'm on it since 90 minutes and can't find a solution, so please help me out.

 

I made a very simple form.

My problem is that when I send it over the field doesnt show anything.  

I would like to show it for example NAME, SURNAME, etc etc so that is is very easy to fill in.

 

This is my version on Acrobat pro:

This is what the people see:

Thank you for your help,

Bo

Use something like this as custom format script (you can remove color part if you don't want it):

if(!event.value){
 event.target.textColor = ["G",0.7];
 event.value = "Name";}
else
  event.target.textColor = color.black;

You can set those texts as the fields' default values (under the Options tab in the Properties dialog). Then clear the form and they will revert to those values. The field names are not displayed to the user, normally.
