Jay - You nailed it on Oct 8th '08. I just tried it and it work....but ONLY after I went to the "Appearance" tab and set a font size. I discovered that mine was set to "auto" and that still allowed the text to shrink and not flow. Now it looks to work perfect. Thanks to all for the effort into posting this info! >Robert
This site is no longer active, and takes you to a slots site.
The script is working for me but have one major hickup. When the text gets to the end of the first field and flows to the next, it leaves off one letter. For example say the end of the first field is the word "understood" and the line breaks after "under", it flows to the next field but leaves out the letter "s", so it reads "tood" at the first of the next field.
Also, it would be great if it just carried the whole word to the next line instead of breaking it. So in the example above the whole word "understood" would begin within the next field.
That is correct. The "event.fieldFull" property becomes acitive on the keystroke that overflows the max characters. So if the max is 100, then the 101st character causes the overflow. So if you really want to use this technique the code needs to move the newly entered character into the next field.
However, and I think this was pointed out in earlier posts on this thread, this technique inherently flawed for many reasons. For example, what happens when the next field already contains text?
I have been able use the discussed script without any issue when typing the data into the first box.I do have a challenge when I attempt to copy the text into the first text box. The text simply stops in the first text box and i noticed that my curser is active in the second text box. There is not text in the second box.
Both of my text fields have a set font size, not auto, & scroll long text disabled.
Any suggestions? Thank you for your time.
Correct. Have you examined the relevant event properties to see their state?
I am unsure what you are asking of me.
Could you give me a tad more guidance please?
