Hi!

 

 

sorry im super super new to javascript btu trying to fumble my way through.

 

I managed to run a javascript with some overlays and managed to get them to change colour but i still need to be able to see the text underneath even when they are grey.

 

 

Check box is Check Box 1

and field is AOG

 

So what i want to be able to do is

When a check box is unticked the field is normal and text can be entered into it.

When the check box is checked, the field then becomes shaded grey but you can still see the text.

 

thankyou and i hope this is an easy fix as i have been searching on here for answers and havent quite managed how to get there yet

 

thankyou in advance!

Hi @Rachel22145624p5f5 

 

Hope you are doing well.

As described, you want to customize the workflow of the check box fields, using the JavaScript.

 

Please checkout the help page https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/javascript_console/ for information about using the JavaScript.

 

Hope it will help

 

Regards

Harsh

As Mouse UP event of checkbox add this script:

if(event.target.value != "Off"){
this.getField("AOG").readonly = true;
this.getField("AOG").fillColor = ["G",.8];}
else{
this.getField("AOG").readonly = false;
this.getField("AOG").fillColor = ["T"];}
