Javascript code: , changing backround color of text field - on/off

Hello there,

Maybe you can help with some Javascript code::

I would like to add a javascript code to a check box: so that with activation of the box (first click) the color of an associated text field

changes from white to red, and with deactivation (second click) the color of the text field changes back again fra red to white.

The text color, black, remains constant. It is like making an on/off switch to the backround color of the text field.

If there is a javascript geni out there who can help this uneducated man with a couple of lines of javascript, I would be foreever thankful.

A reference to an on/off function in javascript would also be deeply  appreciated. Using acrobat pro DC, or v.9 windows

I am a beginner with javascript, and  have just started to learn this miraculous progammering language with serious effort..

Many thanks.

Michael H (Copenhagen DK)

This code changes the background color when checked but if you click on something else it goes transparent again even when checked. Is there a way to get it to stay the new color even when you click off of the field?

 

Thank you for any help in advance.

That should not be the case. Where did you place the code? Can you share the file in question?
