I saw example in "JavaScript for Acrobat API Reference" to change text color depending on value, but I can't get it to work, I tried it in validation and in calculation but it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong? Here is code example:

First let me just ask is that just typing error in "JavaScript for Acrobat API Reference"?

Your suggestion work but if value is negative color should be red right?

 

EDIT:sometimes if negative color is black if positive red, other times whatever value it's always red.

it's all mixed up, I just don't get it.

Yes, it's a mistake in the documentation.

 

Where did you place the code, exactly? Under what event?

Keep in mind it will only update after you leave the field, as that's when the value is "applied".
