I am creating a pdf form that contains text fields. The fields have Multi-line, scroll long text, and a fixed font size ('auto' font size is not a suitbale option). When the field's text exceeds the height of the field, the text becomes hidden and can only be viewed by using the up and down scrolls. This however, is not ideal for the forms purpose.
Is there a way to hover over a field (which has hidden text) and display the field's content in a pop-up?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Yes. Use the following code as the field's custom Validation script:
event.target.userName = event.value;
However, there is a limit to the size of the tooltip popup... So if your field contains a very long text it might cause issues.
I think you can fit up to 40 lines of text in it.
I have entered the exact script you provided above and it doesn't seem to have done anything.
Do I need to replace any of the text in the script with field names or other details for it to work?
No, but you do have to exit the field for the value to update.
If it's not working for you please share the file with us.
Just a tip if it doesn't work when you exit field, try to write something in the field or delete something.
Good point. You have to change the value of the field for it to "kick in".
Thankyou so much.
Changing the field content did the trick.
Am so happy that this has been resolved :).
