I've seen some posts discussing removing the form field highlight individually.  What I need is to be able to apply this specific change to a number of XenApp servers so it has to apply to anyone that logs in without that user needing to do anything special.

Is there a config file we can add or a registry key/value we can create/add?

Thanks.

[Question moved to Enterprise Deployment (Acrobat and Reader). -Mod]

That check is "bRuntimeHighlight".

Is xdata a key or a data type needing a value?  It isn't clear to me why there are two separate values for xdata.  Also, is there a reference for colors for any of these values?  Should they just be hex colors or is it an on/off as in the case of bruntimehighlight?

Hi Greg,

  • xdata is a preference like the others.
  • There are two values because there is an xdata pref in two places (see the path in the doc you copied).
  • The values are a binary representation of hex. The best way to configure these is through the UI. Alternatively, set via the UI and then go to that location and copy the value for use in a configuration/deployment scenario (in other words: setting the UI is the best way to get a valid value you can use when modifying another registry).

I've been messing around with settings as i get time.  I find that what i need is a way to configure "Fields Highlight Color" with no fill or no color at all.  I don't see a way to do this in the gui.  Is there an alternate way to do this?

Go to Preferences>Forms>Highlight Color

If you want a "white" background then set all the RGB sliders to the right at a value of "255" for MacOS.  On Windows set the color picker to "white".

Steve, I've tried setting the color to white, however, this simply hides the text until you select the individual form fields.  I am trying to eliminate the background color entirely.  Similar to selecting 'no fill'.  I think i'm on the right track by just unchecking "Show border hover color for fields" as this seems to accomplish what' i'm trying to do, however, I am still looking for the registry settings that control this menu item as i need to apply that setting across an enterprise.
