This can be achieved with a lot of form fields, and some scripting knowledge.
thank you for the answer.
could you please elaborate more? where can i find simialr stuff? what if i don't have skills in doing the scripts?
You can write 2 functions one to change the border/fill color of the form field upon entry and the other to restore the border/fill color upon exit. If you want to change the color of the row and columns, then you will have a lot more scripting to perform. You might be able to find samples. this techniques has been used since Acrobat version 4.
I've created a tool that does something very similar to what you describe, but the highlight only works on the page where the "hot spot" are located (unlike in your screenshot, where it is displayed over 2 pages). Have a look here (you can also download a sample file that shows how it works):
thank you try67 for the prompt answer.
the link you have provided is not working...it goes to something irrelevant.
could you help more if your time permits?
The link is to a page from my website that offers a script I created which will allow you to do what you described in your post.
The forum system tends to break up long URLs, so don't copy and paste it into your browser, just click on it and it should open.
If you're still having problems with it, you can send me a PM or email.
Thank you...finally, i could open it.
looks fine but doesn't satisfy what I’m looking for!
- i need it to be dynamic such that wherever the mouse is then i got the cross yellow highlight
- I need it to be valid in case of two pages
Is it possible to be developed to achieve these two features?
I could have this feature in the Excel! I got help from the Office Forum
1. That can work, if you create all the necessary "hotspots". I could possibly create a script that fills an entire page with hotspots, but then you have the issue of how large they should be...
2. That's probably possible...
If you're interested in discussing this further, contact me personally.
could i know how much does this cost?
