I'm trying to trigger the "fieldFull" event without keystrokes. Is there any way to do this?
I have 3 pages in a document, with a textbox on each page. Overflow from one textbox will go into the one on the subsequent page. The problem is if the textbox on page 2 is already full. If I type on page 1, I can make the overflow go into the textbox on page two, but since this textbox is already full, I'd like that overflow to go to page 3. I can set the value of the textbox on page 2 to the overflow from page 1 and the current value of the page 2 textbox, but that doesn't trigger the fieldFull event since I didn't physically type into that box. A little "plus" sign shows up in the lower right corner to indicate there is additional info in the box, but how can I extract that extra info and put it on page 3? I don't want to use character limits since I'm not using a monospaced font.
Thanks for the help!
As a workaround, I had to make the text boxes scrolling with a monospaced font (so the number of rows and columns are constant, unfortunately). Then, based on things like special characters, spaces, and new lines (which is apparently just "\r" in Acrobat) I calculate the number of rows of text, and if it exceeds the set number, I create a new page or paste it onto an existing one and set the focus there. Those actions are activated with both onBlur and onFocus events.
