Setting Form Field formatting to None

Post by prime clinical systems » Wed Nov 24, 2021 6:22 pm

Hi, I have several fields in PDF that have Date type formatting, and I want to set to None in code, as shown in the combo. I see these flags, but nothing that says None.

TFF_Date = 2048,
TFF_MultiLine = 4096,
TFF_Password = 8192,
TFF_FileSelect = 1048576,
TFF_DoNotSpellCheck = 4194304,
TFF_DoNotScroll = 8388608,
TFF_Comb = 16777216,
TFF_RichText = 33554432,
TFF_RTL = 268435456,

Date (or any other type of formatting) is not described by form field flags.
Instead, Format/Keystroke actions are used. You will have to remove these actions. Something like this

Code: Select all

pField->put_Actions(Trigger_Format, nullptr);
pField->put_Actions(Trigger_Keystroke, nullptr);
pField->put_Actions(Trigger_Validate, nullptr);
