Topic: Strange behaviour in Acro 6 with readonly and tabbing, 1 Attachments

I seem to be having some problems using readonly in my scripting in Acrobat 6.

In the attached document there is a checkbox followed by three red text fields and two blue text fields.

What I expect to happen (and it works fine in Acro 4 and 5) is that when I select the checkbox (unlocking the red fields) I then press tab and should move into the first red text field.

What happens in Acrobat 6 is that I tab over the red fields straight into the blue fields.

I've found that by selecting the checkbox first and then clicking on the page away from any fields and then tabbing through the field seems to work so it seems to me that there is an issue with the order in which events are occurring in relation to changing a field's readonly property from false to true.

If anyone can shed any light on this please let me know as it is driving me bananas.

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
