Topic: Control the appearance of buttons with pdfmark

the code below uses a formxobject that is put into the button when the appearance state ist changed. The Reference says (page 88 of pdfspec) that: 'if the N,R or D values are not dictionaries, then they must be FormXObjects'. Well, thats ok. But what I want is to write the dictionary and that's the problem. What is the correct code to put into instead of the {eCalc} and {reCalc} formXObjects.

The main goal is to Highlight with one sensitive field a couple of other fields. (mouse over effects) There are lots of and so I need the pdfmark solution.

Thanks for your help.
