Is there any way i can hide the rectangular field border (of a field) when opened in a browser? I just want to display the text without any field border when the form is opened in a browser.

thanks,
J

Yes, you need to use a 'style' attribute in your field tag , or use a Cascading style sheet to do this :

1. in the properties for the field, in the HTML section, in the Style field, enter :
border: 0px;

2. create a style section (or a stylesheet)
<style>
input {
border: 0px;
}
</style>

That sounds like you want to show it as computed field but not really a computed but editable field !! Then I would say it is not the way to go..If you make the field computed then the field borders are not displayed. But you are refering the field in javascript then use the form property "generate html for all fields" option. So your computed field gets a html container.

TOM, 1st method you mentioned is enough.. I don't know why you need to duplicate the same style again on the form !

It's OR of course.

Since you didn't mention what version, the Style field for HTML section could not be available.  Using a global style has the added advantage that you don't have to set the style for every field (could be a lot of work, depending on number of fields).

cheers,

Tom
