Arrgh, now I can’t reproduce it any more. I don’t know what I looked at.

I already had "framed=on" as part of my setup.

I found a ConTeXt beta from February 2019 on my laptop, and there it works as 
it should.
i.e. frames are there, and radiobuttons are single-select.

I can understand your annoyance about Adobe – I recently switched Acrobat Pro 
with Qoppa PDF Studio Pro that contains most of AcroPro’s functions (including 
PDF/X and PDF/A check), since my Acrobat Pro 9 doesn’t work on OSX Mojave any 
more (it starts, but a lot of features won’t work), and I don’t want to pay 
monthly for their bloated crap.

PDF Studio lacks LiveCycle forms support (unfortunately those are used by some 
German authority bodies), and it can’t display CropBox, TrimBox etc outside of 
the cropping tool; I placed a feature request, maybe they’ll implement it; 
their email support was very quick, friendly and helpful.

Neither Acrobat (Pro 9) nor PDF Studio can save uncompressed PDFs. (I know old 
versions of AcroPro could.)

I "customized" the checkbox as it was possible within Acrobat; I found no 
options to use custom symbols (I know it worked in Acrobat 5-7).

  forms -> highlight color -> show border hover color

it badly interfering with these widgets ... there seems to be no way to

use a funny mix of appearances and border settings and ... because they 
make these buttons from dingbats (i think)


anyway, it's bad in the latest reader as well as in acrobat x which 
shows it's an old issue and as it's that old one can fear it has become 
a feature ... (of that no one cares)


so, the only solution seems to be to check the prefs

Re: [NTG-context] radiobuttons and other widgets

2019-08-05 Thread Henning Hraban Ramm
This is a feature request or wish:

I would be glad to have a module (e.g. "fakefields") as a drop-in replacement 
that overwrites the field commands (\setupfield, \definefield, \definesubfield, 
\field) with a version that doesn’t create form fields but just \inframeds that 
look the same.


\setupfield[setup name][options][keyval options] would map to 
\defineframed[setup name][keyval options]

\definefield[name][type][setup name][content values][default content] would map 
to \defineframed[nameField][keyval options] and inherit (how?) from "class 
name".

Don’t know how \definesubfield would work and how to setup the relationship to 
a special radiobutton type.

\field[name] would finally call \nameField{}

\setupfields doesn’t work anyway.

e.g.

\setupfield[MMshortString][reset,horizontal][width=45mm,option=printable,frame=off,bottomframe=on,height=2em,offset=0.5mm,frameoffset=1mm]

\definefield[Name][line][MMshortString][]

\field[Name]

would result in 

\inframed[width=45mm,frame=off,bottomframe=on,height=2em,offset=0.5mm,frameoffset=1mm]{}

while 

\setupfield[MMradio][frame=on, corner=round, height=0.75em, width=0.75em, 
align=bottom, offset=-0.5mm, frameoffset=0mm]
\definefield[GRB][radio][MMradio][RByes,RBno][RByes]
\definesubfield[RByes][][]
\definesubfield[RBno][][]

\field[RByes] I agree.
\field[RBno] I don’t agree.

would result in 

\inframed[frame=on, corner=round, height=0.75em, width=0.75em, align=bottom, 
offset=-0.5mm, frameoffset=0m]{} I agree.


I’d try it myself, but I know it’s over my head. I guess I loverlooked 
something important.
But probably it’s quite easy to do in Lua?
