[pdftex] Hyperref multiline TextField height in PDFs

Hello All,

I am using Pdflatex, Hyperref, pdfscreen, and insDLJS for java in PDF's


 I have a multiline textfield, which is working.

value={My TextField},multiline=true,
validate={v1x=this.getField("Output.First");}]{ }{}

 The problem I have is I am unable to alter the height of the textfield,
 can someone help me with some ideas.

 This is what I tried:
 I tried to redefine the HeightOfText


 which then seems to break the TextField so that it is the length of the
 page, which is ok if it can be chopped or covered up or hidden somehow, so
 then I tried putting the textField in a minipage, hoping it would hide the
 extra length. I also tried a hbox and vbox, but I am unfamiliar with any of
 them and may have messed it up.

 Please any comments
David Vannucci
