Topic: NeedAppearance not working

hello all,
i am making a program that takes a pdf source and copies its pages X times in a new pdf. When I need to change the name of a field, I just set a new value to the "T" object. Same thing if i want to change the value of a field, all I need to do is change the value of the "V" object.
I know, in order to see the new values of the fields, i need to set a bool in the Acroform dictionnary "NeedAppearances" to true.
Everything works fine: the name of the fields are different, the values are different. BUT, with fields that executes a specefic JavaScript, i can not see the new value of the field. If i click on the field I can see it.
It' s like NeedAppearances doesnt work for that.
Has anyone had that problem? What should I do?

Thank you

Bob.
