Topic: Set Checkbox checked when opening pdf

I have a problem when i am programmatically creating checkboxes using visual basic (6.0 sp 5).

I can't seem to find a solution (looked on the web and the adobe sdk documentation and other) to set the checkbox checked when i open my pdf file.

I am creating the checkbox using the info provide of the adobe sdk (5.0), i can specify the name and such but can't say to be checked by default, it always needs user interaction to set it check (a mouse click on the checkbox).

I have tried to put text in the javascript console using vb and that worked but i doesn't automatically excutes the javascript statement, i always need to do CTRL + ENTER to execute it.

So i am looking for a solution were i can execute a javascript (or set a page open action) using visual basic so when i open the pdf the checkbox i created is default checked, without user interaction (ctrl + enter for javascript console, ...).

thnx to anyone who can help me
