Topic: CF Example of CustomDocInfo

I am definitely a beginner although I have been using ActivePDF Toolkit for several years. Can anyone give me an example CF script that would allow me to insert a custom metatag into a PDF?

For example, I have the following CF code that will insert Title, Author, etc. into a PDF (this was taken right from APToolkit documentation:

<cfset ThisFile="c:\temp\pdftest.pdf">
<cfobject action="Create" type="com" class="APToolkit.Object" name="PDF">
<cfset r = PDF.OpenOutputFile("c:\temp\xyzzyx.pdf")>
<cfset PDF.SetInfo(Form.Title, Form.Subject, Form.Author, Form.Keywords)>
<cfset r = PDF.MergeFile(ThisFile,0,0)>
<cfset PDF.CloseOutputFile()>
<cffile action="copy" source="c:\temp\xyzzyx.pdf" destination="c:\temp\pdftest.pdf">
<cffile action="delete" file="c:\temp\xyzzyx.pdf">

Now, let's say that I want to add a custom field called "MyField" into the PDF.

I tried adding a line:

<cfset PDF.CustomDocInfo("MyField")=Form.MyField> but I keep getting the following CF error:

Illegal left hand side of assignment near line 6, column 7. Left hand side cannot be a function call.

Anyone have a clue?
