Topic: Hide folder level JS in a plug-in
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 131180

I have a folder level JS that contains a number of JS functions written for the expressed purpose of momentarily creating, manipulating and removing a number of button type fields that reside on an interactive PDF form. As the main function that starts the ball rolling gets called from a MouseUp event tied to a button type field that permanently resides on the form, is it feasible to create a plug-in to accomplish the same task? The reason for this is to be able to remove (and in essence hide) that part of the folder level script that creates (adds) the button type field objects that reside momentarily on the form. The folder level JS would then contain only that part of the original scripts (JS functions) used to manipulate the button type field objects. In Acrobat jargon, I think one might refer to this as a custom annotation handler. All said, can this task be accomplished using a plug-in? Thank you ahead of time.
