Topic: Calling JS from a plugin?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 38063

I had an interesting thought about how to do some interesting things from a plugin - but it would involve the ability to execute JavaScript from inside a plugin AND get the result!

Now I can see how to do this from the "outside" via IAC methods - and that should work fine (and in fact, does quite nicely on the Mac!), but I wonder if there isn't a better way.

Unfortunately, the only thing I found in the CoreAPI Ref was running an AVCommand which contains some JS in it - but that doesn't appears to have the ability to get the result back.

Any thoughts anyone? Or should I just stick with IAC? And if I do, can anyone comment on problems that I might encounter trying to do this on Windows (where COM is a bit funkier with calling from inside itself)
