Topic: Creating bookmark with VB +JSObject , dest fails
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 52601

I am using the bookmarkRoot.CreateChild method of
the JSObject from VB.  The code creates the bookmark
with the correct label and index, but the 2nd parameter, the navigation expression fails.

The Version 5.0, JavaScript Object specification, page 83 for the Bookmark object method CreateChild is 
Parameters: cName, [cExpr], [nIndex]
where cName is the bookmark label

CExpr is the expression to be evaluated when the user  clicks on the bookmark

nIndex is the zero-based index of the children of the bookmark

Example:  bookmarkRoot.createChild("NextPage","this.PageNum++");

Dim OurPathFileName as String 
Dim PDDoc As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim jso As Object 'JavaScript Object
Dim BookMarkRoot As Object
OurPathFileName = "c:\test.pdf"
Set PDDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
If PDDoc.Open(OurPathFileName) Then
 Set jso = pPDDoc.GetJSObject
 Set BookMarkRoot = jso.BookMarkRoot
 BookMarkRoot.CreateChild "Page7", "this.PageNum =7",0 
End if

Other jso methods such as jso.GetPageNumWords(nPage) work perfectly.

I understand the  object refers to the document object.  

How can I correct the 2nd parameter?
