welcome to the world of Acrobat JavaScript.

First, I strongly suggest that you work through the Acrobat Forms
JavaScript Object Object Specification, also known as Acrobat JavaScript
help, AcroJS.pdf. There you will see the possibilities you have.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Acrobat JavaScript implementation is
NOT THE SAME as the Netscape implementation.

Hint: for your application, you would have a Combo Box field and evaluate
its value. the popUpMenu() method is undocumented, and therefore not
guaranteed to work properly (which is indeed true).

Hope, this can help.
