Topic: RE: Getting JavaScript from field with VB

I asked the same question to Carl from Adobe last week, and unfortunately
that information is not 'gettable' from VB, documented or undocumented.

The way to think about this stuff is, anything you can do in Acrobat with
Javascript can be automated via VB (well almost everything), you can't use
Acrobat/Javascript to get the code in a field so unfortunately you can't do
it via VB and the Forms API.

Have you read the FormsAPI from the SDK?
