Hello, I'm new to using JavaScript with Acrobat. And have number of questions:
1) Is there a straightforward object reference akin to Java API Specifications per object type? I have the standard JavaScript Object Specifications that comes with Acrobat Writer 5.0, but I find it less than crystal clear.
2) I'm trying to find a selected value of a combo box but are running into problems with:
a) which event can be used to indicate that an item has been selected and the user exited a combo box? Tried using On Blur...
b) After I find out the answer to a) I would like to populate a text field (that's easy textField.value = "??";), but am having problems with figuring out the selected value of the combo box. When I use

var comboField = this.getField("myCombo");

all I get is the default value of the combobox.

Very frustrating!!! Thanks,
