Topic: Selecting Form Field using JS Object

Does anyone know if it is possible to select and highlight a Form Field programatically while using the Form Tool in design mode. I have researched this and tried to implement the following code with no success. The code successfully highlights the proper field, but not in design mode.

Dim objJS As Object
Dim Field As Object

Set objJS = objAVDoc.GetPDDoc.GetJSObject
Set Field = objJS.getField(FieldName)
Set objJS = Nothing

I am working an a utility to set up field mapping from a VB App to a pdf Form and would like to highlight the appropriate form field in the pdf document (that is tiled next to the VB App) when the user select the corresponding field in the VB App.

Thanks in advance for any insights
