Unable to get field name/value of opened PDF with Folder Level script.

Level 2
Level 2


I am trying to get the value of a field from a menu item. I am using this script from the Folder Level so on load I can add the menu item.

However, I am unable to get the value of my field.

Here is my code:

function GetFieldValue()


  var firstName = First_Name.rawValue;



app.addMenuItem({cName:"-", cParent:"Help", cExec:" "});

app.addMenuItem({cName:"Get Field Value", cParent:"Help", cExec:"GetFieldValue();"});

This is the error I get:

But when I try the same script from a button click, it works perfectly!

form1.#subform[0].btnGetFields::click - (JavaScript, client)

  var firstName = First_Name.rawValue;


This is how my form looks like in the Hierarchy.


Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Is there a way to move the post over there or I need to copy and create a new thread?
