Fix app.getPath for JavaScript folders

Jan 21, 2012 1:36 PM

With the Acrobat/Reader version10.1.1 patch the "app.getPath("user","javascripts');" and "app.getPath("app", "javascripts");" no longer work.


Some user applications may use this feature. so it would be nice to have it work properly for the non-privileged folder.


It might also be helpful to have new method for the privileged folders.

    It's "javascript" not "javascripts", and I've discussed this elsewhere on the forums - the functions do still work, but if the new user JS folder tree hasn't been created then the "user" paths will throw an exception, as per the documentation:


    "The method throws a GeneralError exception if the path does not exist."

    The feature request (or bug fix...) should be that the application will

    once again create these folders during the installation. The same applies

    to the user sequences folder, which is now only created when the user

    creates their first Action.
