Is there some way to add JavaScript to run when a user attaches a file?

    There is not event that fires, but you could control the JavaScript to add the attachment using the importDataObject (see the Acrobat JS API Reference document for details), if you don't specify the cDIPath parameter it will display a dialog.


    You could then run additional JavaScript after you have made the above call, the function returns true if it was able to import the file and therefore you could use this to control if you run you code or not.


    The Acrobat JS API reference document can be downloaded as part of the SDK from here -


    or the online version is here - oJSPreface.87.1.html


    To use the 'doc' object from acrobat in LiveCycle Designer change the 'doc' part to ''


    Hope this helps
