Java Script in Acrobat

I am trying to make a popup Menu under a button in Acrobat X. For this I added a Javascript in the Button menu.

I get the impression that there is a limit to the amount of lines Acrobat can manage because I get error messages that are not logical and when I delete a random line everything is ok.

Is there anybody with experience in this matter?

    There is a limit to the amount of text you can enter to the internal script

    editor, but you would see a very clear indication when you reach that

    limit. It sounds like you have some other problem... What kind of error

    messages are you getting?

    It works fine for me... Maybe you're not selecting the entire code when

    you're running it?

    Sorry, don't know what to tell you. The code you posted runs fine in

    Acrobat 8 and X.

    Have you updated to the very last version? Are you running it from the

    console each time, or did you embed the script in the PDF?

    It could be, although I've never heard of this bug before... You can report

    it to Adobe here:
