    This worked just fine in Acrobat Pro 9 but doesn't work in X.  What gives?

    DawnIs Level 1

      I hate Acrobat X.  I am getting stupid errors and am missing all sorts of metadata functionality.  I can't even browse (nevermind edit) metadata in Explorer, and see no solution for it anywhere on the net.

       

      I used this javascript in Acrobat 9 with NO PROBLEMS.  In Acrobat X  I get Syntax error missing ( before condition 8: on row 9 and can't proceed.  So what is different about Javascript in 9 that changed in X, and where do I find these changes?

       

       

      /* Filename to metadata (title, author) */

      var fname = this.documentFileName;

      var deliminator = " - "

      var lookfor = fname.lastIndexOf(deliminator);

       

      // Splice components

       

      if lookfor = -1

      {

      var string1 = fname.slice(lookfor + deliminator.length, fname.length).replace(/.pdf/gi, "")

      }

      else

      {

      var string1 = fname.slice(fname, lookfor)

      var string2 = fname.slice(lookfor + deliminator.length, fname.length).replace(/.pdf/gi, "")

      }

      // Insert values

      this.info.Title = string1

      this.info.Author = string2
