How to access the data after this.importTextData("/c/desktop/myData.txt")

This is probably a trivial question, but I have no idea how to access the data

after executing this.importTextData.


The contents of myData.txt are

bookmark0      bookmark1    bookmark2
Introduction   Chapter 1    Chapter 2


How do I retrieve the value of "bookmark0" for example?


Thank you in advance.

Look at the example in the Acrobat Javascript Reference for this method.

I was expecting that the importTextData() function would import data into a string array or the like. If I have to create fields for every pieces of text I'm trying to import in advance, this is not a viable solution. I'll look for other ways to import text. Thanks.

No, it imports it directly into the fields. If you want to read the text as is use readFileIntoStream, and then convert it from a Stream to a string, an split it by line and further by item (depending on the delimiter used in your file).
