I can't for the life of me figure out how to get my custom icon on the addToolButton function. This is running from the following folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Javascripts

I am running Acrobat Pro DC. I can get the button to work if I don't have anything about a custom icon in the code. Everything functions fine. But with the code I have below the button doesn't show up and I get an error message:

TypeError: this.getIcon is not a function

3:Folder-Level:App:calloutSchem.js

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

this.getIcon("myIcon", "\\\\arwdfsp.com\\shares\\schematic_tools\\Resources\\Icons\\Leaf-icon.jpg", 0);

var oIcon = util.iconStreamFromIcon(this.getIcon("myIcon"));

app.addToolButton({

       cName: "NEW SCRIPT", // A name for your button

     oIcon: oIcon,

       cExec: "addCalloutLinks();", //Function to Call

       cLabel: "Callouts - Schem", //The Text on the Button

       cTooltext: "Make me some buttons please" //The Help Text

});

function addCalloutLinks() {

var linksCounter = 0;

var page = this.pageNum;

var numWords = this.getPageNumWords(page);

//var numWords = 1000;

loop1:

for (var i = 0; i < numWords; i++) {

var ckWord = this.getPageNthWord(page, i);

var stringInt = parseInt(ckWord);

loop2:

for (var counter = 0; counter < numWords; counter++) {

if (stringInt == counter) {

//console.println("Adding callout link: " + ckWord);

var r = convertWordQuadsToRect(this, page, i-1);

if ((i+1)<numWords) {

loop3:

for (var j=i+1; j<numWords; j++) {

if (/[\r\n]/.test(this.getPageNthWord(page, j, false))) {

var r2 = convertWordQuadsToRect(this, page, j);

if (r2[2]>r[2])

r[2] = r2[2];

if ((j+1)<numWords) {

var r3 = convertWordQuadsToRect(this, page, j+1);

if (r3[0]==r[0] && ((r[1]-r3[1])<20) && ((r[1]-r3[1])>0)) {

r[3]=r3[3];

loop4:

for (var k=j+1; k<numWords; k++) {

if (/[\r\n]/.test(this.getPageNthWord(page, k, false))) {

var r4 = convertWordQuadsToRect(this, page, k);

if (r4[2]>r[2])

r[2] = r4[2];

break loop4;

}

}

}

}

break loop3;

}

}

}

var f = this.addField(('000' + ckWord).substr(-3) + "_callout", "button", page, r);

f.setAction("MouseUp", "this.callout" + ('000' + ckWord).substr(-3) + "();");

f.userName = "Machine Location";

linksCounter++;

}

}

}

}

function convertWordQuadsToRect(doc, p, i) {

return convertQuadsToRect(doc, p, doc.getPageNthWordQuads(p, i));

}

function convertQuadsToRect(doc, p, q) {

var m = (new Matrix2D).fromRotated(doc,p);

var mInv = m.invert()

var r = mInv.transform(q)

r = r.toString()

r = r.split(",");

return [+r[4], +r[3], +r[2], +r[5]];

A folder-level script is executed when the application is first opened, before any files are opened, so your reference to "this" in the first line will not work. You can create a temporary file, use it to read the icon and then close it, though.

Oh ok. That makes sense. How would I just refer to the open document or make the temp document?
