I want to write a folder level script that has a customized toolbar button in Acrobat Pro. I am able to do it using app.addToolButton() by setting the 'oIcon' parameter. Now I want this button to change to another button ( with a different hex string) on clicking it. I checked the documentation but could not find it to add a different button at run time. Is this possible?
Thanks for the help in advance.

Thanks a lot!
Only way I can think of being able to do it is to use the removeToolButton command to remove the original one and then call addToolButton again with the new icon (and a new ID, most likely). However, as per the documentation, you have to call removeToolButton from the same context as the original call to addToolButton, so that means that you will have to first close all files, then call it, then add the new button. In short, I don't think it's worth the effort just to get a display a new icon...
