I have established communication from my vb.net application to acrobat using the following:

 

Dim AcroApp As Acrobat.CAcroApp
Dim theForm As Acrobat.CAcroPDDoc
Dim jso As Object

AcroApp = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
theForm = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")

 

theForm.Open(filename)
jso = theForm.GetJSObject

 

Is it possible to communicate from acrobat to this vb.net application.

 

In other words, if something changes on my pdf i would like to do something on my vb.net application.

Any guidance would be helpful.

No, the communication is one way. The .Net script needs to poll Acrobat to check on status.
