Links are set by addlink() batch process. I wish to get text on which rectangular link field are placed.Is it possible? If so how can I get?

1st thanks to Thom and Kaiser. I have read a lot of solution thread of you. Thais is the first time getting chance to thank.
Actually at first I set following script to open corresponding pdf file.
Working fine for single file but not for variable. If text of link is 1, 1.pdf file will be linked. If text of link is 2, 1.pdf file will be linked.
for (var p = 0; p < this.numPages; p++)
var numWords = this.getPageNumWords(p);
for (var i=0; i<numWords; i++)
var ckWord = this.getPageNthWord(p, i, true);
for(var a = 0; a< 500; a++)
if ( ckWord == a)
var q = this.getPageNthWordQuads(p, i);
// Convert quads in default user space to rotated
// User space used by Links.
m = (new Matrix2D).fromRotated(this,p);
mInv = m.invert()
r = mInv.transform(q)
r = r.split(",");
l = addLink(p, [r, r, r, r]);
l.borderColor = color.red
l.borderWidth = 1
var mpath = "/C/Users/Dream_peak/Desktop/+a+".pdf";
var b = app.openDoc(mpath);
No change in setAction. I think need another parameter. In this case what should I do?

Now I think looping conditional script is posted through setAction.
Just like this under link action:
for(var a = 0; a< 500; a++)
if (event.getPageNthWord == a)
var mpath = "/C/Users/Dream_peak/Desktop/"+a+".pdf";
I am unable to set perfect coding. Would you help me.
The input to "setAction" is a string of JS code.You're code actually opens the PDF. Do this:
var b = "app.openDoc(\"/C/Users/Dream_peak/Desktop/"+a+".pdf\");"

I am really happy to express thank to you. Your tutorial is great.
Excellent! then please mark this one as answered.
another problem is arisen. When I set for(var a = 5002002; a< 8999999; a++) it is taking more time to finish, even I cannot get output, it is showing "Not responding" but when I use less number, it is working fine.
What should I do?

I have also tested on another file. Working fine.
However in main file no result. Would you tell me there is any problem in this file for searching certain number. https://acrobat.com/#d=GXpbvcTHXW9bd6xvCwZ-wA
Sorry for frequently Asking. Above issue solved. Taking more time during Executing.
If I want to set relevant path what should I do. I was trying but getting error.
var b = "app.openDoc(\a+".pdf\",this);"
Read this, and start posting to a new thread

I have posted a new thread named "How to reduce executing time". Would you review that?

Not easily. You would have to get the location of the link's quads and then look for words that fall within those quads.
