Retrieves the export value(s) of a check box, list box, or combo box.
The field must be a valid field handle of a check box, list box or combo box.
The export value of a check box can be either "Off" if the check box is not selected or an arbitrary string when the check box is selected.
The export value of a combo box or list box can be empty when no value is selected.
Since Acrobat 5, list boxes support multiple selected values. In this case the export values are delimited by a newline character.
The field type can be determined with the functions DynaPDF.GetFieldType, DynaPDF.GetField or DynaPDF.GetPageField.
