in hpdftex.def there are these lines in \@TextField:
    \pdfstartlink user {\PDFForm at Text}%
    \MakeTextField{\Fld at width}{\Fld at height}\pdfendlink}%

where \PDFForm at Text gives most of the pdf code for the
text field object, and the object number itself is generated
by the \pdfstartlink ... \pdfendlink, I guess. However I don't
see how I could  access this number.

Thanks for helping,
