Adding Field Codes for Word Using Word Javascript API

I want to add field codes using word JavaScript API. I checked the API documentation but I found nothing regarding this. It would be great, if there a possible way to do this through the API.

        I use word a fair bit, and there are a number of add-ins I would like to write, but I can’t think of a way to do any of them without being able to essentially add variables to the text, which I think could only be done with field codes. I was really disappointed to find out that this feature doesn’t exist yet. (Or maybe I’m just missing something)

        When you add field code support also a method to force fieldcodes to UPDATE. This is especially important for DocProperty fields, for example.
