I am totally new for Acrobat product, Could you please guide me, how to create a plug-in? Any sample code/tutorial?
Thanks for your reply.
Look at 'Introduction to SDK' in the Acrobat SDK (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/acrobat/).
As Bernd recommends, you need to start by downloading the Acrobat SDK which has all documentation, sample code, etc.
HOWEVER, in order to develop a plugin for Adobe Reader, there are two things you are going to run into very quickly.
* You MUST use C/C++. C# is not supported.
* You MUST get a (paid for) license from Adobe Systems in order for your plugin to run. (there is no cost to develop a plugin for Adobe Acrobat, however).
I assume you mean by your second point that I actually have to own Acrobat professional, which I do.
I tried looking at the documentation, but it keeps crashing my browser.
However, from my experience with all other Adobe products (Studio MX, Authorware, etc), I do not expect a detailed walkthrough from start to finish, with pictures saying "click here" and such. Does this help manual actually contain this sort of thing?
I really appreciate the fast replies!
Yeah, I just looked at that.
The example tells me nothing. It is a one-page pdf that says 'click here to add the button' and 'click here to remove the button.' There is nothing that looks like a tutorial or walkthrough. There is nothing describing what was performed to make the button. Nowhere is there text explaining where to start.
If I don't already know what I am doing, a walkthough would be ideal for helping me learn.
Does such a walkthough or tutorial exist for making toolbar buttons?
