My proof of concept project involves investigating the capabilities of Adobe Reader to allow customized menu options and functionality to be added to it.
What we hope to do is create a PDF using the LiveCycle services which will then be viewed online by a user through Adobe Reader. If possible, we'd be looking to add a customized menu with one or two options to send requests back to our server. Is such functionality possible using Adobe Reader 9?
So far, I've read of a Customization Wizard and a Plug-In API that seem to allow for such extensability. However, would these customizations have to be installed separately client-side on top of Adobe Reader ? As this project will affect a couple thousand of users we hope to be able to invoke functionality provided by the basic Adobe Reader without additional client-side configuration. (Also, Adobe Reader Extensions is not an option for this project.)
Is this possible, or what are our options?
Any info would be appreciated.
