    Reader SDK: any way to see what text the user has selected?

    blong2

      I'm using the Adobe Reader SDK with C#, looking at the interapplication communication features.

       

      I can open a document in Reader and allow the user to user the reader tools like select text, etc.

       

      Here's the problem: I want to have my application know what text the user currently has selected.  And I'd like it to know the name of the field that the user has selected, not just the text of the field.

       

      Microsoft Office's Interop has something like this:

      currentDocument.GetSelectedText();

       

      Is there any way to do this with IAC or the javascript or plug-in features of the Reader SDK?

      If not, can it be done with the Acrobat API?  I've looked through both sets of documentation, and haven't found what i needed.

       

      Thanks for any help!
