    Interacting with embedded object

    JJBApplied

      I'm using a bit of software called 3Dvia composer which is used to create 3D technical documentation.  The software is capable of exporting the 3D content to a PDF.  The content is then viewed in the PDF via an embedded activex player which has it's own API.

       

      I have one such PDF with embedded 3Dvia content which I would like to add some text boxes to and some JavaScript to extract information from the embedded content and put it in the text boxes.  I have successfully done this before in an HTML page using VBScript.

       

      Unfortunately I know next to nothing about JavaScript!  Can anybody give me some idea of how I could identify the embedded player in the PDF using JavaScript, so that I can use it's methods?

       

      Any advice would be much appreciated!
