    External/Exec event example needed

    tkilshaw

      I'm using Acrobat 7. I have a form with interactive fields and scripts that loads from a web server. Using the FDF URL extension it also loads some data into the form. For example:

       

      http://192.168.30.106:8080/qforms/pdfs/30799_Appraisal_Form_Template.pdf#FDF=http://192.16 8.30.106:8080/qforms/QFormsServlet?FormID=UJ9538R2WGKXWA3GQMEH&Action=load

       

      I need to run a JavaScript after the FDF is loaded.

       

      The documentation mentions event External/Exec and says:

       

      "This event is the result of an external access, for example, through OLE, AppleScript, or loading an FDF."

       

      Sounds like what I need.

       

      Where should my JavaScript be put so that it can be triggered by that event?

       

      Has anyone got this to work? One example is worth 1000 pages of documentation with no examples.

       

      I have searched the interned for clues but everyone seems to be as clueless as me.

       

      Any help greatly appreciated.
