Hi, I'm wondering if its possible to have a custom menu item (Adobe Reader 8.1.2) which will run an executable piece of code when clicked. I was hoping to do this to enable PDF documents to be saved to an imaging and workflow system - in order to save into this, I need to run an executable which prompts the user to input some information before saving the document to this system so other users can access it.
cName: "Save To Imaging",
var shell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
Any pointers would be much appreciated.
First, do you have a copy or the link to the Acrobat JS API Reference?
Acrobat is "sandboxed' and has very little interface directly to the OS.
Thanks, I didn't appreciate it was sandboxed in this way which is a shame. I'll look into the plugin option instead but the costs are likely to stop me from going down that road.
Thanks for your help
