Topic: How to log every time a client views a PDF?
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 112391

First of all, I'm very new to PDF so bear with me..

I'd like to email PDFs to clients and have them automatically log every time it is opened. This needs to happen without any user interaction.

I have a solution for HTML documents, by including a 1x1 pixel tracking image in the page, like: http://myserver/tracking.gif?id=12345

Is there something similar I can do for PDFs?

I have tried adding javascript to the PDF but it does not seem to run at all, I must be doing something wrong. I have also tried adding a form, but that requires the user to click the submit button.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
