Topic: PDDocSave from Browser

I've created a toolbar button that appears on the Acrobat toolbar in the browser. What i'm trying to do is save the PDF file that's open to a specified location on the local hard drive. The PDDocSave method just doesn't seem to work!

Is this method just not accessible when running the plug-in in the browser? It's quite frustrating...

Thanks in advance.

// create ASPathName
ASPathName pathName;
pathName = ASFileSysCreatePathName(ASGetDefaultFileSys(), ASAtomFromString("Cstring"), pathToPDF, NULL);
AVAlertNote("Pathname creation error");

// now save to the path
// save the current document
PDDocSave(pdDoc, PDSaveFull||PDSaveCollectGarbage, pathName, ASGetDefaultFileSys(), NULL, NULL);
AVAlertNote("File Saved");
AVAlertNote("Problem Saving PDF");
