Topic: General on designing a plug-in
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 128963

Can someone provide me with a general outline or the steps I need to take in designing a plug-in using an existing Acrobat object namely, a Button type field that adds fields to a PDF form? I realize that I will need Acrobat's SDK and Visual Studio. As an avid PDF forms developer as well as a programmer in Delphi (OOP), while I'm not altogether familiar w/Visual Studio, I don't think we're talking Rocket Scientist stuff here. I simply want to take a number of pre-canned functions contained in a JS file and associate them with fields to be created by a Button object installed as a plug-in. BTW, the main purpose behind all this has to do with security concerns since the JS file is open for anyone to view, something I'm not presently comfortable with. Replies to this subject matter are most appreciated.
