Topic: Automated printing fdf-pdf through BrowserPlugIn

The following task serves me a problem:
I want to print more than one online generated fdf-document through the AcrobatPlugIn with Netscape4.5.

In an webenabled database application I generate a fdf-file and send it back to my webbrowser (Netscape4.5). For viewing the completed form the fdf-file is linked with a pdf-file which is downloaded automatically from the webserver and displayed in the AcrobatPlugIn inside of Netscape.
Printing of single documents works fine using the print button, the problem is an automated printing of more than one document.

With RTF-files we have solved this using a DDE-message (stored with the MIME-Type for rtf-documents) which starts printing and closing the document afterwards.

Adobe says that Acrobat Reader supports DDE (e.g. the message [FilePrint]), but i didn't get it to work.
Has anyone solved a similar problem and could give me a hint???

Thanks, Alf

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
