Topic: Events fire during PDF load?

I am trying to do the following:

* User views a PDF in IE4.01 w/ Reader. PDF has input text fields and a 'Submit' button that maps to a URL

* User fills in fields and clicks Submit

* On web server, data is retrieved and saved. A component I have from creates a new file with filled in information from a template PDF.

* User's browser is redirected to completed version on server

Here's where the question is: I want the Submit button to no longer be visible on the form. I can use Javascript to hide the button by way of the Validate event of a (hidden) text box, but when I programmatically populate the text box, the Validate event doesn't fire upon opening the document. Is there another event that does fire when a PDF is opened, or is there a better way to do this?

Thanks guys.
