Topic: importing document level javascript
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 54241

I have developed a number of document level javascripts for field validation. There are several PDF forms that I would like include these in, and I'm looking for a way to import these doc-level scripts into multiple PDF docs. Users are accesing the PDFs remotely over the web, and I don't want users to have to copy a .js file into thier acrobat/javascripts/ directory.

What I would like to do is to add a menu item that would allow a forms developer to select the function from a menu, and have acrobat import the selected script into a PDF doc.

I can create a .js file for the forms developers (I've already added menu items to create standard fields in a PDF doc).

I know could always have them cut-and-paste the code into each new PDF, but I was hoping for a programatic method.

thanks in advance
