I'm developing an interactive pdf which will live on a cdrom. It needs a search function and I was hoping to achieve this simply by placing a button in the interface which will execute a menu command, ie. Query from the Edit menu. In order for this to work, however, there needs to be some sort of javascript attached to this button as well which tells acrobat reader the correct index to search.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Also if anyone has any other suggestions for search functions the input would be much appreciated.

This has to work on both pc and mac.

Thanks in advance,
Linda
