Topic: Can FDF be used to set/unset read-only flag?

Hello -

We have an application that uses pdf/fdf pairs to display pdfs populated with dynamic data.

Now I also need to dynamically control whether the final pdf can be printed.

I know of the security option that can be set using Acrobat that makes a pdf read-only, but then I need to have 2 fdf/pdf pairs for each one we have now.

So the question is this: can the read-only flag be controlled by setting a field/value pair in the fdf file?

Thanx!
Lev
