Topic: Printing Java Script

I have a multiple-page form. A button is created on these pages by which the end user (using the Acrobat Reader only- not a browser) can print the form and is prompted to fill in the required fields- thanks to the java script associated with the print button.

Problem is, the end users can bypass this print button and instead use the print function on the reader itself, therefore printing the form without getting prompted for the empty required fields.

When the print option is disabled under security, although the printing feature is disabled, the print button is disabled too.

Question: How can I configure the print button to print while the printing option is disabled? Or, how can I configure the reader's built-in print function so that it would prompt the user to fill-in the required fields.

Thank you

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
