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

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
