Embed API loaded js script doesn't work


Level 1

Hello everyone,


I try to load an JS script into a fdf file to make some control on the form. I load the js script with this piece of code (Java) :

PDDocument document = PDDocument.load(pdfTemplateFile);
PDActionJavaScript javascript = new PDActionJavaScript(code);

"PDDocument" and "PDActionJavaScript" are component from the library : org.apache.pdfbox:pdfbox-app:2.0.15.


When i open the pdf generated with a standard navigator viewer (chrome or Firefox), the javascript code will be played and worked as expected.


But when i open the same pdf file with the Adobe PDF Embed API, it doesn't work. I follow the Sample find in this repository : and specialy the React samples that was interest me. I just replace the default pdf of the sample with the pdf generated.


Some of you have an idea ?


Thank for your regards.


Florian BREMEC.
