I have been trying to setup a pdf to save to a predefined path with a click on a button.



I tried this code :



var aDocs = app.activeDocs;

var myDoc = aDocs[0];

myDoc.saveAs("C:\\" + Title.rawValue + ".pdf");



But i have this error :



myDoc has no properties

3:XFA:formulaire1[0]:#subform[0]:Bouton1[0]:click



Thanks in advance...

You can save the current doc using the app.execMenuItem("SaveAs") this will bring up a dialog and allow the user to select the location for the saveed file. You cannot indicate where the file will go without certifying the document (Acrobat does not allow you to do unattended operations like that without the users knowledge).

Thanks for your answer.



I have seen your previous posts about 'SaveAs', but my englich isn't very good and i don't understand everything.



I tried to do this, with the solution whow is explain in this post :

http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b74b77



But i have this error



event.target.myTrustedSpecialTaskFunc100 is not a function

1:XFA:formulaire1[0]:#subform[0]:Bouton1[0]:click



-----------------

The code of the button :

event.target.SaveAsFunc(event.target);

-----------------



The JS code :



mySaveAsPO = app.trustPropagatorFunction(function(myDoc, path)

{

app.beginPriv();

var myDoc = event.target;

return retn = myDoc.saveAs(path);

app.endPriv();

});

SaveAsFunc = app.trustedFunction(function(myDoc, path)

{

app.beginPriv();



var av = formulaire1.subform1.departement_inclusion.rawValue



var g = "/c/PDF_Folder/" + av + ".pdf



var retn = mySaveAsPO(myDoc, g);



app.endPriv();

return retn;

});

-------------

Thanks for your help

You will have to certify your document before the privilidged function will run. The certification allows the user to set up a trust - that he will allow script to run.

I have certified my document but i always have the same message :



event.target.SaveAsFunc is not a function

1:XFA:formulaire1[0]:#subform[0]:Bouton1[0]:click



In the 'hierarchy', i've saved the script under Form1.



I don't understand this message : An error in the script, or the script is not found?



Thank's for your help

Here is my code :



Button code : event.target.SaveAsFunc(event.target);



Script code (i created this script with a right click on Form1 in the hierarchy window, and wrote the code in the script editor)



mySaveAsPO = app.trustPropagatorFunction(function(myDoc, path)

{

app.beginPriv();

var myDoc = event.target;

return retn = myDoc.saveAs(path);

app.endPriv();

});

SaveAsFunc = app.trustedFunction(function(myDoc, path)

{

app.beginPriv();



var av = formulaire1.subform1.departement_inclusion.rawValue



var g = "/c/PDF_Folder/" + av + ".pdf



var retn = mySaveAsPO(myDoc, g);



app.endPriv();

return retn;

});



I don't know if it is the good process ?

Don't do it in a scripting object to begin with. Get it to work outside of the script object ....then we will make a script object out of it.

That js script goes into a folder in the Acrobat installation and when Acrobat loads that script will be picked up (it is global in scope). Now you can reference it as you have been doing.
