invoke javascript function from outside the pdf

Avatar

Hello



Is there a possibility to invoke a (inside) PDF-JavaScript function from outside the PDF?



Do I need RE? Do I need PDF API?



What I want to do is collect form data by a Server script.



Thank you

Sincerely

Lore

I don't know of a way to invoke a javascript function from outside the PDF. Adobe LiveCycle Forms

(Form Server) gives you the ability to extract form data from a submitted form. You should

investigate this option.
