JavaScript: how to add PDF Reader custom menu items/toolbar buttons?


Level 5

Hello there!

Is it possible to add custom menu items and/or toolbar buttons to PDF Reader?

I've trying with app.addMenuItem but had no success so far.

Thank you for any hints!

the addMenuItem method it correct, but you cannot use it from inside a PDF.

You have to write a folder level script instead which then is copied into the Javascripts folder of Acrobat or Reader.

After that you have to restart the app to see the new menu item.

Hey Radzmar,

Thanks, it works!

Now, how do I reference a function inside the PDF? Possible?
