Is there a way to add a search function to an interactive PDF when viewed in a browser (ie NOT Acrobat reader).
var textToSearch = this.getField("Search Term").valueAsString;
if (textToSearch!="") search.query(textToSearch, "ActiveDoc");
But, when viewed through a browser it does work.
Am I asking the impossible?
What browser are you using? What PDF plugin is being used in it to display
I'm using safari - however my client will be using different browsers across different locations and on different systems.
A mine field I know…
There's no real way to ensure it will work if the file is opened inside a browser window, as most browsers use their own PDF plugins, and those plugins are not likely to execute the code correctly. For best results instruct the users to download the file and open it in Adobe Reader.
OK - Many thanks try67.
I thought this might be the case, but worth an ask on here just in case
