Hi All,

We are using iManage Filesite 9.0 client as a document management system which uses an API "IManAcrobatReader10.api" to display Save to Worksite option under the File menu. I need to access this using the Action "Execute the Menu item" but I only Save As option in there is which is local save to disk. I need to somehow call this API probably using a java script. I am not familiar doing that. Could someone provide probably an example of code.

I will appreciate the help!

Hi,

Could you call the app.ListMenuItems call to list all the menu items with the plugin installed, then see what the menu is called if it is listed and then you should be able to call app.execMenuItem ( "INSERTNAMEHERE"); to call that menu.

This is a bit of a shot in the dark as I don't have access to the product you are using so can't test.

Hope this helps

You will need to contact the makers of the plugin. Unless they make a way for you to do this, you can’t do it. There is no way to automate things which show a dialogue unless a specific way is made.

Thanks I have contacted them and they asking me to buy a SDK license which cost $15000 for one line of code. I appreciate your help.

I've worked with document management systems in the past. I assure you, it's not one line of code to expose their plugin to the Acrobat JavaScript menu item interface... especially after Acrobat X and the whole JS/MenuItem blacklist architecture.

Assume you can't call the menu item. What is it you actually want to do? Check in the document? There's very likely another way.

Well, you have your solution. You cannot do this without their SDK.

Did you try the listMenuItems (not ListMenuItems) mentioned above? It should list the internal names, even of items added by plugins.

I'm guessing its "iMan:iManSave" given the filename of the plugin.

When I use:

app.execMenuItem("iMan:iManSave");

Console does not show anything but the dialogue box does not comes

But, when I user app.execMenuItem("iManSave");

it gives me error:

InvalidArgsError: Invalid arguments.

App.execMenuItem:1:Field Save Form to DMS:Mouse Up

Both ways, this window does not show up.

app.execMenuItem("iMan:iManSave");

is the correct method. However, the menu item probably isn't whitelisted as being permissible to execute via JavaScript.

See documentation on how to edit your registry or plist.
