does anybody know if it's possible to integrate some kind of java-script in a PDF file with the functionality to send an email as soon as some one opens the PDF on her or his PC?
Thank you all.
I think that would be called a privacy violation.
Not possible, at least not silently. The user will have to confirm this action and actually perform the Send command.
As mentioned, that is considered a privacy and security violation to do something like that without informing the user and getting their consent.
I neither want to do it silently nor violate any privacy.
The question is, if it's technically possible?
All of the above was done because Adobe and others consider this an invasion of privacy.
Would you want a third party to know that you just opened a copy of your tax return?
Note that if the script can send a notice of the opening, it can send other personal information from the document.
