Hi all,

I need some help in generating a serial code in a text field in acobat to increment when the following applies.

When i open the pdf, i need to print 10 copies. I need a javascript function to generate a sequential number for each printed copy. Then the pdf should save the last serial printed upon closing of file. When the file is open next time and printed again , should advance the serial numbers and save the last upon closing.

Sounds complex but i did not find a solution anywhere.

Acrobat SDK and JavaScript, Windows

It's possible, but only if the file is printed from a button that you add to it (or to the application). If the user used the built-in Print command of Acrobat (or Reader) they can specify any number of copies and you won't be able to keep track of it, as it's considered a single print command.
