I need to get the current page of already opened pdf files programmatically from a 3rd party application. 

Is there a way for this?

In what app, exactly, is the PDF file already opened, and using what API if any?

The pdf is already opened using adobe acrobat reader. 

  • PDF is not opened through the code /3rd party application.
  • PDF is opened normaly as an example write click -> open with adobe acrobat reader

 

I need to write some code or find an existing API to get the opened pdfs and their current page numbers. 

  • The code /3rd party application suppose to identify opened pdfs and get their current page numbers
  •  

Hope the question is clearer now.

Thank you. While Adobe Acrobat (paid app) has a suitable API for this purpose, Adobe Acrobat Reader (free app) has a very limited programming API and has no interface (so far as I can think) to return this info by any programming method.
