Is it possible to use Adobe PDF Embed offline in an application? Can anyone provide this SDK for download?
Currently, we do not offer an offline solution.
Hi, thanks for this information. I want to make a suggestion. That is... Adobe needs an offline solution. Offering an offline solution would make this better for those who do not have access to the web or have poor website connectivity. I travel to many countries and help many people via PDF data. Some of these countries have places where the internet goes down for long periods. Any application I would build would lose this great functionality when there is an outage. Thanks so much
I can't imagine us ever offering an offline solution for Embed API. Consider using the free Adobe Reader for offline viewing.
Hey thanks for the reply. I did consider Adobe Reader, in my case Acrobat DC. However for me to get the same functionality I have been able to get from the embed API I will need to create a plugin via IAC. Which I plan to do. I just have more to do to get such ready. I have searched hi and low for something (plugin or program) that can let another application control navigation and text selection of Acrobat Reader or DC. I cannot find anything even close. In this post it is recommended to me that some thing that could do it would be an application developed with the IAC (interapplication communication) interface. Like I said I plan to do that. Thanks
So far as I know, the APIs to control navigation externally are only in Acrobat, not in Acrobat Reader. This seems a deliberate omission.
From the IAC documentation...
On Windows, the only OLE automation supported for Reader is the PDF browser controls interface, which enables you to treat a PDF document as an ActiveX document within an external application. This makes it possible to load a file, move to various pages within the file, highlight a text selection, and specify various print and display options.
PDF browser controls are available through the AxAcroPDFLib.AxAcroPDF interface,
You're right. I remember now what is missing; there is no API to discover the current page, but you can go to a page. Many people are stymied by this.
Hi, hope all is well. Do you mean that nothing needs to be constructed (developed, programmed)? I only said a plugin as an idea that something will have to be created that gives the type of control over the Acrobat applications similar to the embed API. Or is there something that does this already? Thanks
