Hi All, 

I'm a true novice using javascript and api for pdf. 

I need someone to help me in the right direction.

My company populates pdfs which has fields with calculations on. These pdf are stored and then later printed.

I'm trying to print multiple pdf without opening the pdf (which is needed for the javascript to run and calc form fields).

Is there any way I can do trigger the calculate(now) to populate the form fields programmatically?

 

Thanks

Currently, the Document Services APIs cannot populate form data.

The only PDF developer tool that I am aware of that can blindly execute JavaScript in a PDF after fields have been populated is the Datalogics PDF Java Toolkit (JT). It will actually run the calculation scripts in the PDF just as though Acrobat were doing it. You will need to learn Java or hire a developer though.

JT is Adobe technology that is being marketed commercially by Datalogics.
