I’ve never added a JavaScript activity inside a PDF report. Notwithstanding, I’ve done a lot of web improvement utilizing JavaScript. I have a couple of inquiries to whoever has any experience with JavaScript inside a PDF report.

NitroPDF and Adobe Acrobat certainly support JavaScript in PDF documents. Is there a norm on different articles that exist and capacities to control a PDF document by means of JavaScript? All that I’ve found up to this point has been from Adobe. Elsewhere appears to reference Adobe’s documentation. Is there a norm out there, or is Adobe simply the “accepted” standard?

Likewise, Do all PDF watchers support JavaScript activities?

The best documentation on utilizing JavaScript inside a PDF archive that I could find was from Adobe – Adobe:: Acrobat JavaScript Scripting Guide.

NitroPDF has this connection – NitroPDF:: JavaScript in PDF Files, however, it fundamentally says it upholds what Adobe has.

I additionally tracked down this connection from Scribus – Scribus:: How to improve your PDF structures with JavaScript, however, this just incorporates a couple of little scraps of code. Nothing really valuable.

Adobe has documentation on how you can set breakpoints, and so forth for JavaScript utilizing their IDE. Is it conceivable to run JavaScript in a PDF record utilizing another IDE and have breakpoints, etc…? It would be amazing to track down something as cool as Firebug.


Kindly don’t answer how to control a PDF that is stacked in an internet browser. The inquiry is tied in with running JavaScript from inside a PDF archive. I’m attempting to investigate the conceivable outcomes accessible through executing JavaScript in the PDF report. Explicitly I might utilize capacities from quickpdflibrary to add JavaScript usefulness to existing records.

Another valuable connection is Developing with Acrobat JavaScript. Evidently, JavaScript code in PDFs is much of the time called AcroJS or Acrobat JavaScript.
