question about API

Post by cambazz » Tue May 27, 2008 8:15 am


I need to show documents in an interactive manner. I need to perform to different kinds of operations.

I need to be able to insert stuff to pdf. Highlight certain words programmatically, or maybe just put an icon right next to a word. Basically anything to do with content.

User interactivity. User must be able to highlight, or select words, and somehow I like to submit those to my server.

Is it possible?

Best Regards,

To achieve this you need to embed Print2Flash documents into your AS2 Flash movie as described here: ... mFlash.php Then you may obtain a reference to the page MovieClip objects using getPage Document API function and do anithing with this object a standard MovieClip class allows: draw content on its surface, highlight words, add images, etc. Also you may find useful this forum topic for highlighting words: ... =115&p=264
To submit information to the server, you may use standard ActionScript capabilities: LoadVars class, etc.
