Live Hit-Counter inside PDF document
Posted on 2004-11-11
I need to put a "hit counter" into a PDF.
FYI - a "hit counter" is a numerical graphic which lives behind a CGI script on a server, and each time it's loaded, it incriments by one. It tells in real-time how many people have accessed the document (usually a web page or word document - and I need one for my PDF). If the user is offline, the graphic will appear "broken" and won't count (not an issue in my case - docs are all online)
How do I get Acrobat to draw the counter from my server, instead of embedding the "00001" initial static graphic on the page?
