Bookmarks inside a Dynamic PDF in ASP

Here is the situation, this ASP page has many small PDFs which are dynamically loaded with ASP. When you click on a link in the left sidebar, the embed PDF updates on the right.

I am wondering if it is possible in the table of contents to have bookmarks inside that PDF that would update the embedded PDF and go to other bookmarks at the same time? All of that done in ASP.

What do you guys think?

I thought this was your answer?

Your table of contents can have links to pages or Named Destinations (different from bookmarks)

Your pdf file can have links embedded that go to other pages inside the pdf or full urls outside the pdf.

that was the answer to another similar question

can it have links to named destinations that goes to another PDF and update the PDF inside the embed tag?

If you want to dynamically update the pdf on the fly then you would use something like

If you have adobe acrobat, I do think there might be away where you can program you pdf to read an xml file and render content based on that data as well.  In that case, you would probably send a querystring to the browser, the asp code reads the querystring and based on that data writes an xml file on the fly that updates the pdf.

hmmm, this is harder than I thought... Having external links in the PDF that links to named destinations works just fine and it is interesting to see that it would be possible.

Thanks :)
