C++ 11 Fundamentals

This course will introduce you to C++ 11 and teach you about syntax fundamentals.

I working on a order form in PDF.  There are 2 fields that are needed to determine what options are available.  Below is the breakdown of the 2 fields.
"MODEL:" - Select what model you are interested in.
"LENGTH:" - Based on what "MODEL" is selected from the drop down available lengths will be shown in the drop down.  Those lengths are shown in the attachment named "test data".
"COST:" - Finally based on selection in "MODEL" and "LENGTH" the price will automatically be filled.  The cost is also listed in the "test data" attachment.

Can this be done in .pdf?

Environment - SharePoint 2016 On premise. Office Online Server deployed and is an option to open PDF files with word online. Adobe Reader DC (Newest version)

We sign PDF files electronically and that work fine. The issue is when a PDF file that is stored in a SharePoint document library is opened and signed, when the user goes to save the file Adobe Reader opens a Windows Explorer dialog asking the user where the file should be saved to. The SharePoint library is not mapped so it is not possible for the user to save back to SharePoint. The desired behavior, and what we had in SharePoint 2010, is that the file is saved from where is was opened, in this case a SharePoint 2016 document library. (The way office documents work when opened from SharePoint.)
So what am I missing? Why doesn't this work? Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated.

I have a simple form to navigate some records in a table.

I'd like to be able to press a button to create a .PDF of that record that is active in the form.

With in that form I have three fields that I'd like to use as part of the name to save the .PDF in a predetermined file.
(If possible, I'd like to separate them with a space or an "_" or something.
Control Source
NAMC
PartName
TagNumber

Save it in a designated folder that is with the folder that the database is held in.

We have users who are complaining that their PDF Icons are clear next to the filename. When they click it, it still works. It is annoying.  They are accessing their files through Parallels (RDS solution). Thanks

Windows 10 Default Applications.

I have a windows 10 machine that has adobe reader installed.    By default windows 10 sets the default programs for pdf to be Edge.  I however go into default apps and change this to adobe reader.  The next day the user logs in again and the default application for pdf is again changed back to Edge …

there are no GPO's that are being pushed to change this …..     Any thoughts ?

I had this question after viewing Close PDF file without Save prompt.

Novice here... trying to close Acrobat 7 (after opening a .tif  file) without having the "Do you want to save changes to  .... before closing" dialogue popping up.
I just want to open the .tif in Acrobat, then close it without having to say "no"
I think the above answer may work for what I'm doing but I do not know how to implement it

Trying to determine if this is even possible.

I am creating an employee review form in Acrobat form.  Part of the form is how well they perform in certain areas.  This is based on a scale where 4 is highest and 1 is lowest .  To keep the form a little more generic some areas may not be applicable to all employees.  I know I can do a simple calculation and average all of these numbers for an overall composite score.  However where I am having issues is when an area is not applicable to a certain person I DO NOT want to include that in the calculation for the overall calculation.

I have developed a form with several text fields and a signature.
When I press the signature button it notifies that the fields have not been completed but immediately asks for the signature when it should not.

How can the signature be canceled in that case?

Working on a proposal-writing tool in MS Word.  My VBA toolbar assists the user in document creation.  One feature is to embed PDF product data sheets into the Word document as needed.  I've done a lot of research and experimenting and can't find a foolproof way to embed the PDF object in a way that will display each PDF page on a separate Word page.  Word 2016 does a pretty decent job of importing PDFs into Word, but there are reflow issues so it's spotty.  Best I've come up with is tell the document recipient they need to double click on each embedded PDF (icon or first page preview) to open and print it separately from the Word print command.  

Anybody seen or come up with a way to save the customer from having to do that?  Ideally, VBA could programmatically open each embedded PDF object and print it at the same time the customer prints the Word document?  Or we could display a dialog that prompts "this document has embedded PDFs.  Click here to open and print each one" But is there a method to open embedded PDF objects and send them to the printer?

Any ideas would be appreciated!

I'm currently trying to print out PDF files in a folder on my c drive,I thought it'd be smart to put all files in a printing queue, and then print them all in one go. Is this in any way possible with VBA?
I am trying to avoid looping through the folder.I cam manually copy and paste them in the print queue but I am trying to avoid doing that also.
Thanks

Good Morning Experts,

I just rolled out a shiny new Windows Server 2016 Remote Desktop Session Host\Terminal Server and everything is working fine and all is right with the world.

Then the employees that handle PDFs all day started screaming.  Apparently, Adobe Acrobat DC as the preview handler for PDFs is a slow nightmare.  I have tested it and they are right.  It is horribly slow and near useless in the Windows Explorer preview window.  All the Google fu I could muster did not yield any solutions.

I have heard that the Foxit Reader is a good replacement for Adobe Reader in these situations.  I have tested it and it is very fast at rendering PDFs.

My question:

Can I set the default application for PDFs to Adobe Reader and the preview handler for Windows Explorer to Foxit?  If so, how?

Thoughts?

Hi,
see javascript code below (written in adobe acrobat pro javascript editor)
 
this code attached to button in pdf form . when click on the button it attached the pdf to new mail in outlook and fill the subject and the body of the email.
i need to have the body of the email BOLD  , how can i achieve this?

CODE:

// This is the form return email. It's hardcoded

// so that the form is always returned to the same address.

// Change address on your form to match the code below

var cToAddr = ""


// First, get the client CC email address

var cCCAddr = this.getField("ClientEmail").value;

// Now get the beneficiary email only if it is filled out

var cBenAddr = this.getField("BennyEmail").value;

if(cBenAddr != "")

cCCAddr += ";" + cBenAddr;

// Set the subject and body text for the email message

var cSubLine ="return protocol for fix - " + " company name: " + this.getField("company name").value  + " , " + " branch number: " + this.getField("branch name").value + " , " +  " account number: " + " " + this.getField("account number").value

var cBody = "Hi,\n\n Please see hed protocol"

 

// Send the entire PDF as a file attachment on an email

this.mailDoc({bUI: true, cTo: cToAddr, cCc: cCCAddr, cSubject: cSubLine, cMsg: cBody});

}
else {
}

We are experiencing IE 11 Crashing or what it says is Stopped working...so when a few of our users that use State Tax Forms websites the get down to the PDF's and when they click on the PDF they need to view and it crashes IE11 or like I said it stops working.

Does anyone have any fixes or has anyone seen this happening?

I have an Access application that can export fields to a PDF file.  However, for this work it needs the full version of Adobe installed.  Not just the reader.  So I was wondering if there was a way to check programmatically to see if Adobe Acrobat was loaded and not just the reader.

Thanks John

I need a PDF editor about once a month to change data on a report. I was paying Adobe $15 a month for this is there a free product or one time cost product that would do this. Nuance looked promising and cheaper but reviews are bad. Tracker might work. I can use Foxit phantom if it works. Can I get your advice.

Looking for a solution that will allow a team to simultaneously edit PDF's Similar to the way Onedrive will allow users to work on the same word document and see the changes other users are making relatively instantly. Basically don't want 2 people to be over writing each other or have to piece meal it and put the document together at the end.

Hi all,

I have problem to display my PDF file in an existing popup window using spring framework. The workflow is when I click a button from the main page, it popups a new window (child) and showing progress status. After the file finished generating, I set the view in controller and return to jsp. However, the PDF file displays (using DefaultResourceLoader and response.flushBuffer) in the main page instead of the popup window. I want to show in popup. Anything wrong? How can I specify which window the PDF should be displayed?

Please help. Thanks.

Can anyone help me solve below problem:

I have over 2000 png images saved in different files on my computer. I want to write a VBScript function that does something like go to a particular folder and iteratively copy-paste all the png files in that folder to a PDF file or word document .

1. The header before pasting the png files in the word document should be same as the folder name.
2.  The .png files should be inserted in order of when they got created. That is the first created .png file will be first inserted and the last will be last inserted in the word or PDF file.
3. Upon successful copy of all the .png files in this folder,  the folder should be deleted.

Any assistance if this is possible will be appreciated
