save without edit forms

Post by lewisv » Tue May 26 2009

I have a pdf form that allows the user to edit form fields.
I am allowing the user to edit these fields in my application. I then want to save the pdf file, but the file should be flattened, basically i want the data the user entered to be on the form, but from then on the pdf file should be un-editable.

How do i do this?

Hello,

You can use the LockAllObjects method.

The LockAllObjects method is used to lock/unlock all objects on the current page. Locking an object prevents it from being selected and therefore visually edited

Below is a link to our online help where you can find a code snippet on how to implement this method.

Is this function in the PDFCreator object. I can not find it.

Also does this lock fields for all edits, i want to make sure someone can not edit the document even if they open the document in the standard adobe pdf viewer?

Hello,

Please make sure that you are using the Amyuni PDF Creator product and not the Amyuni PDF Converter print driver. That method is not exposed in the PDF Converter.
