Introduction The Adobe® Acrobat® 8.1SDK is a set of tools that help you develop software that interacts with Acrobat 8.1 technology. The SDK contains header files, type libraries, simple utilities, sample code, and documentation.

For the benefit of previous users, this document summarizes the changes to the SDK in Adobe® Acrobat® 8.0 and 8.1. Unless otherwise indicated, changes apply to Acrobat 8.0.

Back to top IDE Support On Microsoft® Windows®, the supported development environment is now Visual ● Studio 2005.

On Mac OS, Xcode 2.3 is now supported and Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later is required.

● CodeWarrior is no longer supported. If you cannot upgrade to Xcode and need to use CodeWarrior, you should continue to use the Acrobat 7.0.5 SDK.

Back to top 3D Support U3D Elements Support ● Beginning with Acrobat 8.1, the U3D data contained in PDF documents can include a more compressed form of mesh blocks that comply with Right Hemisphere Adobe 3D Compressed Mesh. The U3D data can also include U3D metadata and a standardized expression of units scaling factor data.

For information more information on U3D data and Right Hemisphere Adobe 3D Compressed Mesh, see U3D Supported Elements.

PRC Support ● Beginning with Acrobat 8.1, PDF files can include a new 3D file format called PRC.

PRC is a highly compressed CAD visualization format. The PRC specification is available at www.adobe.com/go/acrobat3d_developer.

3D JavaScript API Changes ● For more information on the following changes, see Developing Acrobat Applications Using JavaScript and the JavaScript for Acrobat 3D Annotations API Reference.

(Acrobat 8.1) The following objects are new: ScrollWheelEvent, ScrollWheelEventHandler, SelectionEvent, and SelectionEventHandler.

(Acrobat 8.1) The HitInfo object has additional properties: material, surfaceNormal, textureCoordinate.

(Acrobat 8.1) The Node object has an additional property: metadataString (Acrobat 7, but previously undocumented) The Light object has an additional property: directionLocal.

(Acrobat 8.1) The Runtime object has the additional properties: canvasCount, overrideSpinTool, scrollWheelSpeed, speedThreshold, strafeSpeed, and walkSpeed.

(Acrobat 8.0) The Runtime object has the additional property: TOOL_NAME_SPIN.

(Acrobat 8.1) The Scene object has the additional properties: node and selected.

(Acrobat 8.1) The following APIs have been deprecated:

CameraEvent.isNewCanvas (a property) ●

JavaScript Support For more information on the following changes, see Developing Acrobat Applications Using JavaScript and the JavaScript for Acrobat API Reference.

Remember, this document summarizes the changes to the SDK in AdobeAcrobat 8.0 and 8.1. Unless otherwise indicated, changes apply to Acrobat 8.0.

namespace for existing web services and for web services that use HTTP (REST).

SOAP-related properties and methods are now under Net.SOAP. and Net.Discovery. The Net.HTTP object allows access to web services that use HTTP.

Document.xfa (was previously undocumented) ●

–  –  –

New color-related APIs include Doc.colorConvertPage, ● Doc.embedOutputIntent, Doc.getColorConvertAction, and the colorConvertAction object.

API Changes ● The Certificate object has additional properties: privateKeyValidityEnd, ● privateKeyValiditiyStart, validityEnd, and validityStart. (The last two were previously undocumented.) The CertificateSpecifier object has additional properties: subjectDN, ●

–  –  –

The SecurityHandler object has several new properties: docDecrypt, ● docEncrypt, and validateFDF. (These properties were previously undocumented.) The PrintParams object has several new methods for handling booklet printing.

● The SignatureInfo object has a new property, digestMethod.

● The method app.openDoc has a new parameter, cDest.

● The method Document.getLegalWarnings no longer dirties the document (in ● other words, use of the method does not flag the document as having unsaved changes).

The execution of menu items through the execMenuItem method is now ● restricted to a short list of safe menus. For more information, see “execMenuItem” under “app methods” in the JavaScript for Acrobat API Reference.

As of Acrobat 8.1, there are new security restrictions on certain search and spell ● methods. For more information, see the JavaScript for Acrobat API Reference.

Support for E4X ● The new version of the JavaScript interpreter includes support for E4X, the ECMA-357 standard.

New Security Policy Preference ● In the JavaScript section of the Acrobat preferences, there is a new check box called Enable Global Object Security Policy (select Edit Preferences JavaScript).

When this preference is checked (the default), each time a global property is written, the origin that set it is remembered. Thereafter, only origins that match can access the variable. For files, this means that only the file that set the variable can access it. For documents from URLs, it means that only the host that set it can access the variable.

When not checked, documents from different origins can access the variable, which was the behavior in previous versions.

Use of Unsupported Calls ● Some undocumented and unsupported JavaScript calls are no longer accessible.

Please contact Adobe Developer Support if these restrictions are problematic.

Back to top Plug-in Support The following changes may affect your plug-ins. For more information on these changes, see Developing Plug-ins and Applications and Developing Applications Using Interapplication Communication.

Remember, this document summarizes the changes to the SDK in AdobeAcrobat 8.0 and 8.1. Unless otherwise indicated, changes apply to Acrobat 8.0.

Acrobat 8 and greater support a single document interface (SDI). This change in window behavior requires changes to some third-party plug-ins.

using ExecMenu. Menu items not on the list cannot be executed programmatically. For more information, see “Determining if a menu item can be executed” in Developing Plug-ins and Applications.

The Color Conversion API has been extended to include new APIs that enable ● you to add color conversion operations to your plug-in or PDF Library applications. By using this extended API, you can convert a page based on a list of conversion actions. Each conversion action contains a set of matching fields, what the action should do if an object matches the matching fields, and conversion parameters.

You can now optimize an active PDF document with the PDF optimizer API.

● The Acrobat core API and the PDF Library API are more closely aligned. PDF ● Library applications can now link to the PDF Library DLL file using HFTs.

Using the Acrobat core API, you can now export data from PDF document ● objects to XML files. To retrieve data from a PDF document object, use the PDDocExportUserProperties method.

API Changes ●

The following new APIs are available:

The following APIs have been deprecated:

AFRegisterFormUIFrameworkHandler AFUnregisterFormUIFrameworkHandler Back to top Online Collaboration Support for Database and Web Discussions comment repositories has been ● deprecated.

Acrobat 8 introduces Shared Reviews, a new way of conducting document reviews ● and approvals. You are encouraged to use this new approach to online collaboration. For more information on Shared Reviews, see the Acrobat Help.

For more information on online collaboration, see Acrobat Online Collaboration: Setup and Administration.

Back to top Interapplication Communication Acrobat 8 and greater support a single document interface (SDI). The methods AcroApp.SetFrame and AcroApp.GetFrame do not work in SDI mode. For more information, see the Interapplication Communication API Reference.

Back to top pdfmark Operator The pdfmark operator no longer supports JDF. For more information, see the pdfmark Reference.

Back to top Samples

Several of the samples have been improved and updated:

The DocSign sample has been updated to demonstrate how to add a custom ● appearance for a digital signature.

A sample cryptographic service provider (CSP) is provided as a DLL. The sample CSP ● opens PFX files and uses their credentials.

SampleRegistrar is a separate sample application to manage the certificates bound to the sample CSP. This application interacts with the CSP to register or unregister a digital ID file (a PFX file), add or remove certificates, and list registered digital IDs.

For more information, see the Guide to SDK Samples.

Back to top Documentation The documentation set for the Acrobat SDK is installed along with the software and is located in the Documentation folder.

All the guides have been updated and revised with a new format, editorial improvements, and technical updates.

Acrobat 8.1 introduces the guide Acrobat Implementation of the PDF Specification.

This guide describes PDF extensions supported in the Adobe Acrobat 8.1 family of products but which are not yet reflected in the PDF specification. This guide also contains implementation notes specific to Acrobat 8.1.

The PDF specification is currently represented by the following documents:

PDF Reference, sixth edition, version 1.7 ● PDF Redaction: Addendum to the PDF Reference, sixth edition, version 1.7 ● Errata for the PDF Reference, sixth edition, version 1.7 ● This guide reflects Adobe’s commitment to transferring responsibility of the PDF specification to the International Standards Organization (ISO).

Packaging of the PDF Specification ● Acrobat 8.1 packages the PDF Reference, sixth edition, version 1.7 in a PDF package that

also includes the following documents:

PDF Redaction: Addendum to the PDF Reference, sixth edition, version 1.7 ● Errata for the PDF Reference, sixth edition, version 1.7 ● Acrobat Implementation of the PDF Specification ● A PDF package is a single PDF file that enables a viewer application to describe and navigate between the files it contains. The name of this PDF package is pdf_reference.pdf.
