In one of my application I need to read data from PDF documents.
I went through the QA Forums and found couple of discussions on it but wasn't very clear.
Any ideas as to
1) How can I copy the contents of PDF document to clipboard
2) Would I need any plug-in to open the pdf document in browser.
Thanks in advance for your time.
1)I would use TypeKeys()
2)You will need Acrobat Reader.
Hope this helps.
Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it.
Drop me an email at email@example.com and I can send you a couple of utilities.
You have two options with these. One will convert your pdf to HTML and the other will convert it to text.
I use the text utility pretty reglarly.
