    disable toolbar for pdf's in browser?

    Hi all,

    I want to prevent saving/printing of some PDFs from my site viewers, so disable toolbar for PDFs when it was open in my Website in IE 7.0/8.0 ?

    Please provide solution to resolve it.

    Thanking you,

    If you open your PDF in Adobe Acrobat (not Adobe Reader) and go to File > Properties > Security, you can then set restrictions that will prevent people from copying, saving, printing or doing anything else with it. That works for all users, whether they are on IE7/8 with a plug-in, or other arrangements.

    I think that is the preference of the user.

    What you can do is to add #toolbar=0 to the end of the URL.

    For example,

    DOMAIN/FILE_NAME.pdf#toolbar=0

    Something you might want to do is:

    <embed src="MyFile.pdf#toolbar=0&scrollbar=0&navpanes=1" width="530" height="300"
