    Module: form-extraction

    Performs detection and extraction of form data (such as PDF AcroForm fields) in the document.

    When viewer is ready, this module sends a request to determine if the document in a viewing session has acroforms or may contain raster forms. If so, the module provides a modal dialog to cancel or attempt form extraction. The process to get results of the extraction can be cancelled once started. Users are notified of successful conversion and unsupported field types with appropriate popup messages. Errors, occurring during form extraction, are displayed in the same modal dialog, which starts the conversion.


    var FormExtraction = require('form-extraction.js');
    // a generic Viewer constructor
    function Viewer(opts) {
        var myFormExtraction = FormExtraction(this, {
            elem: document.getElementById('formExtraction')

    (require("form-extraction"))(viewerObj, options)

    Creates the form extraction module.
