This project is for the development of a Widget, similar to the concept in Yahoo widgets. Technically, I am not concerned about the language used. I would prefer to have a unique driver, or engine, that is not tying the user into any particular provider such as Yahoo.
The reason I want this in a widget and not a via Adobe reader is for copyright, ease-of-use and transportability purposes
. Initially, the widget shows the first page of the PDF (default size about 12cm x 16cm)
. The widget will allow a user to enter a keyword
. The keyword will be searched for in the PDF file
. When the keyword is found, the whole page from the PDF is displayed in the widget window with the keyword highlighted
. Next and previous panels will allow the user to navigate for multiple occurrences of the keyword.
. Widget can be customized for opacity, size and colour
. Text must reduce in proportion to widget window size
. The text cannot be copied(cut and paste) or printed
Note - the PDF file will probably be located in a protected URL. However, I want to be able to specify the location of the file in a setup procedure that is not available to end-users. Also, please allow for a widget title equal to the file name (without extension) eg 'My Technical [url removed, login to view]' will be shown as 'My Technical Book'.
Please ask if further information is required
