Creating and Using Layers (OCGs) with Acrobat JavaScript

By Thom ParkerMar 12, 2006

In Acrobat, the term 'Layers' refers to Optional Content Groups (OCGs). OCGs are a mechanism for selectively controlling the visibility of page content. In Acrobat 7 (Professional and Standard) it is possible to both create and control these content layers through JavaScript, giving the document developer a totally new ability to use dynamic content purely through scripting tools already available in Acrobat Professional. This is not another kind of form field or annotation, but true page content. OCGs are used to create multilayer pages (like a stack of transparencies), for everything from multi-language documents, layered views for architectural plans, to animated displays.
