Embed HTML Javascript Code into the PDF

Question

I have a HTML JavaScript below,

<!DOCTYPE html "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"    
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
 <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
   <head>
     <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
     <title>Google Maps JavaScript API Example</title>
     <script src="http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&amp;v=2&amp;
	 key=abcdefg&sensor=true_or_false"
	 type="text/javascript"></script>
     <script type="text/javascript">
      function initialize() {
       if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
         var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map_canvas"));
         map.setCenter(new GLatLng(37.4419, -122.1419), 13);
         map.setUIToDefault();
       }
     }
      </script>
   </head>
   <body onload="initialize()" onunload="GUnload()">
     <div id="map_canvas" style="width: 500px; height: 300px"></div>
   </body>
 </html>

Is it possible to Embed this code in a PDF and get the same image as we get on a Webpage.

Answer

No, it is not possible to directly embed HTML/JavaScript code into a PDF file. You can of course add JavaScript code to PDF files on a page level via form fields or on a document level via actions, but not in the page content directly. As for HTML, there is no support for this in PDF files.

I would recommend seeing if the Google Maps API has the ability to generate an image of the map and then add that image to the PDF.
