(mPDF ≥ 3.0)

SetDisplayPreferences – Defines the way the document shall be presented on the screen

void SetDisplayPreferences ( string $prefs ) Specify the way the document shall be presented on the screen when the PDF file is opened in Adobe Reader. When the user opens the finished file in Adobe Reader, these values will determine the initial appearance and layout. ## Parameters$prefs

This parameter takes a string containing any one or more of the possible values separated by any characters (e.g. comma, forward slash or space).

All the options start as false, and can only be set true by this command. Each setting is added to those previously set.

Values (case-sensitive)

• FullScreen
Full-screen mode, with no menu bar, window controls, or any other window visible
• HideMenubar
whether to hide the conforming reader’s menu bar when the document is active
• HideToolbar

• HideWindowUI
whether to hide user interface elements in the document’s window (such as scroll bars and navigation controls), leaving only the document’s contents displayed
• DisplayDocTitle
whether the window’s title bar should display the document title taken from the Title entry of the document information dictionary. If false, the title bar will instead display the name of the PDF file containing the document
• CenterWindow

• FitWindow
