I have created a fillable form in Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional and have enabled user user rights so that people using reader can save a copy of the PDF.
On the form itself, there is a button that is of type submit that specifies a valid URL and submits the data as XDP.
Whilst working in Lifecycle Designer or Adobe Professional, I am able to submit the form and its content. Once I open the PDF in Adobe Reader 7.0, when I try to submit the form I always get this error "cannot handle content type text/html; charset=utf-8".
I have no idea what is the error and I am hoping some one can provide some guidance.
We are facing the same problem too. When users submit a PDF form by HTTP Post, the server sends a html answer back - but the Adobe Reader "cannot handle content-type: html". The problem seems to exist for years already. I found several forum and blog entries - but no solution so far. Adobe seems to ignore the problem...
I have the same problem too but only with Firefox. I get a response if IE was open on my machine, however if I had firefox open, I get an adobe reader error saying it could not process content of type "text/html utf-8". My form data is posted to servlet which sends a response object when the form is submitted. the form data is getting submitted but the message says it was not submitted and it could not process. Any solutions? appreciate your help.
