Hi again Jasmin,<br /><br />Thanks for your reply<br /><br />I have tried your suggestion - but I am not sure that it works as it should.<br /><br />My form that goes outside workspace is set to submit XDP with the (PDF including signature) hceck box clicked), but when I take a look at the data in the variable (xfaform) I have assigned the Output Form Data to I only see a reference to a pdf and not the pdf it self.<br /><br />Like this:<br />>...<br /><pdf xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/xdp/pdf/" href="../../../../../Documents and Settings/myUser/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files/Content.Outlook/NULP6PVY/MyForm.pdf"/><br />...<<br /><br />How can I get hold of the entire signed PDF document and the data?<br /><br />Thanks in advance<br /><br />Sincerely<br />Kim
No there should be no difference, that is my conclusion as well, however apparently there is a difference...
I am completing the task from outside workspace yes. It is done from an email, so I will need some of the functionality to make sure that the form is not submitted more than once (I believe to remember that this is ensured when using the process fields). I could ensure this by making my own script on the form.
Do you by the way know if it is possible to submit an entire PDF to a web service directly?
I have been busy finishing of the project without this functionality, but now I have finished and have to implement the above scenario.
In doing this I still have the problem that I only get a reference to the PDF and not the raw PDF inside the XDP.
I have tried to change my Complete Task process to also be able to handle a PDF instead of just XDP files, but the results from the completeTask (Task Notification) are not good (the task is never completed - even though that the completeService output is "Success".
I cannot find any documentation for the completeTask-service in the help for Workbench, so that is a dead end.
In short, I still need to be able to grab the signed PDF from outside workspace and insert it back in to the original process, but I have no idea where to go from here.
When I submit XDP files from outside WS the result after completeTask is "Successfully completed task: 5509", I am just wondering what the difference between this and the "Success" from the above result is?
I have set it to be an xfaForm for both input and output.
I have investigated the problem with "only" getting the reference for the pdf and not the entire chunk-tag.
In the regular submitbuttons click event there is some autogenerated code, and I guess that the following call to the function submitForm() is the reason to why there is no raw pdf in the xdp that is submitted:
I have tried giving an extra parameter for the function:
but this apparantly does not work (only works for "FDF" file types.
However when I click a normal Submit button the raw pdf is embedded in the xdp (if it is clicked in the properties). So I am wondering which function is used for submitting with a normal submit button?
Don't hesitate to ask me to elaborate if the above seems to be impossible to understand 😉
