Ebdedding sound into a PDF


Level 4

I would like to embed a sound file (WAV) into a dynamic PDF, which will then be used within my process.

Can I directly put the sound file onto the PDF as it is done using

Sound Tool in Acrobat? Is there special field like Image Field for embedding sound in Designer ES?

There is no sound tool available on the XFA forms so you unless you can create a sound object programmatically I do not see a way you can do this.

Is it possible to access database from a stand-alone PDF template.?

Please suggest me in this regard.


Level 4
Yes, you can define a data connection to connect to an OLEDB database or a web service.

Dear otk80,

Tnx for the response.

What I thought to develop is to write a JDBC connection in the Stan-alone PDF template and access database.

example: PDF is designed in such a way that it should have "USERNAME" , "PASSWORD" , "LOGIN BUTTON" , so that PDF stand-alone template on every desktop should access the database on entering the correct credentials.

is it possible..?

if possible , please provite the solution..?
