Hi all,



I have a process in which I submit (copy) an entire PDF file with digital signature to a watched folder and this kicks of the process.



Now as the first step I would like to present the PDF for the user in a task assignment. The PDF opens fine but nothing happens when I click the buttons Accept/Reject buttons in WS. How can I fix this problem



Sincerely

Kim

Have you added the process fields object as well as the formbridge object to the form design?

Yes I have done both.



It seems weird, because if I use list-mode and just single click on a line - I can click on the Accept/Reject button and everything works fine, however if I double click on the line and the form opens, the buttons does not react when I click them.

Are you using a document form variable or an xfaForm var?

I am using a document variable (the reason why I do this is to show the user that a form has been digitally signed), so I can not re-render it with the data from the incoming PDF.

Set the submit button URL (on the XDP) to submit to http://
:/workspace-server/submit.

Hi Jasmin,



I am not sure what I should do?



I get a pdf as input for my process - and I want just to show this pdf for the user without him doing anything on the signatures.



Should I change the submit on this PDF or should I do something else?

Change the submit on the PDF using Form Designer. The submit button still need to know where to submit to.

I will try to do that - however the PDF is already going to be submitted somewhere else...Do you mean the submit button that is added by the Process fields or just a regular submit button?

What do yo mean with "the PDF is already going to be submitted somewhere else".



In order to submit a form from Workspace, you need a submit button. That submit button need to submit back to LC. If the form is rendered from an XDP using a render service, it'll put the URL to LC automatically. If you create the PDF manually, you need to tell it where to submit back. This applies whether you use a single submit button or the button from the Process Fields.
