LiveCycle to AIR


Level 10

I have a LC Designer ES form, which I would like to develop as a standalone AIR application.

The form relates to statistics and contains tables, text fields, numeric fields. The form also contains various calculations, which populate fields.

I would like the AIR application to allow the user input data, which allows the application to carry out the various calculations and then chart/graph the results.

Ideally the AIR application would allow the user to save the xml data and allow them to re-import it back in to the AIR application. Also I would like the AIR application to export/print the data (preferably to PDF), including graphs and addition text fields (warnings, conditions, etc).

Is there an easy way to transfer the LC form over to AIR, maybe as a template?

Or do I have to start from scratch in AIR?

I am considering an Aptana Studio Pro AJAX environment with the AIR plug-in.

Any advice and suggestions gratefully received.

Today there is no such developer workflow between Designer and Flex/AIR.

Having said that, you can build Flex/AIR applications that render a PDF form or a Form Guide. Workspace ES being the primary example. This does require Forms ES for form rendering on the server.
