Read external XML stream into a field‏


Former Community Member
Hello all -

I have been trying to get this working for a week now and still no luck. It seems like it's possible to find field values to external XML file, but Acrobat tries to parse the XML and be smart about it.

I have a custom form logic that needs to read an XML file from a URL and assign the stream to a form field that can later be accessed via FormField.rawValue.

The XML is rather basic - something like


I tried the xfa.connectionSet to no avail. I am now trying to bring in that value with SOAP, but have been reading that it might give prompts in Reader.

Can I simply read an external URL and assign the server response to a variable or a field ?

My apologies for the super-basic question!!

Thanks in advance!
