I want my air application to communicate with the pdf file that it is hosting.
With acroforms it is possible to use hostContainer method but in LC forms I didn't manage to use it.
Anybody has an idea?
I am interested in this too. Last I heard (which was a very long time ago when AIR was still Apollo) interactive PDFs couldn't be hosted in an AIR app (I think the reason was that AIR only had a very simple PDF render engine).
I just found this article which seems to contradict my earlier statement (about interactive PDFs in AIR apps).
You can easily render interactive pdf form in air application using htmlLoader :
What I'm looking for is how to communicate between air app. and my LC pdf form that it hosts, it is working with hostContainer method in case I'm using acroform but I don't know if it possible with LC PDF form.
Trying dragging and dropping the "Adobe LiveCycle Form Bridge" object from the Custom tab in the Object library.
I assume this should work as it creates a hostContainer and is the same bridge used for Form Guides or HTML forms (I use Form Guides and the HTML template used to render them calls the hostContainer).
when using form bridge, how do I apply a message received from the container to field into pdf?
I haven't used the bridge directly (I use it indirectly when it is embedded into a LiveCycle PDF document rendered by Forms ES and called from a Form Guide) but I would assume that it should work exactly the same as calling an AcroForm's hostContainer.
