Using RenderPDFForm to render an xdp form held in a variable

Avatar

Hi all,



I would like to know how I can render an xdp-form (held in a variable - I get it from the Content Services or filesystem) using RenderPDFForm.



As I see it I can't render the form if it is not in the repository, but this seems like an awkward limitation to me. Can this be true?



Thanks in advance



Sincerely

Kim Christensen

You can.



You would have to leave the form url blank, and pass the XDP template in the data parameter in a document variable.



If you wanted to have data in your XDP, you would have to set the data node of the XDP with it.

Jasmin,

Can u please explain this step, "If you wanted to have data in your XDP, you would have to set the data node of the XDP with it."

Actually, my problem is, I am trying to renderPDFForm providing the repository url of an xdp form but its throwing com.adobe.document.xmlform.RenderException.

Can u provide some insight on this exception?

Thanks and Regards,

Ambika
