Yes you need to Reader Enable the form to do client side Web Services. Those Web Services will not work in the Guide. You can do a server side Web Service call and that technique will not require Reader Extensions, but you will do a round trip to the server each time the service is run.
The Form Guide cannot do the web service on its own (without modifying the Flex code underneath). The PDF that is created behind the Guide can have a server side WS call that can be used to populate the PDF dropdowns which in turn will populate the Guide. The Web Service is coded in the XDP template and is setup to run server side. The activation of the WEb Srevice must be done on an event that is shared between the guide and the PDF (i.e. a button click).
We have tried this but nothing happens.
We have made a data connection to a wsdl. We have binded this to a drop down via the Dynamic Properties. We have tried activating it via various events (initialize, click) using xfa.connectionSet.DataConnectionName.execute(0);
I have even tried to drag the data connection onto the form to test that way.
Everywhere we select run at server.
But nothing happens - neither in form nor form guides.
I can't see anything in any logs.
If we set it to run on client we get the error message from reader (no reader extensions).
What would be next step to find out what is happening? Are we missing a configuration somewhere?
