Has anyone achieved the above successfully and could run through the steps, or point me to a how-to guide?
I want to display a list of items from the SharePoint list and allow the user to select one.
I'm using SharePoint 2010 and suspect that consuming the SOAP web service (http://dur-xxxx-02:12345/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?wsdl) from a WSDL data source in LiveCycle Designer is the way forward, but can't get it hooked up properly.
Eventually I want to create a new list item using the values that the user has entered, so if anyone has a guide on how to do that, I'd appreciate it, too!
Thanks for any help.
I couldn't get it working using the SharePoint default SOAP service.
I ended up writing bespoke web services to return items from the SharePoint lists, which I then connected to from the PDF form to bind the values to a drop down list.
To get the data back into SharePoint, I added a button to the form which would send it as an email (XML format), and then used an inbound-email-enabled document library in SharePoint to receive the attachment. Then implemented a custom Event Receiver on that document library which read in the XML and created a list item in my custom list.
This was working fine as a proof of concept but the decision was taken to not take it any further.
Hope this helps, and sorry if it's not what you were hoping for!
Can you please provide me code how you read the sharepoint list data and bind it with dropdown?? i want to implement the same thing.
Hi, I wrote my own web service using c# (System.Web.Services.WebService). This connects to the SharePoint site using the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client API and returns the items from the selected list as a List of strings. You can then publish this web service and reference it from the adobe form. Sorry I can't provide you with the actual code as this was written and paid for a client.
