Import XML data with Adobe Reader


Level 1


I work in a dynamic pdf form with livecycle ES4 designer and I would use the xfa.host.importData () function to import XML data in my form.

The problem is that the button only works in Adobe Acrobat Pro, and when I use it in Adobe reader, he told me that the security settings prohibit access to the property or the method.

How can I activate the protection settings?

Hi Bruno,

I actually had this same problem with a client of mine. Unfortunately, the functionality is just not provided in Adobe Reader and it cannot be overridden. We used a large amount of JavaScript in the form that we created and tried a move around the functionality of Reader without any avail.
