Issues with XFA to HTML5 Convertion in Livecycle ES4


Former Community Member

We are working on the feasibility check for rendering the dynamic XFA form within our application to enable end user to fill-in and save the form.  We used LiveCycle Designer ES4 for designing the forms. Everything works fine with the PC but when tried to load in iPad the form didn’t load at all.

We tried LiveCycle ES4 to convert the file to HTML5 to render in iPad. But it doesn’t look neat as PDF.  Listed below the issues we are facing.

1.       Data binding not working for few columns though it works perfectly in PDF version

2.      Tables are not aligned properly based on the number of rows, the following table/controls getting overlapped on the table.

3.      Submit button takes the page to WebAPI (used for Saving the entered form) url instead of saving the content. When invoked from the PDF it saves properly.

Please provide any standards/guidelines for designing the document which will be converted to HTML5 correctly.

Also, we would like to know the pricing of LiveCycle ES4 and is there any lightweight mode available which just does the XFA to HTML5 conversion. The LifeCycle ES4 comes with distributable license?
