LoadXML external XML


Level 1

Hello everybody,

Question, How I can load the external xml file data in the form.

For examle I have owned a dropdown list box that contains the following give: A, B, C.

And then I have fields in my form: TextField1, TextField2,textField3.

By changing event dropdownlist box I must load the xml dynamically:

The XML file is loaded in the fields fill in the form:
for example:
textField1.rawValue = C.textForField1
textField2.rawValue = C.textForField2
textField3.rawValue = C.textForField3

Does anyone could give me an example how I shouldproceed?
Thank you in advance.

This sounds like a Flex question rather than Data Services. Try reposting on the Flex forums.

No, I need to do this with in pdf Ineractive Form.

I think it possible.

Here is my scipt // don't work


Projects.Page1.lstProjects::change - (JavaScript, client)

var xmlURL = ""+xfa.event.newText+".xml";

app.alert(xmlURL); //work, response :";

xfa.datasets.loadXML(xmlURL, false, false);


var projectXML=xfa.datasets.resolveNode("Project");

app.alert(projectXML); // don't work

var numberOfNodes = projectXML.nodes.length;

app.alert(numberOfNodes); //don't work


Here is the structure of myXML file (myXML-A.xml) :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE Project SYSTEM ".dtd/project.dtd">



     <Title>Title of my test project</Title>

     <DateReceived showFormat="YYYY-MM-DD" defaultFormat="YYYY-MM-DD">2011-06-30</DateReceived>

Sorry for the confusion. I thought you were working with a Flex form.

This forum is for Data Services, which is a server product with client APIs that are primarily Flex/ActionScript APIs.

I think the forum you want for PDF forms is this one:

There are other PDF-related forums here:
