renderPDFForm Service issue with XDP file

Avatar

Level 2

I've been trying to create a workflow that will Render a PDF file from an XDP file created in Designer and some XML that was used for the dataconnection in the form.  So far I can get the process to work with the same form if it is saved as a PDF, but the workflow times out if I run this against a XDP file...Any suggestions of what I may be missing???

Thanks!

Are you oicking the correct render service ....by default the render service will render a PDF form.

Which version of LC are you using?

Thanks Paul for responding...I'm using LiveCycle ES2 and just using the "basic" fields (Form, Form Data, and Rendered Form) in the renderPDFForm activity.

In the Task Manager start task in teh Presentation and Data section you can point to the XDP that you want to render as well as pick an Action profile . This shoudl be all you need to set to render an XDP as a PDF.

Can you post screen shots of your Presentation and data section as well as your Action Profile screen?

My process really isn't that complicated...  I'm still a bit new to this, but I believe to get the info you are looking for you would need an AssignTask activity and my process is just a Short-Lived process that just goes through a few steps:

1.  Reads the .XDP document from the file system

2.  Reads the .XML document from the file system

3.  Uses the renderPDFForm activity to put the .XDP and .XML together to come up with a new .PDF file

4.  Writes that .PDF file out to the file system

Fundamentally a pretty simple process - maybe not the most practical, but I'm working on the details of that later 🙂

Thanks!

Ah ...now I understand .....I thought you were routing the form through User steps.

Can you show me your RenderPDFForm properties in a screen shot?

Yeah pretty simple stuff...There really isn't much to show on with the properties - I just filled in the "Basic" fields of Form, Form Data, and Rendered Form and the rest of the fields are set to their default values.  Here is an image below:

And I assume that FileSysDocument is a var of type document and it contains the XDP that you want to render.

Do you get and errors in the system log?

You are looking at th ebasic options at the top right of the properties page there is a Basic and All button. Click on the All button to see all of the options that you can set.
