Xfa.form.export xml into field

Avatar

Level 2

Hello i have a question about how to export xml into fields, because i cant find a way to do it, is it possible?

 

i know how to export our pdf into xml, by using 

xfa.host.exportData("", 0);

but how to export it on textfield, for example i have textField named with "xmlfield".

 

what should i do, ..xml.field.rawValue = ?? or xfa.host.exportData("..xmlfield", 0); its not working

Thanks in advance.

I think what you want to do is the saveXML() function:

hello, that method is good, but how about in case i have xslt and i want the xml converted into xslt that i already connected on Data Connection, so the result xml will be XML with xslt conversion? thnaks

Not sure I understand your use case... An XML Schema Data Connection can be set to transform in- and out-going data via XSLT files. The saveXML() takes the currently active XML below the element you selected (here it is from the top level). It will NOT perform transformations - these happened either when the data connection loaded the data or will hapen when the form gets serialized (saved or submitted). Unless someone else on this forum knows more details, I would assume that this cannot be done.

You can store your XSLT stylesheet within the XML source and use it to transform the xml data with the applyXSL() method before writing it into the text field.

Just use the saveXML() method.

 

Textfield.rawValue = xfa.data.saveXML("pretty");
