Creating new PDF's from the input of a form - Adobe LiveCycle 01-02-2010
I posted a similar message to this one about 3 months ago. I had to work on other projects and also learn more about the process to make this happen. In a nutshell, here's what I'm trying to accomplish:User downloads form from our website and fills it in. (dynamic form is complete)User clicks "Submit Form" button on form and XML data is sent to our server. (I'm currently learning about MySQL and PHP, not my forte)PHP script on server receives XML and adds input (field data) to database. Once tha...

Re: Dynamic XML PDF not importing fields - Adobe LiveCycle 29-01-2010
All,I am a bystander watching this thread, as creating a new pdf from all these different files is of great interest to me. I am interested in more than the question at hand.Nessmuk, I have been able to get to the point of viewing your file in preview mode, but it looks just like your form in Design View. As I understand it, the XSL file should define how the form appears in preview. How does the XSL file connect to the pdf?Thanks, and I look forward to seeing this thread being resolved.Graham

Re: Schemes to limit document submissions - Adobe LiveCycle 23-10-2009
No, we are going with a scheme of making the process open to many and charging a little for each use. Sort of like selling 1,000,000 of something for $1 rather than 1000 of something for $100.This is because our bread and butter clientele leans heavily toward people who are being paid very little for what they do or on a volunteer basis. If they adopt this workflow, then it will migrate to other places and may well become the mandatory method for filing in this particular genre (our biggest wish...

Re: Schemes to limit document submissions - Adobe LiveCycle 23-10-2009
The final product from the end user's perspective is a rash of forms for legal filings. By filling out one form (our product) and submitting the completed form to our business server, the end user will ultimately receive a number of legal forms, filled out and ready for filing, complete with extra exhibits if necessary.If we decide to include the final legal forms as hidden subforms within the master document whereas access to them is granted via this validation scheme, we need to make sure that...

>>For this technique to work the passcode woudl have to be baked into the PDF before the user opened it. Now I have something to compare against.<>What is it you are trying to protect ....access to the PDFs?<

Re: PDF Security... yet another inquiry - Adobe LiveCycle 23-10-2009
Steve, yes thank you for your reply.Paul: "If you put an Open password on the PDF then when a user tries to open the file in Designer they will be required to enter the password. Is this sufficient?"It would be sufficient if it actually secures the document. That is what I'm writing about. There seem to be a lot of "utilities" (read: hacks) which disable the security of PDFs to varying degrees. I'm trying to ascertain if the efficacy of the built in security is sufficient.Graham

Re: PDF Security... yet another inquiry - Adobe LiveCycle 23-10-2009
DJ,I admit "infrastructure" is a less than useful term. What I mean is the editable forms and subforms accessed through LC. How this form is structured and the underlying Javascript is the intellectual property I'd like to make sure stays secure, if possible.Graham

PDF Security... yet another inquiry - Adobe LiveCycle 23-10-2009
I'm not so much concerned with the content of the form I'm creating but with the underlying javascript used in creating the dynamic functionality of this product.I've been researching security of PDF's, and I'm a bit worried. PDF Locker, Elcomsoft PDF Recovery Software, code obfuscators.... the list of possibilities goes on and on.It seems that my intellectual property is certainly going to be easy-pickin's for anyone with a modicum of software knowledge and more than passive curiosity.It also s...
