You could make a short lived process that returns the first form. After printing, it submits to another process or the same process with a parameter indicating it is the first submission. It returns the second form. Repeat until all your forms have been handled.

I wrote an ant script for creating my components for me. It was still tedius to deploy them over and over in Workbench. I wrote the java app below (much of the setup is from sample files in help). I configured my Java project in my IDE to use this file as what runs and to run my ant task to build the component before running. So I can just change code, hit the quick key for run and my new code is deployed on the server to test.import com.adobe.idp.Document;import com.adobe.idp.dsc.clientsdk.Serv...

The path would have to be as seen from the server, not how it would be seen from your local machine running Workbench. You would either need to copy it to the server or copy to a shared network drive that can be seen by both your local machine and the server. The second one would be easier to keep track of if you used the same network drive letter on both machines.To make your process available as a Webservice, you just have to have SOAP checked in the settings on the big green arrow put at the ...

There are Java API for those services. If you try to import any classes to use the APIs and get errors, don't add the JARs. In component.xml, after .. add this for reader extensions. com.adobe.livecycle.readerextensions.client You do not need to pass in properties to the creation of the client factory. ServiceClientFactory serviceFactory = ServiceClientFactory.createInstance(); ReaderExtensionsServiceClient reClient = new ReaderExtensionsServiceClient(serviceFactory);... outDoc = reClient.apply...

Is this in a custom component? I am wondering since the Exception says not found in namespace. If so, try using import-packages in component.xml instead of class-path and actually adding the jar. Example: org.apache.commons.codec

Workbench is the tool to write a process. Wouldn't your end user be in Workspace?If these scripts can be run from the server, then you could wrap them with a process that uses an execute script step:Runtime.getRuntime().exec("something.bat");You could then call that process as a webservice from a form when the user clicks the check box.

To use a loop, the items must be arrays. Adding complexity to your situation is related items from a data perspective being spread across pages and subforms for layout. If you create a schema for your data and create a data connection based on that schema, then bind your fields to the schema, you can separate data reference out from layout. It will then make it much easier to loop on the data yet still have your layout as is.

If you put a field in the Master Page at the top, it will be on every page. If you create a schema for the form's data, create a data connection from that schema, bind the text field in the master page to a ProductName field in the data connection, changing product name on any page will change it on all pages.You can also put script in the change event to copy the value to the other pages. The above method is better.

You probably will need to create a custom approval container.If your button is submitting the form, I think you are supposed to be able to get the action in a preSubmit event. I have had issues with that though.

If already automatic, in what event are you setting the access to open.You can also put script in the initialize event to lock the fields based on some value in the form. For example, you can create a hidden form field called locked and set it to true when the submit button is clicked. In the initialize event, lock all the fields if the locked check box is checke...

If you have both Reader and Pro on the same machine, it will cause problems.James Houghtaling, is there any reason you could not have looked at Paul's response, decided you don't have Reader Extension server, don't want to buy it and asked "How do I Reader Extend the form in Acrobat?".

Don makes a good point. I was probably thinking something had to be done in Execute Script and Sunil didn't want to learn Java to do the other things. But if there is already a learning curve, you might as well pick the one that is more efficient.

I figured it out. Well, I stopped the error and have a theory as to why. My custom component uses Reader Extensions. I would get an error about not finding the classes unless I included the jar in the component.xml classpath. That would seem how most of the custom component samples I find do it. I found some blog entires referring to using instead of for other errors. So I removed all the jars and the classpath. I added this: org.apache.commons.codec org.apache.commons.codec.binary com.adobe....

Since no has replied, this might help: I know you can open a URL in JavaScript. Maybe put that in the click event.

I meant to say change event per what your example was. I guess it is an intersting bit of info that rawValue will work in the change event of a checkbox. I'll stick to using xfa.event.newText to be consistent and ensure someone looking at my code to apply to something else doesn't have a problem.

You need to use xfa.event.newText in the calculate event. rawValue will give the old value.

"Is there any way I can achieve directly using bindings since we are trying to minimize javascript that changes the layout of the form?"Yes. Have you created a Schema, data connection to it and bound your form elements? If you bind two elements to the same item in the data connection, when you change one, the other changes.

Drop box is blocked for me.rawValue is not changed yet in the change event. You need to use xfa.event.newText.The global variable thing seems a waste to me. Can't you just reference the rawValue of each check box in the calculate event of the text field?

When you say binding, do you mean an array index? Have you created an XML Schema? The first step i perform when creating a form is to create an XML Schema, create a Data Connection in the form with that Schema and bind all my form elements to their corresponding data items. I don't understand what it is that is going wrong for you, but binding to a schema gives you control over what gets exported and imported.

It also works on my system to add a blank item at Design time. Maybe it is a difference in the Acrobat version that the blank item is removed. I would try removing the blank item at design time and adding in the initialize event to see if it fixes it on the users system.

I don't hink you will be able to merge them as form based PDFs. Most if not all third party libraries for PDFs don't handle them. Maybe install Acrobat Pro on a server, set it up somehow to print to PDF to use that the 'flatten' the form into a non-interactive one that third party tools can deal with. We own the LiveCycle a server products that can flatten them so it is just theory on my part.

If the exported XML is the same, I doubt adding a schema will help other than it may make the file growth smaller. I am thinking the extra data after the EOF is the form data, multiple saves, save multiple copies and opening in Acrobat combines it all together. It is just a theory though.
