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 ...

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

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...

If you're not using a data connection, you can always set the Data Binding to 'Use global data' in the Binding tab under your Object palette.Also, if I understand correctly, you would like the field to be editable on the first page but read only on all subsequent pages?? If that's the case and assuming your masterpage is named 'Page1' you can use this code in the ready:layout event:if (Page1.index==0) this.access="open";else this.access="protected";Kyle

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.

I ran into this issue on my site as well. I addressed it by forcing the PDF to download instead of open in the browser. You can force download with a few lines in an .htaccess file on an Apache webserver. Instead of making all of my PDF files download, I created a separate folder on the server just for the PDF files that don't display in the browser properly, and I put the .htaccess file in that folder (so it doesn't affect the rest of the site).Simply create a plain text file and name it .htacc...

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

Hi Jorge,I'm not sure what you mean by work independently from each other when it comes to "binding", Do you want the details to auto-populate or are you looking for a button to optionally populate the form.Bruce

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.

Thanks Kyle & Steve,Both methods work - although Kyle's solution seems probably a little more robust.Is there any way to do something similar with a Text object (i.e. not a Text field). If you create a Text object with a Floating field - then insert a very long string into the Floating field so that the length of the text exceeds the size of the Text object - it overflows similarly to my prior Table scenario. How would one get a Text object to resize itself to accommodate a variable length Float...

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.

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 there is any weirdness changing your check box with say tabbing to the filed and pressing the space bar, you might want to put the code in the change event. You may also need to use xfa.event.newText instead of rawValue just for the item on which the change event is firing.

I would just build the XML string. You need the header stuff, the style for Field 1, then rawValue from Field 1... then footer stuff.The reason they are on separate lines is the and tags. The code I posted strips the tag on from the first field and everything up to and including the tag from the second one. If modified to strip the paragraph tags too, they would be on one line. Of course, the style is in the paragraph tag so it would get lost. You could replace

They are set to display that way already and are not set for OS as it's source. In Object-Field-Locale they are set to 'Default Locale'-English United Kingdom.I might try setting the display pattern and e-mailing that to the Linux guy and see what happens.

I changed mine to protected and the Tooltips still don't come up. Maybe it has to do with different Acrobat versions or something.
