Did not find a solution to programatically convert dynamic PDF form to static PDF form.An alternative way is to keep 2 sets of forms: XDP and dynamic PDF form.User fills in dynamic PDF form. At the time you need to use static PDF,you can extract the data from dynamic PDF and then re-render with XDP form to static PDF form by setting appropriate PDFFormRenderSpec.

Is LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 LiveCycle ES2 or ES1?

Hi,I am confused with all the LiveCycle release conventions.Is LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 LiveCycle ES2 or ES1?I am using Designer ES8.2. I manually added some PDF metadata to XDP form in the XML Source tab. After the XDP form gets redendered to either static XFA PDF or dynamic XFA PDF, the PDF metadata I added manually is lost. I was told there is a known defect with LiveCycle ES1 and it has been fixed in ES2. So, wondering whether ES 8.2 is ES1 or ES2?Thanks!lcfun

Hi Steve, Thank you for the reply. I looked into the API and don't think it will fit my needs. The form I am refering will be used as "template" which will allow user to fill in at runtime. In Designer, we can either save such form as XDP or Dynamic PDF form. In my case, I want to have both types of the same form for different usage. Right now all my forms are created as XDP. Instead of saving them to Dynamic PDF form one by one manually through Designer, is there a way to programically convert?...

You can try extrating the xml data from the XDP form and re-render the XDP form with the extracted xml data plus a static PDFFormRenderSpec. Make sure the PDFFormRenderSpec is set to RenderAtClient as false.

The document states: "It also does not work when you save as .XDP. "My form needs to be saved as .XDP.

That's the limitation of the 3rd party application. They only take static pdf forms. Whereas our forms are designed with dynamic xfa (fields will flow, subforms can have multiple copies depends on user's input, and some forms are dynamically generated with a subset of subforms based on user's choice, etc...). So, want to know ifthere is any lifecycle services available to convert programatically.If there is no way to do that and we have to convert all the templates to static pdf forms, will we l...

I can't flatten the pdf as it needs to be interactive when feeding into 3rd party's application. This 3rd party basically provides the functionilty for user to correct the form and eSign.

Is there a way to programatically convert dynamic pdf form to static pdf form?My scenarios is our forms are dynamic pdf forms which have growing fields and dynamically added subforms. Once the user filled in the forms, the pdfs need to be converted to static pdf forms to be further processed by a 3rd party. Thanks!
