Data Binding in Adobe


How can I bind the data from SQL Server DB to Adobe

interactive form?

I need to see data from DB in my PDF file and

to insert data to my DB through PFD file fields.

I tried to do this in palette binding and have created connection

with my SQL Server DB but in output I dont see nothing.

We are working with NW 2004S SP 9,

Livecycle designer 7.1

    hi Michael,

    <b>IN GENERAL</b>

    all the UI elements in the adobe form are generally connected to your web-dynpro Context.

    whatever you type in the online adobe form is reflected in the respective context attributes of the dynpro Context of the view where "ur Interactive form UI element is".

    that means you can yourself fill the contents of ur interactive form by working on the get/set methods of the context attributes.

    <b>UR CASE</b>

    to show data from Database or to send data to Database u need to create FORMS

    (the usual dynpro layouts to get/show data from database)

    In normal Dynpro programming Scenario, u create UI elements for the form on the Layout of the view.

    The Adobe forms are not much different.

    Now the UI elements are in the PDF form rather than the view->layout

    But still they are bound to the Context of the view.

    here also the binding with Context has to be created.

    the advantage of using adobe interactive forms is that forms can be filled offline and later uploaded to the system.

    so when you upload the form the Contents of the UI elements are obtained in the Context attributes.

    then u can send them to database as a record.

    hope this helps.

    with regards,
