Offline Interactive Form

Hi everyone,

I'm currently working on the UploadDownloadInteractiveForm for WD Java Example.

The Example from SDN is working successfully. What I don't understand is, can I only use a ready made PDF Document that is downloaded from the server like the TravelRequest.pdf?

I tried to create my own interactive form document, but in the implementation of the download view the TravelRequest.pdf is explicitly downloaded from the server. I thought I can edit the interactive form element with the built-in Adobe Lifecycle Designer and call it via the pdfSource Attribute.

How can I create my own interactive form with references to my Context in an offline scenario.

Thanks in advance,

    You can create your own pdf.

    Use updateDataInPdf mode while creating your pdf and

    place on the view the FileDownload element with the same binary source in your InteractiveForm pdfSource property and data property of FileDownload element.Place also Submit button on your pdf in LiveCycle Designer from WebDynpro ActiveX or WebDynpro Native Tab depending on your configuration.

    Do the same while uploading this pdf,but using FileUpload element and usePdf mode on your InteractiveForm element.

    The dataSource property must be the same in both cases.

    You can download pdf,fill it offline and then retrieve data by uploading and pressing submit button(you populate the context node that is mapped to your dataSource InteractiveForm property )

    This solution is working fine.
