No Controls is displaying in PDF form view

Hi Experts,

I am new to the Interactive Forms. I did a simple example, by creating a single view and added InteractiveForm as a child. Within this view I have create a simple context structure as

Context

-->TestNode (1..1)

--->FirstAttribute

--->SecondAttribute

--->PDFObject (binary)

and have drag drop these two attribtues(First Attribute,SecondAttribute) to the InteractiveForm. And changed the properties of interactive form mode to updateDataInPdf. No coding done in any of the controller.

After deploying this application a blank whit page is showing with only view name on top. And completely my system is being hanged from 5 to 10 minutes. Am I did any mistake in the above steps, causing the above problems.

Your help will be highly appreciable.

Thanks & Regards,

Chinna.

      Hi Chinna,

      You have to select the Submit button according to the Layout Type of the IF. If Layout Type is NATIVE then choose a Submit button from WDP Native library else if the layouttype is ACTIVEX choose the button from WDP ActiveX library.

      Hope this helps!!

    Hi Chinna,

    Try upgrading your Adobe reader version and this will resolve your issue. Also, if the layout property of the interactive form is set to ActiveX then you need to install ACF component for applications to work correctly.

    Hope this helps!!
