Adding a pdf using webdynpro...

Hello,

I am using a portal, where I can see some webdynpro application already developed. When I click on 1 application, it opens up a pdf file. I want to know how to add a pdf file using webdynpro ?

I also checked the application using NWDS, but don't know where exactly they have placed the pdf file.

Please help.

    Hi,

    PDF in NWDS application is embeded as a UI element "Interactive Form". To see the PDF you need to open the view of the application and in outline right click on Interactive Form UI element and select edit.

    To check webdynpro application in portal which are uploaded as par file you need to have java developer role. Else you can only see the list of deployed application.

      Hi Aishwarya Sharma,

      I searched in the portal, the users are having a role and inside that the webdynpro iView is there. When user click that iView, the pdf opens up. Then I searched that webynpro application in NWDS.

      In NWDS, under that one Component is there for that particular application. Now, under that, 1 View is present. When I Opened that View, I just see RootUIElementContainer and under this IFrame. When I clicked on IFrame -> Properties, I see User_manual.pdf in Source field.

      Now tell me, where is this coming from and how to change this pdf ?

      Also , how to create such a webdynpro application for adding a new pdf file ?

    Hi Nikesh,

    Check the source property of the IFrame UI element, it must be pointing to an attribute.

    Hi Nikesh,

    the PDF could either be in the mimes folder..

    or must be coded somewhere...

      Hi Nikesh,

      In Web Dynpro you have Interactive Form UI which you can add in your View.

      You Need Adobe LiveCycle Designer installed on your machine with Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 onwards.

      If you have these already installed then you can right click on Interactive Form UI and select Edit.

      Now you can do all Formatting and Data mapping with your PDF.

      And one more thing, you need to have Adobe Document Service on server which you'll be using for deployment.

      You can look for lots of tutorials available on SDN for Interactive Form.

      Regards,

      Vivek
