Dynamic Adobe form generation

Hi,

My component's context is only known at runtime, i.e. it is being dynamically created at runtime.

Is it possible to bind such dynamic context to the fields in the Adobe forms. Even those Adobe form fields have to be dynamic i.e. I do not know what to show and where on the Adobe form until runtime.

Thanks

Kapil.

    Hi Kapil,

    As of now there is no methods available to generate ADOBE forms dynamically. You have to design your PDF form at design time.

    Refer my post for the same on webdynpro forum at following link:

    Thanks for message.

    Do you know if this will be possible in future releases?

    • Hi Kapil

      thanks for your explanation. It took me a while to find out what the status and plans are.

      It's great to hear that you want to move to the Interactive Forms solution. Unfortunately, there is currently no technical solution to your requirement. Any use of the Adobe technology at this point requires the use of a template created with the Adobe LiveCycle Designer.

      The requirement to generate a form on the fly without a template is currently being discussed by SAP and Adobe, but we're currently not in a position to say whether or when this will be developed.

      There is a group within SAP who has created a prototype of such an XFA conversion (XFA, XML Forms Architecture, being Adobe's specification for forms).

      Theoretically, anyone familiar with XFA (spec availabe on Adobe website) could build something like that, but it would be a lot of development.

      Kind regards,

      Markus
