Digital signatures export as ns dataNode in my XML file

Oct 6, 2011 12:15 PM

Tags: #xml_export #data_node #compile_form

I created a simple form and need to copile responses as they are returned.  I have been able to set it up and it works beautifully except for the electronic signature fields.  There are two signature fields.  There are two signature fields.  When I export the files as
XML and open it up in Excel, there are three records for each file.  The signature field is labeled "ns1:  dataNode"; for two of the records, the column reads "dataGroup"; the third is empty.  I am currently using LiveCycle Designer ES2 and Acrobat X Pro.  What I would like in my Excel file is an indicator of whether or not there is an electronic signature present in each of the two signature fields.  Can someone help?

 

Thank you,

    Unlike data capture fields, such as text fields, numeric fields and check boxes, Signature fields do not support "data binding".  This means that when the data is exported, the signature field contents (the signature itself) is not included in the XML data.

     

    If you want some indication in your data that a signature was applied, you could write some JavaScript that gets executed on the "Post Sign" event of the Signature Field.  This script would set a value in a field (this field could be hidden), then in the data you could check for the value to se if the signature field had been signed.

    The script is very simple.  Here is the graphic of a very simple sample...
