I'm creating fillable forms, in Adobe Acrobat Pro 9, for medical professionals who are having their patients fill them out on iPads using the PDF Expert app. Is there a way to make the forms iPad aware?
For example, when you enter an event in your iPad or iPhone calander there's that wheel where you can choose the date. I want that wheel to show up when patients are filling out a date on their forms.
I know that you can alter the PDF form to extend to Reader so is there a way to do something similar with PDF Expert? Or is that not a possiblity yet?
That would require PDF Expert to use that type of interface to set the value of fields, but that seems unlikely to ever happen. Acroforms do not have a specialized date field type like XFA forms created in LiveCycle Designer do, so this would be problematic to implement.
Edit: corrected typo
There are a number of apps for the iPad/iPhone/eReaders/tablets that can process Acrobat forms but not LiveCycle Desiger forms. Adobe has Adobe Reader X for mobile.
There are links for develpers on that page.
Have you tried contacting the PDF Expert developers?
