Take a look at the documentation for Doc.exportXFAData():
As you can see from the "F" in the Quickbar, the document would need "Forms
Rights" for this to work in Reader (
You need LiveCycle Reader Extensions to assign those rights.
Unless you can assign form rights to your document, this will not work in
So it sounds like I need LiveCycle reader extensions, not the ones in Acrobat Pro cause those are partial? If that is the case why does adobe make it so difficult for such a small task? I only need this product to develop one simple dynamic form.
They don't make it difficult, so much as expensive. They have powerful reasons for doing that; presumably there are enough people willing to pay.
So all I want to do is have the ability to place a button on my form. On the click event call a method to save the data as xml locally on the computer running the form in acrobat reader. Can anyone point me in a simple direction on how to do this or who to call/email/purchase? In my opinion Adobe doesn't make this as simple as it sounds. Thanks for any help much appreciated.
