    DDX PDF Dynamic Watermarking

    meowo
      Hihi
      I understand that DDX can watermark PDF documents using a string of static text but i am searching for a solution to implement dynamic watermarking on an existing PDF. Any idea how to approach this? beside using iTEXT?
      Thanks!

          What do you mean by "dynamic watermarking" ?

            Yes, the question is not clear to me either. You can generate DDX dynamically, so by extension the text can be dynamic. Is that what you are asking?

              sorry that my question is not clear.
              ok i have this ddx and cfm file, my question is how can watermark the downloader name dynamically on the generated pdf? How do i pass a variable from cfm to ddx in my case?

                The "ddxFile" value does not have to be a physical file. It can also be a variable containing a ddx string. You can use cfsavecontent to construct your ddx string. Using whatever variables you need. Then pass that variable to cfpdf:

                <cfsavecontent variable="ddxString">
                <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                <DDX ....>
                ... etcetera ...
                </DDX>
                </cfsavecontent>

                <cfif IsDDX(ddxString)>
                ....
                <cfpdf action="processDDX"
                ddxFile="#ddxString#"
                ....>
                </cfif>
