    Change values in document form e.g. with form bridge

      Hello,

       

      I have the following problem: My pdf form must be signed. I submit a pdf via http post to the servlet which starts a process with the pdf as input. After some processing steps I want to show it in the workspace for further actions. As an input für the "Assign Task" I used the document form, which contains the form bridge. The workspace shows me the PDF and I can submit it. But I want to set some values in the pdf for showing.

       

      The cannot use the FormDataIntegrationClient because it change all values in the pdf and I lost the valid signature (refers only to some fields not all). I want to set some fields in the pdf without destroy the signature.

       

      When I read the comments in the designer for form bridge, it provides the possibility to change values inside the pdf, but I have no idea how I can do it.

       

      The Designer Comment:

      /*
          FormBridge provides a scripting API to access and change information in a PDF form.
          It supports actions such as getting and setting form data, getting a list
          of fields, email, and print just to name a few.

       

          Messages are sent to this script have the following format:
              [id][requestName][params...]
          where:
              id          is a number supplied by the requestor
              requestName is the command to perform (see: "FormBridge API command"s below)
              params      are the parameters for the command

       

      and so on.....

       

      How can I send these message to the PDF to change a value inside after signing?

       

      Did somebody else anything like this?
