You can configure the forms to submit back just the XML data or the data as name value pairs....instead of the complete PDF.
How do we do that?
Just to clarify myself, I am not putting any button on PDF to invoking submit action from PDF. I am allowing user to upload the pdf and they click submit button on my aspx page.
Are you saying that when user submits the aspx page there is a wasy to retrieve the data in the form of XML or name/value pair on this aspx submit? if so please send me some pointers/examples or let me know how to do this? Is there any additonal tools/software that we will need to buy from adobe for this?
thanks for you time!
In that case you'll have to use the ProcessFormSubmission service that Livecycle:Forms ES suplies to extract the XML data structure from a XFA.Forms PDF.
You can put the submit button on the PDF and in doing that you can control what format to submit in when you define that submit button in designer.
