I have a simple XSD and XML file with some data that I want to bind and bring into my PDF form. I've created a Data Connection to the XSD, and then dragged the fields into my PDF from the Data View. When I open the PDF I don't get any data from my XML...it seems in order to being in the data I have to go to Forms -> Manage Form Data -> Import. Is there a way to have the PDF bring in the XML data automatically when it opens?
If you are using the Designer tool,
File -> Form Properties
Choose Preview Tab and and under Data File, choose the XML file with the data.
But if you expect the form to have been pre-populated with the data at runtime, the you need the server components render the form with the data file.
To render the form with the data, either you can create a process (OR) write code with APIs.
OK I see. Would anyone have a scripting solution to update this Form property on open, say based on the value of
a Text field on the form. Or possibly user initiating a change by entering a value into a text field and clicking a button.?
