    Using the PM4ML API can we generate the editable pdf form from html and after that user should able to save the contents of the pdf form.

    Thanks

    Yes. Here is an example how to implement it in JSP scenario and to receive submitted data on the server side:

    If you prefer to use PD4ML API, you need to trigger pd4ml.generatePdfForms() API call to enable HTML forms to PDF forms conversion.

    Hi,

    Sorry to bring back this old topic, but i used the tutorial from pd4ml-html-css-pdf-tips-tricks-f7/pdf-forms-t422.html .

    My generated PDF form isn’t editable. The input are drawn in the PDF, but i can’t interact with the field. I get the same result with or without using the attributes generatePdfForms=”true” and enable=”true”.

    form.jsp
    <br /> <br /> <%@ taglib uri="http://pd4ml.com/tlds/pd4ml/2.6" prefix="pd4ml" %><%@page<br /> contentType="text/html; charset=ISO8859_1"%><pd4ml:transform<br /> screenWidth="300"<br /> pageFormat="A5"<br /> pageOrientation="landscape"<br /> pageInsets="100,100,100,100,points"<br /> enableImageSplit="false"<br /> generatePdfForms="true"<br /> enable="true"><br /> <html><br /> <head><br /> <title>pd4ml test</title><br /> <style type="text/css"><br /> body {<br /> color: #000000;<br /> background-color: #FFFFFF;<br /> font-family: Tahoma, "Sans-Serif";<br /> font-size: 10pt;<br /> }<br /> </style><br /> </head><br /> <body><br /> <br /> <form action="fdf.jsp" method=get name=test><br /> <table border=0><br /> <tr><br /> <td>Field 1:</td><td><input name=field1></td><br /> </tr><br /> <tr><br /> <td>Field 2:</td><td><input name=field2></td><br /> </tr><br /> <tr><br /> <td>Popup message:</td><td><input type=checkbox name=status value=ON></td><br /> </tr><br /> <tr><br /> <td>Result:</td><td><input name=result readonly></td><br /> </tr><br /> <tr><br /> <td> </td><td><input type=submit value=ADD></td><br /> </tr><br /> </table><br /> </form><br /> <br /> </body><br /> </html><br /> </pd4ml:transform><br /> <br />

    As I see you currently own PD4ML Std, however editable forms are supported by PD4ML Pro (and derived volume licenses). Please contact support pd4ml com for upgrade options.
