WDA + AIF : Get modified PDF source (XSTRING) after user input

Hi guys,

I have this problem.

I have an online adobe interactive form (ZCI layout) with fillable and dynamic attributes sets to 'X'.

The interface is type "Dictionary Based" (not XML).

I've created a wda that calls standard ADS function modules (FP_JOB_OPEN, generated function modules, FB_JOB_CLOSE) to get the xtring of this Form. Then i bind the xstring returned by generated function module in order to show it in a view (that contains an AIF element). Now the user can insert values in input-ready fields.

When the user close the window, i'd like to read the whole (result) xstring of the pdf, filled with the user input.

But when i read the context attached of the pdf (called pdfsource) after user input, it contains only the pdf source, but not the user's input also. The result should be a merge of pdfsource and userdata, in order to save the xstring in a specific path (after conversion).

Is there a way to solve this problem ??

Thank a lot for your help and hints

Andrea

You aren't going to get any framework context processing of the form as long as you use a DDic based form. DDic based forms should only be used for non-interactive printing. For a use case like you describe you should use the XML based form interface.

Thanks a lot Thomas for your answer.

Now i know it's impossible use DDIC based forms to perform this kind of task.
