Form Guide + PDF in AIR

Check this out: My colleague Trevor Ward, developer on the Form Guide Team, has just posted a very cool sample of an AIR app running a Form Guide complete with data and an embedded PDF on the LiveCycle Form Guide blog. Please keep in mind that it’s just a proof-of-concept but it should give you enough to go on to build your own solution if you’ve been wondering if/how this could be done.

    YAY!! I’ve been waiting a while for this.

    Can’t wait to fire it up and see it in action.

    Hi Stefan,

    We are very grateful for your helpful articles. Do you have any documentation/sample about how to publish form guides on web (out of workspace)?

    We need to publish server side prepopulated form guides on web and we couldn’t find any instructions about it..

    Thanks in advance!

    I’m going to interpret your question to mean that you want to render a pre-populated form guide, using LiveCycle, outside of Workspace.

    This can be done using the LiveCycle Web Service API, whereby you can trigger a process remotely (e.g. from a web page) and get a return which contains information you need to get the form guide + data to render to the client that made the call.
