XML editor with editable field

Hello

I'm reporting using xml publisher in PDF format...
is anyway to have PDF reports generated to have an editable field so that we can enter text here before printing?

It's like having a placeholder in the RTF which has no reference to the DB... not mapped to a specific xml data

is this possible and how?
thnx

Hello

If the element you want on the report does not come from data you want to put in * before * the document has been produced, then you have two options:
1 use a parameter on the report and who appear on the output (depending on the earlier suggestion on this thread)
2. Enter the value data (for example, through the lookup table, profile option, FDF, or something like that) so it's just an ordinary field.

If you want to put the value in the report * after * the report has been produced, then you must be able to change the output. The options in question are:
3. instead of PDF output, output RTF, you can open the document in Microsoft Word and add anything you want - of course you have to do it every time for all reports
4. as in 1, but use PDF and PDF writer
5. as in the use of suggestion of Tim an API or other software to write to the output PDF file - this can be automated, but again you would need to know what value to put where initially, so you should be better go back to options 1 or 2.

Kind regards

  • How can I create a PDF with editable fields?

    I have a problem with my Microsoft word at the normal address form. Customers who fill out the forms, complete their area prescribed in form, but some of them also change the original text of the form. I though it would be better if direct to a digital solution by which I can have all my PDF form, but the need to 'fill in the fields' remains a problem. Is there a way where I can create a pdf with editable fields form my clients to fill out the requested information? This solution will also allow my clients the advantage of not having to print forms but rather to complete on the computer. Help, please.

    It seems the comment by Bernd, this version 7 (Standard) did not have this

    the fact of functionality, but version 9 (Standard).

    See: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/matrix.html

    However, as I wrote, if you want users to be able to save the file after

    they filled, you will need version 9 (Pro).

    And Acrobat has an assistant who can pick up the fields that were created in Word

    and convert them into Acrobat form fields.

  • Acrobat PDF edition very slow to Po XI with many fields?

    I love software from The Adobe Acrobat pro XI but I'm having a real problem with speed with the edition of a PDF form.

    I constantly forms with more than 100 text fields. When I want to make a simple change to one side, or move it around, I have to wait like 3-4 seconds for each "change." I'm on a 16 GB 2.6 GHz i7 Macbook retina if my computer isn't the issue.

    Anyone know how I can speed things up a bit when editing?

    Rave, it's a stupid answer if Adobe seriously has designed a program in 'gap' between any part of an edit form field.

    If someone else has the same problem I am, I found a way around the serious slowness (or bad 'design') from Adobe.

    Uncheck the first 2 boxes:

    -Automatically caluclate field values

    -Automatically adjust tab order when editing fields

  • Interactive report with checkbox and editable field

    Hello

    For a project I'm working on, I need to create an interactive report in Apex 3.2 with the ability to select rows and change one of the columns in the report.
    To do this, I started by adding these two fields at the request of my IR selection:

    CB apex_item. CheckBox (1, product_number)

    and

    apex_item. Text (2, QTY_TO_ORDER) QTY_TO_ORDER

    CB is the files checkbox and QTY_TO_ORDER is the editable field.

    It worked like a charm and I had my two fields in the report.
    To process the values, I've added this page process, which currently must store only the "product number" and the "QTY_TO_ORDER" fields in a table.

    BEGIN
    BECAUSE me in 1.APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01. Count LOOP
    insert into mytmptable values (APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01 (i), APEX_APPLICATION. G_F02 (i));
    END LOOP;
    commit;
    end;

    However, this does not work as I want it to work. When I check the boxes of the two rows, it will store two numbers of good product lines, but it will take the field QTY_TO_ORDER two albums from the table, regardless of who those are checked. I was able to solve this problem, by adding a rownum in the query and using the rownum as the value for the checkbox control. Because I still need that the areas of product_number and qty_to order I made them two text fields.

    I changed my page process of:

    BEGIN
    BECAUSE me in 1.APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01. Count LOOP
    insert into mytmptable values (APEX_APPLICATION. G_F02 (APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01 (i)),
    APEX_APPLICATION. G_F03 (APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01 (i)));
    END LOOP;
    commit;
    end;

    This seemed to solve the problem, and I have now received the good values in the table, unless I used in the report to sort... As soon as I've sorted the report in a different way from that of rownum, I had bad values in the table. The reason is of course that my insert simply selects the nth line in the table, and my rownums are not dynamic.

    I found a lot of examples on the internet using "#ROWNUM #" in the selection, which is expected to spawn a rownum in the report. It seems to work in normal report, but in interactive reports, literal values "#ROWNUM #" appears.

    Is it possible to fix this?

    Hello

    Try with 3 fields:

    CB apex_item. CheckBox (1, product_number).
    apex_item. Text (2, QTY_TO_ORDER) QTY_TO_ORDER,.
    prod_no apex_item. Hidden (3, product_number)

    The hidden field should be view as a hidden column.

    Then your process can be:

    BEGIN
    BECAUSE me in 1.APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01. Count LOOP
    J in 1.APEX_APPLICATION. G_F03. Count LOOP
    IF APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01 (i) = APEX_APPLICATION. G_F03 (j)) THEN
    insert into mytmptable values (APEX_APPLICATION. G_F01 (i), APEX_APPLICATION. G_F02 (j));
    "exit";
    END IF;
    END LOOP;
    END LOOP;

    I don't want the text to highlight. Can anyone help me please with this. Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards

    S.A.Norton Stanley

    Hello

    Thank you. Overridding method drawFocus() and nothing doing, emphasis has been disabled on the fields and the white highlight was not. But once I reached the first or the last field of the white selection screen gets drawn again.  But the border I also assign the background of the field edit as shown below, and this solved my problem.

    Background bgNonEditable = BackgroundFactory.createSolidBackground(Color.LIGHTGRAY);
    textField.setBackground(bgNonEditable);
