XFDF: Extended FDF file format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

XDP: An XML Data package created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

XML: File format that is similar to an Excel file that will contain all of the annotation information

How to Export Form Data

Importing Form Data


Form field data can be imported from either an FDF, XFDF, or XDP file into the current document. Any form data from any of the Form Field Types will be imported.

Note: Form data can only be imported into the exact same form as it was exported from meaning that both the field type and name have to be exactly the same in order for the data to be imported.

Comments can be imported using the following formats



FDF: File format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

XFDF: Extended FDF file format created by Adobe that is supported by most PDF applications

How to Reset Form Field Values


Note: "To perform this function see the specific documentation for your application for detailed instructions"

PDF Form JavaScript


In jPDFViewer when creating custom functions/actions for specific items such as form fields or buttons you will need to use JavaScript for the commands. JavaScript can perform calculations, button actions (adding images, submitting forms, or populating other fields), validate field input, and set field formatting, among many other things.

Note: jPDFViewer only supports Acroform (non-LiveCycle) JavaScript in PDF forms.

You will need to have advance knowledge in programming JavaScript in order to create the actions for the buttons. For additional details on how to use these functions, take a look at the tutorials and lessons on this site http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_intro.asp



jPDFViewer supports the following JavaScript commands for each of the below items.

Digital Signatures


jPDFViewer. Digital Signatures are a way of authenticating the contents of a document. A document with a valid signature is guaranteed not to have been changed since being signed.

Validate Digital Signatures : How to validate a digital signature

Validating Digital Signatures


jPDFViewer validates any digital signatures upon opening a document. jPDF Viewer will first check that the digital signatures in the document use valid certificates and that the document has not been changed. It will then check that the certificate used to issue the digital ID in the signature was issued by a trusted certificate authority.

Validating Digital Signatures


Depending on the results of the validation, jPDF Viewer will display one of three icons on the signature:



The signature validated correctly, that there were no changes made to the document, and that the issuing certificate authority is trusted.

?

The signature validated correctly, but there might be some problems, such as the digital ID being issued by a certificate authority that is not trusted.

X

There were problems validating the signature. The problems can include any changes to the document after the signature was applied.

Checking Additional Validation Details


  1. Using the Hand Tool hand.png click the signature that you wish to validate.

  2. This will display a dialog showing the Signature Validation Status

  3. Once complete, to close the dialog, click on Close  or press Esc on the keyboard


Glossary


A

Annotation: a note of explanation or comment added to a text or diagram.

Area: the amount of space inside the boundary of a flat (2-dimensional) object such as a square, triangle, or circle.

B

B&W: stands for black and white

Bookmark: a type of link with representative text in the navigation panel. Each bookmark in the navigation panel goes to a different view or page in the document.

C

Comments: notes associated with Annotations and Markups that communicate ideas or provide feedback.

D

Digital ID: an electronic form of identification used when signing documents that proves your identity. A digital ID usually contains your name and email address, the name of the organization that issued it, a serial number, and an expiration date. Digital IDs are used for certificate security and digital signatures.

E

Embedded Font: contains the entire font stored within the PDF document.

Embedded Subset Font: contains portions of the font stored within the PDF. This means that not every character available in the font will be available.

F

FDF: a text file format used by Adobe Acrobat. FDF files are used for text files exported from .PDF files. FDF files are smaller than .PDF files because they only contain the form field data, and not the entire form.

G

GIF: a lossless format for image files that supports both animated and static images.

H

HTML5: a W3C specification that defines the fifth major revision of the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). One of the major changes in HTML5 is in respect to how HTML addresses Web applications. Other new features in HTML5 include specific functions for embedding graphics, audio, video, and interactive documents.

Hyperlink: a link from a hypertext file or document to another location or file, typically activated by clicking on a highlighted word or image on the screen.

J

JavaScript: an object-oriented computer programming language commonly used to create interactive effects within web browsers.

JPEG: JPEG (usually pronounced JAY-pehg) is any graphic image file produced by using a JPEG standard.

L

Lossless Compression: a class of data compression algorithms that allows the original data to be perfectly reconstructed from the compressed data.

Lossy Compression: a class of data encoding methods that uses inexact approximations (or partial data discarding) to represent the content. These techniques are used to reduce data size for storage, handling, and transmitting content.

M

Metadata: a set of data that describes and gives information about other data within the PDF.

O

OCR: Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the mechanical or electronic conversion of images of typed or printed text into machine-encoded searchable text data.

P

PDF: Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format that provides an electronic image of text and/or graphics that looks like a printed document and can be viewed, printed, and electronically transmitted.

Perimeter: the distance around the boundary of a flat (2-dimensional) object such as a square, triangle, or circle.

PNG: a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression.

R

Redaction: a form of editing in which confidential information such as texts or images are removed (redacted) to prepare a document for final publication.

S

Sane: Scanner Access Now Easy (SANE) is an application programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, handheld scanner, video- and still-cameras, frame grabbers, etc.). The SANE API is public domain and its discussion and development is open to everybody.

T

TIFF: a common format for exchanging raster graphics (bitmap) images between application programs, including those used for scanner images. A TIFF file can be identified as a file with a ".tiff" or ".tif" file name suffix.

TWAIN: TWAIN is an applications programming interface (API) and communications protocol that regulates communication between software and digital imaging devices, such as image scanners and digital cameras. TWAIN is not a hardware-level protocol; it requires a driver called Data Source for each device.

W

WIA: Windows Image Acquisition (WIA; sometimes also called Windows Imaging Architecture) is a proprietary Microsoft driver model and application programming interface (API) for Microsoft Windows Me and later Windows operating systems that enables graphics software to communicate with imaging hardware such as scanners, digital cameras and Digital Video-equipment.

X

XFDF: an XML-based file format for representing form data and annotations that are contained in a PDF form. XFDF helps keep your data secure. Therefore when opening an XFDF file in Adobe Reader, you may need to trust the site transferring the data.

XML: Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format which is both human-readable and machine-readable.
