and fills out a PDF based form system
|IGeneralFormRequestManager interface||V4.30/ 7 Sep 2011|
The IGeneralFormRequestManager interface provides all the necessary tools to produce a filled out PDF form or a XML infoset of type generalFormRequest_430.xsd.
Firstly, an appropriate data file must be loaded, where the following types are suitable:
After all data is preset -primarily the semantically well-known addresses and structures- a data finalization and visualization step is run, where the PDF form with the preset data is presented to the user using Acrobat Reader. This finalization is done under the assumption, that any missing and needed variable is inserted/modified by the user directly. As a consequence there is no paradigm of "completeness" and "100% preset capability" requested in this form management. After the user-driven review and modification process the final PDF form and/or XML infoset is produced by the GetPDF and/or GetXML methods, respectively.
Due to the processing attributes "storno" and "copy" a previously generated and sent XML infoset can be canceled or a copy can be produced (cf. Notes about processing attributes).
