Hello everyone,

I'm currently working for a company as an Intern and they asked me to create a custom form panel (basicaly a window that pops up when you call a javascript script) that should be filled with fields for the user to fill. Once those fields are filled i'm supposed to create and XML file from those fields.

The problem is not about the XML file it's about creating the panel. Does anyone knows anything about it or is there any topic talking about it ? (I was not able to find any)

Thanks for your time and have a nice day !

Take a look at the app.execDialog() method in the JavaScript API document. It has sample code for a few different dialogs. PDFscripting has - as part of their paid for subscription service - a dialog editor: https://www.pdfscripting.com/members/AcroDialogs.cfm

This is not exactly what I want. What I want Is something the user can fill up without modifying the PDF. A custom window filled with fields and dropdown menus so they can select exactly what this PDF is about then everything filled in the panel is saved as XML.
