Hello All,

My question is regarding an asp application I have which populates a form by using xfdf , but the feature about opening a pdf file in a new browser tab where the pdf form gets populated with xml information stop working.

not sure if XFDF is still supported by Edge, Chrome and firefox browsers, because I have tested and it only works for IE11.

Any feedback on this question would be very appreciated, thanks in advance.

greets,

You should ask those questions on the forums of those browsers – since they no longer support the embedding of Acrobat/Reader ☹.

Are you sure it's those browsers that's loading the data into the PDF form? or when it works, is the browser loading the Acrobat add-in, which loads the data?

Not sure if this has something to do about  the stop of support for NPAPI plugins on the browsers I mentioned except for IE11.

Are you aware that none of these browsers use ANY Adobe product or tech to show PDF? This is why it’s no good asking here.

I think you have the answer. It's generally a bad idea to rely on the browser for proper PDF handling. There's a lot of history here with PDF and browsers, and none of it ever really worked out.  Best to do PDF stuff in PDF viewers.
