How to render xdp as HTML form in HTML Workspace

By default xdp forms are rendered as PDF forms even in HTML workspace. So to render/submit existing xdp/pdf as HTML form in HTML Workspace, we need to add a new action profile called “HTML” which will include render process as “render new html form” and submit process as “submit new html form”. Below are some simple steps to configure this:

1. Goto Adobe Livecycle Workbench ES4, and open your existing process for which you want to change the configuration regarding render/submit processes.

2. Then goto “Presentation & data” section in Process Properties window and click “manage action profiles” as depicted in below snapshot.

3. Then in “manage action profile” dialog, create another action profile and name it as “HTML”. With this profile, configure render process as “render new html form” and submit process as “submit new html form”. Select this profile to be used and click OK button to save your changes. See below snapshot.

Note: Please note change your action profile from default to html in all “assign task” or “start point” activity in this current process.

4. That’s it, now you can just check-in and deploy your updated process. Now if you open this process (start point) in HTML Workspace, it will be render/submit as HTML form.
