frevvo fields to the acroform fields

The PDF mapping screen provides functionality to enable designers to map e-form fields to PDF fields. Mapping is performed a field at a time in the context of a PDF page. Mapping can be accomplished in two ways:

...

Non-mappable control types can be dragged, but you will not be able to drop it on any PDF field. The image shows the Allowance fields from the Live Formfrevvo/Flow mapped to the corresponding fields on the W - 4 pdf.

...

The PDF Mapping dialogue has an upper portion that names and describes the PDF field being mapped. Below this is a table that shows frevvo fields. The top row of the table shows any field that is already mapped to the PDF field. Below that is a scrollable table of candidate fields that may be selected for mapping. If there are no mappable fields in your form, you will see the mesage 'No frevvo fields mappable to this PDF field.' Only a single Live Form frevvo field may be mapped to a PDF field. Note that if field names or labels are too long to read in this view, hovering the cursor over the text will display a tooltip with the full name/label.

ActionDescription
more>> less<< linksUsed to hide and show more details about the PDF field being mapped, including Type, selectable values and the name of the field in the acroform. This information is useful when trouble shooting. Selecting more>> shows the details and changes the link to less<<. Selecting less<< hides the details.
Clear MappingClears the mapping (if any). Any selected radio button is cleared. Changes take place immediately.
Selection Radio ButtonsThe first column consists of radio buttons for each mapping choice. Click the radio button corresponding to the Live Form frevvo control to map it to the field in the pdf. Radios may not be de-selected. Live Form frevvo fields are unmapped using the clear button or by selecting another e-form field.
Index Edit BoxesFor repeating Live Form frevvo fields, the 1-based index is used to select the field to be mapped. The value must be ≥ 1. The default is 1. Changes take effect immediately upon tabbing/clicking off the the index field. The index field is disabled for non-repeating Live Form frevvo fields.
Search Text BoxUse this to search for mapping choices for the pdf field that was clicked. Entering filter text causes the possible mapping selections to change. Only those matching the filter text will be shown. If the name, label or form name (flows) is either a partial or full match of the filter text (case insensitive), then the field is shown in the list of candidate fields selectable for mapping. E-form fields that are incompatible with the PDF field are not shown in the list . Search will find special mapped items such as Signed Section signature, date signed as well as the single select comment field. Use option control values to search for selection control options.
PDF FieldThe name of the field in the acroform is displayed here.

  3. Determine the selectable values for the other options.
  4. Change the values for the options in the properties pane of the radio control in the e-form to match the Selectable Values that you saw when you clicked on the more link. The options values of the Live Form frevvo Status control in the e-form must match the Selectable Values EXACTLY. The case of the option values is important. The option values MUST be the same case as listed in the mapping dialogue.

A user who selects the Head of Household radio button in the Live Form frevvo will see that option checked if the mapping is done correctly.
