Quick Start: Invoking a service using DIME in a .NET project

The following C# code example invokes a process named MyApplication/EncryptDocument from a Microsoft .NET project using Dime. (See Invoking LiveCycle using Base64 encoding.)

An unsecured PDF document based on a PDF file named map.pdf is passed to the LiveCycle process using DIME. The process returns a password-encrypted PDF document that is saved as a PDF file named mapEncrypt.pdf.

    * Ensure that you create a .NET project that uses  
    * Web Services Enhancements 2.0. This is required to send a  
    * LiveCycle process an attachment using DIME. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using DIME" in Programming with LiveCycle.
