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

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

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

    * Ensure that you create a .NET project that uses  
    * MS Visual Studio 2008 and version 3.5 of the .NET 
    * framework. This is required to invoke a  
    * LiveCycle service using MTOM. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using MTOM" in Programming with LiveCycle

Note: Many quick starts that show how to perform LiveCycle service operations include a MTOM code example.
