Note: This variable type was deprecated in LiveCycle
A complex data type that holds form data (in binary format) and
the URL of a PDF or XML form. The form can be merged with the data
when the form is rendered at run time.
Document Form variables are typically used in
human-centric processes where a PDF document must be created from
the data and the form, and saved unaltered. In this case, the form
is usually a PDF file. For example, a process requires that a user
digitally signs a PDF form. The form is saved as a PDF document
that is not altered thereafter.
By default, the render service that is used for Document Form variables
is the invoke operation that the Default Render service provides.
This service is a process that Process Management provides. The
process merges the variable’s form data with the associated form.
No default submit service is configured.
