Putting PDF Forms in the Browser with FormVu

1 min read

Last month we had an exciting announcement: we have released our new browser-based PDF Form viewing solution, FormVu.

FormVu logoWhat is FormVu?

FormVu is a solution that puts PDF forms back into the browser where they belong. It is still possible to view PDF forms in the browser, and with FormVu you can build a much slicker, better-integrated solution than before.

FormVu provides everything required to display your forms inside the browser within a highly customisable Viewer which can be customised and programmatically controlled from JavaScript. It can even save back changes into the PDF form file.

FormVu supports both XFA and FDF forms, converting them into standalone HTML5 which can run in a browser. FormCalc and JavaScript in the Form are also supported and converted into standalone JavaScript. Once converted, there is no server dependency or round-tripping.

What problem does FormVu solve?

FormVu is designed for enterprise companies with online platforms that handle PDF forms. No longer do your customers need to struggle with opening PDF forms inside third-party applications that have poor support for form features. Instead, the Forms can be directly integrated into both your web front end and your server back end.

Your customers can view and fill the PDF form inside the browser itself where you control the experience. Current users of FormVu include insurance agencies, financial & banking solutions providers, legal case management solution providers, and more.

How can I use FormVu?

There is a 14 day free trial jar of FormVu. The application can either be run from your own servers or you can access our Cloud with a few lines of code. We provide examples for multiple languages including Java, JavaScript, PHP and Ruby. Check out our tutorials for more details.

How can I find out more?

If you have any questions about FormVu, you can find out more about it on FormVu page, and feel free to get in contact with us.
