Sample PDF CME Certificates
The following links are from a sample PDF CME certificate with embedded Activity Report XML. Thanks to Ed Chase at Adobe for producing these samples.
|.zip file||E. Chase||ZIP file that contains all of the following files||2007|
|CME Cert EC04162007||E. Chase||This is the sample XML file - it's basically exactly what you sent me with the package, but I think I had to spell out the ACCME acronym in the XML data to get it to look right on the certificate.||2007|
|CME Cert Template.xdp||E. Chase||This is the template file, it is an XML template for the PDF form that is really only used by LiveCycle Designer during the design process.||2007|
|CME Cert EC04162007.pdf||E. Chase||This file is the basic, un-populated PDF - you can open it in Acrobat and use the Forms>Manage Form Data>Import Data command to import the XML instance to see how this works.||2007|
|CME Cert EC04162007 - wData.pdf||E. Chase||This is a populated copy of the previous form, this might be helpful for people with only the free Adobe Reader as opposed to Acrobat.||2007|
|CME Cert EC04162007 - Certified wData.pdf||E. Chase||This is what a digitally signed or certified copy might look like - I've added a digital signature that provides identity, time & date stamps, and document integrity features. Not sure if you need something this advanced at this point, but we have a number of universities that use this sort of technology for their official transcripts.||2007|
