The main purpose of Mi-Forms Print on Demand is to allow digital pen forms to be pre-populated or pre-filled with database information and new writing on a pre-filled form correctly associated with that information.
Here are the high-level steps to create a Mi-Forms Print on Demand solution:
Create a POD enabled form in the Mi-Forms Designer and upload to the Mi-Forms Server.
Upload 1 or more unique shelves of pattern to the Mi-Forms Server.
Create a POD printing application using our POD SDK to do the following:
- Request pattern from the Mi-Forms Server.
- Apply pattern to a form.
- Collect and store pre-fill information (optional).
- Generate and sync PAD files or obtain the Master PAD Utility from Mi-Co.
- Generate and print PostScript files.
If you have the Mi-Forms POD SDK, you already have several sample POD applications available for review under C:\Program Files\Mi-Co\Mi-Forms POD SDK X.Y\Examples.
The use of unique pattern via our Print On Demand solution requires more upfront investment in development but repays in more control over the process, enhanced usability and the enabling of features like digital paper form prefill.
