Once you have created and tested your extensions you can distribute them as .ifx files

To distribute your extensions so that they may be used by a specificIBM® Forms product:
  • Copy the extension file to the Extensions folder of the IBM Forms product that will use the extension.
    • For example, in order for the multiply function to work in the Viewer, you would copy the file fciExtension.ifx to the following folder:
    •          <Viewer Program folder>\Extensions

To distribute your extensions so that they may be used by all IBM Forms products:
  • Copy the extension file to the Forms System Global Extensions folder.
    • For example in order for the multiply function to work in the Viewer you would copy the file fciExtension.ifx to the following folder:
    •          C:\<Windows System>\PureEdge\Extensions
