Examples XFDL format
This example shows a button which, when clicked, will submit the form in XFDL format.
When a user clicks the button, the entire form definition will be submitted, unless other transmit options specify a partial submission.
- Default: The default is the format that the form was in before it was parsed. For example, a form written in XFDL will be transmitted in XFDL unless otherwise specified by this option.
- This option can be included as a form global option and in the definitions of items that trigger form submissions. These items have a type option setting of submit or done.
