You can set your form so it is compressed when the user saves it. Setting file compression is done in the Advanced IBM
® Forms Designer Perspective.
If you do not have the Advanced IBM
Forms Designer Perspective open, go to Window
-> Open Perspective
-> Advanced IBM Forms Designer
. The Properties
view appears on the right-hand side of the screen.
To compress a form:
- In the Outline view, expand globalpage and select Form Global.
- In the Properties view, expand General.
- Click saveformat.
The saveformat value field is highlighted and the text is editable.
- Type application/vnd.xfdl;content-encoding=“base64-gzip” and press Enter.
The next time you save the form, it will be saved as a compressed XFDL file.
