Preview of a generated document in a form

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have created with BPMN editor a process that generate a document. In a next task, i would like to display this document in a form to allow the task assignee to view it.

I would like to have the same functionnality as if the generated document was an uploaded document : in the form, a link is display and if the user click on it, a popup is displayed with a preview of the document.

Is it possible and how can i do ?

Hi Raphael,

This is possible if you use a display value (instead of display text). The generated document variable will be available for you to select in the DisplayValue->Variable->SelectVariable (dropdown).

Also, the generated document is automatically linked to the process and you can preview it from there as well by going into the process list. App->Processes->Select your running process instance.

Regards,

Ciju

Hello,

My forms are in Activiti Suite.

I would like to preview a generated document from an activiti form.

To preview an uploaded document from a form, i use the component "Display Text" and in the text to display, i just put this value : ${name_of_attachFile_field}.

With this method, i have a link in my displayed form and when click on it, it display a popup with a preview of the uploaded document.

But, it doesn't work with a generated document as we only get the ID of this content.

Is it possible to have the same link as an uploaded document and how can i do ?
