Form

Forms allow users to enter data that is sent to components in a process.

When setting up a form, configure options on the following three tabs:

General Tab

Fields Tab

Components Tab

Appearance Tab

General Tab

Option Description
Name The name of the form to be displayed on the Fujitsu scanner. For example, if this form is used to send the scanned documents to the user’s home directory, then you can name the form Scan to User’s Home Directory. This name must be unique among the forms of the current level.
Single Touch Scan Select this check box if you do not want the user to enter any indexing data about the document. By selecting this option, the scan will start immediately after the user presses the "form" button on the device.
Scan Settings This table lists all the available Fujitsu Network Scanner scan settings. In the Value column you can set default scan settings, which will be used if the user does not change the setting at the device panel.

Select the Allow changes check box on each setting to provide the user the ability to change setting from the device panel. See Fujitsu Operator’s guide for detailed description of each scan parameter.

  • Max Page Count per Batch — A batch can be from 1 to 999. The default is 0, which is the same as specifying 999. If this is set to 2, the user can scan 2 pages at a time. The user then has to click Scan More to continue scanning to add to the existing batch.
  • Color Mode — Select from Auto, Color, Gray Scale (6010) or Black & White (6000), Black & White (6010).
  • Paper Size (mm) — Select from the drop-down list. By selecting the custom option, you can enter paper height and width.
    • Regular paper size — Width ranges from 1.0mm to 215.9mm (8.50 inch), Height ranges from 1.0mm to 355.6mm (14.00 inch).
    • Long pages — Width ranges from 1.0mm to 215.9mm (8.50 inch), Height ranges from 1.0mm to 863.6mm (34.00 inch).
  • Resolution — Enter the resolution level that is desired.
  • Scan Mode — Select Simplex to scan the front side or Duplex to scan front and reverse sides.
  • File Format — Select from TIFF, MTIFF, JPEG (JPEG format is not compatible with Black & White), and PDF
  • PDF Password — If PDF is selected for File Format, you can select this check box and provide a password for opening the PDF file.
  • Searchable PDF — When the file format is PDF, the scanned data can be converted to a searchable PDF. You can select which pages are to be made text searchable. This functionality works with US and European devices.
  • Brightness — Select a brightness level by moving the bar.
  • Contrast — Select a contrast level by moving the bar.
  • Auto Page Orientation — Automatically rotates each scanned page that contains text through 0, 90, 180, or 270, so the text is upright.
  • Blank Page Skip — This feature removes blank pages from the scan job. This feature is useful when scanning both one-sided and two-sided documents in Duplex mode. When this option is checked, the reverse sides (blank pages) are removed.
  • Multi-feed Detection — When two or more sheets are fed simultaneously into the scanner by and automatic document feeder (ADF), this setting detects multi-feeds.
Dynamic Form
  • Enable Dynamic Form — Standard behavior of a form can be modified by responding to events. This check box allows the workflow server to load form snap-ins. Here are some examples of what enabling dynamic forms can do:
    • Add and remove fields.
    • Change field contents (Example: load the contents of a list field from a database).
    • Validate field contents before the document is scanned into the server.
  • Snap-in path — Path to the compiled snap-in (.net assembly) that contains the code to respond to form and field events. If you have an existing snap-in you want to use, click the browse button (...) next to the Snap-in path box. Create/Edit Snap-in:You can also click the Create/Edit Snap-in button to open a code editor window with basic snap-in code.

    For details of the code editor window and the object model used to respond to form and field events, please refer to the Fujitsu Capture Component Snap-in documentation  by clicking Help in the code editor window.

  • Source Path — The path to the source code of the snap-in. This path is used by code editor to compile the snap-in only during design time.
  • Form is Loaded — Select this check box to cause the form to initiate an event every time the user enters the form.
  • Form is Submitted — Select this check box to make the form to initiate an event every time the user presses Scan button in this form.

Option Description
Name The field name should be unique among the other fields within this form.
Display The text which is displayed above the field at the device panel.
Size Type A field can be full sized or half sized. A full sized field takes the entire space form the left margin to the right margin on the scanner panel, a half sized field takes only half the space between the margins.
Type A field type represents the format by which data is collected at the device panel. Regardless of field type, the result will be in text format. The following field types are supported:
  • Text - Allows a user to enter unformatted text.
  • Numeric - Allows a user to enter numbers (with or without decimal point).
  • Checkbox — Allows a user to set yes/no or true/false values by pressing a button.
  • DateTime — Allows a user to enter date and time information in different formats
  • List — Allows to present users with a list of choices from which users select the desired item. Use this field type if you want a text field with auto complete capabilities. If a list of choices is too long, the list can be made searchable.
  • AddressBook — Allows a user to perform a search in LDAP directory.
  • Button — Allows a user to raise an event on server side.
  • Tree — Allows to present users with a list of choices in a tree from which users select the desired item.
Required Field Select this check box to require the user to enter a field value at the scanner panel.
Notify Server If checked, this field triggers an event when the value of the field changes.  You can respond to this event in the snap-in that was configured for the dynamic form section in the General tab.  For details on how to respond to form and field events, refer to the Fujitsu Capture Component Snap-in documentation.
Properties Allows editing additional properties of the field type.
