Read PDF plugin beta published

11 years 9 months ago #31376 by mikko
This plugin allows users to upload PDF files and reads text data from these files to CB profile.

It is configured by writing XML document description files and uses POSIX style regular expressions for pattern matching (ereg function in php). Setting it up is likely to require some trial and error.

A use case for this plugin would be that users who sign up must submit a PDF form (for example an official document), which is then used to fill in the profile and the user only need to enter the mandatory joomla fields.

Now if only someone developed a tool to extract a PDF form and XML document description file from CB database, we would have a system for offline registrations ;)

I welcome all comments.

In the future this plugin will support reading data to listtab plugin.
