New to Acrobat. Have 9 Professional 9.1.3.
How can I create the same forms in different layers at 1 page document?
For example: you open the file, see the first layer with the forms, fill them, click the button to check forms for completeness and correctness of the entered data, sends the value of forms to server via xml, and opens the second layer, non-editing, in which the data is already entered in the appropriate fields. Ideally, if there will be automatically offered to print the second layer.
This may help the end-user to deal with a plenty of forms, because the second layer is overloaded by data and there is no place for full descriptions on how to fill forms correctly.
If this idea is not possible and the i need to place forms on different pages, explain how to hide the second page till end-user has pressed submit button. Also i need to know how to print only the second page.
Help would be deeply appreciated.
Would be grateful for at least a reference to the tutorial or smth.

I do not think Acrobat can do what you want. You probably can write a script that when the first page is submitted and approved the form fields become lockes. Check in the Acrobat scripting and/or the LiveCycle Design forums to see if this is possible. You cannot hide pages so that I user will know it doesn't exist. You could try to hide content, but that is really over the top. Users are not that stupid. They have probably filled out multipage paper forms for years and can handle the electronic version with no problem. To get the type of control you are looking for you are much better off placing the pdf file(s) on a server. Ask the user to fill out the form verify and do what you need, then let a new pdf file take the information to a second screen. In fact, it may be easier to avoid pdfs entirely and use html based forms.
