The format PLZ (XML Forms Architecture) was introduced by Adobe Systems, and provides the ability to insert (fillable) fields into PDF documents and determine the layout of a form. Because it is embedded in the PDF, this component can be used to fill out forms, perform calculations, validate work, and save changes made in filled forms. If you have a PDF form in XFA format in your hands, below you will see how you can open it, view it, fill it in or convert it to other formats. The program to rely on for all these operations is PDFelement Professional.

The architecture of moduli XFA it is an architecture based on XML which supports the creation of documents through the use of templates based on the XML language. Its features meet a wide range of business needs, including dynamic reflow, dynamic actions based on user interaction or automatic server events, headers, footers, and complex form representations that can process data on large scale.
PLZ can be seen as the set of two main components: templates and content. The models define the rules of presentation, calculation and interaction and are based on XML. Content is the static or dynamic data, stored in the document, which is associated with the templates.
Dynamic XFA indicates that the content will later be defined as binding to a template. In such a form here's what you can do:
- Form fields can be moved or resized
- Form fields automatically grow or shrink based on the amount of text entered or deleted.
- As a form field grows, it can span multiple pages
- Elements on the page are shown or hidden as needed
