    • perform

      Performs the operation on a data providing element.

      Be aware that this method operates asynchronously! That is, the method call will return immediately, while the operation will be performed concurrently. Subsequent calls on the RemoteFormData-instance returned will most probably block until the operation is finished. If such a subsequent call is done from inside the event dispatch thread, that call most probably will time out and throw the respective exception.

      Parameters:
      element - The data providing element.
      Returns:
      A form data providing access to the fields of opened form. If a modifying access is not possible, a read onlyform data will be provided.
      Throws:
      OperationSetupException - If the operation cannot be performed with the given setup.
