Programmatically filling AcroForm fields

Post by Eval_dotNET »

I am writing an ASP.NET-based app that will take existing PDF files that contain AcroForm fields and populate them with data from a database. The app will then "flatten" the fields to create a static PDF document that will be displayed in a browser.

It appears based on your feature list that the PDF Creator .NET Library will be the product to use for this app. I downloaded the developer documentation to see if the library had the features I need. Unfortunately, it's unclear whether the library has the needed functionality I require or at least I couldn't find it documented. Could you provide sample code (C# or VB) showing how to populate AcroForm fields? Also, does your library have the capability to flatten AcroForm fields? Thanks!

We can handle AcroForm fields using the PDF Creator.

You can open your pdf file using PDFCreactiveDoc.exe and try to use your AcroForm fields to see how it works.

I don't have a VB or C# code that demonstrates how to use selections programatically, please contact and they will send you the needed sample.
