Do you have any examples that you could show on how to add new controls to an existing forms-enabled PDF document?

(e.g. to be able to add things such as comboboxes, checkboxes, textboxes, etc. for data collection purposes onto the form)

Or, if possible, how to create a new form and insert it into an existing document? My methodology might be a bit askance in this second request.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Michael

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.


Unfortunately there is no any helper classes to add acro forms.
We are working on it now.

There is only one way to add fields - you may try to do that through dictionary.
(Document.Root property).
But in this case you should understand PDF internal format.

I am studying that (The ISO 32000 document) Could any of you provide any further guidance? I thought that it might come down to having to manipulate the dictionaries themselves. Could you provide some specifics as to which one(s) and how?

Currently we are using PDF Reference sixth edition by Adobe.
You can find it here http://www.adobe.com/con...ve/pdf_reference_1-7.pdf

Looks like you need AcroForm dictionary (document.Root["AcroForm"])
Description of that dictionary can be found on page 672 at the reference above.
