In Adobe, you can edit a form field textbox, and go to the Format tab.  There you can select a format category, such as 'Date', then select form predetermined formats, such as mm/dd/yyyy.  I need to access this setting in my code, before setting the Text property of the field.

Something like:

PdfLoadedTextBoxField f = (PdfLoadedTextBoxField)form.Fields[FieldName];
if(f.Format.Category == "Date")
  //Format my value accordingly
  Value = ".....";
f.Text = Value;
