I know to use PdfLoadedTextBoxField for loaded text boxes but what do I use for loading date fields?  Any help would be appreciated.  This is being done in C#.

Is XFA the only way?  Here's a snippet of my code:

(form.Fields["f1_1"] as PdfLoadedTextBoxField).Text = sFullName;

(form.Fields["f1_5"] as PdfLoadedTextBoxField).Text = sFullName + ", " + sStreetAddr + ", " + sCity + ", " + sState + ", " + sZip;

(form.Fields["c1_6"] as PdfLoadedCheckBoxField).Checked = true;

(form.Fields["c1_1[0]"] as PdfLoadedCheckBoxField).Checked = true;

//This is where I want to load the date field
(form.Fields["Date1"] as PdfLoaded).Text = DateTime.Today.ToShortDateString();
