Well, that is about it. When our app gets a pdf, I'd like to be able to check if it has XFA forms within it. How can I do that?

  PdfLoadedXfaDocument loadedDocument = new PdfLoadedXfaDocument(filePath); 
            //Get the loaded XFA form. 
            PdfLoadedXfaForm loadedForm = loadedDocument.XfaForm; 

but .XfaForm nolonger seems to be valid.

Hi Will, 

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

At present we do not have support for determining if the PDF document is XFA enabled, but we have support for filling XFA form fields along with Acroform in the same API. Documentation link for the same can be found in below link: 
UG link : 

Could you please let us know what is your exact need for identifying XFA form documents so that we can assist you better.
