PDF not showing edit text and enabling submit form button

Capture.PNG I could not find any example how to enable the pdf viewer to render the edit texts on the pdf and enable the submit button. Do we have access on how the code looks like for


? You guys only have one example and I used the same pdf and javascript code but it must be something on the API service that's keeping them from being edit text is my best guess. Please advise. Thank you

Find the details for the respective queries

Edit text

We are not clear about the query "edit Text", So, can you share the code snippet, video recording and more details about this query to proceed further.

Enabling submit button

If the document contains the form field, then only the submit button is enabled. This could be behavior of the PDF Viewer control.

We have shared the Web service sample and GitHub link for your reference.

I used your API sample to render the pdf and I have the same issue. The Pdf is not rendering annotations like radio buttons and text boxes which is not allowing me to fill out the form. it seems like its read only. I am using

"@syncfusion/ej2-angular-pdfviewer": "^20.3.52",

Thank you. That fixed it for me! but now the calculation in the pdf is not working which uses Adobe calculate and not javascript so I am not sure the pdfviewer supports it.

We don't have the support for calculated fields in the PDF Viewer control.
