I''ve experimented with the IPDFForm interface and the CreateTextBox() method, which seems to work well. But, of course Adobe Reader will not permit saving user-input text entered into these fields. It would be very useful to be able to create a PDF "Reader" that would permit users to enter text into these text boxes, check boxes, etc. and then save the resulting PDF back to a file. This would require being able to read a PDF document as well as write it. Another user mentioned the value of this, and I too would like to advocate it, particularly for form entry type applications. Regards, --Van Baker

Hi Van, Thanks for your feedback. According to our current development schedule, we will be adding support for filling Acroform fields in existing PDF files [Read support]using Essential PDF in the next 4-6 weeks, so you would be able to get input from users using windows forms controls like textbox, combobox etc and fill in the PDF forms dynamically. However we do not have any immediate plans to create a complete PDF Viewer component that would allow the user to fill in and save acroforms. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks. Best regards, Stephen. >I''ve experimented with the IPDFForm interface and the CreateTextBox() method, which seems to work well.
