What kind of PDF format should be used in order to use FormFiling

Hi there!

-I did try to scan one document and saved as a PDF file, and it did not work when I tried to create the form from that PDF.

-I also download one PDF from one of the Post and it worked.

What kind of PDF format do I have to use in order to use FormFilling?



private void FillForm()
if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(this._pDFPath))
PdfLoadedDocument loadedDocument = this.LoadPDFDocument(this._pDFPath);
if (loadedDocument != null)
//The code below returns "null" if the loadedPDF is the one I scan
PdfLoadedForm loadedForm = this.LoadForm(loadedDocument);
if (loadedForm != null)
int count =0;
foreach (Object obj in loadedForm.Fields)
PdfLoadedTextBoxField tbField = obj as PdfLoadedTextBoxField;
if (tbField != null)
tbField.Text = "F "+count;

//(loadedForm.Fields["f1-1"] as PdfLoadedTextBoxField).Text = "First field";
//(loadedForm.Fields["f1-2"] as PdfLoadedTextBoxField).Text = "Second field";

//(loadedForm.Fields["f1-1"] as PdfLoadedTextBoxField).Text = "Third field";
