Hey there,

I know this is probably a little backwards, HOWEVER, I'm dynamically creating a pdf with fields and such, then after filling it I want to flatten the form before saving so the fields get embedded on the pdf however when I call the form.flatten all my fields/data disappears, but everything is fine if I don't flatted.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jakob,

Thank you for using Syncfusion Products.

We are unable to reproduce the issue with flattening the form. We have attached a sample in the link below in which we have created the TextBoxField dynamically, filled with text and set the flatten property to true. Please refer to the sample.

Hey Selvakumar,

I bet it is something easy, I don't have CS on my machine at the moment, is there any way you can post it in VB ? that would be most appreciated.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help out.

Also I should have mentioned I'm using V4.3.0.30 not anything new of the Syncfusion PDF.
