Hello,

The feature has been supported. Welcome to test the latest version of Spire.PDF(http://www.e-iceblue.com/Download/downl ... t-now.html).
Sample code:

Code: Select all
  static void Filldata()
        {
            PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();
            doc.LoadFromFile(@"..\..\FormField.pdf");
            PdfFormWidget formWidget = doc.Form as PdfFormWidget;
            for (int i = 0; i < formWidget.FieldsWidget.List.Count; i++)
            {
                PdfField field = formWidget.FieldsWidget.List[i] as PdfField;
                if (field is PdfTextBoxFieldWidget)
                {
                    PdfTextBoxFieldWidget textBoxField = field as PdfTextBoxFieldWidget;
                    switch (textBoxField.Name)
                    {
                        case "email":
                            textBoxField.Text = "support@e-iceblue.com";
                            break;
                        case "username":
                            textBoxField.Text = "E-iceblue";
                            break;
                        case "password":
                            textBoxField.Password = true;
                            textBoxField.Text = "e-iceblue";
                            break;

Does this feature work in the free version?

Error occurs at:

For i As Integer = 0 To formWidget.FieldsWidget.List.Count - 1

Great. Thanks for the reply. Building an app for pdf file creation and form fill for inspection reports. Your software is the ticket.

Dear support,

We are using your Free Spire.PDF library via nuget in our project. Version is 3.0.26.56040.
Although the fields are successfully enumerated in the code and populated with data, the exported PDF does not contain the form data. I have uploaded a test project for review - it contains the pdf and the codebase we are using.

Best Regards,
Gergő

Dear Gergő,

Thanks for your inquiry.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused by Free Spire.PDF. It does have the issue, we only maintain our free version of Spire.PDF when we have enough time.

I recommend you try the latest commercial Spire.PDF Pack Version:3.2.0. It can resolve your issue.
