PDF Form Fields Not Found

Postby waldav00 » Tue Jul 18, 2017 4:19 am

Hi,

I downloaded Spire.PDF tonight. I need to fill in the fields in a PDF form and then print the document. When I followed your code sample, it is not finding any fields. What might I be doing wrong? Below is a snippet of my code and I've attached the exact file that I need to fill in via code. Thanks so much.

PdfDocument pdf;
pdf = new PdfDocument();
pdf.LoadFromFile(@"M:\Forms\CFIA - Phyto Application.pdf", Spire.Pdf.FileFormat.PDF);
PdfFormWidget formWidget = pdf.Form as PdfFormWidget;
int x = pdf.Form.Fields.List.Count;
for (int i = 0; i < formWidget.FieldsWidget.List.Count; i++)
{
}

Dear waldav00,

Thanks for your inquiry.
The forms in your PDF are XFA forms, so please use following code to get forms in your PDF.
Code: Select all
            PdfFormWidget formWidget = pdf.Form as PdfFormWidget;
            for (int i = 0; i < formWidget.XFAForm.XfaFields.Count; i++)
            {

            }


Sincerely,
Betsy

Thanks so much for the quick response. I am now getting the error message:
'Spire.Pdf.Widget.PdfFormWidget; does not contain a definition for 'XFAForm'.

Any ideas why?
