Form Fields?

Feb 22, 2011 at 8:23 PM

Is there any way to create a form field using FO.NET?

I am trying to use FO.NET to create a PDF form that the user can fill out.

I need checkboxes, radio buttons, and textboxes.

I have searched until the end of google, yes, the entire end!

Found 100% nothing.

any help would be great.

There is no way to do this with FO.NET. I seem to remember a FOP extension for doing this, so you might be able to find some code samples in Java that could be ported to FO.NET.

Non-FO solutions are something else to look at. For example itextsharp will probably do form fields (or commercial components such as aspose).

Hope this helps

Thanks for your quick reply.

I have been unable to find a solution in iTextSharp.

I have found other solutions, at a cost.

I will continue to search. If you happen to find anything on that FOP extension, please let me know.

Thanks again, this project is really nice.
