I've been working on this for about a day now and have been unsuccessful. I have a PDF form that was generated in Adobe Designer 7. This form submits to an asp.net page and I save the PDF form information to a database. When the information needs to
be viewed/printed, I am trying to take the information out of the database and populate the same PDF form template. I have read through this thread and have tried what has been suggested and allI get is an empty PDF. It does not throw any errors for the
C# code that is populating the PDF. I am using the syntax:
PdfReader pdfSource = new PdfReader(sSource); PdfStamper pdfDest = new PdfStamper(pdfSource, Response.OutputStream); AcroFields aFields = pdfDest.AcroFields; aFields.SetField("FieldName", "Value"); pdfDest.Close();
The PDF is being written to the page's Response.OutputStream. One thing that I noticed when I was saving the submitted PDF form was that I had to reference the form variables like this:
In this instance I would be inserting the data into the form like this:
The fact that I am not getting an exception errors tells me that I am just not referencing the form fields correctly. Thanks for your help.
