The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a popular file format for documents. Due to their ubiquity and layout capabilities, it’s not uncommon for a websites to use PDF technology. For example, an eCommerce store may offer a “printable receipt” option that, when selected, displays a PDF file within the browser. Last week’s article, Filling in PDF Forms with ASP.NET and iTextSharp , looked at how to work with a special kind of PDF document, namely one that has one or more fields defined. A PDF document can contain various types of user interface elements, which are referred to as fields. For instance, there is a text field, a checkbox field, a combobox field, and more. Typically, the person viewing the PDF on her computer interacts with the document’s fields; however, it is possible to enumerate and fill a PDF’s fields programmatically, as we saw in last week’s article.
