It seems like the api does not have the ability to read and insert values into a pdf fillable form. Will this feature be implemented in the near future? If so, any timeline? Thanks.

Hi Philip,

Form fields and form filling are not supported at this point. The feature is in our backlog, but at this point I'm afraid I couldn't comment on a specific time frame when it might be available.

I suggest you follow this item on the public portal to be notified about the team's progress on this.

HI Petya,

 

Is this functionality supported now? We have Telerik control subscription and i want to open fillable pdf in ASP.net or .Net Core with some fields pre-filled and user able to edit and save details in fillable form and then generate pdf and send it to targeted location.

 

Thanks,

Nimesh

Hi Nimesh,

Yes, this is supported now. Detailed information is available in the following section in our documentation: FormField | Telerik Document Processing.

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

To be clear, someone can create a PDF form using Abobe Acrobat and I can use Telerik's PDFProcessing to fill out the fields with values coming from a database and then make the form read only?

Hello Neil,

Yes, this is supported. An example can be found here: Iterate and modify form fields in code.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi William,

You can use the example provided by Dimitar that illustrates how you can access the values of the different fields. I have already posted a reply in the ticket you have submitted, but will copy it here in case someone else encounters the same question:

You can use the API provided by PdfProcessing to achieve that. For more information about working with form fields, please refer to the Interactive Forms section in our documentation. We have also a handy demo showing how you can iterate all fields inside a document and access their values: Modify Forms.

Something you should have in mind - in the 2019.3 version (tagged as the used one in the ticket info), the models of PdfViewer and PdfProcessing are still different and you will need to export the document from PdfViewer and then import it with PdfProcessing. Both models have been united starting from R1 2021 and, in later versions, such conversions are not needed.

Hope this is helpful.
