Fill in a PDF Form from source code.

Jun 10, 2011 5:07 AM



I have a PDF form made with LiveCycle. This form read the data from a xml file. I'm trying to fill it programatically but i don't know how. I'd like to know if there is some way to do this action, from source code or with a command line.


Thanks a lot.

    This is pretty easy.


    What language do you use to fill the form data programatically? e.g Java/ .Net ??

    iText is an API which has the PDF edit capabilities.

    Read this link :



    If you have Adobe LiveCycle Forms ES/ES2 solution component, you need not go for iText; Instead, you can invoke the LC APIs through and merge the XML data into the PDF.


    If you would go with option#2, let me know. I will share you my ideas.
