    Multiple Column text field in Static PDF form

    zombiejellyfish81

      Okay, I'm pulling my hair out here. I am filling a .pdf form with itextsharp using powershell scripts. All this part of the issue is working fine.

       

      My problem is that I have the following data:

       

      A3015400R-2,A3015318R-1,A3015318R-2,A3015336R-1,A3015423R-1,A3015423R-2,A3015486R-1,A30153 06R-1,A3015240R-1,A3015102R-1,A3015333R-1,A3015120R-1,A3015158R-1,A3015333R-1,A3015400R-3, A3015400R-6,A3015400R-7,A3015234R-1,A3015234R-2,A3015400R-9,A3015306R-5,A3015311R-1,A30154 00R-2,A3015318R-1,A3015318R-2,A3015336R-1,A3015423R-1,A3015423R-2,A3015486R-1,A3015306R-1, A3015240R-1,A3015102R-1,A3015333R-1,A3015120R-1,A3015158R-1,A3015333R-1,A3015400R-3,A30154 00R-6,A3015400R-7,A3015234R-1,A3015234R-2,A3015400R-9,A3015306R-5,A3015311R-1

       

      That I would like to be displayed in columns across the page within one text field. So that the text field would look like this (approximately):

       

      A3015400R-2
      A3015318R-1
      A3015318R-2
      A3015336R-1
      A3015423R-1
      A3015423R-2
      A3015486R-1
      A3015306R-1
      A3015240R-1
      A3015102R-1
      A3015333R-1

      A3015120R-1

       

      I have the data sorted before I populate, so they go in numerical order, and i would like the be able to read them from top to bottom, left to right.

       

      I just can't figure out how to either:

       

      a) add multiple columns like I add multiple lines inside a text field

      or

      b) have multiple text fields linked together to thread the text input from fieldA to fieldB

       

      Any help would be much appreciated.

       

      edit: The data is actually in this format:

       

      A3015400R-2

      A3015318R-1

      A3015318R-2

      A3015336R-1

      A3015306R-1

      A3015240R-1

      A3015102R-1

      A3015333R-1
