Can't read selected value from XFA combobox


I’m using Aspose PDF .NET v20.8.0 and I have a PDF file which has a selected combobox value in the form when I open it in the reader. I’m able to read text field’s content. I’m also able to read the combobox options but not the combobox selected value. I can see the value name in the list but …XFA[name] is empty.

What am I doing wrong?

BTW, I think it’s the same with checkboxes.



Could you please share the sample PDF along with code snippet which you are using to read the value. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.

Aspose.Pdf.License license = new Aspose.Pdf.License();

        Document pdfDocument = new Document(@"c:\temp\9605900-10-Servicereportletter - Application.pdf");
        //foreach (Field formField in pdfDocument.Form)
        //    Console.WriteLine("Field Name : {0} ", formField.PartialName);
        //    Console.WriteLine("Value : {0} ", formField.Value);

        string[] names = pdfDocument.Form.XFA.FieldNames;
