Convert Dynamic XFA to Standard AcroForm in PDF using C# with Aspose.PDF for .NET

Hello, I am evaluating your tool to convert dynamic xfa pdfs into standard Pdfs. I have downloaded the examples from github (https://github.com/aspose-pdf/Aspose.PDF-for-.NET/archive/master.zip). I run the DynamicXFAToAcroForm and the output with both 19.12.0 and 20.1.0 versions is a pdf that has the “Please wait… If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents” message in Adobe Acrobat Pro.

I noticed that after running document.Form.Type = FormType.Standard; document.form.type is still dynamic.

Please let me let me know what I need to look at.

Thanks for contacting support.

You need to save document first before checking the Form Type again. Please consider using following code snippet:

Document document = new Document(dataDir + "DynamicXFAToAcroForm.pdf");
document.Form.Type = FormType.Standard;
dataDir = dataDir + "Standard_AcroForm_out.pdf";
document.Save(dataDir);
document = new Document(dataDir);
Console.WriteLine(document.Form.Type);

output:

Standard

Thanks for the response.
That did out put standard but the resulting pdf just outputs.
