DateEdit in PDF-Document


is there a way to insert a DateEdit (FormField) for a date value (with right formatting and input validation)?

Thanks Henry


Thanks for contacting support.

In order to apply DateTime Validation, you can achieve this by adding JavaScript action for TextBoxField. Please check following code snippet where I have created a sample text box with date validation. For your reference, I have also attached an output, generated by below code snippet.

Document pdfDocument = new Document();
TextBoxField tbf = new TextBoxField(pdfDocument.Pages[1], new Rectangle(10, 800, 200, 750));
tbf.Characteristics.Background = Color.Cyan;
PdfAction action = new JavascriptAction("AFDate_FormatEx(\"mm/dd/yyyy\");");
tbf.Actions.OnValidate = action;
pdfDocument.Form.Add(tbf, 1);
pdfDocument.Save(dataDir + "OutputTextBox_DateFormat.pdf");

OutputTextBox_DateFormat.pdf (2.2 KB)

In case of any further assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you! Its seems, there is no special Edit like a DateTimepicker. Correct?
