How to get Field Appearance value


I set field appearance value to one of PDF form fields using Aspose.pdf 7.2 for .net.

Aspose.Pdf.Facades.FormEditor fe = new Aspose.Pdf.Facades.FormEditor();
fe.SetFieldAppearance(“mycombo”, Aspose.Pdf.InteractiveFeatures.AnnotationsAnnotationFlags.Hidden);“c:\out.pdf”);

After setting field appearance, can I somehow get this value? I couldn’t find a method like getFieldAppearance().

I am afraid the requested feature is

requirement in our issue tracking system under New Features list as PDFNEWNET-34271. We will further investigate this requirement
in details and will keep you updated on the status of a correction.

apologize for your inconvenience.

Hi Yosuke,

Thanks for your patience.

In order to get the field appearance properties, we have added a method GetFieldAppearance(fieldName) in FormEditor class. The return type of this method is AnnotationFlags. Please take a look over following code snippet and this feature will become available from Aspose.Pdf for .NET 7.5.0.


Aspose.Pdf.Facades.FormEditor form = new
