Hi Aishah,

Thank you very much for considering Aspose.

Are you talking about FormEditor.MoveField method? Are you using the latest version of Aspose.Pdf.Kit at your end? If yes then can you please share a little more details regarding your requirement, along with sample PDF file?

We’re looking forward to help you out.
Regards,


I am trying to move the control on a pre-created template, but it does does not work. I created the pdf with Adobe Professional editor.

Aspose.Pdf.Kit.Form formEditor = new Aspose.Pdf.Kit.Form(templatePdfPath);
formEditor.MoveField(“TextFieldTitle”, 200, 710, 225, 735);
formEditor.Save();

Just a further info : I am using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET 3.8.0 of the dll, does this version support formEditor.MoveField?

Cheers

Hi Aishah,

I have tested the issue using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET 3.8.0, but couldn’t notice the problem. MoveField method is working perfectly. I’m afraid, we’ll have to test the issue with your particular file. Please share the problematic PDF with us, so we could test the issue at our end.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Aspose Team

Thanks for all you efforts. I have attached the file as requested. I have been able to add new controls to it in specific co-ordinates. However when I try to move an existing control in this template (i.e. TextFieldTitle) or a newly added control, it does not work. I am providing the code below FYI. I have also tried it with all other version without success.

string sourcePath = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["BookPDFtemplate"].ToString());

string destPath = HttpContext.Current.Server.MapPath(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["BookPDFdestination"].ToString());

//create instance of FormEditor

FormEditor editor = new FormEditor(sourcePath, destPath);

//move field to new position

editor.MoveField("TextFieldTitle", 10, 10, 50, 50);

This does not work either:

//remove existing field from the PDF

editor.RemoveField("TextFieldTitle”);

editor.Save();


I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards

Hi Aspose Team
I appreciate your prompt response. I have another possible issue with Form.FillImageField. While it’s perfectly ok to put an image with an extention with .htm or .jpeg or .bmp it however, does not work on .ashx file despite that fact that it’s mime type is .jpeg?

Kind regards

Hi Ahsanul,

Our team has looked into your requirement and I would like to update you with the details. As .ashx files define ASP.NET HTTP Handlers and doesn’t define any physical thing like .JPG etc, so it is not feasible to support .ashx file to fill the field. Nevertheless, can you please elaborate your requirement a little bit, so we could further look into this matter?

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
