To fill HTML Rich Text in PDF Form Field

Hi Sir/Mam,

We are trying to fill an existing PDF form with HTML Rich Text content using the code similar to the one in the below url post. But the code suggested in the post doesnt seem to fix the issue still in Aspose.PDF7.2.0 version dll. The field type of the 'field1' mentioned in the below piece of code is returned as MultiLine Text while debugging. Please confirm whether we are missing anything or whether the issue still exists in Aspose.PDF 7.2.0 version as well. Please help in fixing this issue ASAP, as its an high priority issue that we face and will have to deliver to client ASAP.

string htmlText = "

Test content

  • One
  • Two

var pdf = new Document("input.pdf");

var richTBF = pdf.Form["field1"] as RichTextBoxField;

richTBF.RValue = htmlText;


Thanks for helping in it.

Adding to it, the value thats filled in the generated PDF just contains the text 'Test contentOneTwo' and it doesnt display the text in paragraph format or as bulletin format as expected.


Can you please respond to this request ASAP, as we are nearing the Client Demo for this feature. Please let me know whether you need the Aspose.PDF license information to process the request.


Hi Jerrold,

Sorry for the inconvenience faced. I’m afraid the subjected issue has not been fixed yet. While testing with latest version, I’ve found another formatting issue and logged as PDFNEWNET-34900 in our issue tracking system. Our development team is already working on rich text box control and hopefully html text value formatting issue will be fixed in coming release. However, we’ll keep you updated via this forum thread regarding issue progress.

Thanks for your patience and cooperation.

Best Regards,

Hi Tilal,

Thanks a lot for your immediate response. Can you please suggest whether there is any other way to assign HTML formated text (which can be rendered properly with all the HTML styles in the HTML formated text thats assigned to the field) to a PDF Form Field. It will be really grateful if you could suggest some alternate way to get this fix done.

Thanks a lot for helping in it.

Hi Jerrold,

Sorry for the inconvenience faced. I'm afraid only Rich text box field accepts the HTML formatted text and development team is already working over it to fix. I have recorded your concerns regarding the urgency of the matter and requested the development team to share the ETA at earliest and as soon as I get a feedback I will update you via this forum thread.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
