Unable to correctly display Date in the form

Hi, I am having an issue with filling form which has date fields. Dates comes up like 12//3919 but when click on the field then it shows correct date and format 04/12/2019 per this example.
I’ve seen complaints about this issue from other users ( PDFNET-44080 ). The scenario is identical.
Document pdfDocument = new Document(filename);
TextBoxField txtTest = pdfDocument.Form[“TextField”] as TextBoxField;
TextBoxField txtDateField1 = pdfDocument.Form[“DateField1”] as TextBoxField;
TextBoxField txtDateField2 = pdfDocument.Form[“DateField2”] as TextBoxField;

txtTest.Value = DateTime.Now.ToString();
txtDateField1.Value = DateTime.Now.ToString(“dd/MM/yyyy”);
txtDateField2.Value = DateTime.Now.ToString();


It displays correctly in a text box but not in date box. I am using version Aspose.PDF 19.11.0
