XML characters on Field.value throw Error on EntityName


I’m facing an issue with the function Aspose.Pdf.InteractiveFeatures.Forms.Field.value and XML characters.
If I tri to set the value of a field, I got the error “An error occurred while parsing EntityName”, if any character in these &, ", < and > is found.
I also tried to escape those characters. If I do so, there is no more error, but the value if displayed with the escape characters in the pdf.

I tried a thing like that :
Dim field As Aspose.Pdf.InteractiveFeatures.Forms.Field
field = mpCurrentPdfDocument.Form(“myField”)
field.Value = “test &value” ’ <— this line throw an error

Actually, I’m evaluating your product. Could you give me a way to get throw this issue.
