Pre populating a PDF and making it editable using iText
Joined: Nov 28, 2007
Hello to all the Ranchers,
I see to be hitting my head onto a problem for which I am not getting a solution over the net. So I seek help from you.
My program was to populate a PDF with values and return the form using iText.
I was able to do this and things were going fine. It was later decided that the form has to be made editable after the values are populated using iText.
This part I am unable to do.
I have tried using the PDFStamper.partialFormFlattening() along with the stamper.setFormFlattening(true) with not much success.
Many have enquired for this same issue and I do not see any concrete answers coming in.
Below is a section of the sample code. I was able to partially populate the PDF but then the PDF was uneditable. I want it to be editable
Any help regarding is greatly appreciated.

If you use iText in earnest, then you simply must get a copy of "iText in Action". Without it, you'll waste countless hours hunting down arcane knowledge of iText's inner working that aren't well (or not at all) documented. Be sure to get the right edition: ed. 1 for iText 1 and 2, ed. 2 for iText 5.
