iText helps me convert HTML to PDF. It works cool for most of requirements parsing even tables and borders, I want to have more positioning and HTML controls like text box and radio button tags to be converted into PDFs... is it possible through iText or do I need to switch over to something else?

This one doesnt work for me.




I am able to compile the code, run it successfully,
the console shows "Textfield" (no exception or or any other messages), the output pdf file is created and shows the text "some start text" .

However the form-field (text box) is no where seen in the output pdf !!!
:roll:

PS: The code was picked up from iText Site

Thanks Ulf, clicked it, looks like an editable area. :-)
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
