    Hi itextsharp guys!!!

    i want 2 create n application where forms r not fixed, in d sense dat, d other day, admin can upload cmpletely new forms for the others 2 fill(it means no DB table can be used to save every info)
    while registering user will fill some details. if ny PDF form has dose fields to fill it will be filled automatically and oders will be filled manually by d user(in the form showing in browser).

    i m using "itextsharp".

    now problem is dat, i can fill d values from backend(coz m keeping d name of acro form fields same s DB table fields, so can map b/w them) but what about oder fields. i mean if i show the PDF on browser, it is dere for every1 2 c n 1 can also fill d textboxes but "HOW 2 FETCH D VALUES DAT IS FILLED IN THESE TEXTBOXES PROGRAMATICALLY"???

    for ex, like v've in ASP.net,
    String strName=txtName.Text;

    so i want equivalent of dis line using "itextsharp"...

    i know, u'll say dat v've "AcroFields.GetField()" function is there, but this is to get the value from d field once a form is saved with value. i want to have a way by which i can fetch d value from the control dat is filled by d user 8  d time.....

    (currently showing d PDF form in iframe, i know this way its IMPOSSIBLE to achieve wat i want, so wat 2 do n HOW 2 DO??)

    my description here may b a mesh, but problem is REALLLLY importaqnt for me....

    can describe furder wid my piece of code, if required...

    hope 2 listen from u SOOOOOON...

    THNX IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!
