ADDING UI Element to Interactive Form at RUNTIME

Hi All

We have a requirement to create our Interactive Form on the fly at runtime.

The end user shall have the choice of selecting the fields to be displayed on the form.

I have gone throught the API provided for the PdfObject, and have not found any classes that encapsulate the functionality of any UI elements.

Could someone please tell me, if it is possible to add UI elements to an interactive form at runtime or not ?

If yes, how can it be achieved ?

Regards

Areesh

    Hi, I dont think its possible or other way round I'll say I have never done this type of development.

    Please let us know if you are able to do this.

    PS: Maximum you may handle the layout dynamically at run time through scripting.

    That's one of the most ridiculous requirements I think I have heard of. Sure you haven't misunderstood the end need there?

    In any event, I think your only choice would be scripting to show/hide selected fields based on the users selections....however, those fields/elements would not be possible to just be "free form".
