Topic: Looking for PDF library/toolkit
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 117136

I am looking for a PDF library/toolkit (preferably .Net native) for manipulation of existing PDF files.

Particularly, I am looking for ability to code:
1. Create (content and properties)
2. Delete
3. Modify (content and properties)
4. Read (content and properties)
of the following PDF document features:
Form fields
JavaScript code

It is important to be able to undo the earlier made changes. For example, if a watermark was added using the library, there should be a capability to remove at later time this watermark programmatically using the library. The same applies to all the above-mentioned features.

Also if the library can support a visual presentation (browsing) of PDF documents from within a custom .Net application, that would be a very welcomed feature.

If anybody knows a library that is capable of providing the requested capabilities, please let me know. I would be also interested in a library that satisfies some of the requirements, but the ability to create/delete/modify form fields is critical.
