Topic: Using FDF toolkit AX to enumerate form fields in vb6

Hi all,

I have a pdf with two text fields I added.

I have this code in vb6:

Dim FdfAcX As FDFACXLib.FdfApp

Set FdfAcX = CreateObject("FdfApp.FdfApp")
Dim fdf As FDFACXLib.FdfDoc
Set fdf = FdfAcX.FDFCreate

fdf.FDFSetFile "c:\pdf\\Application.pdf"

Dim field As String
field = fdf.FDFNextFieldName(field)
Do Until Len(field) = 0
Debug.Print field
field = fdf.FDFNextFieldName(field)
Loop

fdf.FDFSaveToFile "c:\pdf\Application.fdf"
fdf.FDFClose

Problem: I see no fields. The first call to NextFieldName
returns an empty string.

I thought that by using SetFile I would gain access to
the feilds in the PDF.

Am I wrong or am I doing something wrong?

My goal is to populate the PDF form fields with data.

Thanks,
kpg
