Topic: AcroForm Field Coordinates with IAC

Hello, fellow PDFers!

Perhaps I'm overlooking something obvious, but I can't seem to find any way using OLE to determine the coordinates and/or size of existing AcroForm fields. The only place coordinates are mentioned at all seems to be in the Fields.Add method, where you can supply them for initial creation. But there seems to be no corresponding property to let your host program determine the coordinates on a field once it exists. Surely I'm not the only person in the world who could really use this kind of information about existing form fields?!

Any ideas or suggestions about some sort of workaround (other than printing out each form and manually measuring each field!) would be greatly appreciated.
