Topic: XMP and VB.NET

Hello,

I've been able to open, populate, and print an Adobe .pdf form from VB.NET.

However, the example that I have requires me to know the structure of the form. I'd like to be able to "read" the structure of the form and populate it on the fly from a database. If I'm understanding what they mean by metadata, I believe that XMP would be the technology to use to do this.

However, it appears that XMP only supports C++, is this correct?

I don't need to be able to save changes to the form, and since my user's workstations won't have Acrobat writer, I'd be unable to do this anyway.

-Eric
