Looking for a simple example that Loads a PDF and has the ability to click on a form and fill it out.

Hi Morty,


here's your starting point to all resources regarding the QuickPDF-library and other Debenu stuff:
http://www.quickpdf.org/

Here you can see how to get inserted formfield content out of a pdf form:
https://www.debenu.com/kb/programmatically-extract-form-field-data-pdf-files/

Here you can see how to create new form fields:
https://www.debenu.com/kb/create-pdf-form-fields-programmatically/

Here you can see how to flatten the form field content to convert it to regular pdf content:
https://www.debenu.com/kb/programmatically-flatten-form-fields-pdf-using-debenu-quick-pdf-library/

Here you can see how to delete all form fields:
https://www.debenu.com/kb/programmatically-delete-all-form-fields-in-a-pdf/

Here you're getting ideas how to read form field content:

Cheers and welcome here,

Thank you for your response.
Just getting back into this now:

The links you provided me help me understand how to fill form data programmatically, as well as create fields programmatically. But I am more interested in having the ability to have the end user view the PDF and fill the form out themselves.

Is there PDF rendering technology for Android available?
Can a end user fill out a form? and save the PDF with this library?

Hi Morty,

strange question... ;-)
For this you should try the Foxit PDF Reader.
It does what you want and costs nothing.
QuickPDF can't do this with ready made functions like you described.

Cheers,
Ingo
