I need to display an existing PDF with fillable form fields, allow the customer to change these fields, and then save the PDF document (no user intervention on the save).  Is it possible to use this as a viewer?

You should be able to write a program to do something like this if you use a supported compiler and already have a copy of the QuickPDF library.  If you do not have the library already, you may no longer be able to purchase it, because Foxit have declared its 'end of life'.

I do have the library but needing some direction on how to view the PDF, edit the form fields and then save without user intervention during the save.

Hi Kristin :)

Making a simple pdf-viewer isn't difficult.
The simplest way is to convert each pdf-page on the fly into an image and display this image.
Maintaining form fields one way or repeatedly... save and/or flatten... that's difficult stuff and i won't dare a try with QuickPDF to do this.
In the past there was a pdf viewer sdk available besides QuickPDF - but that's the past.
Sorry... no answer you wanna read but... ;-)

Cheers and welcome here,
Ingo
