we are using SetFormFieldValue to fill in PDF forms automatically (these are social security forms here in Luxemburg).
This works fine for normal text-fields, but some fields don't work. For example this is waht the field looks like if filled using Adobe Reader:
This is what it looks like filled using SetFormFieldValue (value: "123456789012345").
As you can see, the numbers are not filled into the reserved spaces.
I also attached the whole PDF (the one filled using GdPicture SetFormFieldValue).
A second problem is checkboxes inside the form. We used GetFormFieldValue to extract the values of these on a filled out form and then tried to set them on a new form using SetFormFieldValue. No success there either. If you look at the attached PDF in the bottom, there should be one checkbox checked, but none of them are.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The SetFormFiledValue function has been fixed some times ago and work as expected in the last version (actually 188.8.131.52)
the SetFormFieldChecked function must be prefered to setup check boxes

Hope this help
In the required pdf-taxforms we have to use, there are some calculations and some formatting done after filling in certain fields.
When I use SetFormFieldValue to set those fields, the formatting (or calculation) doesn´t work. Is there a workaround?
but when we try to set the value nothing happens.
what could be the reason for that?
(We are using GdPicture 14)
