Fill PDF Forms

A library to programatically identify and fill out PDF forms.

WARNING: This is a fork of the original "pdf_form" crate made by jsandler18, including all improvements made by malte-v.

Example Code

Read a PDF and discover the form fields

extern crate pdf_form;
use pdf_form::{Form, FieldType};

// Load the pdf into a form from a path
let form = Form::load("path/to/pdf").unwrap();
// Get all types of the form fields (e.g. Text, Radio, etc) in a Vector
let field_types = form.get_all_types();
// Print the types
for type in field_types {
    println!("{:?}", type);
};

Write to the form fields

extern crate pdf_form;
use pdf_form::{Form, FieldState};

// Load the pdf into a form from a path
let mut form = Form::load("path/to/pdf").unwrap();
form.set_text(0, String::from("filling the field"));
form.save("path/to/new/pdf");
