powershell and itext fill text into pdf template RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have to write a script which fill automatically some data into source PDF template and save as another file. But when I load g.xml the form is empty it is powershell script

    Add-Type -Path “C:\temp\itextsharp.dll”
    $reader = New-Object iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfReader -ArgumentList “C:\temp\iike.pdf"
    $stamper = New-Object iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfStamper($reader,[System.IO.File]::Create("c:\temp\vvv44445.pdf"),7,"$true")

    g.xml looks

    <subform locale="pl_PL" name="Deklaracja" xmlns="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-form/2.8/">
      <instanceManager name="_Strona1" />
      <subform name="Strona1">
        <instanceManager name="_Naglowek" />
        <subform name="Naglowek">
          <field name="NIP1">
            <value override="1">
