We’re using JPedal library – current version – with our Java Swing webstart application. We’re using the PDF viewer to display PDFs with form fields that are defined in the server side of our application. The form fields have been defined as multi-line fields – which then supports word wrap within the width of the field. The question/problem – is that when viewing the PDF in Adobe Acrobat, and more text has been entered than will fit within the existing vertical size of the form field – Acrobat automatically adds a vertical scrollbar to let the user continue to type additional lines of text. With the JPedal PDF viewer, on the other hand, once the vertical extent of the form field has been reached, the user can’t enter any more text – and a vertical scroll bar doesn’t appear.
Question – is there an option, API call, etc. – to enable vertical scrollbars on multi-line form fields – either appearing automatically as needed, or always enabled?
Thanks very much,
The appearance of a scrollbar is specified by the form in the PDF Please submit a bug report with the file showing this behaviour attached for us to test so we can determine why this is happening.
