Adding editable text boxes to PDF document

Hi,

 

I need to add editable text boxes (actual text boxes with a name, not just ‘drawn’ text boxes) to a PDF document generated by FOP.

 

The xmlgraphics web site seems to suggest that this is possible using extensions, like in the example of adding JAVA script to open a search box

( http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/dev/design/extending.html ).

 

I did some research and all discussions seem to say that this is ‘impossible’. Didn’t anyone ever implement such an extension?

Is it not possible to create editable forms with FOP?

 

Thanks,

 

Werner
