 Q: Is it possible to pass an XFA to a PDF form in order to populate the PDF form using PDFTron library? If not, are there any alternatives? Any other suggestions?

A:
 

PDFNet SDK offers a limited high-level support for XFA (i.e.Adobe LiveCycle) forms. Please keep in mind that XFA is a proprietary Adobe extension; it is not allowed as part of PDF/A and references to XFA may be removed as part of future ISO 32000-2 etc. As a possible solution your users could re-save PDF document with AcroForm/PDF compatibility in Adobe LifeCycle-Designer. After resaving the document using LifeCycle- Designer you will be able to render and process the file using PDFNet.

 

For more background and some thoughts on XFA Forms please see:

Please keep in mind that you can use PDFNet SDK to create/extract/edit PDF files with XFA (see https://groups.google.com/d/msg/pdfnet-sdk/zgoiXfCf_bU/ktXNzkpTspkJ). It is also possible to implement custom controls on top of PDFViewCtrl so technically you could implement your own XFA support on top of PDFNet.
