Plugin to fill/retrieve PDF fields
This plugin allows to fill fields from PDF documents and export the result in a new file. The plugin is also able to extract all the fields' content of a given PDF.
On Android, the plugin is using the iTextPDF v5 library and is compatible with all Android versions (API 16+).
On iOS, the plugin is using PDFKit and is thus limited to iOS 11.
How it works
This plugin has two features :
- Read the content of a PDF file and extract all the fields with their values
- Fill the fields of a PDF and export the result in a new file (always in the filesystem)
The Dart API allows you to pick a file from :
- the Flutter project resources,
- the app resources (Android/iOS),
- or the filesystem
On Android, please add the following permissions to your
// Only required if you want to read the content of PDF stored in the filesystem <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" /> // Only required if you want to create a PDF in the filesystem <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
