Subject Re: Check the feasibility of event handling on form fields
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2014 10:15:56 GMT
Thank you very much for your attention,

But in Java Swing there are methods like "actionPerformed" that fires
when the action is performed according to the event. But I couldn't
find such methods in PDFBox to perform that kind of tasks. Could you
please give me any directions for that?

Thank you!
