I have a strange issue. When we generate a pdf and save it everything seems ok. For reference we save the pdf as a BLOB in MS SQL and the pdf is generated programmatically using .NET c# and the EO.PDF library.
The issue is when we open said pdf, then either down load or save as, there are various sections that every checkbox is selected instead of just the checkbox that should be. The opened pdf (from SQL) is fine, it's only when we then download or click save as this occurs.

Each checkbox is named different, and we programmatically set the value of the checked item to "1".

The only thing I can find has to do with Mac computers and using the Adobe Preview to generate pdfs, however; we are a Windows shop and as stated before we programmatically create the pdfs.

Any one have any ideas?

Hi,

Usually such issue occurs when you have multiple checkbox with the same name. However since you already said each checkbox is named different, so we are not sure what else to tell you. The only way for us to find out for sure is for you to isolate the problem into a test project so that we can debug it here. See here for more information about sending test project to us:

Thanks!

Just to close it out, seems the issue is default values in the fields in the pdf and specific to when the pdf is opened with a viewer in IE or Acrobat Reader.
