Creates an action for resetting PDF form fields.

Syntax

LONG CreateResetFormAction ()
Return value
Index of the created action.

Remarks

CreateResetFormAction allows users to reset form fields in a PDF document. Use AddControlToAction to associate edit fields with this action and reset the fields. A Reset Form action resets selected PDF controls to their default values. The default value is the value of the control at time the PDF document was created.

The return value is an action identifier in the document's actions collection and can be used in AddControlToAction, OpenDocumentAction, PDFANNOTATION_OnBeforeFormatting, PDFANNOTATION_OnChange, PDFANNOTATION_OnKeyPress, PDFANNOTATION_OnSetFocus, PDFANNOTATION_OnLostFocus, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseDown, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseUp, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseEnter, PDFANNOTATION_OnMouseExit, PDFANNOTATION_OnOtherControlChanged, PDFPAGE_SetAction, PDFANNOTATION_Action, PDFOUTLINENODE_Action.

Equivalent in new interface: IPDFDocument4::CreateResetFormAction.
