Sterling Ledet is offering a class entitled “Using ColdFusion or Java with PDF files and eForms”. If you work with PDF files and forms check this out (select “ColdFusion – Using ColdFusion or Java with PDF files and eForms” from the drop down).
Ben, I am trying to use the iText class built into coldfusion to dynamically generate a PDF on the fly (cfdocument is way too limited). I have no problem setting the images at absolute positions, however when I try to set text at absolute positions using various methods, I get an error that says "Class coldfusion.runtime.java.JavaProxy can not access a member of class com.lowagie.text.pdf.PdfWriter with modifiers "protected". I am just trying to create a PDFtable and then set its absolute position (not alignment etc..).
I wish someone could answer this question because I am getting the same error. Unfortunatley, I need to place text at absolute positions also. HELP!
Sorry, I’ve never used the iText libraries myself, but it sounds like you are trying to access a method or property that you should not.
