Is there a way to change Font name using Itextsharp.  I can set fieldname or rename it, but I can't figure it out how to set font name and size.  


Dim field As PdfFormField = PdfFormField.CreateTextField(stamp.Writer, False, False, 50)
             
                field.SetWidget(New iTextSharp.text.Rectangle(box position), PdfAnnotation.HIGHLIGHT_INVERT)
                field.SetFieldFlags(PdfAnnotation.FLAGS_PRINT)
                field.FieldName = "my fieldname"
                stamp.AddAnnotation(field, 1)

I tried it.  It still won't change fontname in field properties for my textbox.

        pdfStamper.AcroFields.SetFieldProperty("Text1", "textfont",
fieldFontRoman, null);

How can I set fontname ?


public void CreateTextBoxMethod2()
{
    Document _document = new Document();
    PdfReader reader = new PdfReader(Server.MapPath(P_InputStream));
    using (Document document = new Document())
    {
        using (PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.GetInstance(document, new FileStream(Server.MapPath(P_OutputStream), FileMode.Create)))
        {
            document.Open();
            PdfContentByte cb = writer.DirectContent;

}

Honestly, I don't know what the problem is. I looked through some posts and people advise to play with field properties like auto resizing etc.

I appreciated your help. I have been playing with field properties, but still can't figure it out how to set fontname.

   PdfFormField _Field1 = PdfFormField.CreateTextField(writer, false, false, 50);
            _Field1.SetWidget(new iTextSharp.text.Rectangle(40, 100, 160, 130),PdfAnnotation.APPEARANCE_NORMAL);
            _Field1.SetFieldFlags(PdfAnnotation.FLAGS_PRINT);
            _Field1.FieldName = "t1";
