I'm in the process of doing some kind of hack in order to extend jasper
to support PDF form fields.
In order to keep things compatible with existing tools (ie ireport) I
decided to implement it using ordinary textfields and parsing their
content for specific patterns in order to decide what to do with them.
The content is retrieved using JRPrintText.getText().
So that's where my problem is: If the text content exceeds the given
boundaries, JRPrintText.getText() returns only the visible part of the
text content and thus my pattern to decide if this is a PDF form
Is there some method to retrieve the "raw" value from a textfield?
