SI32 pdfSetTextFieldValue(
const PPDF* IPDF,

TTextAlign Align)
// Text alignment
The function sets or changes the value and default value of a text field. The parameters Value and
DefValue can both be NULL, if both values should be deleted. The parameter DefValue defines the
default value of the field, this value is shown in Adobe's Acrobat as long as the field has no value; it
will be hidden when entering the field.
The strings are drawn with the font that is associated with the field. The font size is taken from the
field settings. If set to “auto”, the font size is computed from the field’s bounding box.
This function is implemented in an Ansi and Unicode compatible version. Because interactive form
fields do not support Unicode, the strings must contain characters which are defined in the code
page 1252 or MacRoman.
