If there is some fields like the following, is there anyway (maybe using API or SDK) to get the position of the fields (for example left 47.52 pt, ...) and the name of the field (in this case Text1, Text2 and Text5)? I would like to export these information into a text document or XML.

You can do this using the JavaScript, IAC and plug-in APIs. It’s all in the SDK documentation.

Thankyou very much. Let me read through the SDK documentation carefully. As I am a beginner at this field, I might ask again later.
