    The InputField report control in Page and RDLX reports provides support for editable fields in an exported PDF report where the InputField’s value can be modified. An exported editable PDF file is an AcroForm. See Creating AcroForm fields for details.

    The InputField report control can be one of the two types – Text and CheckBox, which you can choose in the InputType property. Each selected type has its own set of properties. In case of the Text type, the InputField control gets the set of properties of the TextBox control. If the CheckBox type is selected, then the control inherits the set of properties of the CheckBox control.

    Note: The InputField control is part of the Professional Edition. With the Standard license, the InputField control is not displayed in an exported file.
