The Bible King James Version and Modern Translations (NIV, ESV, NLT, ASV)

I always knew there were some missing verses in modern Bible translations when compared to the King James Version (KJV), but never really knew what those verses were, nor bothered to do some research on them. It was until a few weeks back that I intentionally took the task upon myself to do that research and compare modern Bible translations to the KJV.

Flatten PDF Form Fields with iTextSharp – Two Methods – ASP.NET

I will show two methods to flatten editable form fields in a PDF file. Method 1 is true form flattening and method 2 is just making the editable fields read only. Personally I was using method 1 for some time, however in some instances (more specifically when merging images into a PDF file and messing with the editable fields), this specific method would throw an error upon opening the PDF file in Adobe Reader stating that Acrobat may not display the page correctly, however I never noticed anything wrong with the PDF file, everything was being displayed correctly, but this “error” was kinda annoying, so I opted to change the code a bit to make all the fields Read Only instead of flattening the form.

Below is the code to perform both, flatten the form and make all the fields Read Only.
