Okular Form Field auto-updating (Work In Progress)

You can see it in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCLFkpaW3Ug

As the description of the YouTube video says:

Form 14 updates from Form 13 values as defined by the PDF file.
There's a few bugs left:
* To make the page contents update i need to edit another form in the page of the form that is being auto updated
* The contents of the "editable" Form are not updated. (The form is actually not editable since it's readonly)

And also a pile of uncommited and unreviewed patches, and probably only works for very simple files like this one, but it's a start :)


Update: It works fine now and everything has been commited :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-zmHc3WUhs

I had problem with accent charactes like čťžýáľ in forms.

I have problem using Cyrillic letters. They disappear from form field.

That's a known bug, i don't see what it has to do with this blog post.
