I am trying to add Cyrillic text into pdf field, but I failed. I found solutions on google but that doesn't work in my case.
using (FileStream outFile = new FileStream("result.pdf", FileMode.Create))
    PdfReader pdfReader = new PdfReader("zapisnik-fillable.pdf");
    PdfStamper pdfStamper = new PdfStamper(pdfReader, outFile);
    AcroFields fields = pdfStamper.AcroFields;

    fields.SetField("team_a_name", "mzt");
    pdfStamper.FormFlattening = true;


Now I want to setField from mzt into МЗТ, I tried it with creating a paragraph with Cyrillic font, but got an error, because SetField() second argument is string not IText item.team_a_name is field in my pdf document. When I write a Cyrillic using Adobe Acrobat everything is okay, but using ITextSharp getting empty line.

What I have tried:

I have answers from Stackoverflow but they add new Paragraph, in this case I just want to add a string into existing field (fields.SetField("fieldname","value");
What is the error?

I get empty field

Have a look at this -[^].

Basically it is to make sure you handle the Unicodes properly while converting to PDF.

Yes, I read this reference link, but I didn't find anything helpful in it. Can you show me an example with my code, what should look like?

Also I don't need to parse it from html to pdf, I just want to edit value of the field!
