I am a novice. I have searched the internet to find an example of programming language(s) that will allow me to load an PDF and let the user fill in or mark boxes, as needed (i.e., an inspection). However, I am not having any luck. This is probably not the right forum to address my request, but I'm hoping for some guidance, suggestions or reference to another forum that might be helpful. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What I have tried:

I read one of the articles from the Related Entries section, but it is from 2008. I'm hoping for something a little more recent and can be used across different platforms. To be honest, I don't know how to begin.

There are no languages that allow you to load a PDF, because that's not what languages do.

You need a library you can use in your application that can load the PDF and allow filling in boxes, like GdPicture.NET[^] or GrapeCity's library[^].

Which library you pick doesn't depend on the language so much as the application type, like Windows Forms, ASP.NET, WPF, ...

Google for "C# pdf library" for others, but if you need to fill in forms, don't expect the library to be free.
