Deletes a field by name.
This function deletes an interactive form field by using its full qualified name, that is the name of any parent group field separated by a period (.) plus the field name.
Check boxes of a radio button have no name. It is not possible to delete such a check box by using this function, use DynaPDF.DeleteField instead. However, the entire radio button can be deleted with this function.
