    Converting PHP/HTML Form Info into PDF Files

    Is there a way to convert the HTML form info, parsed with PHP, and convert it into a PDF file - all dynamically?

    A customer of mine wants all of his customer applications to be made downloadable to him in PDF files so he can add comments and notes and then print them out and send them off.

    I've looked online and found converters that do it on the users end but not dynamically.

    I had pretty good luck earlier this year using TCPDF for something like that.

    yes,
    I have used this program in the past.
    you'll basically create an html file and pass it as a parameter and it generates a PDF of it.

    I use a PDF converter driver found on the internet . Install it and it becomes a selectable converter option.Then you can convert PDFs to many forms in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat . Just open a PDF, select convert, and choice a form you want, then you can do pdf to html conversion and vice versa,the task will be finished in several seconds. if you havenīt found a good choice , you can have a try. best wishes.

    Hi, danny rough.
    Thanks for your nice info. I will try it later. Btw, do you have any good recommendation? Iam testing about the related conversion programs these days. Thanks in advance.
