Has anyone any experience with creating a PDF form from a webform?
My idea is to have webform with several textboxes on it that will be filled out and a submit button. Once the submit button is pressed, the server will create a PDF file of the contents of the textboxes.
However, the PDF will be one that I have already created with Acrobat PDF designer that has fillable fields in it. I want those webform textboxes to correspond with the textboxes in the PDF template. There will be a webform textbox for name, and the content
that the user inputs should auto fill into the PDF fillable field name. The server will do this for all textboxes in the webform and the fields in the PDF, and create the PDF to send to a email address, or save the the location on the server of choice. Is
this at all possible?

My company has done this using ABC PDF. You create the web form, save the values for each field is a session object, then tell ABC PDF to print that url. It will then stream a new PDF to the browser of a instance of the URL. If you use ABC PDF, you will
need to add a querystring that generates random numbers. If you don't somehow change the URL with each call, the page is cached and you have bad data.
