Form results to PDF

Post by jeff11214 » Tue Aug 14, 2018 6:16 pm

I have a form that does calculations and when submitted the results show on the page.
Is there a way to have the results as PDF file and either emailed or stored in a folder?
My preference is PDF sent to email, but either option will do.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

There is no standard solution for this. This requires a third party script .

For example:
https://github.com/mpdf/mpdf
http://www.fpdf.org/
https://tcpdf.org/

You could easily create a PDF form instead, with a 3rd party program called PDFill (https://www.pdfill.com/)

A user can fill out the form on-line, and print it out once completed. You may also include a 'Submit' button which would either email the completed PDF form to someone, or send just the results as a CSV file.

I have a membership application form which does exactly that, and works great. Calculations are also possible.
