    The PDF file you are seeing is created so you can print out. once that is open within your browser (and assuming you have a version of Adobe that allows you to save) you can technically do anything you want with it, but if you are looking to forward this onto another person, you can do this within Perfectforms anyway by utilising the ‘workflow’ functionality and notify to another person for them to access/view or even update that form information. In terms of integrating with another application, look at the Connection Agent module where you can read information from/write out to a range of databases, and also how Webservices are supported as well which can be used to interact with other applications.

    no.. you won’t be able to do this. the PDF is created as a seperate ‘instance’ and is for you to be able to print. it is Separate to the form itself and so can’t be used in this way. but the form itself, you can send on to other people, and with the connection agent/weberver you can pass the data out to other databases/applications as you require

    Sorry.. I’ve no idea what you are referring to ? what is ‘client space’ for instance

    if you want to send the form to another person for them to view the form and its data (where they can then as well ‘print’ the form if required), this is what the Workflow routing functions can do for you

    The training videoes here:

    http://www.perfectforms.com/training.php

    and maybe specifically the workflow video

    http://www.perfectforms.com/TutorialVideos/Workflow_Rules_109/Workflow_Rules_109/Workflow_Rules_109.htm

    as well as the user guides are worth having a look at

    ijobling,

    What i exactly need is the PDF file (printed) to be placed on a server machine by dynamically creating a folder on the server and storing PDF in that folder. So from here users can view this form data.

    I don’t want to send the form or its data to anybody(which can be printed). I just want some users to access this PDF with out viewing or printing the form on perefectforms again. Can be this be done in any way?

    If the printed PDF can’t be accessed or moved to any website is there way to generate same PDF with form’s data and store it at a website.

    Once the ‘print’ function has been called and you are seeing the form in your browser within your adobe controls, there isn’t anything stopping you from saving this form away as you require (go to File | Save as)

    My requirements are

    1. I should be able to create a folder programatically either in perfectform server or in our local server.

    2. After creating the folder I should able to save the generated PDF in this folder programatically and not with Save As option.

    Another question, if I have to create the folder in our server through perfectforms, how can I do that?

    We create this pdf file to support the requirement that users have to print form information out. It is not designed to be able to be ‘saved’ programatically.

    Having said that, check to see if the Perfectforms API is what you require here:

    As far as I understand such functionality does not exist out of the box. You have to develop it yourself or order it to someone.

    Hard to say really. are you looking at using the API or perhaps a webservice? depending what method you are using will allow you to use a variety of options. if you may be considering a webservice, do have a look at the sample forms for this that are available here:
