Hi All,

I have a form which takes different data based on different fields.

Once data is entered,it is saved on the database.

I want to develop application or button on form that once all data is entered, it will make PDF of that form and attach it to email.

Any help or guidance would be really helpful.

Regards,

Bhavik

Consider a PDF writer/printer like <a href=”http://www.cutepdf.com/”>CutePDF</a> or <a href=”http://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php”>BullzipPDF</a>.

Take a look at these screencasts:
<a href=”http://www.swingsoftware.com/pdf-converter/screencasts”>http://www.swingsoftware.com/pdf-converter/screencasts</a>

You can use it out-of-the-box (as a Notes toolbar add-on) or as an application component (a LotusScript API is provided). It doesn’t require a client side installation of a printer driver nor DLL files. It is delivered as a standard Lotus Notes NSF file. Here are some key advantages (from the <a href=”http://www.swingsoftware.com/pdf-converter/faq#Compare”>web site</a>):
<ul>
<li>Export multiple documents/emails at once</li><li>Include file attachments to resulting PDFs</li><li>Save collections of Notes documents/emails to self-contained PDF packages</li><li>Render Notes-specific design elements such as embedded views</li><li>Use original forms or create alternate page layouts using Domino Designer</li><li>Centrally deploy and manage through configuration documents</li><li>Add PDF capabilities to your applications using LotusScript API</li><li>Run the conversion on server for scheduled tasks or web-based applications</li>
</ul>
