Dynamically pre-populate a text field, Edit a PDF's XML source from a web form

Avatar

Level 1

How can a web-based PDF form be populated by data provided by users (from an HTML form) as the PDF form opens.

For example:

  • A user fills in an HTML web form.
  • User requests to open the PDF document.
  • When the PDF document is opened, its text fields will be populated with the data from the HTML form.

Can the PDF's XML Source be edited dynamically before the PDF document is opened?  How

Can open arguments be passed in a URL to dynamically populate the PDF document?  How

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Alan
