TOPIC: Print Preview straight to PDF

Print Preview straight to PDF 1 year 3 weeks ago #99041

I am looking to make the user-experience a little different for our surveys. In short, I want to pull the PDF up instead of a "Print Preview". Is it possible to this?
  1. User goes through the survey
  2. User arrives at final pages and selects "Print Answers"
  3. User sees final PDF not print-print preview

Any ideas would be great, thanks so much!

Hi there
Your problem seems a little bit complicated.I'd like to suggest you add one of the pdf processing tool to help you out.There are many third party tool for pdf processing.Maybe that would be more convenient.

Quick javascript

$(document).ready(function(){
$('#print').click();
})

Not sure for the id of the print in pdf button, need to look at html code.

The way I do it is that I generate a report using R and odfWeave. If you need only pdf you can also use R and sweave. This is not a solution that you do in five minuts, but it is a good structural solution.
