I was on google searching for tutorials on creating a pdf form I can inbed in a html or php page, then have it send to email using php.

I was reading up on fpdf: http://www.fpdf.org/

Is there any other websites that you would recommend to study so that I may accomplish the task at hand?

Thank-you :lol:

fpdf seems to be the best free library. There is a few html/javascript to pdf ways of doing this, so that might be worth a google.

Yes, FPDF is good. I've been using it for long time, and i'm satisfied. Consider using TFPDF (True-Font FPDF) if you need to use some non standard encoding

FPDF sounds great, but not quite what you're asking for. It sounds to me like you want to use Adobe Acrobat (not Reader) to create a form, embed that in a web page and then have the form submitted via email. Your user would download the form, open it with Adobe Reader, click the submit button, and that causes the form to be sent as POST data which your php script would pick up, convert to email and send off to you. I can show you how to do that, assuming you have Acrobat.

 

Otherwise, why would you even use pdf?
