    Question Printing in PHP

    Hi, i am relativly new to php.

    I am trying to create a form on my website that people can use to apply for a job. However, because of security reasons i dont want it sent over the internet. Instead i would like them to fill out the form and print it out straight away. Is this possible?

    I would appreciate any suggestions

    Many thanks

    Do you know how to get the results to appear on the page after submitting the form?

    You normally use
    PHP Code:
    $_POST['$input']; 
    or
    PHP Code:
    $_GET['$input']; 
    Then use javascript to call the print command - http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/jsprint.html

    Since PHP is a server-side scripting language, any information submitted in the form would be sent over the internet back to the server. The only way to prevent this would be to have them fill the form out and print it just as it appears on-screen with the input boxes and everything.

    Thankyou all for your suggestions, i think i will just use a pdf file which they can print out.

    Thanks again.

    You can have PHP scripts write the input into a PDF file.
