I am trying to use PHP's FDF functions to populate multiple PDF forms and am having a little trouble getting started because I'm not sure if my Windows Server 2003 is set up for this or my php.ini settings (I'm not a server or settings expert by any means). From php.net/fdf I have found....
-Says I need the FDF toolkit from Adobe, no problem, I downloaded it but what the heck am I supposed to do with it?
-You must compile PHP with --with-fdftk[=DIR]. Does this just mean move the fdftk.dll into the system32 directory? or is there something else I need to do?
-Are there any dlls I need to enable in php.ini? I noticed there was an fdf.dll in there which is why I am asking.
I then write the resulting FDF file to a predetermined directory for later retrieval.
HOWEVER....When I open the FDF file via a URL, the corresponding PDF opens but the data is not populated. Any ideas? If you would like to see what I am talking about I can send a link for you to look at.
