Could someone please outline the steps I would need to take to create a PDF from a button? The situation is that a user wants to create a PDF of the current .aspx page with a button. I have installed the CutePDF software but I do no know what steps it will take to make this happen. Any code would be appreciated.
I did look at the other posts were very high level and I need to be enlightened on some of the basics. Thanks.
1. Find a third party API to create PDFs via code (Cute PDF?)
2. Find documentation for that API. this?
3. Use that API, call it from your code. Test it out. Experiment.
4. Figure out what on your current page needs to be converted. You will need to pass the PDF a string of HTML, I believe, which it will then convert to PDF format. Where is this HTML, what is it in, is it in controls, how will you get it out?
