    create pdf on the fly using c# .net

    Guys

    I have an web application which collects customer data and I need to produce pdf documents containing this data.

    I believe that I can somehow create a pdf template with place holders and simply produce the document that way but I don't know how to go about it.

    Any advice?

    Cheers

    There's also the iTextSharp library. See my signature for a link.

    Thanks guys. Am I right in saying that I need to create a pdf template in adobe 3d and use place holders where we want the variables to be populated then use iTextSharp (or Shuja Ali's suggestion) to read the document in and populate the document?

    If so, does anyone know if it is definitely Adobe 3D that I need - is there a cheaper option!!? (Adobe 3D weighs in at just under a thousand quid).

    I don't believe that that is the case, although I've never used iText# myself. The download page has some tutorials you can download, so that would presumably answer your question.
