I have been asked to create a Director project which would
present the user a form which allows him/her to select a number of
pages from a list of available page, enter the data to be included
on those pages via text boxes (or similar), and select a pdf file
located on the users hard drive to be appended to the pages
selected above. Once the user has selected the pages, entered the
content, and selected the appendix, the projector would then
combine those items into a single pdf file which the user could
save to his/her desktop (or elsewhere).
I hope the above makes sense. My first question is, how would
I go about creating this ability to edit and create pdf files (if
possible)? My second question is, does Director have some basic
spreadsheet functionality (cells and calculations for example)? My
third question is, can the Projector file in turn email the
resulting pdf document or would we have to require the user to use
their email software of choice after the fact? And finally, is
there a technology better suited to this than Director (Flash or
Cold Fusion perhaps)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
PS: If anybody knows of any online sites with something
similar, I'd appreciate a link so that I can take a look at
