          You could use AlivePDF to create PDF files inside Flex.

              Depends on what you mean by Templates, with AlivePDF what you can do is for instance add a DataGrid and create a PDF on the fly, but if you're running Coldfusion there you have your solution CF is great at creating PDFs.

                Have they gotten that "direct to drive file save" working that they said would be possible with Flash 10?


                Flash 9 version did this insane process where it uploads the pdf back to the server, and then streams it back to the client as a regular download. So the data was basically going over the wire three times back and forth. Terrible. I hope that can be avoided now?

                  What do you mean by "direct drive save"?

                    hi, I'm trying to just get this AlivePDF set up to try it out and use.


                    I am migrating a Flex 2 app to Flex3 specifically in order to use AlivePDF. I downloaded and installed the latest stable build of the Flex 3 SDK and have now compiled the Flex 2 app (of course with some changes).


                    I have tried to statically load the AlivePDF.swc (both the and 0.1.5 versions). I've used mxmlc with both a command line argument "library-path += " and by modifying the flex_config.xml file adding a new "path-element".


                    I've had the swc file both in a subdirectory of the application directory and in the same directory as the mxml file.


                    I keep getting a compile error that it can't open the file "...\AlivePDF.swc".


                    Help, anybody............
