How we export a html form to pdf using only pure javascript..NOt OTHER languages.I don't wanted to add any plugins/libraries to my code

1 solution

Try this..!!!!!

// Example javascript script to convert the
// web page to a PDF file

var conv = new ActiveXObject("pdfServMachine.converter");
conv.convert("", "c:\\google.pdf", false);
WScript.Echo("finished conversion");

or try this..if u dnt want javascript

here is a code snippet to convert a local html file to pdf.
URL url = new File("test.html").toURI().toURL(); WebClient webClient = new WebClient(); HtmlPage page = webClient.getPage(url); OutputStream os = null; try{ os = new FileOutputStream("test.pdf"); ITextRenderer renderer = new ITextRenderer(); renderer.setDocument(page,url.toString()); renderer.layout(); renderer.createPDF(os); } finally{ if(os != null) os.close();

or try this will work....

Client Side - Minimum Code:
(NOT RECOMMENDED) security of reading / writing on client can prohibit client side generation

html = new html$()
pdf = new pdf$();

html.parse("<B> Hello World</B>");


Server Side - Minimum ASP Code:

<%@ language=javascript%>
<script SRC="collinsPdf.js" language="JavaScript" runat="Server"></script>
<script SRC="collinsHtml.js" language="JavaScript" runat="Server"></script>
   html = new html$();
   pdf = new pdf$();

   html.parse("The Date is: <b><i>" + new Date() + "</i></B>");
