Introduction

Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 extended the reach of InfoPath forms by offering the ability to fill out forms through a web browser without requiring the InfoPath client application to be installed on the users' computers. Such forms are called web-based forms and are created using browser-enabled form templates that are published to a SharePoint server running InfoPath Forms Services.

The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a popular and widely used format for sharing, displaying, and printing documents. There is a free add-in available, 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF, which integrates with the InfoPath client application to allow users to export a view from a form to PDF. You can also use the InfoPath 2007 object model to programmatically export the current view of a form to PDF. However, both these options are not available for web-based forms. This article presents a technique that will enable you to convert web-based forms to PDF and allow users to display, save, and print web-based forms as PDF documents.
