We currently generate multiple documents as pdfs using the renderas="pdf" functionality for VisualForce pages, however this creates a read-only pdf. We would like to integrate some of these generated PDFs into our eSignatures application which requires them to be PDF forms. Is there a way to render the VisualForce page as a PDF form and spcify the form field names? I tried putting both html form tags and apex form tags in the markup for the VisualForce page but didn't have any luck with either approach. Any suggestions?
I saw this blog post about using forms in Salesforce:
How do I figure out the field names for the forms? Say I download W2 form from the web, Is there a tool that tells me the field names from this form, so I could plug into the XFDF?
Also is it possible to generate a pdf form using visualforce? Not an attachment of an existing form, but a form from scratch, so it has certain editable fields and certain read-only values populated using data from Salesforce?
Thanks in advance,
