I want to know is it possible to generate PDF file automatically at the background, I have adobe acrobat installed, usually this application is installed at client side, they can save as pdf file at local machine, however I want create pdf file from client side and save it to default server path, all process need to be run at background(client open a html file, click button to convert this page into pdf and save it on server), is it possible to do that?

Thanks for any comment.

While there are a number of ways to generate PDFs server-side in response to a web form, you cannot force PDF creation client-side. That would be going against the very nature of the web model.

Yeah...the actual conversion would have to take place on the server.
