Sorry i havent fulled out the form but -

if it is a pdf you are editing:
I believe that this is not an asp.net thing -  they have used the full version of acrobat to alter the document to allow it to be edited -  even though it is online the browser is just a container for acrobat pdf viewer - jsut as if you where viewing it.

if you have fulled out a form on aspx page and a pdf report is generated:
you can use something like : http://report.sourceforge.net/ - c# class library for creating pdf files which can be sent to a browser while user is online

If you want to build PDF on the fly inn asp.net you can do that using ABCPDF from http://www.websupergoo.com.
