Is it possible to have a PDF form that can be emailed using Coldfusion or is there another way?

I'm wondering if it's possible to have a pdf form that can be filled out and then emailed? Maybe Coldfusion is not necessary?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you need Adobe Acrobat (full version) LiveCycle Designer to create fillable forms (called FDF's ). CF8 can manipulate these  but i believe you can't create them in CF

The alternative is to use a standard html form, submit the info, format as you like then use <cfdocument format="pdf"> to create the pdf and use cfmail to mail it

a basic outline


<form action="index.cfm" method="post">
<input type="text" name="t1">
<input type="submit">
</form>

<cfif isdefined('form.t1')>
<cfsavecontent variable="myDoc">
<html>
--whatever--
#form.t1#
</html>
</cfsavecontent>

<cfdocument format="pdf" filename="pathtofolder\test.pdf">
#MyDoc#
</cfdocument>

<cfmail...>

</cfif>
