Printing forms on web using filemaker data

Experts, I have created an online version of a Filemaker DB using Filemaker API PHP. After a user fills out a form I would like them to be able to print the results from the web.

Currently I have set up the form print as html/php with mixed results. Some computers print the form fine, others not as expected.

What is the best way to print online forms? Is it possible for Filemaker to create a PDF to display instantly on the web after the form is filled out to print?

printing from filemaker php is the same headache as printing from any php application.
and no the native pdf can't be used from the php side.

You could try to use the PDF library in PHP and generate your PDF documents on the fly. Here's the link for docs on PDFLib: http://ca3.php.net/manual/en/book.pdf.php

and here's another option: http://www.fpdf.org/
