    Is it Possible for PDF to render Links

    Asked by cgnz on June 21, 2012 at 05:17 AM



    Very quickly, is it possible for PDF's to render links?

    Currently I generate a PDF and it shows the link in text.

    Been keen to know if there is a way for the URL to display as a link.

    Please check this form.

    You can see, I made a link out of the label.When I generate the PDF file, the link text was retain and clickable. 

    Was this what you meant on your inquiry? Please inform us if it is not the answer to your inquiry.

    Ho Jonathan.


    Meant as in the PDF that is produced when a form is submitted.


    IE: If I submit a form it creates a the link that generates a PDF. Can that PDF record of the submission render links.


    In tother words, it is after the form not part of the form (if that makes sense)

    sorry for my delay... I have been trying to figure it out. =)

    I cannot find yet the means to generate pdf link after submit. 

    But if you test the form again, I created the thank you page with a link to the pdf report of the form submission.

    The pdf is generated by using the Get PDF button in submission report

    Please update us if it still is not the answer. =)
