Print script for server

Your post

For months I have been working on a project that requires a printable pdf from a browser after a lot of calculations.

 

The calculations are easy compared to generating the pdf from a server in a browser.  Finally bought FMStudio and the books and the pdf module and I am more then a month into it and sort got part of it working.  I can make it work on the development machine but when I try serving on different servers the graphics do not show on the pdf.  And filemaker has a better way (very complex in line css) of presentation when a pdf is generated.  I have got to assume it comes down to a license issue with adobe???  Also, currently FMStudio is for the most part they are unresponsive.

 

Now I am thinking about throwing all that I have done away and will try the idea of a slave box with Filemaker for printing the pdf - then server up the finished pdf.

 

*****   Can someone out their help me with the code / scripting / even the best concept of someone who has done it before.   There seems to be a lot of people in the same boat.  Even some code to get me started???  How do I trigger the slave box???  ******

 

If the newer versions had the answer I would buy what is needed today!  But it seems the issue was not addressed.

 

FMSA9 on windows 2003 server , FMA10, FMA9 and all clients on xp with FM8.5 or better
