I Have a custom built joomla componet that needs fixing. Dynamically populate a predefined PDF. I have seen this done with PDFTK. This PDF should then be emailed to the (registered) user and a system administrator. Also I want a webform saved as a file and also attached to the mail.

I have a custom built joomla component. Most of which is working the way I want. However one piece in the component is not working the way I want.
A registered user request quotes from the site if they accept the quote they fill out a lengthy application form. After they complete this form they must submit it.
It all works up until the “submit??.
The submit function should dynamically populate a PDF. The PDF to be populated will be a choice of two. The selection of which PDF to be populated should be randomly selected by the application.
The PDF's to be populated have a predefined format.
Values to be populated come from a DB table.
And a selection of values from the pre-mentioned lengthy form previously filled by the user.
This PDF should then be emailed to the (registered) user and a system administrator.
The present code tries to implement this functionality but unsuccessfully, I have seen this work with PDFTK (pdf-toolkit). It is important that the user can view the completed PDF file offline.
Both documents should be saved on the server and reference to them should be entered to the DB for future use/reference.
Also I want the lengthy form mailed to the user (word/pdf/other file format).
I need the solution Intergrated and set up on my server (hosting: virtual dedicated [url removed, login to view])
Ideally I would like to be taught how and what needs to be installed so that if needs be I can move from one server to another. Also I would like a brief and simple user guide on how to dynamically populate the PDF file allowing me to make modifications to the population of the PDF if required at a later date.
I am looking for a quick turnaround on this. I have a lot of other work that needs to done for this site; and will be open to using the same developer for all work; but this requirement is immediate.
Please ask if you have any questions.
