I just told a client we couldn't do something, and then my boss showed me a PDF that does it!
We use ActivePDF Toolkit and Cold Fusion to take some data from a database, fill in a PDF form, and present it to the user on our website. The user then checks/changes the field values and prints the form.
Our client wanted some of the fields required, so that they couldn't print unless those fields were filled in. I told her we couldn't do that. Then later my boss showed me https://www1.fs.ml.com/publish/coe.pdf, which has some interesting features:
1 An alert that pops on leaving a field, if it's not filled out properly.
2 A button to print the form, inside the form itself.
I tried to download this PDF, so I could see the code behind the controls, but to my surprise
