Topic: Add a new page to a FDF file using PHP and javascript

My program is doing that : the user fills an HTML forms, then at the end, he can get a FDF file, fulled of data.
On my server, I'm using the FDF Toolkit, PHP, html and javascript .

This is running well, but there another thing I've to do : if the user fill more than one "block", another page based on the first one must me added.. And this can be possible many times ... perhaps 10 ! So I wont create 10 times the same page, with fields named differently ... It's a big big work for nothing.

I have tested it with Adobe Acrobat (the writer) : It works (Create a template, then with a javascript, you can add pages...).

this function add another page (for example if you submit a button) :
var oTemplate;
oTemplate = this.getTemplate("NAME_OF_THE_TEMPLATE");
oTemplate.spawn(this.numPages, true, false);

And it's working..

But how can I use this code with PHP to make another page ?

Please, can you give me a response by mail ?
Thank you
