use api directly from jquery ajax
wrote on 2013-10-14:
I have an ASP.NET C# webpage page that gathers dynamic information (not server side) using jquery ajax on page load ( on document ready). When these functions are complete and all html content is rendered and displayed, I would like to pass the finalized layout and html content to your api to generate a PDF. Is there a way to pass the finalized dynamic html and send it to pdfcrowd api using jquery ajax? Or is there another method i should be looking into? Perhaps I HAVE to build the the content server side to get get an html string to pass to the API?
Thanks for you support.

It is not possible to call the API from ajax at the moment. A workaround is to have an application running on your server that passes the string to the API, stores the generated PDF on the server and returns the URL to ajax.
