Creating a pdf from a button click with form input

Hi all,

 

I've built a form with a repeating section. The repeating section has numerous data fields that users fill out with information about nonconforming products. This will include things such as product lot numbers, a unique identifier to look up the incident, and identifying information about the nonconforming products (i.e., the nature of the non-conformance, the quantity which is non-conforming, etc.). 

 

My users have requested for me to build a way for them to generate a short PDF report based upon the information they have input; however, they don't need all of the info from the repeating section.

 

I had hoped to be able to do this using jsPDF. However, I'm finding it less malleable than I would like for my needs. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. 

 

The main issue I've been running into with jsPDF is that there doesn't seem to be a way to store the user input data from the repeating section as a Javascript variable to be sent to jsPDF to generate a new document. My attempts to do this have resulted in errors stating that a string or array is required, and the value of the input cannot be stored due to being  undefined. 

 

Any help would be appreciated! I've been lurking for a while and gotten a lot of amazing tips from here. The community is truly fantastic.
