tools to create [inter]-active PDF forms


PDF has features for inter-active forms. These forms have live check boxes and radio buttons, pull-down lists for selections and text boxes for data entry. Lastly, there is a SUBMIT button that causes the form data to get sent for "processing" any of some number of ways.

I can use various tools to create a page that looks like a form.
I can add interactive elements to HTML pages.
I can add interactive elements to OpenOffice documents.
I can use other tools and make that page into a PDF document.

Q1: Which tools let me add these interactive elements to PDF forms? (I know there are Adobe(tm) tools available.)

I think you can do this with Scribus, but haven't tried it.

... can someone confirm this?

Can someone who really knows Scribus confirm or deny that it can create and manipulate interactive PDF-forms?
