FPDF is a PHP class which allows you to generate PDF files, and does not depend on additional PHP libraries. FPDF is free and can be downloaded from the of. There are plenty of situations were a dynamic PDF document is a great way to solve problems, too. Using PHP it's possible generate those PDF files. I have a "vitecek.info" page. If the user submits all the required fields, then my page prints "thank you for your submission". However, I am trying to make it where.
I have this question for you because you mentioned the creation of invoices in your comment. What if you need to open an almost ready PDF file which is made by some other company? Sure you can create HTML code for these pages too, but do you get one single file if you need to edit only page 2 and 5 from 8 pages? All the php to pdf librarys are great to work with only if you are not intending on creating active forms. You can use FDF for this: Give it a try an share your experience if you like.
I did write a svg to pdf convertor a long time ago that enabled the designers to deliver a pdf, e converted out to svg and added template style tags. Still being used today doing invoices a month. If I was to do it again, openrpt would be my first choice. Thanks Alan for that information. I would like see my A4 page with a footer and 15mm padding to the page borders.
HTML is still measured in mm or inches, and is there a way multiple pages page 2 from an invoice for example.
Wkhtmltopdf allows you to specify secondary html pages for headers and footers, its tricky to get right, but does work. I think it can also add page numbers For sizing, you have to trail and error the output.
But usually if you get the look ok on the Web page, the print out is pretty similar.
Its a relatively fast , maintainable and reasonably reliable solution, but not design prefect composted with other ways to to it. The best and the simplest way for Html to pdf convertion here http: But thanks for mentioning. For me the best tools are wkhtmltopdf and pahtomJs — both generate pdf from html and are based on WebKit.
The most important thing is that they are generating it very quickly 40 pages for seconds — the above libs will do it for hour or more if at all. Wow 10 pages in a second is a lot, buy how do you do that with paging for invoices with more than one page? Hi Olaf, With wkhtmltopdf you have to use this option when generating the pdf: The full documentation is here: Toggle navigation.

Olaf, Yes we done invoices etc using wkhtmltopdf, it is considerably easier to maintain than huge amounts of php code. You can even let the designers lose on it ;.
Olaf, Yes modifying an existing pdf its not really where Wkhtml excels, I did write a svg to pdf convertor a long time ago that enabled the designers to deliver a pdf, e converted out to svg and added template style tags. If I was to do it again, openrpt would be my first choice Regards Alan.

Hello Todor, thanks for the comment. Thanks Todor, that is what I was looking for.

How to get how many pages in a PDF? I read PDF spec. The tree structure allows PDF applications, using little memory to quickly open a document containing thousands of pages. If a PDF have 63 pages, the page tree node will like this So now, I spread my tresor. So spend much time in creating a PHP library to extract text from pages. Based on TCPDF parser class, now my lib can handle many cases such as multiple charset encoding, base64 and octal encoding Project webiste: To get this to work on Windows do not use escapeshellcmd From online help: Following characters are preceded by a backslash: So you are probably passing duff paths to pdf2text.
Just make darned sure you are in control of what is being passed through to your system call. To extend alex's example earlier, you can use a couple of switches inside the pdf doc to give you the total number of pages, without using any ext.
