More reading have brought me to the conclusion that tcpdf is newer and more powerful, although power is less an importance for me right now. I am trying to rework the example with my very simple code but without any success. Basically what my code should do is display Name1, Name2 and Name3. Because there are more records that belong to Name1, on the next line, leave the area blank and under Name2 and Name 3, display the records.
This is very much like a group off Name1. My code works perfectly as php, but when I try to place it with one of the html tables it reminds me of what an idiot I am. Is there any simple way to include my code in one of the tables in example?
I could not have asked for a more perfect functioning code to my problem. Again, thank you. Any quick and simple solution? Taurenas, again, perfect. Both work like a dream and are exactly what I needed. Taurenas : This is the most effective and peaceful way to solve a problem You are Great pal. In the first example you have explained how to display the columns by group with group name. Help Create Join Login.

And it makes iterative development quite easy by letting you immediately see the results generated by your PHP code without any intermediate steps.
You can use TCPDF to generate myriad 1-D and 2-D barcode formats, and it supports all of the usual PDF features like bookmarks, document links, compression, annotations, document encryption, and digital signatures. You can find download links to all of these in the Related topics section.
We'll go over the installation process, then we'll use PHP to generate a web page showing an invoice-style document that could come from any e-commerce site. That is, you can use your favorite ZIP extraction tool to unpack the archive, and you'll end up with a TCPDF directory containing everything you need to get started.
Luckily, it's easy to adjust these in one whack from the shell see Listing 1. You also need to make sure that the cache and images directories are writable, since TCPDF will store temporary files there. Next, you need to assign the files to the user and group the web server; this is often the user www and group www, but it will depend on your system.

Note that the command might use a. This is TCPDF's configuration settings and lets you control the library's defaults, as well as telling it how to find its support files. You can adjust any of these settings in your PHP code, too, so don't worry if you're not sure for example, if you set portrait-mode document layouts here, you can still create landscape documents.
With the default configuration settings, TCPDF should have no trouble rendering any of the examples it ships with, assuming you haven't moved the files and directories away from their original locations. Let's use it to create a printable version of an invoice. After you've created your e-commerce masterpiece of a web site, your customers are going to order things, and you'll take their money. This is great, but they'll want some sort of invoice in case the order goes wrong or their credit card company messes up the payment.
Let's make a reasonably nice-looking invoice web page so they can see what they've ordered and what you're going to charge them. Using my favorite PHP development environment, I've created a new Invoice folder containing these files:.
Inside Invoice. When it's not, the user is after a normal web page, so you display the page using the generateHTML function see Listing 3. You'll look at the generatePDF function later, but it's safe to assume that you'll use it to generate a PDF of the invoice data. At the end of the table, add a row containing the total cost of the order. Straightforward stuff, of course, and the main challenges when implementing this on your own site will be interacting with your data sources and getting the CSS styling just right.This post as been superseded.
Please see my new post on the subject. During my use of the excellent tcpdf library for creating pdf documents with php, I came across an interesting problem when creating a pdf featuring a grid of data. Although I could have use an html grid to present the data, I was trying to avoid the use of html and keep to the CellMultiCellText etc.
The content of some of the cells in this particular grid were quite long and so some wrapping of text would and needed to occur. The MultiCell method handles this and will wrap the text, expanding accordingly. Now I was trying to make a grid row, so needed all of the cells to be the same height — and there lay the problem — I did not know how high to make the other cells. It was a chicken and egg situation: I needed to know the height of the cell before drawing them but did not know how high they needed to be until after I had drawn them.
I studied the documentation hard but realised that the answer was not to try and generate the cells, borders and all, in one pass. I could achieve what I needed by drawing each row twice — once for the content and once for the borders.
The MultiCell function kindly returns the height that the cell was drawn, so by remembering the maximum value it was when drawing a row of cells, I could then go back and draw the borders to that maximum height:.
Note that the last parameter I set in MultiCell is set to 0 which means that no new line occurs once a cell is drawn. This means that the cells will appear side-by-side and also means that I need to manually create the new line when I finish drawing the row.
Any Solution for that? God Bless You. Have a read of that one and you will see I have taken into account page breaks in a more comprehensive manner.
Hopefully it will work for you. Your answer will be greatly appreciated. It seems that there must be a way to maybe extend the class and rewrite the MultiCell function so that borders get painted on every screen. Wow, yes that is an issue with this method. That is a bit brutal however and is not a proper solution. I will have a look at this over the weekend and see what I can come up with, I suspect it affects my implementation too.
In this case, the value returned by multicell seems to be erroneous, and since the position is now on the last page, only the last page gets borders. Your email address will not be published.

I am using the following code and the data is being displayed as a general webpage. I want to display it in. I am sure you can look up tcpdf's documentation for basic pdf creation example. Also, I am partial to mPDF. I think it has much better support for styling. Take a look on demos from official site.
Change all your echo statements to instead put your HTML markup in a variable. Be aware that tcpdf doesn't handle all markup very well. Table based layouts like yours usually work pretty well but I have found that all you td cells in every row usually need explicit width settings to work properly. Learn more.

Lets you leave the code intact if you like with echos and not stuffing it all into a variable. The reason I am asking is that I have both Adobe and Nitro pdf. Sometimes my generated pdf files show up blank in my Nitro. If you get "Hello" to print, then it's something with the script.
If not, it might be an issue with your setup. Get rid of the colspan altogether. AlexeyGerasimov, Actually my query is working properly without pdf, and even by using pdf it's showing few data improperly.
