In this post , I will cover as how you convert an HTML page into PDF file on a fly.
You basically need an fpdf library to do the task.You may download it from http://www.fpdf.org/en/download.php
We will be using HTML2FPDF class of fpdf library.
Now let us see, how to convert a sample HTML page into a PDF file using HTML2FPDF Library.
Below is the code for the conversion.
<?php require('html2fpdf.php'); $pdf=new HTML2FPDF(); $pdf->AddPage(); $fp = fopen("sample.html","r"); $strContent = fread($fp, filesize("sample.html")); fclose($fp); $pdf->WriteHTML($strContent); $pdf->Output("sample.pdf"); echo "PDF file is generated successfully!"; ?>
Just that simple.You just need to include html2fpdf.php.Here I have passed sample.html page,the pdf generated will have same content of sample.html page,however in the pdf format.
