How to save DOMPDF generated content to file

0 votes

I am using Dompdf to create PDF file but I don't know why it doesn't save the created PDF to server.

Here is my code:

require_once("./pdf/dompdf_config.inc.php");
    $html =
      '<html><body>'.
      '<p>Put your html here, or generate it with your favourite '.
      'templating system.</p>'.
      '</body></html>';

    $dompdf = new DOMPDF();
    $dompdf->load_html($html);
    $dompdf->render();
    file_put_contents('Brochure.pdf', $dompdf->output());

Any help?

Hii,

Try this:

require_once("./pdf/dompdf_config.inc.php");
$files = glob("./pdf/include/*.php");
foreach($files as $file) include_once($file);

$html =
      '<html><body>'.
      '<p>Put your html here, or generate it with your favourite '.
      'templating system.</p>'.
      '</body></html>';

    $dompdf = new DOMPDF();
    $dompdf->load_html($html);
    $dompdf->render();
    $output = $dompdf->output();
    file_put_contents('Brochure.pdf', $output);

Only difference here is that all of the files in the include directory are included.

Other than that my only suggestion would be to specify a full directory path for writing the file rather than just the filename.
