PDFs are often used for reports, brochures, manuals, invoices, product data sheets, and lots more. To do this, download the FPDF archive file and extract it to a folder within your website. Call the folder fpdf. Create a file called report. The first thing to do is include the FPDF library so that you can use it. The library is called fpdf. The variables include: Various colours used in the report. Each colour is specified as a 3-element array containing red, green and blue values in the range The URL and dimensions of the company logo image.

The row and column labels for the report data. Configuration settings for the chart. These include the chart position, dimensions, axis labels, and the step value to use for the Y-axis scale. The colours to use for the chart bars. As with the other report colours, these are specified as 3-element arrays. There are 4 colours: 1 for each bar in the chart. The report data.

This is a 2-dimensional array containing 4 rows of quarterly sales figures, 1 row per product. This consists of the company logo and the report name, centred in the page. The units to use for the page measurements.

The page format. Or you can specify a custom width and height with a 2-element array. You do this by calling the FPDF SetTextColor method, passing in the red, green and blue values of the colour to use each value should be in the range Just call the Image method, passing in the following arguments: The path of the image file.

This can be an absolute path, or relative to the PHP script. You can also use a URL. If you omit these then the current position is used. The width and height of the image in the PDF. If you omit both values then the original image dimensions are used at 72 DPI. If you omit 1 value then the other value is calculated automatically.

The image type. If you omit this value then FPDF guesses the image format from the filename extension. A URL to link the image to. This is optional — if you supply a URL then the image becomes a clickable link. All measurements, such as X and Y positions, widths and heights, use the units you specified when you created the PDF mm in this case.

To do this, you call the SetFont method, which takes the following arguments: The font family. The font style. The font size. You specify this in points it defaults to 12 points. See the manual on the FPDF website for details. Now add the report name. There are a few different ways that you can add text using FPDF.

Cell takes the following arguments all of them optional : The cell width and height. If you omit the width then the cell stretches to the right margin. If you omit the height then it defaults to zero. The string of text to print. Whether to draw a border around the cell. Default: 0. Where to place the current position after drawing the cell.

Values can be 0 to the right , 1 to the start of the next line , or 2 below. The text alignment. Whether the cell background should be filled with colour. Default: false. A URL to link to. If specified, turns the text cell into a link. First the page header. Add a new page, then output the page header, which consists of the report name centred at the top of the page using an Arial Regular point font. First print a heading using the regular text colour and an Arial point font.

This consists of a 16mm line break, followed by the first paragraph, a 12mm line break, and the final paragraph. Sales of the HyperWidget in particular exceeded expectations. The fourth quarter was generally the best performing; this was most likely due to our increased ad spend in Q3. First, set the border colour for the table. The SetDrawColor method sets the colour to use for borders and other lines, so you can use this to set the table cell borders.

You already know to call the SetTextColor method to set the text colour to use. To create table cells you use — you guessed it — the Cell method, specifying the cell width, height, contents, and alignment.

Here, then, is the code to create the table header row. The same trick is used later on with the product names in the left hand column. Creating the data rows The rest of the table consists of 4 rows of sales figures — 1 row for each product — over the 4 quarters. This lets you display the appropriate row label for each row as you move through the table. For each row you create the left header cell containing the product name, and the 4 data cells containing the sales data.

Set appropriate text and background colours for each cell as you go. Calculating scales and bar width The first thing to do is compute the scales for the X and Y axes.

This is the inverse of the X scale value, reduced by a factor of 1. Now you can add the X and Y axis lines, data labels, and axis labels. Use Arial point for the data labels. To create lines in FDPF, you use the Line method, which accepts 4 arguments: the X and Y co-ordinates of the start of the line, and the X and Y co-ordinates of the end of the line.

For the X axis, draw a horizontal line along the bottom of the chart, allowing 30mm for the Y-axis labels on the left.

For the Y axis, draw a vertical line up the left side of the chart, again allowing 30mm for the Y-axis labels. Extend the line 8mm above the desired chart height to make room for the axis label later on. Use Arial Bold point. The width and height of the rectangle.

The rectangle style. Now draw the bars. The only thing left to do is send the PDF to the browser so that the user can view or download it. This accepts 2 arguments: the suggested filename for the PDF, and a destination flag. D Forces the PDF to be downloaded. F Saves the file to a folder on the server. S Returns the PDF data as a string. You should see the PDF appear in your browser window. Alternatively you might see a dialog appear that lets you save the PDF to your hard drive.

Good work! Find out more by reading the online manual at the FPDF website. Have fun!

Transparency is supported. The format can be specified explicitly or inferred from the file extension. It is possible to put a link on the image. Remark: if an image is used several times, only one copy is embedded in the file. Parameters Path or URL of the image. If not specified or equal to null, the current abscissa is used. If not specified or equal to null, the current ordinate is used; moreover, a page break is triggered first if necessary in case automatic page breaking is enabled and, after the call, the current ordinate is moved to the bottom of the image.
