Want to add a simple HTML footer to invoice + PDF

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I want to add simple HTML table footer to invoice + PDF.

 

I tried creating invoicepdffooter.tpl and added a simple html table code but when I click on download button, it shows the coding (instead of PDF)

 

Can anyone help me in this regard?

Make sure you used TCPDF syntax. invoicepdffooter.ppl doesn't use Smarty. Something like follows.

$pdf->Ln(-5);
$pdf->SetFont($pdfFont, '', 6);
$pdf->MultiCell(140, 5, 'The cat is on the table', 0, 'C', '', 1, 35, '', true);

it's going to need <?php at the beginning - otherwise you will get errors...

... and if you wanted to use a html table...

<?php

$pdf->Ln(-5);
$pdf->SetFont($pdfFont, '', 6);
$tblhtml = '<table width="100%" bgcolor="#ccc" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2" border="0">
    <tr height="30" bgcolor="#efefef" style="font-weight:bold;text-align:center;">
        <td width="25%">there</td>
        <td width="25%">are</td>
        <td width="25%">four</td>
        <td width="25%">boxes</td>
    </tr>
</table>';
$pdf->writeHTML($tblhtml, true, false, false, false, '');

one other important thing to mention - if you are using a child theme, then this template file must go in the child theme folder....  the invoice docs say that the file must be in the same folder as invoicepdf.tpl, but if I do that using a child theme, I get a blank PDF... with the invoicepdffooter template in the child theme, it seems to work.

Thank you very much for your guidance. I have added the table in footer using above method
