Template for PDF Output

Recommended Posts

You want to display pdf files as pages in frontend? Go here:

  • Create a template file 'showpdf.php'
    <?php
    $file = $page->pdf->filename;
    header('Content-Type: application/pdf');
    header('Content-Disposition: inline; filename="' . basename($file).'"');
    header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($file));
    readfile($file);
  • Create field 'pdf' of type file and add it to your template.
  • Create a page using the template 'showpdf.php'
  • Add pdf to page field 'pdf'. Done.

To get save option instead of display use 'attachment' instead of 'inline' like

header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="' . basename($file).'"');

Just a thought on this. It looks like this will result in URLs like: mysite.com/documents/mydocument/ that will directly display a PDF. Correct?

Maybe it's just me, but I always like to know when I am about to open up a PDF - it gives me the option to save instead, or open in a new tab, or decide not to open because I am on mobile don't want to wait for a potentially huge PDF file to open. Maybe this is becoming less of an issue now that browsers are directly rendering PDFs themselves, or sites are using mozilla's pdf.js etc.

Anyway, just my two cents worth :)

PS, given that you are using a file field, shouldn't:

$file= $page->pdf;

be:

$file= $page->pdf->url;

Thanks Adrian,

finally it should be:

$file = $page->pdf->filename;

It doesn't work with url here. Don't know why? Got it: readfile() needs fullpath!

Added filesize-header. To force download it should be 'attachment' instead of 'inline'

<?php
$file = $page->pdf->filename;
header('Content-Type: application/pdf');
header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="' . basename($file).'"');
header('Content-Length: ' . filesize($file));
readfile($file);

      after the migration to version 3.0.145 our export templates all of a sudden dont work properly, 
      we have a functionality where we use a boiler template with a set of fields. for some reason since the upgrade when we select the export template to export it. it wont show any of the fields added after the migration, 

      as you can see the offer certificate remarks field has been added to the export, 
      but when we select it it wont come trough

      Hello everyone!
      I have a markup and image field question:
      I have a markup in which a gallery preview should be displayed on home page. This gallery have a special markup, 3 of 4 images have special image ratio.

      The gallery looks like this. 
      The html markup is like this:
      <div class="uk-section-muted" uk-scrollspy="target: [uk-scrollspy-class]; cls: uk-animation-slide-top-small; delay: 200;"> <div data-src="./assets/images/arrahof/home-restaurant-bg.svg" class="uk-background-norepeat uk-background-contain uk-background-top-center uk-section uk-section-large" uk-img> <div class="uk-container uk-container-small"> <div class="uk-margin-large" uk-grid> <div class="uk-width-1-1@m"> <h2 class="uk-text-center" uk-scrollspy-class>Das Angebot im ArraHof</h2> </div> </div> <div class="uk-grid-small uk-grid-margin-small" uk-grid> <div class="uk-width-expand@s"> <div class="uk-margin-remove-vertical uk-text-center" uk-scrollspy-class> <a class="el-container uk-inline-clip uk-transition-toggle uk-link-reset" href="#"> <img class="el-image" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/610x604" data-sizes="(min-width: 610px) 610px" data-width="610" data-height="604" alt="Placeholder Image" uk-img> <div class="uk-overlay-default uk-transition-fade uk-position-cover"></div> <div class="uk-position-center uk-position-small"> <div class="uk-overlay uk-padding-large uk-transition-fade uk-margin-remove-first-child"> <h3 class="el-title uk-h4 uk-heading-divider uk-transition-slide-top-small uk-margin-top uk-margin-remove-bottom">Lorem Ipsum</h3> <div class="el-content uk-panel uk-transition-slide-bottom-small uk-margin-top">Comfort Food</div> </div> </div> </a> </div> </div> <div class="uk-width-expand@s"> <div class="uk-margin-remove-vertical uk-text-center" uk-scrollspy-class> <a class="el-container uk-inline-clip uk-transition-toggle uk-link-reset" href="#"> <img class="el-image" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/610x604" data-sizes="(min-width: 610px) 610px" data-width="610" data-height="604" alt="Placeholder Image" uk-img> <div class="uk-overlay-default uk-transition-fade uk-position-cover"></div> <div class="uk-position-center uk-position-small"> <div class="uk-overlay uk-transition-fade uk-margin-remove-first-child"> <h3 class="el-title uk-h4 uk-heading-divider uk-transition-slide-top-small uk-margin-top uk-margin-remove-bottom">The Williams family</h3> <div class="el-content uk-panel uk-transition-slide-bottom-small uk-margin-top">Comfort Food</div> </div> </div> </a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="uk-grid-small uk-grid-margin-small" uk-grid uk-height-match="target: .uk-card; row: false"> <div class="uk-width-2-3@s"> <div class="uk-margin-remove-vertical uk-text-center" uk-scrollspy-class> <a class="el-container uk-inline-clip uk-transition-toggle uk-link-reset" href="#"> <img class="el-image" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/610x400" data-width="610" data-height="400" alt="Placeholder Image" uk-img> <div class="uk-overlay-default uk-transition-fade uk-position-cover"></div> <div class="uk-position-center uk-position-small"> <div class="uk-overlay uk-transition-fade uk-margin-remove-first-child"> <h3 class="el-title uk-h4 uk-heading-divider uk-transition-slide-top-small uk-margin-top uk-margin-remove-bottom">The Williams family</h3> <div class="el-content uk-panel uk-transition-slide-bottom-small uk-margin-top">Comfort Food</div> </div> </div> </div> </a> </div> <div class="uk-width-expand@s"> <div class="uk-margin-remove-vertical uk-text-center" uk-scrollspy-class> <a class="el-container uk-inline-clip uk-transition-toggle uk-link-reset" href="#"> <img class="el-image" data-src="https://via.placeholder.com/610x820" data-sizes="(min-width: 610px) 610px" data-width="610" data-height="820" alt="Placeholder Image" uk-img> <div class="uk-overlay-default uk-transition-fade uk-position-cover"></div> <div class="uk-position-center uk-position-small"> <div class="uk-overlay uk-transition-fade uk-margin-remove-first-child"> <h3 class="el-title uk-h4 uk-heading-divider uk-transition-slide-top-small uk-margin-top uk-margin-remove-bottom">The Williams family</h3> <div class="el-content uk-panel uk-transition-slide-bottom-small uk-margin-top">Comfort Food</div> </div> </div> </div> </a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="uk-margin-large" uk-grid> <div class="uk-width-1-1@m"> <div class="uk-text-lead uk-width-xxlarge uk-margin-auto uk-text-center" uk-scrollspy-class>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.

      This module is inspired by and similar to the Template Stubs module. The author of that module has not been active in the PW community for several years now and parts of the code for that module didn't make sense to me, so I decided to create my own module. Auto Template Stubs has only been tested with PhpStorm because that is the IDE that I use.
      Auto Template Stubs
      Automatically creates stub files for templates when fields or fieldgroups are saved.
      Stub files are useful if you are using an IDE (e.g. PhpStorm) that provides code assistance - the stub files let the IDE know what fields exist in each template and what data type each field returns. Depending on your IDE's features you get benefits such as code completion for field names as you type, type inference, inspection, documentation, etc.
      Installation
      Install the Auto Template Stubs module.
      Configuration
      You can change the class name prefix setting in the module config if you like. It's good to use a class name prefix because it reduces the chance that the class name will clash with an existing class name.
      The directory path used to store the stub files is configurable.
      There is a checkbox to manually trigger the regeneration of all stub files if needed.
      Usage
      Add a line near the top of each of your template files to tell your IDE what stub class name to associate with the $page variable within the template file. For example, with the default class name prefix you would add the following line at the top of the home.php template file:
      /** @var tpl_home $page */ Now enjoy code completion, etc, in your IDE.

      Adding data types for non-core Fieldtype modules
      The module includes the data types returned by all the core Fieldtype modules. If you want to add data types returned by one or more non-core Fieldtype modules then you can hook the AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes() method. For example, in /site/ready.php:
      // Add data types for some non-core Fieldtype modules $wire->addHookAfter('AutoTemplateStubs::getReturnTypes', function(HookEvent $event) { $extra_types = [ 'FieldtypeDecimal' => 'string', 'FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker' => 'LeafletMapMarker', 'FieldtypeRepeaterMatrix' => 'RepeaterMatrixPageArray', 'FieldtypeTable' => 'TableRows', ]; $event->return = $event->return + $extra_types; }); Credits
      Inspired by and much credit to the Template Stubs module by mindplay.dk.

      Hi all, 
      I am having some issues uploading a PDF to our website (a problem we’ve had before).
      I have tried reducing the size of the PDF but the problem seems to be with generating the thumbnail image because the upload works under the Fallback mode but the thumbnail is terrible (see attached). 
      Does anybody have any advice about this? Please note that I'm not a developer. 
      Thanks!

      Hi again, after trying pages2PDF, RockPDF and mpdf I'm not sure which of them I should use. Of course, there is also wirePDF.
      I merged mpdf with rockPDF, add a footer and a page in Landscape and that works, like in the code-snippet below but be am I on the right way?
      After that I tried a couple of times rendering an image. Nothing happend, the same with Pages2PDF too. I also copied an Image-URL within processwire and tried further getting an Image within the PDF-Document, but it still display only the red marked placeholder.
      I simply would like create an PDF on click from some Pages including the Images.
      Are there special requirements on Debian 10 with Apache and php 7.3 using Processwire 3.0.123.?
      Is there a guide that I didn't found?
      Is somebody out there who has a similar issue solved and would you be so kind to explain?
       
      $pdf = $modules->get('RockPdf'); $mpdf = $pdf->mpdf; # $mpdf->showImageErrors = true; $pdf->set('SetHeader', 'header text'); $mpdf->AddPage('L'); # $mpdf->Image(urlencode('site/assets/files/1845/image-2.275x200.jpg'), 0, 0, 210, 297, 'jpg', '', true, false); $pdf->set('SetFooter', ' <table width="100%"> <tr> <td width="33%">{DATE j.m.Y}</td>        <td width="33%" align="center">{PAGENO}/{nbpg}</td> <td width="33%" style="text-align: right;">whatever</td> </tr> </table>'); $pdf->show(); // generate pdf
