Use

<?php

use PdfResponse;

class MyPresenter extends Nette\Application\UI\Presenter
{

	public function actionPdf()
	{
		$template = $this->createTemplate()->setFile(APP_DIR . "/templates/myPdf.latte");
		$template->someValue = 123;
		// Tip: In template to make a new page use <pagebreak>

		$pdf = new \PdfResponse($template, $this->presenter);
		$pdf->documentTitle = "costum file name 123";

		// optional
		$pdf->documentTitle = date("Y-m-d") . " My super title"; // creates filename 2012-06-30-my-super-title.pdf
		$pdf->pageFormat = "A4-L"; // wide format
		$pdf->getMPDF()->setFooter("|© www.mysite.com|"); // footer

		// now you have 3 posibilites:

		// 1. render template in browser and terminate, e.g. testing
		$pdf->test();

		// 2. save file to server
		$pdf->save(WWW_DIR . "/generated/"); // as a filename $this->documentTitle will be used
		$pdf->save(WWW_DIR . "/generated/", "another file 123); // OR use a custom name

		// OR in case of mail attachment, returns path to file on server
		$savedFile = $pdf->save(WWW_DIR . "/contracts/"); 
		$mail = new Nette\Mail\Message;
		$mail->addTo("john@doe.com");
		$mail->addAttachment($savedFile);
		$mail->send();

		// 3. send pdf file to output (save/open by user) and terminate
		$pdf->output();
	}
