A Quick Start guide

How to create a Response object

This small example creates a PDF document with format A4 and portrait orientation:

public function indexAction()
{
   return new \TFox\MpdfPortBundle\Response\PDFResponse($this->getMpdfService()->generatePdf('Hello World'));
}

/**

@return \TFox\MpdfPortBundle\Service\PDFService */ private function getMpdfService() { return $this->get('t_fox_mpdf_port.pdf'); }

Generate a variable with PDF content

Sometimes it is necessary to get a variable which content is PDF document.

$myVar = $this->getMpdfService()->generatePdf('Hello World');

How to get an instance of \mPDF class

If you would like to work with mPDF class itself, you can use a getMpdf method:

$mpdf = new \Mpdf\Mpdf();

Additional options

Additional options might be passed via the second argument:

public function indexAction()
{
    return new \TFox\MpdfPortBundle\Response\PDFResponse($this->getMpdfService()->generatePdf('Hello World', array(
            'format' => 'A4-L' // A4 page, landscape orientation
    )));
}
