Import pages from existing PDF documents and use them as templates in FPDF

Simple Introduction Demo of FPDI

This demo simply imports a single page of an existing PDF document and adds text in front of it.

PHP
<?php
require_once('fpdf.php');
require_once('fpdi.php');

// initiate FPDI
$pdf = new FPDI();
// add a page
$pdf->AddPage();
// set the source file
$pdf->setSourceFile('PdfDocument.pdf');
// import page 1
$tplIdx = $pdf->importPage(1);
// use the imported page and place it at position 10,10 with a width of 100 mm
$pdf->useTemplate($tplIdx, 10, 10, 100);

// now write some text above the imported page
$pdf->SetFont('Helvetica');
$pdf->SetTextColor(255, 0, 0);
$pdf->SetXY(30, 30);
$pdf->Write(0, 'This is just a simple text');

$pdf->Output();
