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

FPDI and tFPDF

This example shows how FPDI works together with tFPDF. tFPDF is a version of FPDF, which supports UTF-8 and font-subsetting.

PHP
<?php
use setasign\Fpdi;

require_once('tfpdf/tfpdf.php');
require_once('fpdi2/src/autoload.php');

class Pdf extends Fpdi\Tfpdf\Fpdi
{
    /**
     * "Remembers" the template id of the imported page
     */
    protected $tplId;

    /**
     * Draw an imported PDF logo on every page
     */
    function Header()
    {
        if ($this->tplId === null) {
            $this->setSourceFile('logo.pdf');
            $this->tplId = $this->importPage(1);
        }
        $size = $this->useImportedPage($this->tplId, 130, 5, 60);

        $this->SetFont('DejaVuSansCondensed', 'B', 16);
        $this->SetTextColor(0);
        $this->SetXY($this->lMargin, 5);

        $text = 'tFPDF (v' . tFPDF_VERSION . ') and FPDI (v'
            . Fpdi\Tfpdf\Fpdi::VERSION . ')';
        $this->Cell(0, $size['height'], $text);
        $this->Ln();
    }
}

// initiate PDF
$pdf = new Pdf();

// Add some Unicode font (uses UTF-8)
$pdf->AddFont('DejaVuSansCondensed', '', 'DejaVuSansCondensed.ttf', true);
$pdf->AddFont('DejaVuSansCondensed', 'B', 'DejaVuSansCondensed-Bold.ttf', true);

// add a page
$pdf->AddPage();

$pdf->SetFont('DejaVuSansCondensed', '', 14);

// Load a UTF-8 string from a file and print it
$txt = file_get_contents('tfpdf/HelloWorld.txt', true);
$pdf->Write(8, $txt);

// Select a standard font (uses windows-1252)
$pdf->SetFont('Arial', '', 14);
$pdf->Ln(10);
$pdf->Write(5, 'The file uses font subsetting.');

$pdf->Output();
