php How to create pdf like a example using fpdf?


Not overly familiar with fPDF. It looks OK for quick, simple stuff. Have you tried using R&OS ezPDF Creator instead - not sure what state of development/maintenance it's in these days but I think it may give you more detailed control for the kind of output you want. I've used it for years for bespoke PDF output from PHP. Just checked and it looks like it's still being maintained - see:

Basically it looks ok. Its just a bunch of little things to adapt. e.g. setting the font to bold is done via $pdf->SetFont('Arial','B',14); before the output statement and setting it back to $pdf->SetFont('Arial','',14); afterwards. See fpdf documentation for details.

I have tried fpdf and a few other libraries for a big job i have done a couple of years back. You might want to look at dompdf, the library takes html and converts it into pdf flawlessly (after a couple of tries to get it right, but still) - only thing is, read the docs - images (like your barcode there) must be linked with server path, i.e. /path/to/image/image.jpg

agree, it's faster but way less failprove to my experience. And the size of the PDF is most of the time relevantly bigger.

generating html and convert it to a pdf is a last-resort workaround.

snapping a quick html for your desired layout is always easier, faster, and more convenient than 1000 lines of $this->SetXXXColor(); and $this->Cell(); and similar

the size (file size) depends on more than one factor. plus, you got a bit of extra flexibility with html converted pdf's. That's what i used and it still works today, 5 years from when i implemented it...
