#1042 closed new feature (wontfix)

core : responseTcpdf adding its own Tcpdf Class

Reported by: isepman Owned by: isepman
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: jelix:core response Version: 1.1.4
Severity: normal Keywords: pdf
Cc: dhuguet@… Blocked By:

Hosting Provider: Php version:


Tcpdf class has two method that can be overwritten (Header and Footer). But jResponseTcpdf uses its own class (jTcpdf). I wanted to use my own header and footer method (and also use callback, add background to all my pdfs generated by Jelix). Thus, I wrote this patch which allows me to write my own class. We can use it like this :

$rep = $this->getResponse('tcpdf');

And in app/modules/exportsPdf/classes/maClasse.class.php :

class maClasse extends jTcpdf { //The class must extends jTcpdf to keep jelix easy-save features

    public function __construct($orientation, $unit, $format, $encoding){
    parent::__construct($orientation, $unit, $format, $encoding)

    public function Header(){
    //Add your own header to the pdfResponse

    public function Footer(){
    //Add Your own footer

I know I could have done a 'pdf' Response in defaultconfig.ini.php and write my own Response there but I didn't need to add anything to the other jelix function (outputErrors ...etc,), and we are not modifying the response here, we are touching to Tcpdf class.
Sorry for my english...
Here is the patch

thanks for your patch, but I think it is useless. don't call initPdf, just set the tcpdf property with the object you instancy yourself, as indicated in the manual . Does it fit your need ?

That exactly fits my needs, I realize that I "me suis pris la tête", Thanks for the advise and sorry for disturbing...

However, there is a little mistacke in the documentation. "L'objet dans la propriété tcpdf est tout simplement un objet TCPDF."

should be

"L'objet dans la propriété tcpdf est tout simplement un objet jTCPDF."


"MyTcPdf? étant l'objet qui hérite de TCPDF. "

should be

"MyTcPdf? étant l'objet qui hérite de jTCPDF. "

because in the jResponseTcpdf file, line 57 (function output):

if(!($this->tcpdf instanceof jTcpdf))
            throw new jException('jelix~errors.reptcpdf.not_a_jtcpdf');

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is not really a mistack, since jTcpdf inherits from TCPDF ;-) But you're right, the manual should be more clear. I fixed it.
