php – How to include the external style sheet in dom pdf

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am using Dompdf for the report generation in the php. I am not able to include the external style sheet for the same…

The code I am using is similar to the following:

<?php
require_once "dompdf/dompdf_config.inc.php";
$dompdf = new DOMPDF();

$html ="
<table>
  <tr >
    <td class='abc'>testing table</td>
    </tr>
  <tr>
   <td class='def'>Testng header</td>
  </tr>
</table>";

$dompdf->load_html($html);
$dompdf->render();
$dompdf->set_base_path('localhost/exampls/style.css');
$dompdf->stream("hello.pdf");
?>

Please let me know how to include the external css file..

How to&Answers:

$dompdf->set_base_path() isn’t where you specify your CSS. That method gives you the opportunity to define a base path that is appended to relative paths in the document.

Your CSS should be part of the HTML you feed to dompdf. Something like the following:

<?php
require_once "dompdf/dompdf_config.inc.php";
$dompdf = new DOMPDF();

$html ="
<html>
<head>
<link type="text/css" href="localhost/exampls/style.css" rel="stylesheet" />
</head>
<body>
<table>
  <tr >
    <td class='abc'>testing table</td>
    </tr>
  <tr>
   <td class='def'>Testng header</td>
  </tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>";

$dompdf->load_html($html);
$dompdf->render();
$dompdf->set_base_path('localhost/exampls/style.css');
$dompdf->stream("hello.pdf");
?>

Think of dompdf as a web browser that renders to PDF instead of a screen. You feed it a valid HTML document just like you would any web browser.

Answer:

dompdf supports the some CSS 2.1 selector syntaxes. dompdf also supports elements with multiple class attributes (e.g. <p class="red bold">foo</p> matches p.red and p.bold).

Note that the CSS selectors are case sensitive in dompdf (e.g. .foo will not match <div class="FOO">bar</div>)
