Can somebody give me an idea how can I actually convert a web page content (content fetch from MySQL db – with while loop) to a pdf file?

I found fpdf but it doesnt seem to work. Anyone has experience creating pdf file by using MYSQL PHP ?

p.s = content consists of image and text

please advise.. thanks

@TheRaveFeb 15.2008 — The standard method is to use PHP's PDFlib.

Just google PHP PDFLib and there's loads of information.

@the-ferretFeb 15.2008 — TCPDF is an Open Source PHP class for generating PDF files on-the-fly without requiring external extensions.

TCPDF has been originally derived from the FPDF class by Olivier Plathey (http://www.fpdf.org)">http://www.fpdf.org).

I have not used it but sounds like what you need.
