Getting error calling function using FPDF to create PDF file with PHP

Hi all, I am trying to create a PDF file with FPDF and I get the following error when I call the function that is used to create the table in the file: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: fancytable(). I have a function called fancytable, and then a class called FPDF that calls it.


thanks,
bob
function FancyTable($header,$data) {
 
    //Colors, line width and bold font
    $this->SetFillColor(255,0,0);
    $this->SetTextColor(255);
    $this->SetDrawColor(128,0,0);
    $this->SetLineWidth(.3);
    $this->SetFont('','B');
    //Header
    $w=array(40,35,40,45);
    for($i=0;$i<count($header);$i++)
        $this->Cell($w[$i],7,$header[$i],1,0,'C',1);
    $this->Ln();
    //Color and font restoration
    $this->SetFillColor(224,235,255);
    $this->SetTextColor(0);
    $this->SetFont('');
    //Data
    $fill=0;
    foreach($data as $row)
    {
        $this->Cell($w[0],6,$row[0],'LR',0,'L',$fill);
        $this->Cell($w[1],6,$row[1],'LR',0,'L',$fill);
        $this->Cell($w[2],6,$row[2],'LR',0,'R',$fill);
        $this->Cell($w[3],6,$row[3],'LR',0,'R',$fill);
        $this->Ln();
        $fill=!$fill;
    }
    $this->Cell(array_sum($w),0,'','T');
}
 
 
$pdf=new FPDF();
//Column titles
$header=array('Day','Date','Job Code','Hours');
//Data loading
$data=$tarr;
$pdf->AddPage();
$pdf->SetFont('Arial','B',16);
$pdf->Cell(40,10,'Weekly Timesheet');
$pdf->SetFont('Arial','',12);
$pdf->Cell(40,10, "Employee: " . $fname2 . " " . $lname2,1,0,'');
$pdf->Cell(40,10, "Week Ending: " . $wending,1,1,'');
$pdf->SetFont('Arial','',14);
$pdf->FancyTable($header,$data);
$pdf->Output();

Hi,

By having this function solely, it isn't added to the FPDF class. You can create a small class that extends FPDF class and add the function to it. Then instead of new FPDF use new FPDFExtended. I added an example to show you want I mean.

Kind regards

class FPDFExtended {
  function FancyTable($header,$data) {
 
    //Colors, line width and bold font
    $this->SetFillColor(255,0,0);
    $this->SetTextColor(255);
    $this->SetDrawColor(128,0,0);
    $this->SetLineWidth(.3);
    $this->SetFont('','B');
    //Header
    $w=array(40,35,40,45);
    for($i=0;$i<count($header);$i++)
        $this->Cell($w[$i],7,$header[$i],1,0,'C',1);
    $this->Ln();
    //Color and font restoration
    $this->SetFillColor(224,235,255);
    $this->SetTextColor(0);
    $this->SetFont('');
    //Data
    $fill=0;
    foreach($data as $row)
    {
        $this->Cell($w[0],6,$row[0],'LR',0,'L',$fill);
        $this->Cell($w[1],6,$row[1],'LR',0,'L',$fill);
        $this->Cell($w[2],6,$row[2],'LR',0,'R',$fill);
        $this->Cell($w[3],6,$row[3],'LR',0,'R',$fill);
        $this->Ln();
        $fill=!$fill;
