fpdf - Send PDF via email

I am using code from this website to convert html code to a PDF:


I have found this code to send the pdf by email, but not sure how to use it:

$mail = new PHPMailer();
$doc = $pdf->Output('', 'S');
$mail->AddStringAttachment($doc, 'doc.pdf', 'base64', 'application/pdf');

Can you please demonstrate to me with sample code.

i.e. Instead of opening the PDF it send via email from a form submission?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please refer the following code

$mail = new PHPMailer();$mail = new PHPMailer();
$mail->Host = "smtp1.example.com;smtp2.example.com";
$mail->SMTPAuth = true;
$mail->Username = 'smtpusername';
$mail->Password = 'smtppassword';

$mail->FromName="My site's mailer";
$mail->AddReplyTo("replies@example.com", "Replies for my site");

$mail->Subject = "Your invoice";

$mail->AddAttachment('files/invoice-user-1234.pdf', 'invoice.pdf'); // attach files/invoice-user-1234.pdf, and rename it to invoice.pdf
$mail->Body = "Please find your invoice attached.";
   echo "Error sending: " . $mail->ErrorInfo;;
   echo "Letter is sent";
