TCPDF Cell Stretching

Hi Experts,

I am trying to output a HTML table into TCPDF, but one of my columns is for comments. This is related to my other question regarding reducing automatically the font size, and I found within TCPDF a feature called cell stretching (example_004.php, line 80).

My question is within my HTML's td,  how can I implement $pdf->Cell?

For example,
$html .= '<td>' . $pdf->cell????????

Open in new window


Thank you

I may have only partially answered this in another related question, but I think you're mixing apples and oranges here.  HTML is a semantic markup language.  It knows nothing of document layout.  PDF is a document layout language.  TCPDF is used to produce PDF documents.  It does not use HTML.  My recommendation is to make two different views for your Model-View-Controller application.  One of the Views will render the data in HTML.  The other of the Views will render the data in PDF.  If these two views are completely disconnected from each other, it will be much easier to get each of them right.
