package gofpdf

import "github.com/jung-kurt/gofpdf"

Package gofpdf implements a PDF document generator with high level support for text, drawing and images.

Features

• Choice of measurement unit, page format and margins

• Page header and footer management

• Automatic page breaks, line breaks, and text justification

• Inclusion of JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF and basic path-only SVG images

• Colors, gradients and alpha channel transparency

• Outline bookmarks

• Internal and external links

• TrueType, Type1 and encoding support

• Page compression

• Lines, Bézier curves, arcs, and ellipses

• Rotation, scaling, skewing, translation, and mirroring

• Clipping

• Document protection

• Layers

• Templates

• Barcodes

gofpdf has no dependencies other than the Go standard library. All tests pass on Linux, Mac and Windows platforms. Like FPDF version 1.7, from which gofpdf is derived, this package does not yet support UTF-8 fonts. However, support is provided to translate UTF-8 runes to code page encodings.

Installation

To install the package on your system, run

go get github.com/jung-kurt/gofpdf

Later, to receive updates, run

go get -u -v github.com/jung-kurt/gofpdf/...

Quick Start

The following Go code generates a simple PDF file.

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Arial", "B", 16)
pdf.Cell(40, 10, "Hello, world")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose("hello.pdf")

See the functions in the fpdf_test.go file (shown as examples in this documentation) for more advanced PDF examples.

Errors

If an error occurs in an Fpdf method, an internal error field is set. After this occurs, Fpdf method calls typically return without performing any operations and the error state is retained. This error management scheme facilitates PDF generation since individual method calls do not need to be examined for failure; it is generally sufficient to wait until after Output() is called. For the same reason, if an error occurs in the calling application during PDF generation, it may be desirable for the application to transfer the error to the Fpdf instance by calling the SetError() method or the SetErrorf() method. At any time during the life cycle of the Fpdf instance, the error state can be determined with a call to Ok() or Err(). The error itself can be retrieved with a call to Error().

Conversion Notes

This package is a relatively straightforward translation from the original FPDF library written in PHP (despite the caveat in the introduction to Effective Go). The API names have been retained even though the Go idiom would suggest otherwise (for example, pdf.GetX() is used rather than simply pdf.X()). The similarity of the two libraries makes the original FPDF website a good source of information. It includes a forum and FAQ.

However, some internal changes have been made. Page content is built up using buffers (of type bytes.Buffer) rather than repeated string concatenation. Errors are handled as explained above rather than panicking. Output is generated through an interface of type io.Writer or io.WriteCloser. A number of the original PHP methods behave differently based on the type of the arguments that are passed to them; in these cases additional methods have been exported to provide similar functionality. Font definition files are produced in JSON rather than PHP.

Example PDFs

A side effect of running "go test ./..." is the production of a number of example PDFs. These can be found in the gofpdf/pdf directory after the tests complete.

Please note that these examples run in the context of a test. In order run an example as a standalone application, you'll need to examine fpdf_test.go for some helper routines, for example exampleFilename() and summary().

Example PDFs can be compared with reference copies in order to verify that they have been generated as expected. This comparison will be performed if a PDF with the same name as the example PDF is placed in the gofpdf/pdf/reference directory. The routine that summarizes an example will look for this file and, if found, will call ComparePDFFiles() to check the example PDF for equality with its reference PDF. If differences exist between the two files they will be printed to standard output and the test will fail. If the reference file is missing, the comparison is considered to succeed. In order to successfully compare two PDFs, the placement of internal resources must be consistent and the internal creation timestamps must be the same. To do this, the methods SetCatalogSort() and SetCreationDate() need to be called for both files. This is done automatically for all examples.

Nonstandard Fonts

Nothing special is required to use the standard PDF fonts (courier, helvetica, times, zapfdingbats) in your documents other than calling SetFont().

In order to use a different TrueType or Type1 font, you will need to generate a font definition file and, if the font will be embedded into PDFs, a compressed version of the font file. This is done by calling the MakeFont function or using the included makefont command line utility. To create the utility, cd into the makefont subdirectory and run "go build". This will produce a standalone executable named makefont. Select the appropriate encoding file from the font subdirectory and run the command as in the following example.

./makefont --embed --enc=../font/cp1252.map --dst=../font ../font/calligra.ttf

In your PDF generation code, call AddFont() to load the font and, as with the standard fonts, SetFont() to begin using it. Most examples, including the package example, demonstrate this method. Good sources of free, open-source fonts include http://www.google.com/fonts/ and http://dejavu-fonts.org/.

The draw2d package (https://github.com/llgcode/draw2d) is a two dimensional vector graphics library that can generate output in different forms. It uses gofpdf for its document production mode.

Acknowledgments

This package's code and documentation are closely derived from the FPDF library (http://www.fpdf.org/) created by Olivier Plathey, and a number of font and image resources are copied directly from it. Drawing support is adapted from the FPDF geometric figures script by David Hernández Sanz. Transparency support is adapted from the FPDF transparency script by Martin Hall-May. Support for gradients and clipping is adapted from FPDF scripts by Andreas Würmser. Support for outline bookmarks is adapted from Olivier Plathey by Manuel Cornes. Layer support is adapted from Olivier Plathey. Support for transformations is adapted from the FPDF transformation script by Moritz Wagner and Andreas Würmser. PDF protection is adapted from the work of Klemen Vodopivec for the FPDF product. Lawrence Kesteloot provided code to allow an image's extent to be determined prior to placement. Support for vertical alignment within a cell was provided by Stefan Schroeder. Ivan Daniluk generalized the font and image loading code to use the Reader interface while maintaining backward compatibility. Anthony Starks provided code for the Polygon function. Robert Lillack provided the Beziergon function and corrected some naming issues with the internal curve function. Claudio Felber provided implementations for dashed line drawing and generalized font loading. Stani Michiels provided support for multi-segment path drawing with smooth line joins, line join styles, enhanced fill modes, and has helped greatly with package presentation and tests. Templating is adapted by Marcus Downing from the FPDF_Tpl library created by Jan Slabon and Setasign. Jelmer Snoeck contributed packages that generate a variety of barcodes and help with registering images on the web. Jelmer Snoek and Guillermo Pascual augmented the basic HTML functionality with aligned text. Kent Quirk implemented backwards-compatible support for reading DPI from images that support it, and for setting DPI manually and then having it properly taken into account when calculating image size. Paulo Coutinho provided support for static embedded fonts. Bruno Michel has provided valuable assistance with the code.

Roadmap

• Handle UTF-8 source text natively. Until then, automatic translation of UTF-8 runes to code page bytes is provided.

• Improve test coverage as reported by the coverage tool.

This example demonstrates the generation of a simple PDF document. Note that since only core fonts are used (in this case Arial, a synonym for Helvetica), an empty string can be specified for the font directory in the call to New(). Note also that the example.Filename() and example.Summary() functions belong to a separate, internal package and are not part of the gofpdf library. If an error occurs at some point during the construction of the document, subsequent method calls exit immediately and the error is finally retrieved with the output call where it can be handled by the application.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Arial", "B", 16)
pdf.Cell(40, 10, "Hello World!")
fileStr := example.Filename("basic")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

Successfully generated pdf/basic.pdf

Advisory bitflag constants that control document activities

func CompareBytes Uses

func CompareBytes(sl1, sl2 []byte) (err error)

CompareBytes compares the bytes referred to by sl1 with those referred to by sl2. Nil is returned if the buffers are equal, otherwise an error.

func ComparePDFFiles Uses

func ComparePDFFiles(file1Str, file2Str string) (err error)

ComparePDFFiles reads and compares the full contents of the two specified files byte-for-byte. Nil is returned if the file contents are equal, or if the second file is missing, otherwise an error.

func ComparePDFs Uses

func ComparePDFs(rdr1, rdr2 io.Reader) (err error)

ComparePDFs reads and compares the full contents of the two specified readers byte-for-byte. Nil is returned if the buffers are equal, otherwise an error.

func GenerateTemplateID Uses

func GenerateTemplateID() int64

GenerateTemplateID gives the next template ID. These numbers are global so that they can never clash.

func HTMLBasicTokenize Uses

func HTMLBasicTokenize(htmlStr string) (list []HTMLBasicSegmentType)

HTMLBasicTokenize returns a list of HTML tags and literal elements. This is done with regular expressions, so the result is only marginally better than useless.

func MakeFont Uses

func MakeFont(fontFileStr, encodingFileStr, dstDirStr string, msgWriter io.Writer, embed bool) (err error)

MakeFont generates a font definition file in JSON format. A definition file of this type is required to use non-core fonts in the PDF documents that gofpdf generates. See the makefont utility in the gofpdf package for a command line interface to this function.

fontFileStr is the name of the TrueType file (extension .ttf), OpenType file (extension .otf) or binary Type1 file (extension .pfb) from which to generate a definition file. If an OpenType file is specified, it must be one that is based on TrueType outlines, not PostScript outlines; this cannot be determined from the file extension alone. If a Type1 file is specified, a metric file with the same pathname except with the extension .afm must be present.

encodingFileStr is the name of the encoding file that corresponds to the font.

dstDirStr is the name of the directory in which to save the definition file and, if embed is true, the compressed font file.

msgWriter is the writer that is called to display messages throughout the process. Use nil to turn off messages.

embed is true if the font is to be embedded in the PDF files.

func SetDefaultCatalogSort Uses

func SetDefaultCatalogSort(flag bool)

SetDefaultCatalogSort sets the default value of the catalog sort flag that will be used when initializing a new Fpdf instance. See SetCatalogSort() for more details.

func SetDefaultCompression Uses

func SetDefaultCompression(compress bool)

SetDefaultCompression controls the default setting of the internal compression flag. See SetCompression() for more details. Compression is on by default.

func SetDefaultCreationDate Uses

func SetDefaultCreationDate(tm time.Time)

SetDefaultCreationDate sets the default value of the document creation date that will be used when initializing a new Fpdf instance. See SetCreationDate() for more details.

func UnicodeTranslator Uses

func UnicodeTranslator(r io.Reader) (f func(string) string, err error)

UnicodeTranslator returns a function that can be used to translate, where possible, utf-8 strings to a form that is compatible with the specified code page. The returned function accepts a string and returns a string.

r is a reader that should read a buffer made up of content lines that pertain to the code page of interest. Each line is made up of three whitespace separated fields. The first begins with "!" and is followed by two hexadecimal digits that identify the glyph position in the code page of interest. The second field begins with "U+" and is followed by the unicode code point value. The third is the glyph name. A number of these code page map files are packaged with the gfpdf library in the font directory.

An error occurs only if a line is read that does not conform to the expected format. In this case, the returned function is valid but does not perform any rune translation.

func UnicodeTranslatorFromFile Uses

func UnicodeTranslatorFromFile(fileStr string) (f func(string) string, err error)

UnicodeTranslatorFromFile returns a function that can be used to translate, where possible, utf-8 strings to a form that is compatible with the specified code page. See UnicodeTranslator for more details.

fileStr identifies a font descriptor file that maps glyph positions to names.

If an error occurs reading the file, the returned function is valid but does not perform any rune translation.

type FontDescType Uses

type FontDescType struct {
    // The maximum height above the baseline reached by glyphs in this
    // font (for example for "S"). The height of glyphs for accented
    // characters shall be excluded.
    Ascent int
    // The maximum depth below the baseline reached by glyphs in this
    // font. The value shall be a negative number.
    Descent int
    // The vertical coordinate of the top of flat capital letters,
    // measured from the baseline (for example "H").
    CapHeight int
    // A collection of flags defining various characteristics of the
    // font. (See the FontFlag* constants.)
    Flags int
    // A rectangle, expressed in the glyph coordinate system, that
    // shall specify the font bounding box. This should be the smallest
    // rectangle enclosing the shape that would result if all of the
    // glyphs of the font were placed with their origins coincident
    // and then filled.
    FontBBox fontBoxType
    // The angle, expressed in degrees counterclockwise from the
    // vertical, of the dominant vertical strokes of the font. (The
    // 9-o’clock position is 90 degrees, and the 3-o’clock position
    // is –90 degrees.) The value shall be negative for fonts that
    // slope to the right, as almost all italic fonts do.
    ItalicAngle int
    // The thickness, measured horizontally, of the dominant vertical
    // stems of glyphs in the font.
    StemV int
    // The width to use for character codes whose widths are not
    // specified in a font dictionary’s Widths array. This shall have
    // a predictable effect only if all such codes map to glyphs whose
    // actual widths are the same as the value of the MissingWidth
    // entry. (Default value: 0.)
    MissingWidth int
}

FontDescType (font descriptor) specifies metrics and other attributes of a font, as distinct from the metrics of individual glyphs (as defined in the pdf specification).

type FontLoader Uses

type FontLoader interface {
    Open(name string) (io.Reader, error)
}

FontLoader is used to read fonts (JSON font specification and zlib compressed font binaries) from arbitrary locations (e.g. files, zip files, embedded font resources).

Open provides an io.Reader for the specified font file (.json or .z). The file name never includes a path. Open returns an error if the specified file cannot be opened.

type Fpdf Uses

type Fpdf struct {
    // contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Fpdf is the principal structure for creating a single PDF document

func New Uses

func New(orientationStr, unitStr, sizeStr, fontDirStr string) (f *Fpdf)

New returns a pointer to a new Fpdf instance. Its methods are subsequently called to produce a single PDF document.

orientationStr specifies the default page orientation. For portrait mode, specify "P" or "Portrait". For landscape mode, specify "L" or "Landscape". An empty string will be replaced with "P".

unitStr specifies the unit of length used in size parameters for elements other than fonts, which are always measured in points. Specify "pt" for point, "mm" for millimeter, "cm" for centimeter, or "in" for inch. An empty string will be replaced with "mm".

sizeStr specifies the page size. Acceptable values are "A3", "A4", "A5", "Letter", or "Legal". An empty string will be replaced with "A4".

fontDirStr specifies the file system location in which font resources will be found. An empty string is replaced with ".". This argument only needs to reference an actual directory if a font other than one of the core fonts is used. The core fonts are "courier", "helvetica" (also called "arial"), "times", and "zapfdingbats" (also called "symbol").

func NewCustom Uses

func NewCustom(init *InitType) (f *Fpdf)

NewCustom returns a pointer to a new Fpdf instance. Its methods are subsequently called to produce a single PDF document. NewCustom() is an alternative to New() that provides additional customization. The PageSize() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) AddFont Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AddFont(familyStr, styleStr, fileStr string)

AddFont imports a TrueType, OpenType or Type1 font and makes it available. It is necessary to generate a font definition file first with the makefont utility. It is not necessary to call this function for the core PDF fonts (courier, helvetica, times, zapfdingbats).

The JSON definition file (and the font file itself when embedding) must be present in the font directory. If it is not found, the error "Could not include font definition file" is set.

family specifies the font family. The name can be chosen arbitrarily. If it is a standard family name, it will override the corresponding font. This string is used to subsequently set the font with the SetFont method.

style specifies the font style. Acceptable values are (case insensitive) the empty string for regular style, "B" for bold, "I" for italic, or "BI" or "IB" for bold and italic combined.

fileStr specifies the base name with ".json" extension of the font definition file to be added. The file will be loaded from the font directory specified in the call to New() or SetFontLocation().

This example demonstrates the use of a non-standard font.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", example.FontDir())
pdf.AddFont("Calligrapher", "", "calligra.json")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Calligrapher", "", 35)
pdf.Cell(0, 10, "Enjoy new fonts with FPDF!")
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_AddFont")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

Successfully generated pdf/Fpdf_AddFont.pdf

func (*Fpdf) AddFontFromBytes Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AddFontFromBytes(familyStr string, styleStr string, jsonFileBytes []byte, zFileBytes []byte)

AddFontFromBytes imports a TrueType, OpenType or Type1 font from static bytes within the executable and makes it available for use in the generated document.

family specifies the font family. The name can be chosen arbitrarily. If it is a standard family name, it will override the corresponding font. This string is used to subsequently set the font with the SetFont method.

style specifies the font style. Acceptable values are (case insensitive) the empty string for regular style, "B" for bold, "I" for italic, or "BI" or "IB" for bold and italic combined.

jsonFileBytes contain all bytes of JSON file.

zFileBytes contain all bytes of Z file.

This example demonstrate how to use embedded fonts from byte array

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.AddFontFromBytes("calligra", "", files.CalligraJson, files.CalligraZ)
pdf.SetFont("calligra", "", 16)
pdf.Cell(40, 10, "Hello World With Embedded Font!")
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_EmbeddedFont")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

Successfully generated pdf/Fpdf_EmbeddedFont.pdf

func (*Fpdf) AddFontFromReader Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AddFontFromReader(familyStr, styleStr string, r io.Reader)

AddFontFromReader imports a TrueType, OpenType or Type1 font and makes it available using a reader that satisifies the io.Reader interface. See AddFont for details about familyStr and styleStr.

func (*Fpdf) AddLayer Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AddLayer(name string, visible bool) (layerID int)

AddLayer defines a layer that can be shown or hidden when the document is displayed. name specifies the layer name that the document reader will display in the layer list. visible specifies whether the layer will be initially visible. The return value is an integer ID that is used in a call to BeginLayer().

This example demonstrates document layers. The initial visibility of a layer is specified with the second parameter to AddLayer(). The layer list displayed by the document reader allows layer visibility to be controlled interactively.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Arial", "", 15)
pdf.Write(8, "This line doesn't belong to any layer.\n")

// Define layers
l1 := pdf.AddLayer("Layer 1", true)
l2 := pdf.AddLayer("Layer 2", true)

// Open layer pane in PDF viewer
pdf.OpenLayerPane()

// First layer
pdf.BeginLayer(l1)
pdf.Write(8, "This line belongs to layer 1.\n")
pdf.EndLayer()

// Second layer
pdf.BeginLayer(l2)
pdf.Write(8, "This line belongs to layer 2.\n")
pdf.EndLayer()

// First layer again
pdf.BeginLayer(l1)
pdf.Write(8, "This line belongs to layer 1 again.\n")
pdf.EndLayer()

fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_AddLayer")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

Successfully generated pdf/Fpdf_AddLayer.pdf
func (f *Fpdf) AddLink() int

AddLink creates a new internal link and returns its identifier. An internal link is a clickable area which directs to another place within the document. The identifier can then be passed to Cell(), Write(), Image() or Link(). The destination is defined with SetLink().

func (*Fpdf) AddPage Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AddPage()

AddPage adds a new page to the document. If a page is already present, the Footer() method is called first to output the footer. Then the page is added, the current position set to the top-left corner according to the left and top margins, and Header() is called to display the header.

The font which was set before calling is automatically restored. There is no need to call SetFont() again if you want to continue with the same font. The same is true for colors and line width.

The origin of the coordinate system is at the top-left corner and increasing ordinates go downwards.

See AddPageFormat() for a version of this method that allows the page size and orientation to be different than the default.

This example demonsrates the generation of headers, footers and page breaks.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.SetHeaderFunc(func() {
    pdf.Image(example.ImageFile("logo.png"), 10, 6, 30, 0, false, "", 0, "")
    pdf.SetY(5)
    pdf.SetFont("Arial", "B", 15)
    pdf.Cell(80, 0, "")
    pdf.CellFormat(30, 10, "Title", "1", 0, "C", false, 0, "")
    pdf.Ln(20)
})
pdf.SetFooterFunc(func() {
    pdf.SetY(-15)
    pdf.SetFont("Arial", "I", 8)
    pdf.CellFormat(0, 10, fmt.Sprintf("Page %d/{nb}", pdf.PageNo()),
        "", 0, "C", false, 0, "")
})
pdf.AliasNbPages("")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Times", "", 12)
for j := 1; j <= 40; j++ {
    pdf.CellFormat(0, 10, fmt.Sprintf("Printing line number %d", j),
        "", 1, "", false, 0, "")
}
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_AddPage")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

Successfully generated pdf/Fpdf_AddPage.pdf

func (*Fpdf) AddPageFormat Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AddPageFormat(orientationStr string, size SizeType)

AddPageFormat adds a new page with non-default orientation or size. See AddPage() for more details.

See New() for a description of orientationStr.

size specifies the size of the new page in the units established in New().

The PageSize() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) AliasNbPages Uses

func (f *Fpdf) AliasNbPages(aliasStr string)

AliasNbPages defines an alias for the total number of pages. It will be substituted as the document is closed. An empty string is replaced with the string "{nb}".

See the example for AddPage() for a demonstration of this method.

func (*Fpdf) Arc Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Arc(x, y, rx, ry, degRotate, degStart, degEnd float64, styleStr string)

Arc draws an elliptical arc centered at point (x, y). rx and ry specify its horizontal and vertical radii.

degRotate specifies the angle that the arc will be rotated. degStart and degEnd specify the starting and ending angle of the arc. All angles are specified in degrees and measured counter-clockwise from the 3 o'clock position.

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color, line width, and cap style centered on the arc's path. Filling uses the current fill color.

The Circle() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) ArcTo Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ArcTo(x, y, rx, ry, degRotate, degStart, degEnd float64)

ArcTo draws an elliptical arc centered at point (x, y). rx and ry specify its horizontal and vertical radii. If the start of the arc is not at the current position, a connecting line will be drawn.

degRotate specifies the angle that the arc will be rotated. degStart and degEnd specify the starting and ending angle of the arc. All angles are specified in degrees and measured counter-clockwise from the 3 o'clock position.

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color, line width, and cap style centered on the arc's path. Filling uses the current fill color.

The MoveTo() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) BeginLayer Uses

func (f *Fpdf) BeginLayer(id int)

BeginLayer is called to begin adding content to the specified layer. All content added to the page between a call to BeginLayer and a call to EndLayer is added to the layer specified by id. See AddLayer for more details.

func (*Fpdf) Beziergon Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Beziergon(points []PointType, styleStr string)

Beziergon draws a closed figure defined by a series of cubic Bézier curve segments. The first point in the slice defines the starting point of the figure. Each three following points p1, p2, p3 represent a curve segment to the point p3 using p1 and p2 as the Bézier control points.

The x and y fields of the points use the units established in New().

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color and line width centered on the ellipse's perimeter. Filling uses the current fill color.

This example demonstrates the Beziergon function.

func (*Fpdf) Bookmark Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Bookmark(txtStr string, level int, y float64)

Bookmark sets a bookmark that will be displayed in a sidebar outline. txtStr is the title of the bookmark. level specifies the level of the bookmark in the outline; 0 is the top level, 1 is just below, and so on. y specifies the vertical position of the bookmark destination in the current page; -1 indicates the current position.

This example demonstrates the Bookmark method.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Arial", "", 15)
pdf.Bookmark("Page 1", 0, 0)
pdf.Bookmark("Paragraph 1", 1, -1)
pdf.Cell(0, 6, "Paragraph 1")
pdf.Ln(50)
pdf.Bookmark("Paragraph 2", 1, -1)
pdf.Cell(0, 6, "Paragraph 2")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.Bookmark("Page 2", 0, 0)
pdf.Bookmark("Paragraph 3", 1, -1)
pdf.Cell(0, 6, "Paragraph 3")
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_Bookmark")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)

func (*Fpdf) Cell Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Cell(w, h float64, txtStr string)

Cell is a simpler version of CellFormat with no fill, border, links or special alignment.

func (*Fpdf) CellFormat Uses

func (f *Fpdf) CellFormat(w, h float64, txtStr string, borderStr string, ln int, alignStr string, fill bool, link int, linkStr string)

CellFormat prints a rectangular cell with optional borders, background color and character string. The upper-left corner of the cell corresponds to the current position. The text can be aligned or centered. After the call, the current position moves to the right or to the next line. It is possible to put a link on the text.

If automatic page breaking is enabled and the cell goes beyond the limit, a page break is done before outputting.

w and h specify the width and height of the cell. If w is 0, the cell extends up to the right margin. Specifying 0 for h will result in no output, but the current position will be advanced by w.

txtStr specifies the text to display.

borderStr specifies how the cell border will be drawn. An empty string indicates no border, "1" indicates a full border, and one or more of "L", "T", "R" and "B" indicate the left, top, right and bottom sides of the border.

ln indicates where the current position should go after the call. Possible values are 0 (to the right), 1 (to the beginning of the next line), and 2 (below). Putting 1 is equivalent to putting 0 and calling Ln() just after.

alignStr specifies how the text is to be positioned within the cell. Horizontal alignment is controlled by including "L", "C" or "R" (left, center, right) in alignStr. Vertical alignment is controlled by including "T", "M", "B" or "A" (top, middle, bottom, baseline) in alignStr. The default alignment is left middle.

fill is true to paint the cell background or false to leave it transparent.

link is the identifier returned by AddLink() or 0 for no internal link.

linkStr is a target URL or empty for no external link. A non--zero value for link takes precedence over linkStr.

This example demonstrates Stefan Schroeder's code to control vertical alignment.

Code:

type recType struct {
    align, txt string
}
recList := []recType{
    {"TL", "top left"},
    {"TC", "top center"},
    {"TR", "top right"},
    {"LM", "middle left"},
    {"CM", "middle center"},
    {"RM", "middle right"},
    {"BL", "bottom left"},
    {"BC", "bottom center"},
    {"BR", "bottom right"},
}
recListBaseline := []recType{
    {"AL", "baseline left"},
    {"AC", "baseline center"},
    {"AR", "baseline right"},
}
var formatRect = func(pdf *gofpdf.Fpdf, recList []recType) {

func (*Fpdf) Cellf Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Cellf(w, h float64, fmtStr string, args ...interface{})

Cellf is a simpler printf-style version of CellFormat with no fill, border, links or special alignment. See documentation for the fmt package for details on fmtStr and args.

func (*Fpdf) Circle Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Circle(x, y, r float64, styleStr string)

Circle draws a circle centered on point (x, y) with radius r.

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color and line width centered on the circle's perimeter. Filling uses the current fill color.

This example demonstrates the construction of various geometric figures,

func (*Fpdf) ClearError Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ClearError()

ClearError unsets the internal Fpdf error. This method should be used with care, as an internal error condition usually indicates an unrecoverable problem with the generation of a document. It is intended to deal with cases in which an error is used to select an alternate form of the document.

func (*Fpdf) ClipCircle Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ClipCircle(x, y, r float64, outline bool)

ClipCircle begins a circular clipping operation. The circle is centered at (x, y) and has radius r. outline is true to draw a border with the current draw color and line width centered on the circle's perimeter. Only the outer half of the border will be shown. After calling this method, all rendering operations (for example, Image(), LinearGradient(), etc) will be clipped by the specified circle. Call ClipEnd() to restore unclipped operations.

The ClipText() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) ClipEllipse Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ClipEllipse(x, y, rx, ry float64, outline bool)

ClipEllipse begins an elliptical clipping operation. The ellipse is centered at (x, y). Its horizontal and vertical radii are specified by rx and ry. outline is true to draw a border with the current draw color and line width centered on the ellipse's perimeter. Only the outer half of the border will be shown. After calling this method, all rendering operations (for example, Image(), LinearGradient(), etc) will be clipped by the specified ellipse. Call ClipEnd() to restore unclipped operations.

This ClipText() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) ClipEnd Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ClipEnd()

ClipEnd ends a clipping operation that was started with a call to ClipRect(), ClipRoundedRect(), ClipText(), ClipEllipse(), ClipCircle() or ClipPolygon(). Clipping operations can be nested. The document cannot be successfully output while a clipping operation is active.

The ClipText() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) ClipPolygon Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ClipPolygon(points []PointType, outline bool)

ClipPolygon begins a clipping operation within a polygon. The figure is defined by a series of vertices specified by points. The x and y fields of the points use the units established in New(). The last point in the slice will be implicitly joined to the first to close the polygon. outline is true to draw a border with the current draw color and line width centered on the polygon's perimeter. Only the outer half of the border will be shown. After calling this method, all rendering operations (for example, Image(), LinearGradient(), etc) will be clipped by the specified polygon. Call ClipEnd() to restore unclipped operations.

The ClipText() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) ClipRect Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ClipRect(x, y, w, h float64, outline bool)

ClipRect begins a rectangular clipping operation. The rectangle is of width w and height h. Its upper left corner is positioned at point (x, y). outline is true to draw a border with the current draw color and line width centered on the rectangle's perimeter. Only the outer half of the border will be shown. After calling this method, all rendering operations (for example, Image(), LinearGradient(), etc) will be clipped by the specified rectangle. Call ClipEnd() to restore unclipped operations.

This ClipText() example demonstrates this method.

    word := fmt.Sprintf("%d:%s", i, strings.Repeat("A", i%100))
    rows = append(rows, []string{word, word, word})
}

for _, row := range rows {
    _, lineHt := pdf.GetFontSize()
    height := lineHt + marginCell

    x, y := pdf.GetXY()
    // add a new page if the height of the row doesn't fit on the page
    if y+height >= pageh-mbottom {
        pdf.AddPage()
        x, y = pdf.GetXY()
    }
    for i, txt := range row {
        width := cols[i]
        pdf.Rect(x, y, width, height, "")

func (*Fpdf) CreateTemplateCustom Uses

func (f *Fpdf) CreateTemplateCustom(corner PointType, size SizeType, fn func(*Tpl)) Template

CreateTemplateCustom starts a template, using the given bounds.

func (*Fpdf) Curve Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Curve(x0, y0, cx, cy, x1, y1 float64, styleStr string)

Curve draws a single-segment quadratic Bézier curve. The curve starts at the point (x0, y0) and ends at the point (x1, y1). The control point (cx, cy) specifies the curvature. At the start point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the start point and the control point. At the end point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the end point and the control point.

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color, line width, and cap style centered on the curve's path. Filling uses the current fill color.

The Circle() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) CurveBezierCubic Uses

func (f *Fpdf) CurveBezierCubic(x0, y0, cx0, cy0, cx1, cy1, x1, y1 float64, styleStr string)

CurveBezierCubic draws a single-segment cubic Bézier curve. The curve starts at the point (x0, y0) and ends at the point (x1, y1). The control points (cx0, cy0) and (cx1, cy1) specify the curvature. At the start point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the start point and the control point (cx0, cy0). At the end point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the end point and the control point (cx1, cy1).

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color, line width, and cap style centered on the curve's path. Filling uses the current fill color.

This routine performs the same function as CurveCubic() but uses standard argument order.

The Circle() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) CurveBezierCubicTo Uses

func (f *Fpdf) CurveBezierCubicTo(cx0, cy0, cx1, cy1, x, y float64)

CurveBezierCubicTo creates a single-segment cubic Bézier curve. The curve starts at the current stylus location and ends at the point (x, y). The control points (cx0, cy0) and (cx1, cy1) specify the curvature. At the current stylus, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the current stylus location and the control point (cx0, cy0). At the end point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the end point and the control point (cx1, cy1).

The MoveTo() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) CurveTo Uses

func (f *Fpdf) CurveTo(cx, cy, x, y float64)

CurveTo creates a single-segment quadratic Bézier curve. The curve starts at the current stylus location and ends at the point (x, y). The control point (cx, cy) specifies the curvature. At the start point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the current stylus location and the control point. At the end point, the curve is tangent to the straight line between the end point and the control point.

The MoveTo() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) DrawPath Uses

func (f *Fpdf) DrawPath(styleStr string)

DrawPath actually draws the path on the page.

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Path-painting operators as defined in the PDF specification are also allowed: "S" (Stroke the path), "s" (Close and stroke the path), "f" (fill the path, using the nonzero winding number), "f*" (Fill the path, using the even-odd rule), "B" (Fill and then stroke the path, using the nonzero winding number rule), "B*" (Fill and then stroke the path, using the even-odd rule), "b" (Close, fill, and then stroke the path, using the nonzero winding number rule) and "b*" (Close, fill, and then stroke the path, using the even-odd rule). Drawing uses the current draw color, line width, and cap style centered on the path. Filling uses the current fill color.

The MoveTo() example demonstrates this method.

This example demonstrates various fill modes.

func (*Fpdf) ImageOptions Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ImageOptions(imageNameStr string, x, y, w, h float64, flow bool, options ImageOptions, link int, linkStr string)

ImageOptions puts a JPEG, PNG or GIF image in the current page. The size it will take on the page can be specified in different ways. If both w and h are 0, the image is rendered at 96 dpi. If either w or h is zero, it will be calculated from the other dimension so that the aspect ratio is maintained. If w and/or h are -1, the dpi for that dimension will be read from the ImageInfoType object. PNG files can contain dpi information, and if present, this information will be populated in the ImageInfoType object and used in Width, Height, and Extent calculations. Otherwise, the SetDpi function can be used to change the dpi from the default of 72.

If w and h are any other negative value, their absolute values indicate their dpi extents.

Supported JPEG formats are 24 bit, 32 bit and gray scale. Supported PNG formats are 24 bit, indexed color, and 8 bit indexed gray scale. If a GIF image is animated, only the first frame is rendered. Transparency is supported. It is possible to put a link on the image.

imageNameStr may be the name of an image as registered with a call to either RegisterImageReader() or RegisterImage(). In the first case, the image is loaded using an io.Reader. This is generally useful when the image is obtained from some other means than as a disk-based file. In the second case, the image is loaded as a file. Alternatively, imageNameStr may directly specify a sufficiently qualified filename.

However the image is loaded, if it is used more than once only one copy is embedded in the file.

If x is negative, the current abscissa is used.

If flow is true, the current y value is advanced after placing the image and a page break may be made if necessary.

If link refers to an internal page anchor (that is, it is non-zero; see AddLink()), the image will be a clickable internal link. Otherwise, if linkStr specifies a URL, the image will be a clickable external link.

func (*Fpdf) ImageTypeFromMime Uses

func (f *Fpdf) ImageTypeFromMime(mimeStr string) (tp string)

ImageTypeFromMime returns the image type used in various image-related functions (for example, Image()) that is associated with the specified MIME type. For example, "jpg" is returned if mimeStr is "image/jpeg". An error is set if the specified MIME type is not supported.

func (*Fpdf) Line Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Line(x1, y1, x2, y2 float64)

Line draws a line between points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) using the current draw color, line width and cap style.

func (*Fpdf) LineTo Uses

func (f *Fpdf) LineTo(x, y float64)

LineTo creates a line from the current stylus location to (x, y), which becomes the new stylus location. Note that this only creates the line in the path; it does not actually draw the line on the page.

The MoveTo() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) LinearGradient Uses

func (f *Fpdf) LinearGradient(x, y, w, h float64, r1, g1, b1 int, r2, g2, b2 int, x1, y1, x2, y2 float64)

LinearGradient draws a rectangular area with a blending of one color to another. The rectangle is of width w and height h. Its upper left corner is positioned at point (x, y).

Each color is specified with three component values, one each for red, green and blue. The values range from 0 to 255. The first color is specified by (r1, g1, b1) and the second color by (r2, g2, b2).

The blending is controlled with a gradient vector that uses normalized coordinates in which the lower left corner is position (0, 0) and the upper right corner is (1, 1). The vector's origin and destination are specified by the points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). In a linear gradient, blending occurs perpendicularly to the vector. The vector does not necessarily need to be anchored on the rectangle edge. Color 1 is used up to the origin of the vector and color 2 is used beyond the vector's end point. Between the points the colors are gradually blended.

This example deomstrates various gradients.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("", "", "", "")
pdf.SetFont("Helvetica", "", 12)
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.LinearGradient(0, 0, 210, 100, 250, 250, 255, 220, 220, 225, 0, 0, 0, .5)

func (f *Fpdf) Link(x, y, w, h float64, link int)

Link puts a link on a rectangular area of the page. Text or image links are generally put via Cell(), Write() or Image(), but this method can be useful for instance to define a clickable area inside an image. link is the value returned by AddLink().

func (*Fpdf) LinkString Uses

func (f *Fpdf) LinkString(x, y, w, h float64, linkStr string)

LinkString puts a link on a rectangular area of the page. Text or image links are generally put via Cell(), Write() or Image(), but this method can be useful for instance to define a clickable area inside an image. linkStr is the target URL.

func (*Fpdf) Ln Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Ln(h float64)

Ln performs a line break. The current abscissa goes back to the left margin and the ordinate increases by the amount passed in parameter. A negative value of h indicates the height of the last printed cell.

This method is demonstrated in the example for MultiCell.

func (*Fpdf) MoveTo Uses

func (f *Fpdf) MoveTo(x, y float64)

MoveTo moves the stylus to (x, y) without drawing the path from the previous point. Paths must start with a MoveTo to set the original stylus location or the result is undefined.

Create a "path" by moving a virtual stylus around the page (with MoveTo, LineTo, CurveTo, CurveBezierCubicTo, ArcTo & ClosePath) then draw it or fill it in (with DrawPath). The main advantage of using the path drawing routines rather than multiple Fpdf.Line is that PDF creates nice line joins at the angles, rather than just overlaying the lines.

This example demonstrates the Path Drawing functions, such as: MoveTo, LineTo, CurveTo, ..., ClosePath and DrawPath.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.MoveTo(20, 20)
pdf.LineTo(170, 20)
pdf.ArcTo(170, 40, 20, 20, 0, 90, 0)
pdf.CurveTo(190, 100, 105, 100)
pdf.CurveBezierCubicTo(20, 100, 105, 200, 20, 200)
pdf.ClosePath()
pdf.SetFillColor(200, 200, 200)
pdf.SetLineWidth(3)
pdf.DrawPath("DF")
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_MoveTo_path")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

func (*Fpdf) MultiCell Uses

func (f *Fpdf) MultiCell(w, h float64, txtStr, borderStr, alignStr string, fill bool)

MultiCell supports printing text with line breaks. They can be automatic (as soon as the text reaches the right border of the cell) or explicit (via the \n character). As many cells as necessary are output, one below the other.

Text can be aligned, centered or justified. The cell block can be framed and the background painted. See CellFormat() for more details.

The current position after calling MultiCell() is the beginning of the next line, equivalent to calling CellFormat with ln equal to 1.

w is the width of the cells. A value of zero indicates cells that reach to the right margin.

h indicates the line height of each cell in the unit of measure specified in New().

This example demonstrates word-wrapping, line justification and page-breaking.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
titleStr := "20000 Leagues Under the Seas"
pdf.SetTitle(titleStr, false)
pdf.SetAuthor("Jules Verne", false)
pdf.SetHeaderFunc(func() {
    // Arial bold 15
    pdf.SetFont("Arial", "B", 15)
    // Calculate width of title and position

func (*Fpdf) Ok Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Ok() bool

Ok returns true if no processing errors have occurred.

func (*Fpdf) OpenLayerPane Uses

func (f *Fpdf) OpenLayerPane()

OpenLayerPane advises the document reader to open the layer pane when the document is initially displayed.

func (*Fpdf) Output Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Output(w io.Writer) error

Output sends the PDF document to the writer specified by w. No output will take place if an error has occurred in the document generation process. w remains open after this function returns. After returning, f is in a closed state and its methods should not be called.

func (*Fpdf) OutputAndClose Uses

func (f *Fpdf) OutputAndClose(w io.WriteCloser) error

OutputAndClose sends the PDF document to the writer specified by w. This method will close both f and w, even if an error is detected and no document is produced.

func (*Fpdf) OutputFileAndClose Uses

func (f *Fpdf) OutputFileAndClose(fileStr string) error

OutputFileAndClose creates or truncates the file specified by fileStr and writes the PDF document to it. This method will close f and the newly written file, even if an error is detected and no document is produced.

Most examples demonstrate the use of this method.

func (*Fpdf) PageNo Uses

func (f *Fpdf) PageNo() int

PageNo returns the current page number.

See the example for AddPage() for a demonstration of this method.

func (*Fpdf) PageSize Uses

func (f *Fpdf) PageSize(pageNum int) (wd, ht float64, unitStr string)

PageSize returns the width and height of the specified page in the units established in New(). These return values are followed by the unit of measure itself. If pageNum is zero or otherwise out of bounds, it returns the default page size, that is, the size of the page that would be added by AddPage().

This example generates a PDF document with various page sizes.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.NewCustom(&gofpdf.InitType{
    UnitStr:    "in",
    Size:       gofpdf.SizeType{Wd: 6, Ht: 6},
    FontDirStr: example.FontDir(),
})
pdf.SetMargins(0.5, 1, 0.5)
pdf.SetFont("Times", "", 14)
pdf.AddPageFormat("L", gofpdf.SizeType{Wd: 3, Ht: 12})
pdf.SetXY(0.5, 1.5)
pdf.CellFormat(11, 0.2, "12 in x 3 in", "", 0, "C", false, 0, "")
pdf.AddPage() // Default size established in NewCustom()
pdf.SetXY(0.5, 3)
pdf.CellFormat(5, 0.2, "6 in x 6 in", "", 0, "C", false, 0, "")
pdf.AddPageFormat("P", gofpdf.SizeType{Wd: 3, Ht: 12})
pdf.SetXY(0.5, 6)
pdf.CellFormat(2, 0.2, "3 in x 12 in", "", 0, "C", false, 0, "")
for j := 0; j <= 3; j++ {
    wd, ht, u := pdf.PageSize(j)
    fmt.Printf("%d: %6.2f %s, %6.2f %s\n", j, wd, u, ht, u)
}
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_PageSize")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

func (*Fpdf) PointConvert Uses

func (f *Fpdf) PointConvert(pt float64) (u float64)

PointConvert returns the value of pt, expressed in points (1/72 inch), as a value expressed in the unit of measure specified in New(). Since font management in Fpdf uses points, this method can help with line height calculations and other methods that require user units.

func (*Fpdf) PointToUnitConvert Uses

func (f *Fpdf) PointToUnitConvert(pt float64) (u float64)

PointToUnitConvert is an alias for PointConvert.

func (*Fpdf) Polygon Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Polygon(points []PointType, styleStr string)

Polygon draws a closed figure defined by a series of vertices specified by points. The x and y fields of the points use the units established in New(). The last point in the slice will be implicitly joined to the first to close the polygon.

styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color and line width centered on the ellipse's perimeter. Filling uses the current fill color.

This example displays equilateral polygons in a demonstration of the Polygon function.

Code:

const rowCount = 5
const colCount = 4
const ptSize = 36
var x, y, radius, gap, advance float64
var rgVal int
var pts []gofpdf.PointType
vertices := func(count int) (res []gofpdf.PointType) {
    var pt gofpdf.PointType
    res = make([]gofpdf.PointType, 0, count)
    mlt := 2.0 * math.Pi / float64(count)
    for j := 0; j < count; j++ {
        pt.Y, pt.X = math.Sincos(float64(j) * mlt)
        res = append(res, gofpdf.PointType{
            X:  x + radius*pt.X,
            Y:  y + radius*pt.Y})
    }
    return
}
pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "") // A4 210.0 x 297.0
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Helvetica", "", ptSize)
pdf.SetDrawColor(0, 80, 180)
gap = 12.0
pdf.SetY(gap)
pdf.CellFormat(190.0, gap, "Equilateral polygons", "", 1, "C", false, 0, "")
radius = (210.0 - float64(colCount+1)*gap) / (2.0 * float64(colCount))
advance = gap + 2.0*radius
y = 2*gap + pdf.PointConvert(ptSize) + radius
rgVal = 230
for row := 0; row < rowCount; row++ {
    pdf.SetFillColor(rgVal, rgVal, 0)
    rgVal -= 12
    x = gap + radius
    for col := 0; col < colCount; col++ {
        pts = vertices(row*colCount + col + 3)
        pdf.Polygon(pts, "FD")
        x += advance
    }
    y += advance

func (*Fpdf) RadialGradient Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RadialGradient(x, y, w, h float64, r1, g1, b1 int, r2, g2, b2 int, x1, y1, x2, y2, r float64)

RadialGradient draws a rectangular area with a blending of one color to another. The rectangle is of width w and height h. Its upper left corner is positioned at point (x, y).

Each color is specified with three component values, one each for red, green and blue. The values range from 0 to 255. The first color is specified by (r1, g1, b1) and the second color by (r2, g2, b2).

The blending is controlled with a point and a circle, both specified with normalized coordinates in which the lower left corner of the rendered rectangle is position (0, 0) and the upper right corner is (1, 1). Color 1 begins at the origin point specified by (x1, y1). Color 2 begins at the circle specified by the center point (x2, y2) and radius r. Colors are gradually blended from the origin to the circle. The origin and the circle's center do not necessarily have to coincide, but the origin must be within the circle to avoid rendering problems.

The LinearGradient() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) RawWriteBuf Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RawWriteBuf(r io.Reader)

RawWriteBuf writes the contents of the specified buffer directly to the PDF generation buffer. This is a low-level function that is not required for normal PDF construction. An understanding of the PDF specification is needed to use this method correctly.

func (*Fpdf) RawWriteStr Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RawWriteStr(str string)

RawWriteStr writes a string directly to the PDF generation buffer. This is a low-level function that is not required for normal PDF construction. An understanding of the PDF specification is needed to use this method correctly.

func (*Fpdf) Rect Uses

func (f *Fpdf) Rect(x, y, w, h float64, styleStr string)

Rect outputs a rectangle of width w and height h with the upper left corner positioned at point (x, y).

It can be drawn (border only), filled (with no border) or both. styleStr can be "F" for filled, "D" for outlined only, or "DF" or "FD" for outlined and filled. An empty string will be replaced with "D". Drawing uses the current draw color and line width centered on the rectangle's perimeter. Filling uses the current fill color.

This example demonstrate wrapped table cells

Code:

marginCell := 2. // margin of top/bottom of cell
pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.SetFont("Arial", "", 12)
pdf.AddPage()
pagew, pageh := pdf.GetPageSize()
mleft, mright, _, mbottom := pdf.GetMargins()

cols := []float64{60, 100, pagew - mleft - mright - 100 - 60}
rows := [][]string{}
for i := 1; i <= 30; i++ {
    word := fmt.Sprintf("%d:%s", i, strings.Repeat("A", i%100))
    rows = append(rows, []string{word, word, word})

    curx, y := pdf.GetXY()
    x := curx

    height := 0.
    _, lineHt := pdf.GetFontSize()

    for i, txt := range row {
        lines := pdf.SplitLines([]byte(txt), cols[i])
        h := float64(len(lines))*lineHt + marginCell*float64(len(lines))
        if h > height {
            height = h
        }
    }
    // add a new page if the height of the row doesn't fit on the page
    if pdf.GetY()+height > pageh-mbottom {
        pdf.AddPage()
        y = pdf.GetY()
    }
    for i, txt := range row {
        width := cols[i]
        pdf.Rect(x, y, width, height, "")
        pdf.MultiCell(width, lineHt+marginCell, txt, "", "", false)
        x += width
        pdf.SetXY(x, y)

func (*Fpdf) RegisterImage Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RegisterImage(fileStr, tp string) (info *ImageInfoType)

RegisterImage registers an image, adding it to the PDF file but not adding it to the page. Use Image() with the same filename to add the image to the page. Note that Image() calls this function, so this function is only necessary if you need information about the image before placing it.

This function is now deprecated in favor of RegisterImageOptions. See Image() for restrictions on the image and the "tp" parameters.

This example demonstrates Lawrence Kesteloot's image registration code.

Code:

const (
    margin = 10
    wd     = 210
    ht     = 297
)
fileList := []string{
    "logo-gray.png",

    imageFileStr = example.ImageFile(str)
    infoPtr = pdf.RegisterImage(imageFileStr, "")
    imgWd, imgHt = infoPtr.Extent()
    switch j {
    case 0:
        lf = margin
        tp = margin
    case 1:
        lf = wd - margin - imgWd
        tp = margin
    case 2:
        lf = (wd - imgWd) / 2.0
        tp = (ht - imgHt) / 2.0
    case 3:
        lf = margin
        tp = ht - imgHt - margin
    case 4:

func (*Fpdf) RegisterImageOptions Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RegisterImageOptions(fileStr string, options ImageOptions) (info *ImageInfoType)

RegisterImageOptions registers an image, adding it to the PDF file but not adding it to the page. Use Image() with the same filename to add the image to the page. Note that Image() calls this function, so this function is only necessary if you need information about the image before placing it. See Image() for restrictions on the image and the "tp" parameters.

func (*Fpdf) RegisterImageOptionsReader Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RegisterImageOptionsReader(imgName string, options ImageOptions, r io.Reader) (info *ImageInfoType)

RegisterImageOptionsReader registers an image, reading it from Reader r, adding it to the PDF file but not adding it to the page. Use Image() with the same name to add the image to the page. Note that tp should be specified in this case.

See Image() for restrictions on the image and the options parameters.

func (*Fpdf) RegisterImageReader Uses

func (f *Fpdf) RegisterImageReader(imgName, tp string, r io.Reader) (info *ImageInfoType)

RegisterImageReader registers an image, reading it from Reader r, adding it to the PDF file but not adding it to the page.

This function is now deprecated in favor of RegisterImageOptionsReader

This example demonstrates the use of an image that is retrieved from a web server.

Code:

const (
    margin   = 10
    wd       = 210
    ht       = 297
    fontSize = 15
    urlStr   = "https://github.com/jung-kurt/gofpdf/blob/master/image/gofpdf.png?raw=true"
    msgStr   = `Images from the web can be easily embedded when a PDF document is generated.`
)

var (
    rsp *http.Response
    err error
    tp  string
)

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Helvetica", "", fontSize)
ln := pdf.PointConvert(fontSize)
pdf.MultiCell(wd-margin-margin, ln, msgStr, "", "L", false)
rsp, err = http.Get(urlStr)
if err == nil {
    tp = pdf.ImageTypeFromMime(rsp.Header["Content-Type"][0])
    infoPtr := pdf.RegisterImageReader(urlStr, tp, rsp.Body)
    if pdf.Ok() {
        imgWd, imgHt := infoPtr.Extent()
        pdf.Image(urlStr, (wd-imgWd)/2.0, pdf.GetY()+ln,
            imgWd, imgHt, false, tp, 0, "")
    }
} else {
    pdf.SetError(err)
}
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_RegisterImageReader_url")
err = pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

func (*Fpdf) SVGBasicWrite Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SVGBasicWrite(sb *SVGBasicType, scale float64)

SVGBasicWrite renders the paths encoded in the basic SVG image specified by sb. The scale value is used to convert the coordinates in the path to the unit of measure specified in New(). The current position (as set with a call to SetXY()) is used as the origin of the image. The current line cap style (as set with SetLineCapStyle()), line width (as set with SetLineWidth()), and draw color (as set with SetDrawColor()) are used in drawing the image paths.

This example demonstrates how to render a simple path-only SVG image of the type generated by the jSignature web control.

Code:

const (
    fontPtSize = 16.0
    wd         = 100.0
    sigFileStr = "signature.svg"
)
var (
    sig gofpdf.SVGBasicType
    err error
)
pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "") // A4 210.0 x 297.0
pdf.SetFont("Times", "", fontPtSize)
lineHt := pdf.PointConvert(fontPtSize)
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetMargins(10, 10, 10)
htmlStr := `This example renders a simple ` +
    `<a href="http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/">SVG</a> (scalable vector graphics) ` +
    `image that contains only basic path commands without any styling, ` +
    `color fill, reflection or endpoint closures. In particular, the ` +
    `type of vector graphic returned from a ` +
    `<a href="http://willowsystems.github.io/jSignature/#/demo/">jSignature</a> ` +
    `web control is supported and is used in this example.`
html := pdf.HTMLBasicNew()
html.Write(lineHt, htmlStr)
sig, err = gofpdf.SVGBasicFileParse(example.ImageFile(sigFileStr))
if err == nil {
    scale := 100 / sig.Wd
    scaleY := 30 / sig.Ht
    if scale > scaleY {
        scale = scaleY
    }
    pdf.SetLineCapStyle("round")
    pdf.SetLineWidth(0.25)
    pdf.SetDrawColor(0, 0, 128)
    pdf.SetXY((210.0-scale*sig.Wd)/2.0, pdf.GetY()+10)
    pdf.SVGBasicWrite(&sig, scale)
} else {
    pdf.SetError(err)
}
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_SVGBasicWrite")
err = pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

func (*Fpdf) SetAcceptPageBreakFunc Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetAcceptPageBreakFunc(fnc func() bool)

SetAcceptPageBreakFunc allows the application to control where page breaks occur.

fnc is an application function (typically a closure) that is called by the library whenever a page break condition is met. The break is issued if true is returned. The default implementation returns a value according to the mode selected by SetAutoPageBreak. The function provided should not be called by the application.

See the example for SetLeftMargin() to see how this function can be used to manage multiple columns.

This examples demonstrates Landscape mode with images.

Code:

var y0 float64
var crrntCol int
loremStr := lorem()
pdf := gofpdf.New("L", "mm", "A4", "")
const (
    pageWd = 297.0 // A4 210.0 x 297.0
    margin = 10.0
    gutter = 4
    colNum = 3
    colWd  = (pageWd - 2*margin - (colNum-1)*gutter) / colNum
)
setCol := func(col int) {
    crrntCol = col
    x := margin + float64(col)*(colWd+gutter)
    pdf.SetLeftMargin(x)
    pdf.SetX(x)
}
pdf.SetHeaderFunc(func() {
    titleStr := "gofpdf"
    pdf.SetFont("Helvetica", "B", 48)
    wd := pdf.GetStringWidth(titleStr) + 6
    pdf.SetX((pageWd - wd) / 2)
    pdf.SetTextColor(128, 128, 160)
    pdf.Write(12, titleStr[:2])
    pdf.SetTextColor(128, 128, 128)
    pdf.Write(12, titleStr[2:])
    pdf.Ln(20)
    y0 = pdf.GetY()
})
pdf.SetAcceptPageBreakFunc(func() bool {
    if crrntCol < colNum-1 {
        setCol(crrntCol + 1)
        pdf.SetY(y0)
        // Start new column, not new page
        return false
    }
    setCol(0)
    return true
})
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Times", "", 12)
for j := 0; j < 20; j++ {

func (*Fpdf) SetAlpha Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetAlpha(alpha float64, blendModeStr string)

SetAlpha sets the alpha blending channel. The blending effect applies to text, drawings and images.

alpha must be a value between 0.0 (fully transparent) to 1.0 (fully opaque). Values outside of this range result in an error.

blendModeStr must be one of "Normal", "Multiply", "Screen", "Overlay", "Darken", "Lighten", "ColorDodge", "ColorBurn","HardLight", "SoftLight", "Difference", "Exclusion", "Hue", "Saturation", "Color", or "Luminosity". An empty string is replaced with "Normal".

To reset normal rendering after applying a blending mode, call this method with alpha set to 1.0 and blendModeStr set to "Normal".

This example demonstrates alpha transparency.

Code:

const (
    gapX  = 10.0
    gapY  = 9.0
    rectW = 40.0
    rectH = 58.0
    pageW = 210
    pageH = 297
)
modeList := []string{"Normal", "Multiply", "Screen", "Overlay",
    "Darken", "Lighten", "ColorDodge", "ColorBurn", "HardLight", "SoftLight",
    "Difference", "Exclusion", "Hue", "Saturation", "Color", "Luminosity"}

pdf.SetLineWidth(2)
pdf.SetAutoPageBreak(false, 0)
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Helvetica", "", 18)
pdf.SetXY(0, gapY)
pdf.SetTextColor(0, 0, 0)
pdf.CellFormat(pageW, gapY, "Alpha Blending Modes", "", 0, "C", false, 0, "")
j := 0
y := 3 * gapY
for col := 0; col < 4; col++ {
    x := gapX
    for row := 0; row < 4; row++ {

        pdf.SetFont("Helvetica", "B", 12)
        pdf.SetFillColor(0, 0, 0)
        pdf.SetTextColor(250, 250, 230)
        pdf.SetXY(x, y+rectH-4)
        pdf.CellFormat(rectW, 5, modeList[j], "", 0, "C", true, 0, "")

func (*Fpdf) SetAutoPageBreak Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetAutoPageBreak(auto bool, margin float64)

SetAutoPageBreak enables or disables the automatic page breaking mode. When enabling, the second parameter is the distance from the bottom of the page that defines the triggering limit. By default, the mode is on and the margin is 2 cm.

func (*Fpdf) SetCatalogSort Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetCatalogSort(flag bool)

SetCatalogSort sets a flag that will be used, if true, to consistently order the document's internal resource catalogs. This method is typically only used for test purposes to facilitate PDF comparison.

func (*Fpdf) SetCellMargin Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetCellMargin(margin float64)

SetCellMargin sets the cell margin. This is the amount of space before and after the text within a cell that's left blank, and is in units passed to New().

func (*Fpdf) SetCompression Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetCompression(compress bool)

SetCompression activates or deactivates page compression with zlib. When activated, the internal representation of each page is compressed, which leads to a compression ratio of about 2 for the resulting document. Compression is on by default.

func (*Fpdf) SetCreationDate Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetCreationDate(tm time.Time)

SetCreationDate fixes the document's internal CreationDate value. By default, the time when the document is generated is used for this value. This method is typically only used for testing purposes to facilitate PDF comparsion. Specify a zero-value time to revert to the default behavior.

func (*Fpdf) SetCreator Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetCreator(creatorStr string, isUTF8 bool)

SetCreator defines the creator of the document. isUTF8 indicates if the string is encoded in ISO-8859-1 (false) or UTF-8 (true).

func (*Fpdf) SetDashPattern Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetDashPattern(dashArray []float64, dashPhase float64)

SetDashPattern sets the dash pattern that is used to draw lines. The dashArray elements are numbers that specify the lengths, in units established in New(), of alternating dashes and gaps. The dash phase specifies the distance into the dash pattern at which to start the dash. The dash pattern is retained from page to page. Call this method with an empty array to restore solid line drawing.

The Beziergon() example demonstrates this method.

func (*Fpdf) SetDisplayMode Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetDisplayMode(zoomStr, layoutStr string)

SetDisplayMode sets advisory display directives for the document viewer. Pages can be displayed entirely on screen, occupy the full width of the window, use real size, be scaled by a specific zooming factor or use viewer default (configured in the Preferences menu of Adobe Reader). The page layout can be specified so that pages are displayed individually or in pairs.

zoomStr can be "fullpage" to display the entire page on screen, "fullwidth" to use maximum width of window, "real" to use real size (equivalent to 100% zoom) or "default" to use viewer default mode.

layoutStr can be "single" (or "SinglePage") to display one page at once, "continuous" (or "OneColumn") to display pages continuously, "two" (or "TwoColumnLeft") to display two pages on two columns with odd-numbered pages on the left, or "TwoColumnRight" to display two pages on two columns with odd-numbered pages on the right, or "TwoPageLeft" to display pages two at a time with odd-numbered pages on the left, or "TwoPageRight" to display pages two at a time with odd-numbered pages on the right, or "default" to use viewer default mode.

func (*Fpdf) SetDrawColor Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetDrawColor(r, g, b int)

SetDrawColor defines the color used for all drawing operations (lines, rectangles and cell borders). It is expressed in RGB components (0 - 255). The method can be called before the first page is created. The value is retained from page to page.

func (*Fpdf) SetError Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetError(err error)

SetError sets an error to halt PDF generation. This may facilitate error handling by application. See also Ok(), Err() and Error().

func (*Fpdf) SetErrorf Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetErrorf(fmtStr string, args ...interface{})

SetErrorf sets the internal Fpdf error with formatted text to halt PDF generation; this may facilitate error handling by application. If an error condition is already set, this call is ignored.

See the documentation for printing in the standard fmt package for details about fmtStr and args.

func (*Fpdf) SetFillColor Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFillColor(r, g, b int)

SetFillColor defines the color used for all filling operations (filled rectangles and cell backgrounds). It is expressed in RGB components (0 -255). The method can be called before the first page is created and the value is retained from page to page.

func (*Fpdf) SetFont Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFont(familyStr, styleStr string, size float64)

SetFont sets the font used to print character strings. It is mandatory to call this method at least once before printing text or the resulting document will not be valid.

The font can be either a standard one or a font added via the AddFont() method or AddFontFromReader() method. Standard fonts use the Windows encoding cp1252 (Western Europe).

The method can be called before the first page is created and the font is kept from page to page. If you just wish to change the current font size, it is simpler to call SetFontSize().

Note: the font definition file must be accessible. An error is set if the file cannot be read.

familyStr specifies the font family. It can be either a name defined by AddFont(), AddFontFromReader() or one of the standard families (case insensitive): "Courier" for fixed-width, "Helvetica" or "Arial" for sans serif, "Times" for serif, "Symbol" or "ZapfDingbats" for symbolic.

styleStr can be "B" (bold), "I" (italic), "U" (underscore) or any combination. The default value (specified with an empty string) is regular. Bold and italic styles do not apply to Symbol and ZapfDingbats.

size is the font size measured in points. The default value is the current size. If no size has been specified since the beginning of the document, the value taken is 12.

func (*Fpdf) SetFontLoader Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFontLoader(loader FontLoader)

SetFontLoader sets a loader used to read font files (.json and .z) from an arbitrary source. If a font loader has been specified, it is used to load the named font resources when AddFont() is called. If this operation fails, an attempt is made to load the resources from the configured font directory (see SetFontLocation()).

This example demonstrates loading a non-standard font using a generalized font loader. fontResourceType implements the FontLoader interface and is defined locally in the test source code.

Code:

var fr fontResourceType
pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.SetFontLoader(fr)
pdf.AddFont("Calligrapher", "", "calligra.json")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Calligrapher", "", 35)
pdf.Cell(0, 10, "Load fonts from any source")
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_SetFontLoader")
err := pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

Generalized font loader reading calligra.json
Generalized font loader reading calligra.z

func (*Fpdf) SetFontLocation Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFontLocation(fontDirStr string)

SetFontLocation sets the location in the file system of the font and font definition files.

func (*Fpdf) SetFontSize Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFontSize(size float64)

SetFontSize defines the size of the current font. Size is specified in points (1/ 72 inch). See also SetFontUnitSize().

func (*Fpdf) SetFontUnitSize Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFontUnitSize(size float64)

SetFontUnitSize defines the size of the current font. Size is specified in the unit of measure specified in New(). See also SetFontSize().

func (*Fpdf) SetFooterFunc Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetFooterFunc(fnc func())

SetFooterFunc sets the function that lets the application render the page footer. The specified function is automatically called by AddPage() and Close() and should not be called directly by the application. The implementation in Fpdf is empty, so you have to provide an appropriate function if you want page footers. fnc will typically be a closure that has access to the Fpdf instance and other document generation variables.

This method is demonstrated in the example for AddPage().

func (*Fpdf) SetHeaderFunc Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetHeaderFunc(fnc func())

SetHeaderFunc sets the function that lets the application render the page header. The specified function is automatically called by AddPage() and should not be called directly by the application. The implementation in Fpdf is empty, so you have to provide an appropriate function if you want page headers. fnc will typically be a closure that has access to the Fpdf instance and other document generation variables.

This method is demonstrated in the example for AddPage().

func (*Fpdf) SetKeywords Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetKeywords(keywordsStr string, isUTF8 bool)

SetKeywords defines the keywords of the document. keywordStr is a space-delimited string, for example "invoice August". isUTF8 indicates if the string is encoded

This examples tests corner cases as reported by the gocov tool.

Code:

var err error
fileStr := example.Filename("Fpdf_SetKeywords")
err = gofpdf.MakeFont(example.FontFile("CalligrapherRegular.pfb"),
    example.FontFile("cp1252.map"), example.FontDir(), nil, true)
if err == nil {

    pdf.SetFontLocation(example.FontDir())
    pdf.SetTitle("世界", true)
    pdf.SetAuthor("世界", true)
    pdf.SetSubject("世界", true)
    pdf.SetCreator("世界", true)
    pdf.SetKeywords("世界", true)
    pdf.AddFont("Calligrapher", "", "CalligrapherRegular.json")
    pdf.AddPage()
    pdf.SetFont("Calligrapher", "", 16)
    pdf.Writef(5, "\x95 %s \x95", pdf)
    err = pdf.OutputFileAndClose(fileStr)
}
example.Summary(err, fileStr)

Output:

func (*Fpdf) SetLeftMargin Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetLeftMargin(margin float64)

SetLeftMargin defines the left margin. The method can be called before creating the first page. If the current abscissa gets out of page, it is brought back to the margin.

This example demonstrates the generation of a PDF document that has multiple columns. This is accomplished with the SetLeftMargin() and Cell() methods.

Code:

var y0 float64
var crrntCol int
pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.SetDisplayMode("fullpage", "TwoColumnLeft")

func (*Fpdf) SetProtection Uses

func (f *Fpdf) SetProtection(actionFlag byte, userPassStr, ownerPassStr string)

SetProtection applies certain constraints on the finished PDF document.

actionFlag is a bitflag that controls various document operations. CnProtectPrint allows the document to be printed. CnProtectModify allows a document to be modified by a PDF editor. CnProtectCopy allows text and images to be copied into the system clipboard. CnProtectAnnotForms allows annotations and forms to be added by a PDF editor. These values can be combined by or-ing them together, for example, CnProtectCopy|CnProtectModify. This flag is advisory; not all PDF readers implement the constraints that this argument attempts to control.

userPassStr specifies the password that will need to be provided to view the contents of the PDF. The permissions specified by actionFlag will apply.

ownerPassStr specifies the password that will need to be provided to gain full access to the document regardless of the actionFlag value. An empty string for this argument will be replaced with a random value, effectively prohibiting full access to the document.

This example demonstrates password protection for documents.

Code:

pdf := gofpdf.New("P", "mm", "A4", "")
pdf.SetProtection(gofpdf.CnProtectPrint, "123", "abc")
pdf.AddPage()
pdf.SetFont("Arial", "", 12)
pdf.Write(10, "Password-protected.")

}

ImageOptions provides a place to hang any options we want to use while parsing an image.

ImageType's possible values are (case insensitive): "JPG", "JPEG", "PNG" and "GIF". If empty, the type is inferred from the file extension.

ReadDpi defines whether to attempt to automatically read the image dpi information from the image file. Normally, this should be set to true (understanding that not all images will have this info available). However, for backwards compatibility with previous versions of the API, it defaults to false.

func TtfParse Uses

func TtfParse(fileStr string) (TtfRec TtfType, err error)

TtfParse extracts various metrics from a TrueType font file.

Code:

ttf, err := gofpdf.TtfParse(example.FontDir() + "/calligra.ttf")
if err == nil {
    fmt.Printf("Postscript name:  %s\n", ttf.PostScriptName)
    fmt.Printf("unitsPerEm:       %8d\n", ttf.UnitsPerEm)
    fmt.Printf("Xmin:             %8d\n", ttf.Xmin)
    fmt.Printf("Ymin:             %8d\n", ttf.Ymin)
    fmt.Printf("Xmax:             %8d\n", ttf.Xmax)
    fmt.Printf("Ymax:             %8d\n", ttf.Ymax)
} else {
    fmt.Printf("%s\n", err)
}

Output:

Postscript name:  CalligrapherRegular
unitsPerEm:           1000
Xmin:                 -173
Ymin:                 -234
Xmax:                 1328
Ymax:                  899
