TIP for Creating PDF Files from HTML / Image

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

after searching a lot for different possibilities, Alexander remembered me that we can use his components (https://delphihtmlcomponents.com/) to create very simply pdf files on the fly.

If you search for a component to create PDF files without much code from HTML (incl. using images files) use this code:

thtdocument.HTMLtoPDFFile(ahtmlstring:string; aPDFfile:string);

Thanks to @Alexander Sviridenkov for his wonderfull components.

Yes, but with thtdocument you do not have any dependencies to other libs/dll's ...

Browsers do not support page headers and footers, different page sizes/orientation, printing page number and count of pages, repeated table headers, etc.

Not sure where you got that from, browsers can do that perfectly fine.

 

Here is an example with TEdgeBrowser and no additional libraries in Delphi:

Printed, for example, in landscape orientation:
