Description

This script allows to merge data into a PDF form. Given a template PDF with text fields, it's possible to inject values in two different ways: The resulting document is produced by the Output() method, which works the same as for FPDF.

Note: if your template PDF is not compatible with this script, you can process it with PDFtk this way:

pdftk modele.pdf output modele2.pdf

Then try again with modele2.pdf.

Example

This example shows how to merge data from an array:
<?php

/***************************
  Sample using a PHP array
****************************/

require('fpdm.php');

$fields = array(
    'name'    => 'My name',
    'address' => 'My address',
    'city'    => 'My city',
    'phone'   => 'My phone number'
);

$pdf = new FPDM('template.pdf');
$pdf->Load($fields, false); // second parameter: false if field values are in ISO-8859-1, true if UTF-8
$pdf->Merge();
$pdf->Output();
?>
View the result here.
