[PDF Generator Web] How to use PDFGeneratorWeb
Forge component by Reyco Seguma

Published on 11 Feb 2020

I am trying to use this Forge component:

https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/7667/pdf-generator-web

However, how to use it is a complete mystery. There is a client action called 'CreatePDF' which give the error 'createPDF is not defined'. The documentation suggests to initialize the PDF as the first step, but it's not explained how to initialize it.

Does somebody have experience with using this module? Thanks!

Hi Remco,


Not sure if this would be of any help to you since I have not used that Forge Component yet but I would like to recommend one of the PDF Generators that I highly use which is Ultimate PDF.

UltimatePDF

https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/5641/ultimate-pdf

or

HTML2PDFConverter

https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-overview/209/html2pdfconverter


Both are quite easy to use, UltimatePDF relies on a Service Call and HTML2PDF needs to be configured for every environment but still easy to setup and consume for your applications.


I am not saying that I cannot recommend that tool you are inquiring about, I will definitely give this a try and see how I can assist further as well.

Just don't want you blocked with what you are trying to develop.


Regards,

Jose Littaua

Hi Remco,
I have just donwload the component and try it.
For solving the "createPDF is not defined", try to add these required scripts into your screen, as seen on demo application.

However, I haven't successfully create a custom page.
