Creation of PDF file

Hi Guys,

 

 I want to create a pdf of my vf page ,

 

 we can create like this way

 

pdfPage = page.product_delivery;//new PageReference('/apex/product_delivery1');
pdfPage.getParameters().put('id',oppid);
pdfPage.setRedirect(false);
Blob b=pdfPage.getContentAsPDF();

 

In my vf i am displaying some records with checkbox. When i click on Selected Button , It is displaying Selected Records.

 

I want to Create PDF for Selected Records only.

Hey prem,

Instead of generating a blob in the apex controller, have you tried using the 'renderAs' attribute for the apex:page tag in your product_delivery1 page? Something like this:

 

<apex:page renderAs="PDF">

...

</apex:page>

 

Then return the PageReference object rather than the blob in your apex method.

you can try to invoke the Selected button action using action attr of <apex:page> which will render only selected records in your pdf

Hi Gupta,

 

 I am selecting Records from that Vf page only...

You can render any page as a PDF by adding therenderAsattribute to the<apex:page>component, and specifying “pdf” as the rendering service which salesforce already provided.

 

<apex: page renderAs = "pdf">

just create a button in vf page.

 After selecting the records which you want as Pdf, then click on the button , it will convert to pdf.

for more reference use below link.

I also noticed a possible typo...your commented code is creating a page reference object using /apex/product_delivery1, but the actual code on that line uses page.product_delivery. Are you trying to point it to product_delivery1?
PremanathPremanath

No man product_delivery only

Hi Rout,

I have only tried to create PDF files with the help of some PDF tools. You can also google it and select a PDF SDK whose way of processing is simple and fast to help you with the related work. Remember to check its free trial package first if possible. I hope you success. Good luck.
