Two Pilots forum / For software developers / Fit HTML to single A4 Landscape page
Author Message

I'm currently evaluating PDF Creator Pilot with HTML2PDF. I require a single-sheet pdf to be created from a single web page. The syntax I am using (in VB6) to try and achieve this is as follows:

Set pdf = CreateObject("PDFCreatorPilot2.piPDFDocument")
pdf.StartEngine "demo@demo", "demo"
pdf.AutoLaunch = False
pdf.FileName = "test.pdf"
pdf.PDFPAGE_Size = psA4
pdf.PDFPAGE_Orientation = poLandscape
a = pdf.PDFPAGE_Scale(0.6, 0.6)
Set html = CreateObject("HTML2PDFAddon.HTML2PDF")
html.StartHTMLEngine "", ""
html.MarginLeft = 72
html.MarginTop = 72
html.MarginRight = 72
html.MarginBottom = 72
html.ConnectToPDFLibrary pdf
html.LoadFromFile "test.html"
Set html = Nothing
Set pdf = Nothing

This - I believe - should have the effect of setting up the page as A4 landscape with a one inch margin all the way round and a reduction in size of 60% to allow the pdf to fit on the single page. It does however leave about a 4 inch top margin on the page, forcing the rest of the document on to two (portrait orientation) pages.

Any ideas as to how I achieve the single page (with margins and A4 landscape) would be gratefully received (and probably result in the choice of this software to fulfil our requirements)

Hello Richard!

HTML2PDF Add-on supports vertical auto-resizing currently but does not support horizontal auto-resizing and page can be clipped and clipped area will be drawn on the next page.

We will implement scaling in next versions of HTML2PDF Add-on.

Best regards,
