Fields in PDF Export

Tom Fitz Apr 02, 2013 02:16AM PKT

Hi,

I have a table with many fields in it. On the grid, I use the select command to show only a few fields. But when I export to PDF, it is throwing the following exception: "TCPDF ERROR: Some data has already been output, can't send PDF file". I'm guessing that the error is because the PDF export is trying to include all the fields from the table, instead of just the ones I'm displaying.

Can you please provide information on how to resolve this?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi,

This error usually come when some html or text is sent to output before the $grid->render() function call. Please recheck.

Thanks.

Abu,

I've doubled check and there is nothing being sent to output before the render.

This error appears to occur when I filter 823 rows down to 4 rows and use the following:
$grid["export"] = array("format"=>"pdf", "filename"=>"merchant-income-report", "sheetname"=>"test");
$grid["export"] = array("filename"=>"merchant-income-report", "heading"=>"Merchant Income Report", "orientation"=>"landscape", "paper"=>"a4");
$grid["export"]["range"] = "filtered";


Thanks,
Tom

Can you check the response of HTTP call using firefox->firebug->response.
If your code is online somewhere, let me know the link.
