I have a php script that generates a pdf report. When we go to save the pdf document, the filename that Acrobat suggests is report_pdf, since the php script is named report_pdf.php. I would like to dynamically name the pdf file, so I don't have to type the appropriate name for the report each time that I save it.
Asking on a news group, someone suggested this, where
filename="July Report.pdf" is the intended name of the report
<? header('Content-Type: application/pdf'); header('Content-disposition: filename="July Report.pdf"');
But it doesn't work. Am I doing it wrong, or will this work at all? Is this a job for mod_rewrite?
So I've tried both
header('Content-disposition: inline; filename="July Report.pdf"');
header('Content-disposition: attachment; filename="July Report.pdf"');
( not at the same time ) and neither work for me. Is this a problem with my web host? For this url, here's my code:
<? header('Content-disposition: inline; filename="July Report.pdf"'); // requires the R&OS pdf class require_once('class.ezpdf.php'); require_once('class.pdf.php'); // make a new pdf object $pdf = new Cpdf(); // select the font $pdf->selectFont('./fonts/Helvetica'); $pdf->addText(30,400,30,'Hello World'); $pdf->stream(); ?>
