  • HTML2PDF User manual - Development mode

    Posted on July 24, 2012 by ext4mage

    Development mode

    The HTML2PDF module has an inbuilt function to set it in development mode this is very useful when making a template. You set the module into development mode in system settings.

    Be aware that development mode affects the entire module, so it is not possible to print any PDF’s in this mode. Alternative you can also set the module to inactive, so Magento PDF’s are used, and then use the preview function in the template screen.

    When in development mode the code breaks, and prints the templates information and html directly to the screen. The first thing you see is a long list of text like the on below, it contains 2 types of print-out.

    • The first Variable in template is the variable function being performed, you can see the variable code and then the Magento code that is translated into, and finally the real value it produces.
    • Second is the inline code, here you see the code being processed after all variables have been translated into real values. The next line is the html code after the processing, this is the code that will be used in to PDF generator

    If it is still not showing in the PDF as in the development mode print-out, then check the html code to see if anything here is wrong

    Last in the print-out the header, main and footer text is printed out in html. This is the final html code that is being sent to the PDF generator.

    If everything is looking fine in the development print-out, but not showing up in the PDF then check the html is well-formatted. Even if you are missing an end </b> can break the PDF generator.

    Schedule setup

    Under the schedule item you can, do the setup of all the schedules that shall be run. A schedule is when and what shall be sent by email to a receiver automatic. One order will only be sent once per schedule, so that they do not come double entries.

    Grid overview

    Here you get an overview off all schedules, with information of title, which file structure is used and when it is last been run automatic. One thing to notice is on the far right, here you can do a test send. That means that a email will be sent based on the schedule, but which orders has been sent will not be logged, and the last run timestamp is not updated.

    File structure setup

    Orders2CSV PRO magento extension - menu item

    Here you setup al information need the generate a CSV file from your orders. You find it under ext4mage in the navigations bar at the top of the page.

    Grid overview

    The first screen you will see is the grid overview, here all file structures are listed. By clicking on either the row or the edit link on the right side, you will get to the edit page of that element. You can also create a new by clicking on the Create new file structure button.

    General – element information

    Either way you choose the first screen you will see is the one below, here you setup the general stuff about the file structure that is selected.

    Magento orders2csvPRO extension file structure general

    Field description:

    • Title – The title of the file, will also be used as filename on generation
    • Status – The status of this element, only enabled will show up in configuration
    • Type – Define the type of the file structure, values are Order, Invoice, Shipment and Creditmemo
    • Delimiter -  This is the delimiter to be used in the generated CSV file
    • Enclosure – Set the character to be used to enclose value in the CSV file

    File columns

    The next thing you want to setup in your file structure, is the different column. There is no limit in the module of how many columns that you can have.

    Magento orders2csvPRO extension file structure column

    Field description:

    • Title – The title of the column, also to be used in the head row of the CSV file
    • Value – Put in the variable that shall be in the column, you can see all variable available in the help section of the extension – see more about how to use variables into the sections Variable use in column value, Formatting variables and Coding inline in value field.
    • Sort order – In which order this column shall be shown, from left to right

    The CSV file is buildup in the following way, that if it contains item, option or bundle variables it generates extra row for each of these, each of these repeating  the order information. Let me try to explain it with an example.

    You want to export 1 order, with 2 items in. One item has 2 options and the other is a bundle with 3 elements, then the column value will determent how many rows it generated like this:

    Contains values Order rows Item row Option/Bundle rows Total rows
    Only order value 1 1
    Order and item values 1 2 3
    Order, item, options 1 2 2 5
    Order, item, bundle 1 2 3 6
    Order, item, option, bundle 1 2
