The Easy Way to Convert Html to Pdf Using Php PDF, invented long ago by Adobe has become a standard in electronic documents exchange. When you convert a document to PDF it is supposed to look the same if you were to print it. This is very important to preserve structure in printable forms and important documents. On the down side, PDF are very bad for on screen reading specially on mobile devices. The fixed formatting of PDF documents means that it never fits well on the mobile screen. Either way, PDF are still in demand so it is important to know how to generate one from HTML. I have put together a simple tutorial that will show how you can convert HTML to PDF using PHP in only a few steps. I remember when I first had to convert HTML to PDF. I took a side job in which I was required to convert some HTML in a website into a PDF document for users to download. I tried searching online for a simple way to this but it was hard to find anything simple on converting HTML to PDF. I found lots of PHP libraries out there, but most of them were outdated and with very little or no documentation at all. After a while looking for a simple solution I found a really good PHP library with good documentation Dompdf. Dompdf is an HTML to PDF converter. At its heart, dompdf is (mostly) CSS 2.1 compliant...

Pushing elements into an array in Javascript Javascript Array Push push() method appends a new item to the last of an array. This is very useful, it allows you to add elements to an array fast an easy, something that you will find yourself doing a lot in javascript web programming. Javascript arrays are indexed at 0, with the last element on the array having an index one less than the length of the array. So if you had three elements on one array and wanted to access the second element you will have to reference it by its index, equal to its position minus one, [2-1]=1. ?View Code JAVASCRIPT1 2 3 4 var arr = ['item one', 'item two', 'item three']; console.log(arr[0]); // prints 'item one' console.log(arr[1]); // prints 'item two' console.log(arr[arr.length - 1]); // prints 'item three' In essence, array push() as mentioned above appends an element to the end of the array, so you can picture it like this: ?View Code JAVASCRIPT1 this[this.length] = element; Javascript Array Push VS Reference by Index However, it appears to actually be less efficient that what is represented above. According to  Javascript Style Guide, you should always use index when possible as they will outperform array push. In an experiment performed by Steven Hall, Steven proved google’s guidelines to be accurate, as his results showed that using index was after all was faster than using javascript array push method. However, this experiment was performed about 4 years ago, when browsers...

PHP Page Redirect Using The Header Function As a webmaster you have most likely come across a few redirects. Sometimes you need to simply redirect to another page, rather than changing links, which could be painful if you have too many. Fortunately redirects a fairly simple. And using PHP you can redirect to anywhere very easy. There are many ways to achieve a redirect. I will discuss the one that I always use in PHP, the header function. This method is considered to be the fastest and most reliable way to achieve a page redirect. To use this PHP page redirect method is very easy, all you will need to do is point to the new location (the redirect) inside the header function. Take a look a the code sample bellow: ?View Code PHP1 2 3 /* Redirect browser */ header("Location: http://www.webtricksandtreats.com"); exit(); It is always good practice to include exit() after to prevent any code that follows from being executed. Also, it is very important that the is nothing above the PHP header function that will be doing the redirect. There should not be any output abve it whatsoever, else it is very likely to fail. This is a common mistake to have empty spaces or lines above the header function. This will give you endless headaches, as you will try to figure out why a simple PHP page redirect is not working as it should, not taking into consideration an empty line above it. In addition, this...
