Hello,

I am trying to achieve quite the same thing whitout success.

I have a basic template file :

$BLOCK_EXAMPLE$

Some not dynamic content.

Some dynamic content : $dynamic$

---

$BLOCK_EXAMPLE$

The cloning part works fine :

$datas = [];

for ($i=0;$i<5;$i++) {
    $docx->cloneBlock('EXAMPLE');
    $datas[] = 'number' . $i;
}

But the part where I try to populate all the differents $dynamic$ var with $datas doesn't :

foreach ($datas as $key => $item) {
    $docx->replaceVariableByHtml('dynamic', 'block', $item);
}

I end up with :

Some not dynamic content.

Some dynamic content : number0

---

(...)

---
Some not dynamic content.

Some dynamic content : number0

---

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

And I couldn't find any example with blocks having dynamic content inside in them. I've only find examples with blocks and static content inside.

Thanks for your help.
