Hello,

I have a problem with replaceVariableByText method of phpdocx enterprise 5.1 (same bug with trial 5.5).

I have a docx template with this content:

Clef    Description Resultat
template.id     $template.id$
template.name       $template.name$
template.order      $template.order$
template.documentName       $template.documentName$
template.createdAt      $template.createdAt$

This is a short version of my code which reproduce the bug:

<?php

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

function createDocx()
{
    $templatePath = __DIR__.'/templates/template.docx';
    $docx = new \CreateDocxFromTemplate($templatePath);

    $values = [
        'template.id' => 16,
        'template.name' => 'foobar',
        'template.order' => 1,
    ];

    $docx->replaceVariableByText($values);

    $tmp = __DIR__.'/out/'.uniqid();
    $docx->createDocx($tmp);

    echo $tmp;
}

createDocx();

The content of generated docx is corrupted:

Clef    Description Resultat
template.id     16template.namefoobartemplate.order1
template.documentName       $template.documentName$
template.createdAt      $template.createdAt$

The problem seems to come from the parsing of docx file when creating the CreateDocxFromTemplate.

I dump $loadContent in replaceVariableByText() l.796 > variable2Text() l.1453 in debug file:

file_put_contents(__DIR__.'/../../../../out/'.uniqid().'.xml', $loadContent);

The content is already corrupted:

<w:t>template.id</w:t></w:r><w:r w:rsidRPr="00AA567C"><w:rPr><w:rFonts w:asciiTheme="minorHAnsi" w:hAnsiTheme="minorHAnsi" w:cs="Courier New"/><w:lang w:val="fr-FR"/></w:rPr><w:tab/></w:r><w:r w:rsidRPr="00AA567C"><w:rPr><w:rFonts w:asciiTheme="minorHAnsi" w:hAnsiTheme="minorHAnsi" w:cs="Courier New"/><w:lang w:val="fr-FR"/></w:rPr><w:tab/></w:r><w:r w:rsidR="00432CC9"><w:rPr><w:rFonts w:asciiTheme="minorHAnsi" w:hAnsiTheme="minorHAnsi" w:cs="Courier New"/><w:lang w:val="fr-FR"/></w:rPr><w:t>$template.id$template.name$template.name$template.order$template.order$</w:t>

Regards.

Hello,

Please send your template to contact[at]phpdocx.com and we'll check it. We have done some tests and everything is working fine, maybe there's some problem with the template that could be easily fixed.

UPDATE:

Thanks for the document. The problem is that paragraphs contain strings with the same name than the placeholders. Please use other placeholder names, such as:
 
$values = [
    'templateId' => 16,
    'templateName' => 'foobar',
    'templateOrder' => 1,
];
 
and it'll work fine.
 
Regards.
