I have a letter that is going to be printed by several clients all with varying sizes of letter headed paper. The header on their paper being different sizes not the paper. So I'd like to be able to dynamically specify a different size blank header each time a letter is generated depending on the client so whe the letter is printed by they it doesn't print all over the head on their letters. Whats the best way of using addHeader to add blank headers to pages?

I've tried addText("\n\r\n\r\n")

I've tried embedding html into a word fragement with a div of a fixed height.

What would you suggest?

The easiest solution is to use the embedHTML method adding <br> tags:


require_once 'classes/';

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$wf = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultHeader');

$docx->addHeader(array('default' => $wf));

$docx->addText('Document content');


Or you could use addBreak to add breaks in the WordFragment added to the header.

If the number of headers is limited, you could created empty DOCX templates with the headers and import them using the importHeadersAndFooters method. This method removes existing headers.
