Hi

I wonder how I can add a header and a footer from to docx that is html

I found this example:

$docx= new CreateDocx();


 

$html= '<p style="border: 2px solid black; color: red">A short text with a red border.</p>';


 

$rawWordML = $docx->embedHTML($html, array('rawWordML' => true, 'target' => 'defaultHeader'));

$html = $docx->createWordMLFragment(array($rawWordML));

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


 

$docx->createDocx('example_embedSimpleHTML');

but I got an php error:

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined method CreateDocx::createWordMLFragment()

This example was from 2014 som maybe it has been replaced???

Best Peder

Hello,

That code is from the old phpdocx 3 that is not compatible with the current stable version of phpdocx. The phpdocx API is compatible with all versions since phpdocx 4; new versions add new features, methods, classes and options.

You can add HTML in headers and footers using WordFragments:

require_once 'classes/CreateDocx.php';

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$htmlHeader = '<p style="border: 2px solid black; color: red">A short text with a red border in headers.</p>';
$headerFragment = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultHeader');
$headerFragment->embedHTML($htmlHeader);
$docx->addHeader(array('default' => $headerFragment));

$htmlFooter = '<p style="border: 2px solid black; color: red">A short text with a red border in footers.</p>';
$footerFragment = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultFooter');
$footerFragment->embedHTML($htmlFooter);
$docx->addFooter(array('default' => $footerFragment));

$htmlBody = '<p style="font-weight: bold;">Body content.</p>';
$docx->embedHTML($htmlBody);

$docx->createDocx('output');

On the practical guide you can find more information about WordFragments: https://www.phpdocx.com/documentation/practical/wordfragments-and-wordml

You can also generate headers and footers from HTML tags using HTML Extended available in Premium licenses:
