Hi

I just tried to use deleteTemplateBlock to remove a table when a list of items is empty, just like you try to do in your demo. However, only the tags $BLOCK_table$ are removed, not the actual content (a table, just like in your demo). I tried your demo with the IE and Firefox, LibreOffice and Word 2007, in all combinations the table is also still there in the final document.

Am I missing something? Did I not understand the idea behind deleteTemplateBlock()??

Would appreciate some hints and/or fixes...

Cheers,
Lorenz

Oops, posted too early, your demo works when I remove the empty input form, it seems, but still can't reproduce the functionality yet...

and another self-reply :)

Seems to be a LibreOffice problem. I rebuilt the template using M$ Word and it worked halfway, i.e. the table and the trailing $BLOCK_table$ where removed, the leading one was still there, probably some leftover artifact from LibreOffice.

solution:

use clearBlocks() at the end

My Template:



$BLOCK_A$

TABLE COL1      COL2                   

$VAR_R_MAN$   $VAR_R_COST$

$BLOCK_A$ 



Code Snippet:



$docx->deleteTemplateBlock('BLOCK_A');



...



$docx->clearBlocks();



Output:



Doesn't delete the table within the block. I see below in my generated doc.



TABLE COL1      COL2                   

$VAR_R_MAN$   $VAR_R_COST$



Any suggestions please?

My mistake.



NO : $docx->deleteTemplateBlock('BLOCK_A');



YES : $docx->deleteTemplateBlock('A');



It is mentioned in one of the examples that the prefix "BLOCK_" will be omitted from the argument. Would be nice if this is document here http://www.phpdocx.com/api-documentation/templates/delete-Word-template-block-content.



Thank you.
