Hi

I would like to add a table to a template variable; is that possible and how?

I've a template with several variables in it,one should be replaced with atable that is created for each time;

I've done this:

first i've an array of arrays; $arrays
then I create an instance of an table
$table = CreateTable::getInstance();
after that I createTable with my data
$table -> createTable($arrays, array('border' => 'none',));

them I utf8_encode all my variables including the table, if I skip that I get error

and then I add the table to the variable (and all other ariables)
$doc -> addTemplateVariable("variable",$table)


The table is only added as a string of the xml code and not interpreted as a table ('<w:tbl><w:tblPr><w:tblStyle w:val="TableGridPHPDOCX"><..........')

version is Pro 3.2, and I thinnk I had this working on 2.x but now when I tried it the variable wasreplaced with emptiness.

Hello,

You can do that using replaceTemplateVariableByHTML method. You just need to write the HTML table and set the placeholder.

Hi

I probably missed to write this; the variable I'm trying to replace is itself within a table.

When using the suggested method nothing happends more than that the variable dissapears from the document.
When replacing avariablenot within another table it works.

Is thah how the function should work or is it a bug?
