When installed manually or via Composer in our Symfony2 project, we cannot use the CreateDocxFromTemplate class. Whilst the following works: $docx = new \CreateDocx(); the following does not: $docx = new \CreateDocxFromTemplate('path\to\some\template.docx'); CreateDocxFromTemplate is simply not available. What are we doing wrong? We cannot upgrade to the paid-for version unless we can achieve template variable replacement, and there is apparently no way to load a template into the CreateDocx object that doesn't completely replace its contents as soon as any action is performed on it.

Hello, There must be an issue/error in your code. The published post is Symfony 2.0/2.1 compatible. We are almost finishing a Symfony 2.3/2.4/2.5 post. You can ask for it at contact@phpdocx.com. Regards.

hi, I also have problem with CreateDocxFromTemplate(). I downloaded the trial version and hooked it to a module in ZF2. I can call CreateDocx() but CreateDocxFromTemplate() fails. I get error Fatal error: Class 'CreateDocxFromTemplate' not found in.... and the obfuscated content of CreateDocxFromTemplate.inc is dumped to browser. How did you solve this?

Hello, What license and version of phpdocx are you using? Regards.

We are testing with the demo license on osx and linux wit ZF2. I checked the example code (examples/Templates/...) I realised that I was not calling the function properly. This was my mistake. This is our code now: Module.php: public function getAutoloaderConfig() { return array( 'Zend\Loader\ClassMapAutoloader' => array( __DIR__ . '/autoload_classmap.php', array( 'CreateDocx' => __DIR__ . '/../../external/phpdocx/classes/CreateDocx.inc', ), ), 'Zend\Loader\StandardAutoloader' => array( 'namespaces' => array( // if we're in a namespace deeper than one level we need to fix the \ in the path __NAMESPACE__ => __DIR__ . '/src/' . str_replace('\\', '/' , __NAMESPACE__), ), ), ); } And in the controller: ... /* * First we must call CreateDocx() because that loads the requires phpdocx code. */ $docx = new \CreateDocx(); /* * Now we can use the actual template class. */ $docx = new \CreateDocxFromTemplate($templatefile); .... Now CreateDocxFromTemplate() works and we can continue evaluating. Thanks.
