PHPdocx can create PDF documents creating first the docx and then transform it to PDF.


You only need to add the transform at the end of the document like this:



// You need to call also TransformDoc.inc to create a PDF
require_once '../../classes/TransformDoc.inc';
require_once '../../classes/CreateDocx.inc';

$docx = new CreateDocx();

$text = 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, ' .
'sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut ' .
'enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut' .
'aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit ' .
'in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. ' .
'Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui ' .
'officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.';

$paramsText = array(
'b' => 'single',
'font' => 'Arial'
);

$docx->addText($text, $paramsText);
$docx->createDocx('example_mixed');

// Creating the PDF
$document = new TransformDoc();
$document->setStrFile('example_mixed.docx');
$document->generatePDF();
