German letter ä, ö, ü in rfpdf

Hi,

I need PDF creation in Rails and decided for RFPDF.
Everything works quite nice the only problem is that I can’t display
ä,ö,ü in the pdf documents.

I found a tutorial that says that I have to create a font config file
with MakeFont.

I did it, but now I don’t now where to put al this files.

Does anyone has experience with creating PDFs in Rails with ä,ü,ö
letters?

Thx

Adam

Hi Adam,
Thanx.
I try following code and it works fine for me.I test it only on linux
though.

enc = Iconv.new(‘Windows-1252’, ‘UTF-8’)

pdf.select_font(“Helvetica”)

@data=enc.iconv(“Persönlicher LS Vorhunden”)

table.data = [
{“name” => @data, “race” => " "}
]

then it display “Persönlicher LS Vorhunden” correctly.
