Hi
Guys

I need help… I want to making 1 controller for covert html to pdf…

Try using prawn gem (http://github.com/sandal/prawn) and prawnto plugin
(
http://github.com/thorny-sun/prawnto/). They create PDF files “on the
fly”.
Prawn is able to render images. (But, let me admit that, I have never
tried
rendering swf files :slight_smile: ).
There is an easy-to-follow example on GitHub (
http://github.com/ceekays/project-kanjedza/tree/master/inpatient).

But that html have amchart (swf). When I tried convert, the swf not
loadded…

Your statement sounds not complete, sorry I did not understand you
cleariy
on this.

What technology are you using to “export to PDF”? I hope there
should be a way of rendering the swf file (though it will be
motionless :slight_smile: ).

When I clicked that button, I want to exporting that page into
pdf… But the flash(swf) can be exported. it blank in pdf…

Let’s be frank here: the chances of an SWF file being rendered by any
PDF generator are slim to none. PrinceXML doesn’t support it, Prawn
doesn’t either, you might be lucky with wkhtmltopdf with the --enable-
plugins option, unless you are on linux, then apparently it doesn’t
work either.

The best way to achieve what you want is just switch from Flash charts
to a more open standard, i.e. something that is able to render charts
as either a bitmap or an SVG image (although I believe if you want to
render SVG in your PDF, Prawn won’t work either).

Best regards

Thank all.
I’m using wkhtmltopdf and the amchart.

Thank you for the logic. But amchart can;t convert into image. May be I
must
