im trying to create a pdf file via plugin.
How do i have to handle the line breaks from a Textarea for example. Either im getting just plain text in the pdf file or \n as written text in the pdf.
PDF: 123 or “1\n2\n3”
Thank you in advance.
you can use the html <pre> element. With it you can display formatted text exactly as you define it in your html document. You can read more about it here.
I tried this in a small example and got the following result:
Picture final PDF: See Attachment “PDF_withLinebreaks”
Picture text field: See Attachment “textField”
Code in the PDF Plugin template:
<h2>Welcome to the PDF Generator</h2>
<p>Content of text field saved as String</p>
Is this the format you are looking for?
Works perfectly now.
Huge thanks for the details.
