Examples for using jsPDF with Data URIs below. Go back to project homepage.

Simple two-page text document

var doc = new jsPDF();
doc.text(20, 20, 'Hello world!');
doc.text(20, 30, 'This is client-side Javascript, pumping out a PDF.');
doc.addPage();
doc.text(20, 20, 'Do you like that?');

doc.save('Test.pdf');
Run Code

Landscape document

var doc = new jsPDF('landscape');
doc.text(20, 20, 'Hello landscape world!');

doc.save('Test.pdf');
Run Code

Adding metadata

var doc = new jsPDF();
doc.text(20, 20, 'This PDF has a title, subject, author, keywords and a creator.');

// Optional - set properties on the document
doc.setProperties({
    title: 'Title',
    subject: 'This is the subject',
    author: 'James Hall',
    keywords: 'generated, javascript, web 2.0, ajax',
    creator: 'MEEE'
});

// Output as Data URI
doc.save('Test.pdf');

Example of user input

var name = prompt('What is your name?');
var multiplier = prompt('Enter a number:');
multiplier = parseInt(multiplier);

var doc = new jsPDF();
doc.setFontSize(22);
doc.text(20, 20, 'Questions');
doc.setFontSize(16);
doc.text(20, 30, 'This belongs to: ' + name);

for(var i = 1; i <= 12; i ++) {
    doc.text(20, 30 + (i * 10), i + ' x ' + multiplier + ' = ___');
}

doc.addPage();
doc.setFontSize(22);

Font-metrics-based line sizing and split

var pdf = new jsPDF('p','in','letter')
, sizes = [12, 16, 20]
, fonts = [['Times','Roman'],['Helvetica',''], ['Times','Italic']]
, font, size, lines
, verticalOffset = 0.5 // inches on a 8.5 x 11 inch sheet.
, loremipsum = 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, ...'

for (var i in fonts){
    if (fonts.hasOwnProperty(i)) {
        font = fonts[i]
        size = sizes[i]

        lines = pdf.setFont(font[0], font[1])
                    .setFontSize(size)
                    .splitTextToSize(loremipsum, 7.5)
        // Don't want to preset font, size to calculate the lines?
        // .splitTextToSize(text, maxsize, options)
        // allows you to pass an object with any of the following:
        // {
        //  'fontSize': 12
        //  , 'fontStyle': 'Italic'
        //  , 'fontName': 'Times'
        // }
        // Without these, .splitTextToSize will use current / default
        // font Family, Style, Size.

        pdf.text(0.5, verticalOffset + size / 72, lines)

        verticalOffset += (lines.length + 0.5) * size / 72
    }
}

pdf.save('Test.pdf');

fromHTML plugin

This (BETA level. API is subject to change!) plugin allows one to scrape formatted text from an HTML fragment into PDF. Font size, styles are copied. The long-running text is split to stated content width.

Header Two

Double style span Monotype span with carriage return. a humongous font size span. Followed by long parent-less text node. asdf qwer asdf zxcv qsasfd qwer qwasfd zcxv sdf qwer qwe sdf wer qwer asdf zxv.
Serif Inner DIV (bad markup, but testing block detection)
Sans-serif span with extra spaces Followed by text node without any wrapping element. And some long long text span attached at the end to test line wrap. qwer asdf qwer lkjh asdf zxvc safd qwer wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww qewr asdf zxcv.

This is a new paragraph.

This is more wrapping-less text.

This paragraph will NOT be on resulting PDF because a special attached element handler will be looking for the ID - 'bypassme' - and should bypass rendering it.

This is another paragraph.

Image Support

NOTES: the img src must be on the same domain or the external domain should allow Cross-origin.

New page added with html comment: ADD_PAGE

HTML Table:

NOTES: Must set the COLGROUP tag with "with" on each COL tag as %, inspect the table. BTW the css does not have a good style to render the table on the html :P, feel free to the add the CSS.
