[3.5.0] Using the new PDF Invoices & Confirmations

As we want to have more flexibillity to create invoices we're going to make use of a new PDF library. This library is free of use and use can be downloaded from our Dropbox accunt, it is released under the GPL/GNU license. You can install the library by the Joomla installer and making templates immediately after the installation. When upgrading to the newest verison, a set of templates will be installed in your message center:

message center new pdf section

The first 2 items are for the confirmation, this one sends out a confirmation which can be edited by the HTML editor. No need anymore to use the old fashion (and way to difficult to edit) code editor. You can design a nice looking confirmation with all data which is already present in the classes. 

Directly available in all invoice and confirmation templates:

  1. The company data from your configuration
  2. All customer data is available in the template
  3. All amounts including VAT/Discounts/Fees are available.

For the invoice (the last 2 items) you have this same data available. 

Invoice and Confrmation Items

On the templates you need items, so these are also available by the editor. Now you can add all available data you need on the invoice and confirmations. Are you missing any information? Just let us know!
At the right side of the page you will see all available body tags for the invoice and confirmations, the only thing and knowledge you need... HTML :)

Ready Made Examples:

The examples below are made with the pre-installed templates we have installed already in your message center. So the only need it to download the library and install it /
After that you only need to eneble invoicing and confirmation if required.

You can see an example of an invoice here
