yii2 generate pdf and attach in mail using kartik-v

Hi friends

While i was working with yii2 advanced project for my client,so i was intergrating the kartik-v mailer and pdf package.so while working on ecommerce for triggering mail on order place for customer and support,i came up with solution so i going to share experience here.

First config the common/config/main-local.php with mail setting like:

mailer’ => [
‘class’ => ‘yii\swiftmailer\Mailer’,
‘viewPath’ => ‘@common/mail’,
/ / send all mails to a file by default. You have to set
// ‘useFileTransport’ to false and configure a transport
// for the mailer to send real emails.
‘useFileTransport’ => false,
‘transport’ => [
‘class’ => ‘Swift_SmtpTransport’,
‘host’ => ‘smtp.gmail.com’,
‘username’ => ‘xxxxx@gmail.com’,
‘password’ => ‘xxxxxxxx’,
‘port’ => ‘587’,
‘encryption’ => ‘tls’,
//’useFileTransport’ => true,


And in controller function use this code:


$pdf = new Pdf([
// set to use core fonts only
‘mode’ => Pdf::MODE_CORE,
// A4 paper format
‘format’ => Pdf::FORMAT_A4,
// portrait orientation
‘orientation’ => Pdf::ORIENT_PORTRAIT,
‘cssInline’ => ‘.kv-heading-1{font-size:18px}body {color: #333333;}
th { vertical-align: top; background-color: rgb(60, 61, 58); color: #ffffff; }
td { vertical-align: top; }’,
// set mPDF properties on the fly
‘options’ => [‘title’ => ‘Quotation’],
// call mPDF methods on the fly
‘methods’ => [
$mpdf = $pdf->api;
$mpdf->WriteHTML($content); //pdf is a name of view file responsible for this pdf document
$path = $mpdf->Output(Yii::getAlias(‘@frontend’).’/web/uploads/pdf/’.$quotation.’.pdf’, ‘F’);// THIS WILL SAVE THE FILE IN PATH

$emailSend = Yii::$app->mailer->compose([‘html’ =>’order_confirm_customer’],[‘cartModelExist’=>$cartModelExist,’update_model_order’=>$update_model_order,’customer_detail’=>$customer_detail])
return $emailSend->send();

How to split full name from model into firstname and lastname in yii2 view and concat to save in yii2 model

First create a model of the table using GII tool in yii2,then by using CRUD option in GII create MVC file ,which has create,update function in controller and add rules in model like

[[‘first_name’,’last_name’], ‘trim’],
[[‘first_name’,’last_name’], ‘required’],
[[‘first_name’,’last_name’], ‘string’, ‘max’ => 50],

And variable above rules like

public $first_name;
public $last_name;

As the controller render update.php in view folder,the update file render _form.php

In  _form.php

I added the php code to split username into first name and last name

$parts = explode(” “, $model->name);
$lastname = array_pop($parts);
$firstname = implode(” “, $parts);

$model->first_name = $firstname;
$model->last_name = $lastname;

And the form fields like

<?= $form->field($model, ‘first_name’)->textInput([‘maxlength’ => true]) ?>
<?= $form->field($model, ‘last_name’)->textInput([‘maxlength’ => true]) ?>

In model concat the firstname and lastname into $model->name to save.

$model->name = $this->first_name.’ ‘.$this->last_name;
return $model->save();

My new experience with jquery

Disable the all  input fields with unique (ID) like numbers  in table :

$(“#table_id  input[type=’text’][id=” + id + “]”).prop({
disabled: true

Disable the all  Select fields with unique (ID)  like numbers in table :

$(“select[id=” + id + “]”).prop({
disabled: true

Change the placeholder text in input field of table by unique (ID) like numbers :

$(“#table_user_lists input[type=’text’][name=’user_name’][id=” + id + “]”).attr(‘placeholder’, user_name);

jquery change function by name attribute of array:

$(‘input[name =”name[]”]’).change(function () { });

Enable the select of unique (ID) on each:

$(“#table_id *[id]”).each(function () {
if ($(this).attr(‘id’) == id) {
$(this).prop(‘disabled’, false);

Points to Remember in Yii

1)Yii application is build using Model-View-Controller(MVC) architecture.

2) Yii implements two kinds of model form model (CFormModel class) and active records(CActiveRecord class),which are extended by same base class cmodel.

3)form model represent the logic for form fields validation and bussiness logic.

4)Active records is design pattern of database structure to abstract the data access in object oriented way.

5)Controller is responsible for taking form inputs,interacting with model and passing the updated info to the view.

6)The router is action taken place as user sent request to the application.
