Hi esposito84,

I'm not clear what the second problem is?? Is it that actions after the TCPDF action are not executed? If so then either:

a) make the TCPDF action the last action - you need to do this if you want immediate download as ChronoForms loses control once the download is triggered. Or

b) set the TCPDF action to save the file to the server and NOT download immediately. Then the other actions will be run and you an show a download link (or force a download) from a later action.

Hi esposito84,

Save the PDF to the server and then you can attach it to an email and send it where you like.

Thank you very much,

if I set to dowload the form finish. Sorry bob another 2 question:

1) i can't to attact image in a pdf; this is code of contents. in the code there isn't mistake but pdf doesn'show a image(i use this code inchronoconnectivity and it is work):

$x = $form->data['azienda'];

$db =& JFactory::getDBO();

$query = 'SELECT `logo`, `ragione_sociale`, `via`, `numero`, `cap`, `citta`, `provincia`, `p_iva`, `prefisso_tel`, `tel`, `prefisso_fax`, `fax`, `sito`, `email`, `modalita`, `banca`, `iban`

FROM `sinc_chronoengine_chronoforms_datatable_dati_azienda`

WHERE `id`='.$x;


$nomes = $db->loadRow();

echo "<img src='".JURI::root()."/components/com_chronoforms5/chronoforms/uploads/dati_azienda/".$nomes[0]."' style='max-width:500px' />";


2) This is my second time in a blog and i don't know how to set as solved.

Hi esposito84,

Please try removing the \ before components as JURI::site() includes the trailing slash.

hi Bob,
doesn't working, i'm looking for a blog or tutial but i can't find id. the code is good i think becouse i use the same in the chronoconnectivity and work fine. Have you another idea or know some tutorial about it?
Thanks so much.

Hi esposito84,

The code you found should include an image in the body of the pdf but not in the Header - I see that you worked out a hack to do that.

Thanks bob, i tryed to read image in the body for twoday. I tryed also to "print" with tcpdf the windows of chronoforms but the image doesn't show in the pdf. Then, i read the code and i find the tcpdf logo and for me is better becouse i must do a invoice :-). the method is rude but it works :-).
thank you so much, You are always present
