The box model
A template consists of boxes. The boxes can simply be added to your template by drag and drop. You can resize and move the boxes with your mouse. If you want more precision, you can manually define the box dimensions.
Each box can have a different content type (hereinafter referred to as „box type “).
In this version, the following box types are included:
1) The „Text Area“ box type
With the help of this box type, you can add individual texts. Text colour, font art (Arial, Helvetica, Courier, Symbol, Times, Symbol, ZapfDingbats and every custom font) and font size can be customized. For the content, you have an WYSIWYG-editor with the following formatting options:
- Inline images
- Horizontal ruler
- You can use placeholders in the text!
2) The „Image“ box type
With this box type, you can add images. The following image formats are supported: JPEG, PNG and GIF.
3) The „Table“ box type
With this box type, dynamic tables can be created. Just define a Data Source (an Array which contains the column definitions and the row data) and this box will render the data into a pretty table. You can also define the cell aligns, the text colour, the border colour, the font art and the font size.
Want more box types?
The PDF Designer has been programmed modularly. This has the advantage that this add-on can be extended by new box types. In the future, we intend developing further box types.
If you have a specific box type in mind or if you need special box types for your business don’t hesitate to contact us! We’ll turn your ideas into reality and take the responsibility for your projects!
