Output to pdf in browser issue

Go to solution Solved by kellyalan,

Hello and thanks in advance for any advice


until recently, when our pdf was displayed in the browser, the whole pdf showed up - now (within the past 2-3 months) only about 1/3 of it shows


Here's the page http://www.manofsteelesports.com/nonjphp/report.php?sid=128&a=d728d31d84495231a61b35d1ad7ccdcd&b=pdf


I've looked at this in both Chrome and IE


the php statement we're using in the PHP file that converts the HTML to pdf is    $pdf->Output(); //Outputs on browser screen


Any ideas on why this is happening and how to fix it?

I think you are talking about the fact that the embedded object is only taking up a small portion of the vertical space. I don't quite understand it either, but here is a fix.


1) Add the following to the BODY tag: style="overflow:hidden; height:100%;"



2) Add the following to the EMBED tag: style="position: absolute;"


I tested it with your page and it worked for me. Of course, you could also just put these properties int he appropriate style sheet as well.

Thanks for the reply -- I tested it also by adding these to a test html page and uploading it -- however, do you have any advice as to how to find the original file that brings this report together to display it in the browser? 


I've downloaded the entire file, searched for embed and body - nothing is coming up. Isn't there one file that brings all of the pieces together? 


For example - here's the test page http://manofsteelesports.com/nonjphp/test-pdf.html


here's the "real" page - http://manofsteelesports.com/nonjphp/report.php?sid=128&a=d728d31d84495231a61b35d1ad7ccdcd&b=pdf


Really appreciate your help!
