Target link not working


Recommended Posts

This link is driving me crazy

<a id ="savepdf" href="invoice.php?invoice_id=<?=$invoiceID?>"value="Save This Invoice"><button class="block" id ="printbtn" onclick="myFunction()";>Save Invoice</button></a>


when a user selects this link it works ok saves a pdf file to a folder on server.

i want to relocate after link submitted.

If i use this link it does redirect but does not save the pdf file to folder on server

<a id ="savepdf" href="invoice.php?invoice_id=<?=$invoiceID?>"value="Save This Invoice" onclick="window.location.href='mypage.php'; ;return false;"><button class="block" id ="printbtn" onclick="myFunction()";>Save Invoice</button></a>

Sorry i thought posting the link would solve this. Ok i have a form once submitted it goes to invoice.php in invoice.php there are 2 buttons. One goes back to edit page if needed. The other button saves the page as a pdf file to a file on my server using dompdf. At the moment when you click save invoice an alert pops up with a reminder. Once you select ok it saves the page as a pdf file to a folder on the server but stays on the same page. I am trying to remove the alert and then once save invoice clicked it saves to file on folder and then shows another page?.

Here is full page invoice.php.


 invoice.php ( PHP script, ASCII text )

<?php require __DIR__.'/dompdf/autoload.inc.php'; require_once './controller.php'; use Dompdf\Dompdf; if(isset($_GET["invoice_id"]) && $_GET["invoice_id"]>0){ $invoiceID = $_GET["invoice_id"]; require_once './pdf.php'; $dompdf = new Dompdf(); $dompdf->loadHtml($html); $dompdf->render(); $output = $dompdf->output(); file_put_contents("./uploadinvoice/"."Invoice_Rose_Joinery_".$_GET["invoice_id"].".pdf", $output); $invoicename = isset($client["name"]) ? $client["name"] : ""; $invoiceaddress1 = isset($client["address1"]) ? $client["address1"] : ""; $invoiceaddress2 = isset($client["address2"]) ? $client["address2"] : ""; $invoiceaddress3 = isset($client["address3"]) ? $client["address3"] : ""; $invoiceaddress4 = isset($client["address4"]) ? $client["address4"] : ""; $invoiceaddress5 = isset($client["address5"]) ? $client["address5"] : ""; $invoiceitem1 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem1"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem1"] :""; $invoiceitem2 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem2"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem2"] :""; $invoiceitem3 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem3"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem3"] :""; $invoiceitem4 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem4"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem4"] :""; $invoiceitem5 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem5"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem5"] :""; $invoiceitem6 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem6"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem6"] :""; $invoiceitem7 =isset($invoice["invoiceitem7"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem7"] :""; $invoiceitem1price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem1price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem1price"] : 0; $invoiceitem2price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem2price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem2price"] : 0; $invoiceitem3price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem3price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem3price"] : 0; $invoiceitem4price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem4price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem4price"] : 0; $invoiceitem5price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem5price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem5price"] : 0; $invoiceitem6price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem6price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem6price"] : 0; $invoiceitem7price = isset($invoice["invoiceitem7price"]) ? $invoice["invoiceitem7price"] : 0; $total = isset($invoice["total"]) ? $invoice["total"] : 0; $invoicedate = isset($invoice["invoiceDate"])? $invoice["invoiceDate"] :""; $invoicenumber = isset($invoice["invoiceNo"]) ? $invoice["invoiceNo"] : ""; $notes = isset($invoice["notes"]) ? $invoice["notes"] : ""; $sum1=$invoiceitem1price; $sum2=$invoiceitem2price; $sum3=$invoiceitem3price; $sum4=$invoiceitem4price; $sum5=$invoiceitem5price; $sum6=$invoiceitem6price; $sum7=$invoiceitem7price; $total = number_format($total, 2, ".", ""); $nameOfDay = $invoice["nameOfDay"]; $newDate = $invoice["created_at"]; } ?> <html> <head> <style type="text/css"> @media print { #printbtn { display : none; } } </style> <style type="text/css"> @media print { #backbtn { display : none; } } </style> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,> <style> <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Invoice</title> <meta name="generator" content="WYSIWYG Web Builder 14 - http://www.wysiwygwebbuilder.com"> <style type="text/css"> div#container { width: 320px; position: relative; margin: 0 auto 0 auto; text-align: left; } body { background-color: #FFFFFF; color: #000000; font-family: Arial; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12px; line-height: 1.1875; margin: 15; text-align: left; } a { color: #0000FF; text-decoration: none; } a:hover { color: #FF0000; text-decoration: none; } input:focus, textarea:focus, select:focus { outline: none; } @media only screen and (max-width: 320px) { div#container { width: 320px; } body { background-color: #FFFFFF; } } </style> <style> .back { display: block; width: 100%; border: none; background-color: #4CAF50; color: #000000; padding: 14px 28px; font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold; cursor: pointer; text-align: center; } </style> <style> .block { display: block; width: 100%; border: none; background-color: #4CAF50; color: #000000; padding: 14px 28px; font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold; cursor: pointer; text-align: center; } </style> <script> function myFunction() { alert("Your invoice will be saved to your account.

I don't see that code attempting to do a redirect. Please post the version you tried to make do the redirect since that is, after all, the one that doesn't work.

When you do post it, please use the Code <> button so it doesn't end up as that blob.
