  1. Hi, I'm using the new Caspio PDF report download option. I'm noticing that my hidden columns show up on the PDF. Previously, I was using the Caspio PDF generator code provided by Caspio based on my account type and the hidden columns remained hidden. I tried placing the hide column JavaScript in the source code for the PDF configuration but that does not seem to work. Does anyone know how to hide columns on the tabular reports using the new PDF feature? I'm using the the data in the hidden columns for SQL calculation purposes but the end user does not need to see the raw math. As always, I appreciate the input. Thanks, Bre
  2. Hello All, I just wanted to share this link with everyone in case you are looking to create a quick PDF from a DataPage: http://pdfcrowd.com/save-to-pdf/ You can simply add this line of code to create a link to generate a PDF: <a href="//pdfcrowd.com/url_to_pdf/">Save to PDF</a> Just wanted to share this with everyone!
  3. I am aware of other posts in Ideabox where users have long since been requesting a way for non-corporate account members to be able to print out or output a PDF version of multipage reports. I have been searching for a way of doing this & cannot find anything. There may be a way of doing this using code but I am using Caspio primarily because I do not know code. I suppose usability of Caspio without this feature may be OK for some but I cannot see any point without being able to print out all the captured data or at least mail PDF reports when needed. The step up to Corporate account package is more than threefold. This is a barrier to further development in my case.
  4. Hi, We are in the final stages of a project where users are able to download a PDF version of the responses they have submitted. The PDF document is several pages long and is designed as a professional customised template. We want to be able to save all users PDF files in the CASPIO database so they can access the files in the future without having to generate them again from the CASPIO data page. We also want to be able to mass download all PDF files from all users at once (over 900 members). This is complicated by the fact that parameters cannot be passed to the PDF generator within CASPIO. We would like to know if there is a solution for using JavaScript that will generate the PDF file (perhaps as a standard data page) and then when the download link is pressed it downloads the file to the users hard drive, but also uploads the file to the CASPIO database? I've got as far knowing this command will allow different types of files that can be uploaded: <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> document.getElementById("InsertRecordfilename").setAttribute("accept","application/pdf"); </SCRIPT> Is it possible to upload the present data page using a similar command? Thanks Scott
  5. We have a webpage consisting of multiple datapages. Some datapages contain HTML. Some datapages contain images. Some datapages contain uploaded PDF files. The PDF files may be 1 to 15 pages long. We can print the entire webpage and the datapages with images print fine. However, we can't figure out how to print the webpage AND the PDF files with a single print button.
  6. Is there an ability to add a PDF file for downloading on the details or report pages? I would like to add a corresponding PDF to each database entry and have it available for download from the details pages of the results. Thank you in advance for your help!
  7. I have a standard insurance form that cannot be recreated in an HTML Block so I would like to export data into directly into a PDF Form. Any functionality built or known? Or is there another Form Design Tool I can replicate the current form and have it fill directly from Caspio datapage functions? Finally, if all else is impossible, is there a way to image the blank form and combine the image with the data?
  8. I'd put this in an old thread but I thought I should ask it anew so someone might notice. I'm trying to utilize the Google Viewer solution to show a pdf in an html block in a datapage but can't get it to work. I've got a Details datapage, authenticated, that uses a table that stores files. In this case, a pdf file in Caspio Bridge's Files section. This test example's file path in the field "File_Name" is /TestPdf.pdf. The code isn't working and I can't figure out why. All I get is a 'No Preview Available' message. Does the user need to be signed into to Google Docs for this to work? Is there a prefix that needs to go in from of the File_Name field since it's just /TestPdf.pdf? Any help would be really appreciated! <iframe id="iframe_pdf" style="width:80%; height: 1100px; display: none;" align="middle" frameborder="0"></iframe> <script> document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event){ if(!("[@field:File_Name/]" == "")){ embed_pdf(); } }); function embed_pdf(){ var google_link= "https://docs.google.com/gview?url="; var google_param = "&embedded=true"; var pdf_link = "[@field:File_Name/]"; var encoded_pdf_link = encodeURIComponent(pdf_link); var iframe_window = document.getElementById("iframe_pdf"); iframe_window.style.display = "block"; iframe_window.src=google_link + encoded_pdf_link + google_param; } </script>
  9. My users upload PDF files. When needed, they would like to view these files later as embeded documents within a datapage. The following shows how to embed pdfs, but only pdf NOT stored on the caspio database? http://howto.caspio.com/tech-tips/tech-tip-embed-documents-in-datapages.html Thanks for the help.
  10. Hi, I am building a dynamic document that comprises of first page one followed by several pages of wording and a last page. The first page and last page get data from multiple fields in Table A. The wording pages get data from a multiple records in Table B, but only from a single field (ie. each record in the wording table represents a paragraph that is marked up in html for formatting). Ultimately I want my users to be able to download the complete document as a single PDF. I found the Details Data Page works well for to PDF the first and last page as I can add some calculated values and set page breaks where I want to be using the PDF option. I also found that a table data page works well for the wording as I can query the wording table and display all the paragraphs as a table. However I’m struggling to combine the two that results in a usable PDF. I tried using two data pages (Details and Table) with an iframe to embed the wording from the Table within the Details Data Page. This worked to a point but I struggled to dynamically size the iframe when the wording went over a page but more crucially the iframe split some of the sentences in half when I created the PDF as it treated the iframe content like an image rather than lines of text. So I stopped this approach. I found when I added all the paragraphs manually to a Text(64000) field I can get the wording to display correctly. So my question is - does anyone know if it’s possible to combine the contents of the same field from multiple records in the same table into a single Text(64000) field? Either using a triggered action or a virtual field? I think if I can do this then I can probably create PDF documents that include my fields plus the table content. Many thanks for your thoughts Jay
