---> I can't really post any patches cuz the the whole
code need to be rewritten. Or not everything but just a
part of it.
Ok: Here's what you have to do to fix your tables:
First of all - you have to take heed of the fact that when
you have a nested table, it will "break" the parent table
into two parts - the portion that was before and the other
portion that comes after the nested table ends.
So... We need a way to save every bit of information
about every table...
And here's the way I used to make it work for me:
I made a new class -> TABLE
<everything that the html2pdf code uses to create
NEXT - linked to nested table
LAST -- linked to parent.
Now as we encounter the tag <table>:
1) We'll call New Table
and well also set the new table's link to it's parent:
$this->table->next->last = $this->table
and now' we'll activate the new table:
$this->table = $this->table->next;
From now on the program will deal with the nested
But... We still have another problem to solve: The
write_table function is not used to handle multiple tables
in this manner so it will write every one of these tables
into a position 0,0.
So. We have to link a specific cell of some table to a
For that - We'll use table cell textbuffer and add a
specialcontent TABLE into it.... and in printbuffer - under
the new SWITCH call We'll add something like this:
... and then we call the write table function again :)
and after the call:
$this->table=$this->table->last; (back to parsing the
And that's the whole concept... We have to go OO guy's!
Also - to restore the setting changes after you finished
to read a nestedtable you'll have to make a new class
again... named settings... :) and put it under
HTML2FPDF and TABLE classes...
The rest of it is easy...
And also: because a parent table can have a multiple
nested tables, you might have to use the $this->next ...
as an array and mark the nested table array-id into the
textbuffer specialcontent for a right call :)
PS. You have to replace every occurrence of $this-
>whetevertablesetting to $this->table-
>whatevertablesetting in the code for this kind of change
to work... :P But trust me :) It's worth it.
