            How to send pdf generated from screen shot in JavaScript
            Asked 2022-Apr-10 at 12:57

            Objective - Take a screenshot of the page, then make pdf of that and send that pdf to the spring boot backend.

            I have implemented the functionality to take the screenshot and convert it into pdf using html2canvas and pdfmake JavaScript libraries.

            Issue - I don't know how to send the generated pdf to the backend. I got to know about base64 encode but I am still confused.

            Code -



            Answered 2022-Apr-10 at 12:57

            According to the docs of pdfmake you're able to get the generated PDF as a Blob with the getBlob method. The Blob will be a binary representation of your PDF which you can send to your server.

            Blobs need to be wrapped inside a FormData object before they can be sent.

            Edit: Switch to the latest version (1.4.1) of html2canvas. The older version didn't work properly. The latest versions uses Promises which allows us to use async functions and, in my opinion, makes your code more readable.

            The beta version of pdfmake uses Promises instead of a callback function, but the latest stable version (0.2.5) does not. But we can solve this by wrapping the callback with a Promise to still be able to use the async / await syntax.

            Unit of size using in pdfmake library
            Asked 2022-Mar-14 at 01:01

            what is the unit size used for pageSize in pdfmake :



            Answered 2022-Mar-14 at 01:01

            Pdfmake uses points (pt) as a unit of measure (this goes both for page size and margin size).

            In the source code of the library we can see that A4 paper is 595.35 x 841.995 pt. Since A4 is 210 x 297 mm or 8.3 x 11.7 in, we can easily compute the conversion ratio.

            1 mm = 2.835 pt

            1 in = approx. 71.729 pt

            See this discussion for more details.

            Cannot call method in my service inside my component in Angular
            Asked 2022-Jan-14 at 22:18

            I am Trying to make a shared download as pdf method in my service file. But when i try to call my method in my app component it gives 'Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'nativeElement')' error. The Download method works perfectly when I call it directly in my app component. #here is my download.service.ts#



            Answered 2022-Jan-14 at 22:18

            I would suggest to remove the ViewChild located inside your service and to add an addtional parameter to your downlodpdf method of type ElementRef. So you could pass necessarry ElementRefs to the service directly.

            @ViewChild is only supported for classes decorated with @Component or @Directive. You can read more inside the angular @ViewChild documentation.

            You will need to specify the text attribute and you do not need to specify the extend attribute, unless you want to have dropdown buttons in the collection. This worked for me:

            This is how the JSON looks like:



            Answered 2021-Nov-26 at 05:43

            You should use JSON.stringify instead of .toString()

            JSON.stringify() method converts a JavaScript value to a JSON string,

            optionally replacing values if a replacer function is specified, or optionally including only the specified properties if a replacer array is specified.
