|In this short tip, we demonstrate using SQL Server to easily create a JSON document for testing in DynamicPDF Designer Online.
|Subreports Using Designer
|Nov 09, 2023
|Here at DynamicPDF, we have noticed several clients needing help distinguishing if they should use a Subreport rather than a ConditionalHeader or ConditionalFooter. ConditionalHeader elements and ConditionalFooter elements are convenient ways to add top-level information or column headers to a report. However, when you need to display substantial data in a header or footer, often the better choice is to use a Subreport. Here, we create a report illustrating why you might consider using a Subreport rather than a ConditionalHeader or ConditionalFooter.

|Using DynamicPDF API with bubble.io
|May 03, 2023

|HTML to PDF Feature Released

|We here at the DynamicPDF API are excited to announce that the DynamicPDF API can now convert HTML to PDF. With the addition of a new input type to the pdf endpoint, you can easily convert HTML pages to PDF documents. And you can specify raw HTML or a file path in your local storage system or in the DynamicPDF Cloud Storage. And we updated all client libraries to support HTML conversion. The HTML input type can also be mixed with other input types such as PDF, image, DLEX and page to create PDF documents with pages from multiple sources.
