TechTip: Creating PDF Files with PHP, Part II

Add more tricks to your FPDF toolbox and learn how to control "overflow" printing.

jan_jorgensenWritten by Jan Jorgensen

In my last TechTip, I introduced you to FPDF. This time, I will dig a little deeper into this great tool and provide you with a tip that lets you print out data and at the same time use the built-in overflow control in the FPDF class.


So sit back and let your thoughts fly back to the good ol' days of the RPG cycle with 1P and LR.

LANSA Announces aXes Mobile for Wireless Access to 5250 Applications

The tool allows easy access to existing RPG and COBOL applications while providing RPG and COBOL programmers a way to employ existing skills to build entirely new mobile solutions.

chris_smithWritten by Chris Smith

The growth in mobile computing, and the need for applications that support it, are on the rise. The iPhone, iPad, and Android operating system have ported transactional computing into the pocket and purse. In a recent IBM survey of more than 2000 IT developers and specialists from around the world, more than half said they expect mobile application development to surpass application development on all other traditional platforms within the next five years. LANSA is making it easier for RPG and COBOL developers to ride this wave with this week's introduction of aXes Mobile.
