I've been using fpdf to create pdf files for my site. All has been well
for over a year. Suddenly I have a problem wherein IE 10 on W7 crashes
when I try to print one of these pdfs created by my php scripts.
The pdf files that I create seem fine. If I bring one up in IE and then
save it to my drive, I can then exit IE and go open the pdf and print it
I have removed my pdf printer drivers from my system and that hasn't
improved my situation. No luck there.
The exact scenario is:
- script generates pdf and opens it in a new target window;
- user clicks on print toolbar icon or File,Print;
- print dialog opens; here I see some problems in that the (very
complex) dialog is not displaying correctly with controls misaligned or
overlaying other controls;
- click on Ok to execute the print to printer and nothing happens; wait
5 minutes and still nothing;
- NOW the problems begin; when the window with the pdf in it is closed,
in about 2 seconds I get a dialog box telling me IE has stopped working.
Note that the problem only occurs when I attempt to print. If my script
opens the pdf target window and I simply close it - no problems occur.
BUT - if I actually open a print dialog I get a crash whether I click OK
or Cancel, as soon as I close the window containing the pdf.
My question is does anyone have problems with fpdf lately? Since my
files seem to be completely normal to adobe reader I don't think their
content is at fault. It seems more like IE is not handling them and I
can't find anything online about this.
I'm really hoping this is a problem wtih fpdf rather than IE since
solutions are more apt to come out of this forum than the great wizards
of M$ Oz.
