    Getting current source code into a variable

    Hi all,

    I'm having a bit of a headache with this... I have a page that is dynamically generated by a PHP Code. It is a personalised astrology report. I am trying to add the ability to download the page as a PDF File. I am trying to use something called DOMPDF but my first hurdle is getting the current page's source code into a variable.

    I have tried using file_get_contents() but it always returns blank! I assume that is because the page is dynamically created.

    Is there a way I can get the HTML Source Code of the current page AFTER it has rendered and then store it into a variable which I can then pass through a form to my dompdf script...

    for example, this is what I have so far:

    PHP Code:
    <?php $pdfhtml file_get_contents(); ?>
    <form action="pdfscript.php" method="post" name="pdf">
    <input type="hidden" name="html" value="<?php echo $pdfhtml?>" />
    <input type="submit" value="Download" />
    And then my pdfscript.php file is fetching the "html" value like this:

    PHP Code:
    $html $_POST['name'];
    But it is always blank!

    Help Please????

    file_get_contents needs to know what file... to get the contents of....

    Never grow up. The instant you do, you lose all ability to imagine great things, for fear of reality crashing in.
