'Basic example' not so basic...?

Sep 8, 2010 at 7:19 AM


I've downloaded the classes, and run the 'Basic example' from the documentation.  I'm getting an error on these three lines:

$myTextElement->setBold(); $myTextElement->setName('Verdana'); $myTextElement->setSize(22);


The error is: "Call to undefined method PHPWord_Section_Text::setBold()" for each one.  If they are commented out the document is written and saved with no error.


Then, when I try to open the document, I can't since it is "corrupted".  Details>>> says "A document must contain exactly one root element."


Similar problem in 'Examples' folder: I can open 'test.docx' just fine.  Then run the 'test.php' script in the 'Examples' folder with no error.  Then re-open 'test.docx' -> file corrupted. Details>>>Incorrect Processing Instruction Syntax.


I'm working with Word 2010 x64.  Any insights?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Hermes,

The example is almost complete. It's just that in one class the Style object is not defined properly. My bugfix was to:

- Edit Section/Text.php and replace line 77 with:
          $this->_styleFont = new PHPWord_Style_Font('text');
- Edit PHPWord.php and replace all occurencese of $myTextElement with $myTextElement->getFontStyle() to get the Style object, so the line you are complaining about would become:

Best regards,
