}
}

$pdf = new MYPDF(PDF_PAGE_ORIENTATION, PDF_UNIT, PDF_PAGE_FORMAT, true, ‘UTF-8’, false); //Default for UTF-8 unicode
//$pdf = new MYPDF(PDF_PAGE_ORIENTATION, PDF_UNIT, PDF_PAGE_FORMAT, false, ‘ISO-8859-1′, false); // set unicode to ISO-8859-1 so special chars like æ, ø, å will work.
$pdf->SetCreator(PDF_CREATOR);
// set default header data
$pdf->setHeaderData($ln=”, $lw=0, $ht=”, $hs='<table id=”head” cellpadding=”1″ cellspacing=”1″ style=”text-align:center;”><tr><td>All Category Report</td></tr></table>’, $tc=array(0,0,0), $lc=array(0,0,0));
// set header and footer fonts
