How to properly use jsPDF library

you can use pdf from html as follows,

Step 1: Add the following script to the header

<script src=""></script>

or download locally

Step 2: Add HTML script to execute jsPDF code

Customize this to pass the identifier or just change #content to be the identifier you need.

    function demoFromHTML() {
        var pdf = new jsPDF('p', 'pt', 'letter');
        // source can be HTML-formatted string, or a reference
        // to an actual DOM element from which the text will be scraped.
        source = $('#content')[0];

        // we support special element handlers. Register them with jQuery-style 
        // ID selector for either ID or node name. ("#iAmID", "div", "span" etc.)
        // There is no support for any other type of selectors 
        // (class, of compound) at this time.
        specialElementHandlers = {
            // element with id of "bypass" - jQuery style selector
            '#bypassme': function (element, renderer) {
                // true = "handled elsewhere, bypass text extraction"
                return true
        margins = {
            top: 80,
            bottom: 60,
            left: 40,
            width: 522
        // all coords and widths are in jsPDF instance's declared units
        // 'inches' in this case
            source, // HTML string or DOM elem ref.
            margins.left, // x coord
  , { // y coord
                'width': margins.width, // max width of content on PDF
                'elementHandlers': specialElementHandlers

            function (dispose) {
                // dispose: object with X, Y of the last line add to the PDF 
                //          this allow the insertion of new lines after html
            }, margins

Step 3: Add your body content

<a href="javascript:demoFromHTML()" class="button">Run Code</a>
<div id="content">
        We support special element handlers. Register them with jQuery-style.
