I want to export the HTML page into a PDF file when the user clicks GeneratePDF button. I have successfully exported the HTML page into a PDF file but from the second click, I am unable to download the data to a PDF file. I am not sure where I went wrong in the code.

Please check the code here:

$(function() {

  var doc = new jsPDF();

  var specialElementHandlers = {

    '#editor': function(element, renderer) {

      return true;

    }

  };

  $('#cmd').click(function() {

    doc.fromHTML($('#target').html(), 15, 15, {

      'width': 170,

      'elementHandlers': specialElementHandlers

    });

    doc.save('sample-file.pdf');

  });

});

    <p>Feedback form with screenshot This script allows you to create feedback forms which include a screenshot, created on the clients browser, along with the form. The screenshot is based on the DOM and as such may not be 100% accurate to the real representation

      as it does not make an actual screenshot, but builds the screenshot based on the information available on the page. How does it work? The script is based on the html2canvas library, which renders the current page as a canvas image, by reading the

      DOM and the different styles applied to the elements. This script adds the options for the user to draw elements on top of that image, such as mark points of interest on the image along with the feedback they send. It does not require any rendering

      from the server, as the whole image is created on the clients browser. No plugins, no flash, no interaction needed from the server, just pure JavaScript! Browser compatibility Firefox 3.5+ Newer versions of Google Chrome, Safari & Opera IE9

    </p>

  </div>

  <button id="cmd">generate PDF</button>

</body>

</html>

This is because you define your “doc” variable outside of your click event. The first time you click the button the doc variable contains a new jsPDF object. But when you click for a second time, this variable can’t be used in the same way anymore. As it is already defined and used the previous time.

Change it to:

$(function () {

    var specialElementHandlers = {

        '#editor': function (element,renderer) {

            return true;

        }

    };

 $('#cmd').click(function () {

        var doc = new jsPDF();

        doc.fromHTML(

            $('#target').html(), 15, 15, 

            { 'width': 170, 'elementHandlers': specialElementHandlers }, 

            function(){ doc.save('sample-file.pdf'); }

        );

    });  

});
