    Step1- For converting html to pdf  first we have to download dompdf, then we have to  extract it and  put it into /app/Vendor.

    Step2- Then we have to import this dompdf folder and its file dompdf_config.inc.php by using below code in our controller.

    App::import('Vendor', 'dompdf',array('file'=>'dompdf/dompdf_config.inc.php'));
    

    step3- Then we have to create view which contain link on which we click, it will converts html to pdf.

    Our view contain below code:-

     <?php echo $this->Html->link('DomPdf',array('controller'=>'Users','action'=>'dompdf'));
    	 	  ?>

    step4- Then we have to create function in our controller which contain the logic for html to pdf conversion.

     public function dompdf(){
    
              $dompdf =  new DOMPDF();
                      
                $result = $this->User->find('all');
                $html1= "";
                foreach ($result as $value) {
    
                    $html1 = $html1."<tr><td>".$value['User']['id']."</td>
                    <td>".$value['User']['username']."</td>
                    <td>".$value['User']['phone']."</td>
                    <td>".$value['User']['email']."</td>
                   
                    <td>".$value['User']['gender']."</td></tr>";
                }
    
                $html = '<html>
                <body>
                <p>Users List:</p>
                <table border=1>
                <tr>
                <th>ID</th>
                <th>Name</th>
                <th>Phone No:</th>
                <th>Email Id</th>
                
                <th>Pic</th>
                </tr>'.$html1.'
                </table>
                </body>
                </html>
                ';
              $dompdf->load_html($html);
    
              $dompdf->render();
    
              $output = $dompdf->output();
              file_put_contents("file.pdf", $output);
            
       }

    In above code we our fetching data from our database then converting that data into html then converting it into pdf.
