Hello all! i have written the following code: As you can see there is a for loop to go through some values and display them in the generated pdf. The problem is that all the values are being written at the same place. I have tried to insert a new line but it does not seem to work. Can anyone suggest me how i can do it? Do i need to write a nested for loop so that it the values at different y positions?

$pdf = pdf_new();

            // open a file
            pdf_open_file($pdf, "C:/xampp/htdocs/final/6.pdf");
