This filter can be used to add or edit settings when a new PDF is created using the GPDFAPI::add_pdf() method. Due to the way the software is architected, this filter doesn't fire when a PDF is created via the UI. See the update PDF filters see gfpdf_form_update_pdf instead.

You also have the option to use the gfpdf_form_add_pdf_$form_id filter.


$pdf | array

  • The PDF settings

$form_id | integer

  • The current Gravity Forms ID the PDF is being added to


In this snippet we're adding a new custom setting to the PDF settings:

add_action( 'gfpdf_form_add_pdf', function( $pdf, $form_id ) {
$pdf['prefix_custom_setting'] = 'My Custom Setting';
return $pdf;
}, 10, 2 );

You can also specifically target a form:

add_action( 'gfpdf_form_add_pdf_2', function( $pdf ) { }, 10 );
