hi

Well if you are using rupdf plugin then u can directly define the
header,content and the footer by specifying the path or rendering file
thru controller..

I have already checked it,but what i need is to give custom layout like, color of text, its positioning, variable size of the fonts, giving margins etc.

well all that properties u can set with the help of css

the whole file will get embedded into the pdf so u can give inline css
which will be directly reflected on the generated pdf..

Have u tried this?
