| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

    public function sendEmail(Request $request)
        $data["email"] = "";
        $data["title"] = "From";
        $data["body"] = "Hello. How to generate laravel 9 pdf and after generating pdf send it in email";

            $message->to($data["email"], $data["email"])
                    ->attachData($pdf->output(), "text.pdf");
