cpdf_clip — Clips to current path


bool cpdf_clip(pdfdoc);
resource pdfdoc: PDF document identifier


TRUE on success or FALSE on error


Clips around the current drawing path. This can be used to create a cutout effect and to ensure shapes fit inside a spcified area.

In the example below, a cpdf_newpath() is used to create a clipping path in the shape of a rectangle and the clipping path cleared with a second call to cpdf_newpath() so shapes can be drawn.


Since versions 3.0.8 and 4.0


Example 120. Create a clipping path

// start a PDF document
$cpdf = cpdf_open(0, "test.pdf");

// create a 600x400 page
cpdf_page_init($cpdf, 1, 0, 600, 400, 1);

// set the stroke gray amount
cpdf_setgray_stroke($cpdf, 0.0);

// set the linw width
cpdf_setlinewidth($cpdf, 0.2);

// save the current document state

// create the clipping path
cpdf_rect($cpdf, 50,50, 150, 90);

// create a shape and close the path
cpdf_arc($cpdf, 100, 100, 50, 30, 220, 0); 

// fill and stroke the shape and clipping path combined

// comment out next line to see clipping path
// also affect this shape
cpdf_rect($cpdf, 30,30, 100, 30);

// close and write document
