cpdf_rotate_text — Rotate text


bool cpdf_rotate_text(pdfdoc, angle);
resource pdfdoc: PDF document identifier
double angle: Angle of rotation


TRUE on success or FALSE on error


Rotates text in a counter-clockwise direction by the amount of degrees specified by angle .

Drawing vertical text is possible using this system, but a more elegant approach is to use pdf_save() and pdf_restore()


Since versions 3.0.9 and 4.0


Example 147. Rotate text

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

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

// start drawing text
cpdf_set_font($cpdf, "Helvetica", 15, "WinAnsiEncoding");

// set text drawing position
cpdf_set_text_pos($cpdf, 50, 500);

// rotate text by 45 degrees
cpdf_rotate_text($cpdf, 45);
cpdf_show($cpdf, "Helvetica");

// change font
cpdf_set_font($cpdf, "Courier", 25, "WinAnsiEncoding");

// change the text drawing position
cpdf_set_text_pos($cpdf, 10, 450);
cpdf_show($cpdf, "Courier");


// close and write document
