cpdf_set_page_animation — Sets transition between pages


bool cpdf_set_page_animation(pdfdoc, transition, duration, direction, orientation, inout);

double direction: Transition direction
int orientation: Transition border orientation

Sets the animation style when moving from opening or page to page in a PDF document. The types of animations available are covered in the table below. While some arguments are not used for some function, all arguments must be specified when using this function. For example, the wipe and glitter transition types require a value for direction . If using other function types, include a value of 0 for this parameter.

duration specifies how long the effect lasts for and is measured in seconds.

direction specifies the direction of motion of animation boundaries in degrees. A value of 0 moves the animation right, 90 degrees upward, 180 degrees left and 270 degrees moves the animation down. This parameter is applicable only to wipe (4) and glitter (6) transition types.

orientation specifies the orientation of the animation borders. A value of 1 specifies a horizontal orientation and a value of 0 specifies a vertical orientation. This parameter is applicable only to split (1), and blinds (2) animation types.

inout specifies the in-out direction of the animation. A value of 1 sets the animation direction inwards and a value of 0 sets the animation direction outwards. This paramter is applicable only to split (1) and box (3) animation types.

Value Name Description
0 None No transition
1 Split Two lines sweeping across the screen reveal the page
2 Blinds Multiple lines sweeping across the screen reveal the page
3 Box A box reveals the page
4 Wipe A single line sweeping across the screen reveals the page
5 Dissolve The old page dissolves to reveal the page,
6 Glitter The dissolve effect moves from one screen edge to another
7 Replace The old page is simply replaced by the new page (default)

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

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

// display some text on the page
cpdf_set_font($cpdf, "Helvetica", 18, "WinAnsiEncoding");
cpdf_show_xy($cpdf, "First page", 50, 500);

// set a dissolving transition (5) 
// with duration of 4 seconds
// direction, orientaion and pahe in/out not used
cpdf_set_page_animation($cpdf, 5, 4, 0, 0, 0);

// create the second page
cpdf_page_init($cpdf, 2, 0, 400, 400, 1);
cpdf_set_font($cpdf, "Helvetica", 18, "WinAnsiEncoding");
cpdf_show_xy($cpdf, "Next page", 50, 300);
