Outputs text specified by text and the coordinates x and y . The x and y coordinates start from 0,0 at the bottom left of the page.
If the option unit length paramter mode is set to 0 or omitted the default unit as specified for the page is used, otherrwise the coordinates are measured in PostScript points disregarding the current unit of unit of measurement. The example shows a better explanation of this.
orientation sets the angle of rotation in degrees of the text in a counter clockwise direction.
alignmode determines the text alignment when displayed and can be any of the following constants.
// start a PDF document $cpdf = cpdf_open(0, "test.pdf"); // create a 600x400 page cpdf_page_init($cpdf, 1, 0, 600, 400, 1); cpdf_begin_text($cpdf); cpdf_set_font($cpdf, "Helvetica", 18, "WinAnsiEncoding"); // minimal options cpdf_set_text_pos($cpdf, 10, 500); cpdf_text($cpdf, "First use"); // with coordinates cpdf_text($cpdf, "Second use", 10, 450); // with units // note how the coordinates are the same as the second use cpdf_text($cpdf, "Third use", 50, 350, 100); // with orentation cpdf_text($cpdf, "Fourth use", 50, 350, 0, 90); // with align mode // note the same coordinates used for comparison cpdf_text($cpdf, "Fifth use", 90, 300, 0, 0, 4); cpdf_text($cpdf, "Sixth use", 90, 300, 0, 0, 7); cpdf_end_text($cpdf); // close and write document cpdf_finalize($cpdf); cpdf_close($cpdf);
