bool cpdf_translate(pdfdoc, x, y);
resource pdfdoc: PDF document identifier
double x: X coordinate

Moves the coordinates origin of the current document. Normally coordinates 0,0 refers to the lower left corner, but using cpdf_translate() , this origin can be moved to any point on the page.

If the coordinate system needs to be reset after translating an object, use cpdf_save() and cpdf_restore() .


Since versions 3.0.8 and 4.0


Example 183. Translate coordinate system

$cpdf = cpdf_open(0, "test.pdf");

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

cpdf_rect($cpdf, 10, 10, 180, 30);
cpdf_setgray_fill($cpdf, 0);

// move coordinate origin
cpdf_translate($cpdf, 100, 100);

// draw the same rectangle
cpdf_rect($cpdf, 10, 10, 180, 30);

// close and write document
