What is PhpDig?
PhpDig is a PHP MySQL based
Web Spider & Search Engine.



pdf_add_thumbnail — Add an image as a thumbnail for the current page.


bool pdf_add_thumbnail(pdf, image);
resource pdf: PDF object identifier
int image: Image identifier


Always TRUE


Creates a thumbnail which appears in the thumbnail pane of most Acrobat readers. The image parameter is an image handler returned from pdf_open_image() or pdf_open_image_file() .

The thumbnail image must be no greater than 106x106 pixels in size and must be either a greyscale, rgb or rgb indexed file. Adding a thumbnail does not make a snapshot of the page itself but merely inserts an image as a thumbnail.

In the example below, note how the thumbnails pane is automatically opened using pdf_set_value() .


Since version 4.0.5


Example 910. Add a thumbnail


// create new document
$pdf = pdf_new();
pdf_begin_page($pdf, 500, 700);

// display thumbnails pane open by default
pdf_set_parameter($pdf, "openmode", "thumbnails");

// insert thumbnail image
$im = pdf_open_image_file($pdf, "png", "thumbnail.png");
pdf_add_thumbnail($pdf, $im);
pdf_close_image($pdf, $im); 

$font = pdf_findfont($pdf, "Courier", "host", 0);
pdf_setfont($pdf, $font, 20);
pdf_show_xy($pdf, "Hello World", 50, 650);


// display PDF document
$data = pdf_get_buffer($pdf);
header("Content-type: application/pdf");
header("Content-disposition: inline; filename=test.pdf");
header("Content-length: " . strlen($data));
echo $data;
