pdf_arcn — Draws an arc


bool pdf_arcn(pdf, x, y, radius, start, end);
resource pdf: PDF object identifier
double x: Starting x coordinate
double y: Starting y coordinate
double radius: Radius
double start: Start angle
double end: End angle


Always TRUE


Draws an arc with the curve origin (0 degrees) starting at x , y . The arcs curves up and to the left from the origin point in an anticlockwise direction. Some trial and error may be required to understand how the arc behaves when not using start and and end angles which are not 0 degrees. Don't forget to use pdf_stroke() to stroke the object.

In the example below, compare the output with that from pdf_arc() .


Since version 4.0.5


Example 913. Draw two arcs


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

// draw arc from 90 to 180 degrees
pdf_arcn($pdf, 200, 350, 50, 90, 180);

$font = pdf_findfont($pdf, "Courier", "host", 0);
pdf_setfont($pdf, $font, 20);
pdf_show_xy($pdf, "Hello World", 200, 350);

// draw second arc from 270 to 0 degrees
pdf_arcn($pdf, 330, 350, 50, 270, 0);


// display the 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;
