Example 951. Open basic GD created image


// create an image in GD
// you'll need GD support for this
$im = imagecreate(200,200);
$red = imagecolorallocate($im,255,0,0);
$white = imagecolorallocate($im,255,255,255);
$green = imagecolorallocate($im,0,255,0);
imagearc($im,100, 100, 180, 150, 0, 360, $white);
imagearc($im,100, 100, 70, 90, 90, 270, $green);
imagearc($im,100, 100, 50, 50, 270, 90, $green);

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

// load image from GD
$pim = pdf_open_memory_image($pdf, $im);
pdf_place_image($pdf, $pim, 100, 100, 1);
pdf_close_image($pdf, $pim);


// output 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;
