pdf_setpolydash — Sets more complicated dash pattern


bool pdf_setpolydash(pdf, darray);
resource pdf: PDF object identifier
double darray: Dash array


Always TRUE


While basic dash patters can be set with pdf_setdash() , sometimes a more complex pattern is required. By passing an array of alternating bacl and white dash values to pdf_setpolydash() , a more complex pattern can be achieved.

All array values must be positive and have non-zero values with a maximum of 8 elements in the array.


Since version 4.0.5


Example 981. Create complex dash line


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

// set widening black dash
$dash = array(1.2, 0.2, 2.8);

// set line dash type
pdf_setpolydash($pdf, $dash);

// draw dashed lines
pdf_moveto($pdf, 200, 600);
pdf_lineto($pdf, 250, 500);
pdf_lineto($pdf, 300, 600);


// 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;
